French Jew in a French synagogue talks about rising anti-Semitism.

Mayor Serge Lafon told the newspaper that “many villagers recognized him” as a man who was believed to have been married with two children, a convert to Islam who studied Qur’an in a private home. He moved first to Toulouse, and then a year ago to Syria. Faranci exhorted Muslim viewers in the video to stage attacks in France.

At present, approximately 1,000 people are believed to have left France to join terror groups in Iraq and Syria. But only 375 are known to still be there, which leaves open the question about the whereabouts of the rest.


ISIS has actively recruited foreign fighters to its cause, trained them and then encouraged them to return to their countries of origin in order to spawn new terror cells. In France and elsewhere in Europe — and in the United States — anti-Semitism is rising.

The numbers and the reports speak for themselves.
