Jewish schools in France being terrorized with threatening emails, phone calls

Less than two weeks after a Muslim gunman brutally murdered a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse, Jewish schools across France, including the one where the attack occurred, are receiving threatening emails and phone calls.

Staff at the Ozar Hatorah School in Toulouse where terrorist Mohammed Merah mercilessly killed Yonatan Sandler, his two young sons, and the 8-year-old daughter of the school's headmaster said they have been flooded with emails and phone calls threatening the lives of more students.

French news agency AFP reported that numerous emails had been sent to the school calling for the murder of more Jews and linking the justifying the recent killings as a response to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Many of the emails were signed, "The avenger of France and the French people."

These threats have been sent to numerous other Jewish schools in France, too, most of them belonging to the Ozar Hatorah school network. The head of the school network told AFP that he fears further anti-Semitic attacks.

Just this week, a 12-year-old Jewish boy was beaten by a gang of youths not far from the Ozar Hatorah school in Paris. His attackers reportedly shouted anti-Semitic epithets like "dirty Jew."
