A kosher supermarket in a French suburb was attacked with at least one explosive device on Wednesday, as two suspects dressed in black targeted shoppers inside the market, reportedly injuring 4 people.

According to reports from the French news agency Sipa, the two suspects placed a device inside the market and just before the explosion went off, they threw a rock through a store window and fled the scene.

The incident occurred in Sarcelles, located north of Paris, which is home to significant numbers of Jewish residents.

Moshe Cohen-Sabban, who represents the local Jewish community, says the market is used this time of year to “stock up” for Yom Kippur and although there is “much anti-Semitism” in France as a whole, the Jewish community in Sarcelles has few problems.

French media, Jewish leaders, and police officials have yet to establish a clear motive for the attack.

    “Clear motive” – not obvious? If they were to find smelly Kaki thrown at a Jew’s property, first of all they would run a lab test to determine if this were indeed Kaki or…Perhaps they believe these were price protesters???

  • “yet to establish a clear motive for the attack.”

    Jews of the world, wake up and act. The antidote to Judeophobia is to proclaim often. “ISRAEL IS GOD’S PROMISE TO THE GENERATIONS” “ISRAEL IS THE LIGHT UNTO THE NATIONS”. The next generation of us will do this, so let us start now, plz.

    It’s time that Jews put an end to the galut (exile, called also diaspora) before the galut puts an end to them.
    It’s not a choice, it an obligatory mitswa that all Jews pay for not observing, as taught by Rabbi Shlomo Issaschar Teichtal, ztuq”l, Hi”d in his masterpiece “Em HaBanim Semechà” (http://www.tsel.org/torah/emhabanim-eng/index.html) written in Budapest 1943 while hiding from the nazis.
    He is someone who, albeit too late, had understood and confessed his misunderstanding, mistake and ultimately sin: the repetition of the ONLY sin never forgiven to ‘Am Israel, the Sin of the Spies, something the Torah calls A SIN, and some rabbis WRONGLY rationalized calling it “providential” and other rubbish; it is the sin of “They despised the desirable land, they did not believe His Word” [Psalm 106:24]

    The Socialist government will run cover for the Muslims. They always have and always will because to them it’s better to burn a few Jews than it is to have to ignore the wholesale uprising of 2 million Muslims in France.
