Jewish teacher stabbed in Marseille by ISIS sympathizer

(JTA) – A Jewish teacher in the French city of Marseille was stabbed by a man wearing an Islamic State T-shirt who shouted anti-Semitic profanities at him with two other men. The victim, a history teacher at a Chabad- Lubavitch school, suffered injuries that were not considered life threatening, the French news agency AFP reported, citing an account of the Wednesday, Nov. 18 incident.

The attackers fled and are the subject of a manhunt.

The teacher, a bearded, observant Jew, was wearing a kippah, Michele Teboul, the president of the local branch of the CRIF umbrella of French Jews, told JTA. A young man approached the teacher on a moped and showed him a picture of Mohammed Merah, the Islamist who killed a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse in 2012. The picture was on the motorcyclist’s cellular phone, Teboul said.
