A Jewish  school in Paris was evacuated on Thursday — three years to the day after the brutal massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse, French news website JSS News reported. The evacuation follows disturbing instances of increased antisemitic violence throughout France and Europe.

Police searched the classrooms and common areas at the Ecole Alliance Gustave Leven in the 16th arrondissement of Paris using bomb-sniffing dogs. Though the report did not indicate whether the police found any explosives, sources did tell JSS News that it was a fairly serious threat.

One source told the website that the evacuation “was a source of intense stress, especially on that terrible day of remembrance of the massacre of the Jewish school in Toulouse.”

The evacuation at the French school occurred on the third anniversary of the horrific killings in the southern French city of Toulouse, where Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah opened fire in the Ozar Hatorah school, killing a teacher and three children.

According to reports, Merah claimed to be an “Islamic warrior” and said that he was taking revenge on behalf of Palestinian children. Merah died following a long stand-off and shoot-out with French authorities. Merah’s terror spree left seven dead in total.

Last week, numerous outlets revealed that the man and child featured in a chilling ISIS child terrorist video were possible relatives of Merah.

    I think Algemeiner should be careful when using information coming from “JSSnews.” This blog, written by one Jonathan Sellem, is known for publishing fake information such as the death of Bashar Al Assad, and for publishing stories attacking highly respected Jewish and diplomatic personalities in France and Israel.

    If Algemeiner wants a French source, I would respectfully suggest contacting i24 news, the Jaffa-based French-Israeli TV channel and website. They have a team of French-Israeli professional journalists who publish reliable information.

    It is known that the The Very Large Jewish School of Habad was the real target on the day that the Kosher Market was attacked and 4 killed.The real target has over 1000Jewish Pupils
    The Terrorists car was full of arms and amunition as was found abandoned next to the airport where it was left by the terrorists wife who flet to Syria via Turkey.
    The sad killing of the Women Policeman after a small accidentwas the reason for the change
    The terrorists will no doubt return and the French Security should be ready for them!!!

    The US and Israelis are being taunted by “Old Europe” the miserable french-papal-iranian alliance. But they are in no shape to throw down.

    Let us pray speedily for the day when the US and Israel dictate the terms of peace to the treacherous Amalekites, hamanites and Edomites and redraw the maps or europe and the middle east according to the will of The Lord.

  • Jews must Leave sooner than later.

    Why don’t they evacuate the Muslims from France?

    Maybe Obama doesn’t want the only democratic nation in the middle east to be “his” friend.
