'French anti-Semitism spike threatens society'
by Rory Mulholland
French youths radicalised by Islamists are a major threat to France's Jews, who are already subjected to a surge in anti-Semitism, says the country's new Chief Rabbi. But he insists that the 500,000-strong community can trust the state to do all it can to protect them.
France's new Chief Rabbi has warned that since a deadly attack on a Jewish school two years ago -- which he says has sparked the current exodus of Jews -- there has been a rising tide of anti-Semitism that is a danger to all of French society.
But Haim Korsia insisted that the Jewish community in France -- which at over half a million is the largest in western Europe -- can trust in the institutions of the French state to protect it.
