November 2014 has been a bad month for the Jews. And we’re not even at the mid-month mark yet.
On Nov. 10 alone, two Israeli Jews were stabbed to death by Palestinian Arab terrorists, two other Israeli Jews also stabbed, Israeli trains remain under repeated attacks and Jewish drivers on the roads continue to be targeted with vicious rock attacks.
A 25 year old woman died almost immediately after having been stabbed near the community of Allon Shvut, located southeast of Jerusalem, and an Israeli soldier eventually succumbed to stab wounds inflicted on him in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian Arab terrorist in Tel Aviv just hours earlier.
And across the ocean in France, there have been additional terrorist attacks on Jews.
First, a kosher sushi restaurant in the 17th district of Paris was firebombed on Thursday, Nov. 6, and just a few hours later a Jewish teen was assaulted outside of his school.
Only hours after a firebomb was hurled at a kosher restaurant in the 17th district of Paris, a group of French teenagers assaulted a Jewish boy outside of his school. The attacks took place within 4 miles of each other.
Diners were sitting in the restaurant when a group of African Muslims walked past, calling them “dirty Jews.” When the patrons did not react, the antagonists hurled stones at the front of the restaurant.
Within minutes a loud crash was heard when a firebomb smashed the front door of the restaurant. The firebomb ignited, but employees succeeded in putting out the fire before anyone was harmed.
The restaurant, which has a kosher certificate on the door, is an upscale sushi establishment in an upscale neighborhood near the Arch de Triomphe. It has been the scene of other instances where passers-by shout “dirty Jews” at patrons inside.
Just 12 hours after the Zekai Sushi restaurant was attacked, a Jewish student wearing a kippah was attacked by a gang of youths described as “African.” The student was beaten by the gang, who used their fists and elbows to strike him.
The student had been standing with a group of friends in front of his school, which has a large Jewish population.
Both incidents were reported to the police, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism.
The two incidents were reportedly unrelated.Lori Lowenthal Marcus
