Unidentified Gunmen Open Fire at Paris Synagogue

David Ben Ichay synagogue bullet

Unidentified gunmen opened fire at a synagogue in Paris late Monday night, French police confirmed, EJP reported.

A bullet from an automatic weapon hit the window of the David Ben Ichay synagogue on rue Andre-Danjon, in Paris’s 19th district around 9:30 PM. It went through a closed window of the synagogue’s office and missed the rabbi and his assistant inside.

Police are investigating the attack, and are searching for two suspects who were seen nearby at the time of the shooting, EJP reported.

In separate incidents Sunday and Monday, two drivers intentionally plowed into pedestrians with their vehicles shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”), injuring dozens.

On Saturday a French convert to Islam was shot dead after attacking police officers with a knife while also crying “Allahu Akbar” in the central town of Joue-les-Tours.

Earlier this month, a young Jewish couple was robbed in their home and the woman was sexually assaulted in Creteil, outside Paris.

Between 500, 000 and 600, 000 Jews live in France, according to EJP, which reported that more than 7, 000 Jews have left France permanently in 2014.

Roger Cukierman, president of CRIF, the representative body of French Jewish organizations, has issued an extraordinary warning concerning the potential fate of his community.

“Jews will leave in large numbers and France will fall into the hands of either Shari’a Law or the Front National, ” he told a rally against anti-Semitism organized after the attack in Creteil.
