Two Teenage Muslim Girls Arrested In Plot To Suicide Bomb French Synagogue
The French Central Directorate of Homeland Intelligence (DCRI) has announced that two Muslim girls, aged 15 and 17, were arrested in the Tarbes and Venissieux neighborhoods a week ago after authorities uncovered a plot to carry out a suicide bombing inside the Great Synagogue of Lyon during the Jewish New Year's celebration, when the Synagogue would have been packed with worshipers. They were indicted on August 22nd for conspiracy to commit terrorism.
According to JSS News and Europe 1, a source from the DCRI revealed that the girls communicated via social media. “These girls were part of a network of young Islamists who were being monitored by security services.”
In a way, that's even scarier since it reveals that what France is dealing with are dedicated amateurs.
The Great Synagogue of Lyons is one of the landmarks of the largest Jewish community in Europe.It was built between 1863 and 1864, and was designated as a monument historique in 1984. The building was renovated just this year, and the planned attack on it would not only have resulted in a horrible loss of life but a major blow to the morale of France's Jewish community at a time when they already feel besieged by the much larger and increasingly violent Muslim community, mostly from North African that the French imported.French jihadists are even using FaceBook to hunt Jews down and target them for attack.
Both the Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF), France's main Jewish organization and the National Bureau of Vigilance Against Antisemitism (BNVCA), one of France’s leading anti-semitism watchdogs called for the French Interior Minister to upgrade security measures to foil further attacks, particularly during the upcoming High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot, which occur in September and October during the Hebrew month of Elul.
There have already been a number of attacks on Jewish synagogues, institutions, businesses and school of late, to the point that they're becoming 'mini-fortresses.'
One percent of France's Jewish population is expected to leave for Israel this year. If this situation continues, more will follow. To quote something I wrote some time ago, back in 2006:
I can't escape the conclusion that a great many Europeans will end up being just fine with this new version of the Final Solution..no death camps to try to stay downwind of this time, no `ingathering' or messy arrests to ignore...just a line of people requesting visas because they are unable to stay and live in peace anymore.
