Jewish Teens Attacked in France

Earlier this year, the terrorist attacks at a Paris newspaper and Jewish kosher deli highlighted the problem of Islamist extremism Europe is facing. More specifically, France – and the entirety of Europe – has become a dangerous place for the Jews who live there. This anti-Semitic violence was demonstrated again today, The Times of Israel reports, as two Jewish teens were attacked after leaving their French synagogue:

Two Jewish teens in France were robbed and beaten after leaving their Marseille synagogue …

According to the victims, the assailants said, “Dirty Jews, we will exterminate all of you,” before they were robbed and beaten. The Jewish teens required medical attention …

“Jewish citizens have become increasingly vulnerable targets,” the BNVCA said in a statement. “This gives rise to insecurity, despite the significant steps taken by the government to try to protect its Jewish citizens, and their places of worship.”
