Tear gas was sprayed on the entrance to the synagogue. Although it was a non-lethal mixture, congregants suffered burning in their eyes and rashes on their skin.
Even if this incident didn’t result in fatalities, it is an act of terrorism. As it stands now, this synagogue in Bonneuil-sur-Marne is under police and military protection when in use. Let us not forget that in July 2014, Muslim rioters attacked a Paris synagogue and police were called in to rescue the congregants while another synagogue was firebombed. Lest we also forget the attack at the Hyper Cacher grocery store this past January two days after the Charlie Hebdo attacks which resulted in the deaths of four Jews. An attack, mind you, that President Obama and his lackeys went to great pains to describe as random rather than one motivated by anti-Semitism.
If it is de rigueur for Jews in France to worship while under armed guard and be subjected to violence, I cannot help but wonder if American Jewry can look forward to the same fate as a result of the influx of Syrian refugees.
