Constant anti-Semitism and growing terror attacks in France have left the French Jewish community in fear - The Fellowship just helped 105 more olim (immigrants) make aliyah to the Holy Land from France yesterday. The Express' Tom Batchelor reports on yet another attack today - this one a stabbing of a rabbi in Strasbourg - that once again illustrates the danger faced by European Jews:
The attacker, who is understood to have been arrested, shouted the Islamic phrase meaning God is great during the attack, according to reports in French media.
The 62-year-old victim, who is described as belonging to the orthodox Hasidic sect, was injured in the attack in the Jewish Quarter, 500 metres from the Great Synagogue of Strasbourg...
He said: “He was shocked. He is weak. He was hit in the abdominal region a few centimetres from a vital organ.”
Mr Levy was said to be wearing items of clothing that would identify him as a Hasidic Jew.
