As the cry “Allahu Akhbar” — the symptomatic sound of mental illness — rings out over Europe, it is the Jew who is the preferred target of all these inexplicably homicidal lunatics.

Observant Jew attacked with a knife in Strasbourg
An observant Jew was attacked with a knife Friday morning [August 19] in Strasbourg. Police have arrested the perpetrator.
The incident occurred on Friday morning. A religious Jew in his sixties was injured after being attacked by a man with a knife who shouted “Allahu Akhbar”. Several witnesses confirmed to Alsace’s Dernieres Nouvelles that the attacker gave that cry.
“He is shocked. It is a weak word. He is aware that it is a miracle. He was wounded in the abdominal region.”
Chief Rabbi of Strasbourg René Gutman told AFP that the victim was attacked just outside his home, which located in the Jewish Quarter, half a kilometer from the Great Synagogue of Strasbourg.
After the assault, the victim — who was wearing a yarmulke — took refuge in a bar next door and received assistance from the patrons within. “He is shocked. It is a weak word. He is aware that it is a miracle. He was wounded in the abdominal region. It missed vital organs by centimeters,” said JDD Mendel Samama, a Strasbourg rabbi who saw the victim at the hospital in between examinations. “He is an extraordinarily kind man. We hope he will recover.”
