    A Chabad Chassid was stabbed on Friday afternoon by a Muslim man in Strasbourg, France.

    Paramedics who were called to the scene treated the wounded man, who was reportedly stabbed in the stomach, then transferred him to the hospital in moderate condition.

    Police believe the stabbing was an anti-Semitic attack. Police have arrested the stabber, and brought him in for questioning.

    Reports indicate the Muslim screamed “Allahu Akhbar” when he committed the attack.

    French police indicate the knifeman has a history of psychiatric problems, though his identity has not been released.

    Strasbourg and the surrounding areas are home to around 15,000 Jews, roughly five percent of the population.

    The chief rabbi of Strasbourg, Rabbi Rene Gutman, told AFP the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.

    The rabbi claimed the suspect had previously attacked a member of the local Jewish community in 2010.

    Condemning the attack, he told AFP it “in no way reflects the prevailing climate in Strasbourg,” which has a large Jewish community.

    The attack comes as France reels from a string of jihadist attacks in the past year-and-a-half, beginning with the January 2015 killings in Paris at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the Jewish Hyper Cacher supermarket.

    Seven months ago, a 15-year-old supporter of the Islamic State group attacked a Jewish teacher in Marseille with a machete.

      If Israel gives away land that Hashem helped them win, in a miraculous way during the June 1967 SIX day war. This will put the lives of Jews all over the world in danger.

      On a positive note: Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems overwhelming. We need to remember what it was like to fight for Yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

      And with the Rebbe’s brochos & guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.
