Tunis: Muslims Tried to Kidnap Jewish Child

Three would-be Muslim kidnappers failed in an attempted kidnapping of a 12-year-old Jewish child in the tiny community’s ancient quarter on the Tunisian island of Djerba on the eve of Sukkot, Israel’s NRG News reported Sunday.

The boy, who preferred not to give his name for fear of his life, testified that a bearded man and a friend entered the Jewish neighborhood, approached the child, and told him to get into a waiting taxi.
