Year after attack, France’s Jews learn to live under armed guard

Paris (AFP) — Ever since a jihadist attack on a kosher store left four people dead a year ago, France’s Jews have grown used to soldiers patrolling their neighborhoods and schools.

While a comfort to some, the fact that the large Jewish community is forced to live under armed guard only heightens the sense of being a target.

    When soldiers instead of the police patrol the streets, then we are in a state-of-war.

      The upside is that it opens up a world of possible alternative places to live which are no worse.

    The government behave as if they’re dealing with Roderick Spode and the brown shorts…when they’re actually dealing with worse than Moselyites.

    Dust off the riot act and get it on.

    Also roving groups of vigilantes….mugs thugs Methodists triple A long ball hitters…Frog hells angels football hooligans…chick sex testers with attitudes…white power florists…….pig shit spewing water cannons…..the works……provide unlimited gin and Dexedrine …stun grenades de rigeur….

    Put THEM on the defensive……any arson types or car BBQs get the lead pill …..arm the fire department and ambulance service….

    two months of blowback and these cowards would be lining up to join the Knights Hospitaler……….St Iaagoooooooooo!

    The only thing worse than living under armed guard is living without it — when you reside in an Islamified country.

    Why there are still Jews in Europe is a mystery to me.
