New York City police tighten security at Jewish sites (following deadly attacks in France)

NEW YORK — New York police ramped up security at synagogues and other Jewish institutions citywide on Monday following the deadly attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse, France.

"Although there is no known specific threat against New York City, the NYPD has taken the precaution of stepping up coverage of Jewish neighborhoods and institutions in the city," Browne said in a statement.

"The NYPD's counter-terrorism posture is informed by events abroad, including the fatal attack on the Jewish school in Toulouse today," he said.

New York, home to more than 1.4 million Jews, has the largest Jewish population of any metropolitan area outside of Israel, said Levi Fishman, spokesman UJA-Federation of New York.

Following attacks abroad, the New York police typically reinforce security at corresponding locations such as hotels or the mass transit system.

In France, a gunman on a motor bike shot dead three children and a teacher at a Jewish school in Toulouse on Monday, just days after apparently killing three soldiers nearby.

Amish terrorists on the loose again, eh?

Who has that pic of their high tech transportation device?

I would immediately profile straw hats, suspenders, and buggies.

There were similar shootings of at least one Muslim and a Caribbean immigrant, or something, which makes me think it was NOT a jihadist.

No worries!

Terrorists only target locations that have outlawed your Constitutional rights.

The rest of us are safe from the cowards.

I am sure it was only an oversight to leave out crucial details: “... several buggies fled the scene”

We don’t know who the perps are but even if it was obviously a Muzzie I am sure they’d never mention it.

Yep, the same heavy caliber gun type was previously used to shoot three French paratroopers. Fox news said that the paratroopers were of Caribbean and North African heritage.

So I'm guessing that the shooter was a white French ultra-nationalist nazi, kind of like the shooter in the recent Norwegian massacre.

The Norwegian guy wasn’t anything but nuts, he even wanyed to ally with the Muzzies to take over Europe. Weirdo

Ever since the Obamaville opened up near my new office in NYC (a temporary stint — I hate NYC and hate not being armed), I’ve taken to wearing a bullet proof vest and carrying a heavy metal cane.

Our shul had what I call our “shabbos gun goys” who are off-duty cops, rather well armed — including one on the roof with a long gun.

It’s expensive.

Sadly, seriously.

I had several near-violent confrontations with Obamaville residents screaming anti-Israel slogans. Just walking along.

We routinely get death threats, letters, whatever at the Shul. So much such that it is no longer newsworthy.

During the Crown Height Pogrom, my wife’s family had their door kicked in by some of Holder’s People -— stopped by a legal shotgun held by an old man who survived the Shoa.

Wow, Jewbacca.

This should have been headlines.

Our prayers are with you.

Drudge has this buried way way way down on his page, I see nothing about it on hotair or cns news or the blaze (does anyone still go there?)

Except for those 2 sites can anyone recommend a GOOD news site with headlines that isnt bought and paid for like drudge?

I’ve been looking for the same after deleting Drudge and Breitbart.com (May the Real journalist RIP). I found this. Maybe it will help.
