The Jewish school Ozar Hatorah, in Toulouse, France doesn't need to teach its students about anti-Semitism; it's on the curriculum of daily experience. Today, just months after an Islamist gunman shot and killed three students and a Rabbi at the school, another student, wearing a Star of David around his neck, was attacked on his train ride home. European Jewish Press reports that he was attacked verbally and then physically:

The victim, who wore identifiable religious symbols, was subjected to verbal insults in the train the first instance, according to the official announcement, which continued: "The teenager was then attacked in the platform toilets by two individuals who beat him up."

No wonder so many French Jews want to move to Israel.
