Following the major terror attacks in Paris on Friday, Jewish students in the city are afraid to go to school and some families are opting to keep their children at home, Israeli Channel 2 news reported on Monday.

Reporting from Paris, a Channel 2 correspondent pointed out several armed soldiers protecting a Jewish school.

The correspondent said he was filming from a distance so as not to reveal any visual details that could be used to identify the school’s location.

The beefed-up security at Jewish sites across Paris, and indeed across France, is an ongoing effort launched after the hostage crisis at the HyperCacher kosher supermarket in Paris in January that resulted in four dead victims.

“France is a country in mourning right now, in shock. Fear is rampant right now, and this is has an influence on children as well,” said the Channel 2 reporter.

    There is poor planning in establishing a growing caliphate. The millions of largely Muslim refugees could have softened most of Europe and North America so that in a generation or two, the grand plan could be achieved in making the entire world Muslim.

    It appears that those countries that denied the Jews a refuge in the Hitler’s era had a sensitive conscience and all too ready to do with any humanity.

    There is a Muslim principle that once a country is occupied by Muslims, it remains theirs forever. Spain and Palestine were conquered in the seventh century. That may explain the fixation on Israel. The poor Palestinians who are being sacrificed.

    Many French were killed but Jews were the targets.

    It is not just France. Every time I get an email invite from the UK ZF, it states “a North London venue”. We’re too scare to even publicise where events are taking place
