Breaking: Muslim Screaming “Allahu Akbar” Stabs Jew, Punches Rabbi in France
Rabbi Yehuda Malul of the Menuchat Shalom synagogue in Marseilles, France, was attacked this past weekend with another congregant while on their way to morning prayers.
The synagogue is located in the center of the southern French city, where there are many hareidi-religious Jews, synagogues and yeshivot.
According to a report posted on the Hebrew-language website Bhadarei Haredim, the attacker was a “young man of Arab appearance.”
The rabbi, who spoke with a writer at the website, said the attacker yelled, “Yahud, Allahu Akbar!” The attacker punched the rabbi with his fists, and he shouted again, “Itbah al-Yahud!” as the rabbi fell to the ground.
When the rabbi’s companion went to the rabbi’s side to try to protect him, the attacker pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the abdomen.
