France - Jewish History teacher stabbed in Marseille street by trio praising Islamic State. (TOI).
A teacher at a Jewish school in the French city of Marseille was harassed in the street and then stabbed on Wednesday night by three people professing support for Islamic State, prosecutors said.
Three people on two scooters, one of them wearing an Isis T-shirt, approached the teacher and showed him a picture on a mobile phone of Mohamed Merah, a homegrown Islamist militant who killed seven people in a series of attacks in southern France in 2012.
Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin said: “The three people insulted, threatened and then stabbed their victim in the arm and leg. They were interrupted by the arrival of a car and fled.”
The 57-year-old victim, who was wearing a kippa, was attacked about 8pm outside his home, a short distance from the school and synagogue complex, a source close to the investigation said. Hmmm......Time for Israelis to leave France and EU[rabia]. Read the full story here.
