Anti-Semitism in France is intensifying. The Protection Service of the Jewish Community said in its annual report that 2011 was a bad year but 2012 will be worse.
Since Mohamed Merah’s brutal murder of three children and a rabbi in the courtyard of a school in Toulouse on March 19, the number of violent attacks against Jews has grown. The Jewish communities in France are greatly alarmed. Many attribute the increase in violence against Jews to the death of Merah.
