PARIS — A teenager attacked a Jewish teacher with a machete in the southern French city of Marseille on Monday, and afterward told the police that he had carried out the attack in the name of God and the Islamic State, according to the Marseille prosecutor.

    8,000 French Jews moved to Israel last year and Israel is ready to accommodate even more.

      If the remaining ones have any sense, especially a sense of self-preservation, they will leave.

        My cousin is one of them, and fortunately for him he is only 29 years old. A born and raised lifelong Parisian, he has been increasingly scared since Charlie Hebdo and of course the Bataclan attack, and predicts that 2016 will be even worse in France in particular and Europe in general. He wants to leave the continent permanently, and I am doing everything to assist.

          Unfortunately it will get worse before it gets better.

            Frankly, my cousin isn’t too certain it will get better at all. I suppose if you define “worse” as civil war(s) scattered regionally throughout France and Europe, that is possible, but he definitely doesn’t want to stick around for that.

            Little tidbit: even after the Bataclan, there are no border controls at the France-Belgium border. He went to Luxembourg last weekend and didn’t see a single guard or police officer at the border. Nothing. Zero. Zip.

    So this has nothing to with islam, I imagine.
