Firebomb and Rocks Hurled at Jews Trapped in Paris Synagogues

Jews are once again being firebombed and attacked with rocks and bats as they cower in synagogues. In 2014. In Paris.

If you did not think it could happen again you were wrong.

Jews are being attacked again in broad daylight in Europe. And like once before, they cower inside, waiting for the “authorities” to save them.

This time, anti-Israel protesters swirled around the Synagogue Don Isaac Abravanel in Paris, screaming hate-filled epithets and hurling rocks and bottles as the Jews cowered inside, fearful for their lives. At another synagogue nearby, protesters tried to force their way into the building, armed with bats and chairs.

The police were called to assist the Jews to safety. This time they came. What if they didn’t?

Thousands of pro-terrorist protesters surrounded the French shul on Sunday, July 13, throwing rocks into the building as congregants waited inside for police support. They had come to the synagogue on Sunday for a ceremony to honor the memory of the three Israeli teens who were kidnapped and slain: Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frenkel. The Jews at the other Parisian synagogue were trapped inside after they had gone to attend services.

The protesters tried to attack the Jews because they claim Israelis are killing children in Gaza in what some are calling a massacre.

On Friday night a firebomb went off at the entrance to the synagogue Aulnay-sous-Bois which is a northeastern suburb of Paris. On Saturday a crowd outside a synagogue in an eastern suburb of Paris chanted “death to the Jews” and “slaughter the Jews” in both Arabic and French, and protesters spit on the Jews

So far no one has been hurt. And so far, the call is for the Israelis to show restraint. And so far, the Jews do not fight back, but instead wait for rescue from someone else, or for their leaders to write angry letters.

In Lyon, France, protesters waved Hamas flags and called for the murder of Zionists.

The Bureau of National Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism in France filed protests.

It’s happening again.

  30. Is very sad, nobody cares about the Jewish people, they say they love the God of the Israel, they say they love the holy writings of the people of Israel, they say they love the forefathers of the people of Israel, they say they love the stories of the people of Israel, they say they study the holy writing of the people of Israel, they even say they wait and deeply desire the time when the Mashiahj of the people of Israel will come, they even more claim to spect the fulfilling of the resurrection of the death promised to the People of Israel, but when the real needed time comes to chose sides they turn they back to the people of Israel, My People, what a shame they will be when The Almighty and Only One God of the People of Israel will ask them how they treated His People. It will be a time of sorrow for them because they will have to answer with the truth.

How true and sure are all of God’s words and promises. How great and unique is the God of Israel! He is God and there is none other!
