On Tuesday night, two Orthodox Jewish brothers in Bondy, in suburban Paris, were set upon by assailants, who forced them off the road, surrounded them, and then attempted to cut off one of the brother’s fingers.
The brothers were hospitalized in a state of shock.
The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, reported that while the Jewish brothers were being forced off the road by the other car, the driver and a passenger shouted anti-Semitic slogans such as “Dirty Jews, You’re going to die!”
After the Jews were forced off the road, several men came out of a hookah café, according to the case report published by the news website JSSNews. The alleged attackers surrounded the brothers, then kicked and punched them while threatening their lives if they moved. Then one assailant attempted to saw off the finger one of the brothers with a metal hacksaw.
As Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review pointed out:
This particularly gruesome incident is not an aberration. Jews need armed guards at all their major institutions, reminiscent of what Israel had to do for years during the intifada. The chief rabbi of Belgium said last year there is no future for Jews in Europe. It is actually safer for Jews living in Judea and Samaria near Middle Eastern Arabs than those living in parts of Europe because European countries don’t have a security apparatus to deal with suicidal immigration policies into western countries.
Horowitz adds, “According to Pew, most individuals in predominantly Muslim countries harbor virulent hatred for Jews. Obviously, if we bring in small numbers from these countries, it’s possible to assimilate some of them, but when admitted in such large quantities, we are invariably importing the values of the Middle East.”
