David Fremd, a 54-year-old local businessman, was attacked in the western Uruguayan city of Paysandu, on the border with neighboring Argentina. One of his three sons was also injured in the attack, but his wounds are reportedly not life-threatening.

Fremd was a local representative of the Uruguayan Jewish umbrella group. His family suspects that the attack was religiously motivated, according to a report by local news outlet Subraydo.

His suspected assailant, a 35-year-old man with a criminal record, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing him, the local El Pais newspaper said. Police have arrested the suspect.

      I am still attempting to figure out where the Jews fit IN.

      The JEWS appears to be EXCLUSIVE from our New Love affair with the Planet.
