Brussels Jewish Museum Deaths Rise to 4


It's been a lethal weekend for European Jewry. On Saturday, a shooting at the Brussels Jewish Museum left four people dead: an Israeli couple, a museum employee, and a volunteer. The gunman escaped and is still at large after a driver waiting for him in an Audi sped off before police could track him down. Just a few hours later, two Jewish men were assaulted as they walked towards their synagogues in suburban Paris. According to a recent global survey by the Anti-Defamation League, 27 percent of Belgians hold notably anti-Semitic views. A study last week also showed that 74 percent of French Jews want to leave the country, with a significant portion fearing anti-Semitism. The European Jewish Congress has been pushing for countries to devote greater security resources to Jewish communities after the 2012 attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse, France that left four people dead.
