Suspect surrounded by French police in Toulouse, France

  From David Schneier in Paris: Early today in Toulouse, France a house was surrounded where the police believed the murderer of French Jewish children and a teacher/rabbi was hiding. A shootout followed and two French police were wounded. The man inside says he has been trained by al Qaeda and he wants to avenge the deaths of Palestinian children. The French police say they want to take the suspect alive. Interestingly,a bomb exploded this morning outside of the Indonesian embassy in Paris so terror activities seem to be on the rise here.

  Many have said here it seems so hard to believe that the intentional murder of Jews could happen in Europe in the 21st century. But they  said the same thing about the 20th century in  the 1930's. Anti-Semitism is a deadly virus that needs little to surface in such a horrible way. It has been cultivated for 2,000 years and yet we are surprised when it rears its ugly head. Toulouse is proof of the dangerous situation facing Europe especially in France which has the 3rd largest Jewish population in the world and Europe's largest Muslim population. Shalom from Paris. David Schneier
