A rabbi was stabbed Friday night in a Paris synagogue by an unknown assailant who fled, Israel Radio reported.

According to the radio the assailant stabbed Rabbi Gabriel Farhi in the stomach, shouting "Allah Wakbar" before running away.

Farhi, who was lightly wounded, was treated at a hospital, before being released.

Farhi told the radio that this was not the first time he or his family had been threatened and that very morning he had received a threat.

Paris police are investigating the incident.

From reuters:

PARIS (Reuters) - A rabbi was stabbed in the stomach at a Paris synagogue on Friday, although his condition was not life-threatening, police said.

Rabbi Gabriel Farhi, who runs the Jewish Liberal Movement of France (MJLF) office in eastern Paris, was attacked at around 5 p.m. local time, said Edith Lenczner, spokeswoman for France's CRIF umbrella group of Jewish organizations.

She said no further information was available.

The MJLF is affiliated to the World Union for Progressive Judaism. Among its aims are adapting Jewish religious rituals to modern life and preserving the memory of the genocide of six million Jews during World War II.

According to the organizations's Web site (www.mjlf.col.fr), Farhi was born in 1968. He has recently stepped up efforts to establish closer ties between Judaism and other religions, in particular Islam, it said.

A U.S.-based Jewish human rights group last year issued an advisory to its members urging "extreme caution" when traveling to France after a spate of attacks on Jewish schools, cemeteries and synagogues.

The Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center in July downgraded its advisory to "caution," praising the center-right French government elected in June for boosting police monitoring of anti-Semitic activity.

Well, well, I wonder what the assailant's religious affiliation is?

Once upon a time, the scorpion decided to take a long trip, and in the course found himself in face of a large river. Since he did not know how to swim, he decided to stay there thinking about a solution. The toad was passing by and greeted the scorpion who did not hesitate to explain his problem. The toad proposed to take sir scorpion to the other end of the river with the stipulation that he promises not to sting his back and that they remain good friends. The scorpion agreed, and the toad then put him on his back swimming towards the bank. As they were reaching the other side, sir scorpion stung the toad and then jumped out to high grounds, saying: "Your slippery back dirtied my legs".

Lesson: "Choose your friends carefully".

Yet the liberals continue to support the Islamanazis. I just don't get it. A vast majority of feminists and Jewish people are liberals and they would be the first to suffer terrible repercussions in a muslim society. Nevertheless, they are staunchly against the WOT. I just don't get it.

What do the Europeans expect? Sixty four years after Kristallnacht, anti-semitism is tolerated in Europe. Can't the Europeans understand that an excess of anything good becomes a nemesis, even tolerance? This was known in ancient Greece at the dawn of European civilization. Some things cannot be tolerated. Have these people learned anything from history?

Not only is it tolerated, but you have the younger Germans complaining that they do not want to hear about the Holocaust, because "it was so long ago" and "we were not part of that".

Most people don't realize that it's easier to emigrate from the Middle East if one is a Muslim vs a Christian. Apparently the West doesn't want Christians to abandon the Middle East, so they make it more difficult for them to emigrate. Of course, at the same time they don't lift a finger to help the Christians there. So the Christians end up with a horrible life with no help, and Muslims are the ones allowed to emigrate to Europe and the US and carry with them the seed of the West's destruction.

I have one question...why isn't the assailant DEAD?

Any Jews with the Rabbi should have immiediately pursued and murdered the attacker. Until Jews in France start defending themselves and killing Arabs for any attack on a synogogue or person, instead of the usual running whining to authorities who would love to see the Holocaust II, I have have zero sympathy.

Obviously a follower of that right-wing Christian demagogue Jacques Le Pen! < /sarcasm >

Just wait until we start dismantling Iraq: Aprés Saddam, le deluge. The local Musselmen are going to freak out once pictures of Heroic Arab Liberation Fighters being blown to pieces, eviscerated, and charcoal-broiled are broadcast, and they're going to go hunting for revenge -- with M. et M. Les Partouts being their number one target. If I lived anywhere near a big French city, I'd be buying, borrowing or stealing a gunmaintenant.

Liberal, in the european sense, is conservative in US political terms.

In europe liberals are defined as conservatives in the US. It is liberalism, in the european definition sense, who strive for freedom over equality, free enterprise and the like.

Too bad your government (Canada) doesn't trust it's people with arms, although I realise that many Canadians are still armed. An armed Jew that found him/herself the object of Islamafascist attention could certainly help hasten their meeting with the Dark Lord.

"Yet the liberals continue to support the Islamanazis"

I think the reason is probably that since most Muslims are not of European descent and not "white," that the Left can't help thinking of Muslims as a "minority," which means they must be used in the Left's continuing effort to undermine Western culture.

This gets really ironic when Jewish leaders instincts to be "liberal" lead them to instinctively wish to support those who hate Jews.

I hate to say it but when I was in France a little over two years ago...I attended an awards service at a private Catholic boy's school. Although not a student at this particular private school, our friend's grandson was receiving an academic award at a ceremony just being held on their premises. So we wanted to see this event and I had wanted to see this particular school for a long time. It is quite a historical site.

In the boys/mens room...near the dining hall...my husband said that there were swastikas carved in to the wood on the window sills and by the doorways. He was shocked and said that it did not look as if there had been any attempt to cover the up the carvings. They looked freshly done...paint still hanging on the edges.

I went up to that door way...just at the entrance....and, by golly ,there they were... on the door frame...I saw several carved just as "big and bold as brass"!

This particular school is a boarding school and boys go there from all over the former French "empire". AHHMMMMMmmm.

That being said...there are many 3rd world boys there...parents have money though. This is NOT an inexpensive school. They have beautiful white swans in their pond and a lovely rose garden....and junior neo-nazis in their midst. OH, SO CHARMING!

look at the word "assassin" in the random house, for example: the word comes from the arabic for the user hashish--hashshasinin.

two meanings include: 1. the member of a secret moslem sect that assassinates christians, and 2. a murderer who carries out a plot to kill a public official; the more recent version.

so, apparently, moslems got high on hashish and plotted and killed christians.

I believe you're trying to agitate me, aren't you?
Here I sit, fully satisfied with life - having spent the past two weeks with my children and grandchildren that visited for a long Christmas and New Years --- lots of good food, good drink, good company -- and YOU'RE trying to draw me into a fight with Islamanazis..

Well, twice this past week - took young grandson to the range....teaching him large bore rifle and pistol shooting.. He's a natural.....it must be genetic..

It must also be genetic that the French allow just anyone to bring them grief... Soon, I believe these pathetic, cowardly Jihadists that attack unarmed civilians are going to get their overworked asses kicked - big time.

The larger the number Islaminazis killed, the more I will enjoy myself.

Semper Fi

Sounds like a great Christmas/New Years and Congratulations on the grandson being a natural shot. I thought you might enjoy the idea of new slogans for Islamokazes. :-)

I got a new perspective from an Army vet (WW2 and Korea) about France and the French: They were whiny, ungrateful German loving ingrates. Things do not change much in 60 years.
