Strange inscriptions such as "Biobananas" and "Charles" were also tagged on the graves but "no antisemitic inscriptions", said Valletoux on Twitter. The city council announced that a complaint will be filed by the city hall. "No claim and no spray paint were found on the spot," said the prosecution.Paris' deputy mayor, Audrey Pulvar, on the other hand, condemned on social media "an antisemitic act that belongs nowhere," creating the polemic on social media as some called her a '"hypocrite," adding that "these are Christian graves but that's okay, we are used to counting less than all the other minorities," the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles reported. The antisemitic character of the incident was not established, given the inscriptions were only found on Christians' graves. However, the symbolism of the swastikas, as well as the likely link between the words "Biobananas" and "Charles" to respectively "Shoananas" - the combination of the Hebrew name for the Holocaust with the French word for pineapple created by the well-known and condemned French antisemitic Dieudonne - and Charlie Hebdo - the infamous newspaper that was bloodily attacked in 2015 - is noticeable.Some other politicians reacted to the "degradation," among them France's Interior Minister, Gérald Darmanin who wrote on Twitter that he was "disgusted by the desecration of the cemetery", stressing that "everything will be done to find the authors of this ignominy."
#Fontainebleau. Je suis scandalisé et écœuré par la découverte, ce matin, de très nombreuses tombes profanées par des croix gammées. Des actes abjects et répugnants contre lesquels je vais déposer plainte. Jamais notre cimetière n'avait été la cible de tels crimes pic.twitter.com/Fm02RvWptm— Frédéric Valletoux (@fredvalletoux) December 28, 2020
"Abject, odious ... words are not enough to condemn these profanations which remind us, once again, of the importance of our fight against hatred," also reacted President of the French President Emmanuel Macon's party at the National Assembly, Christophe Castaner.

For Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France region, this desecration is a “despicable act” carried out by “neo-Nazis”.
Abjectes, odieuses... les mots ne suffisent pas à condamner ces profanations, qui nous rappellent, une fois de plus, l’importance de notre combat contre les haines.Sans jamais transiger; sans jamais négocier. https://t.co/IcY86eGsor— Christophe Castaner (@CCastaner) December 28, 2020
"The perpetrators of these heinous acts must be arrested and heavily condemned," tweeted Alfortville's Mayor, Luc Carvounas.
