Whatever the seriousness was of the threat, the events that took place near a synagogue on Paris’s Rue de la Roquette July 13 have deeply worried France’s 600,000-strong Jewish community, Europe’s largest.Around 250-300 Jews were inside the synagogue, attending a solidarity rally and prayers for Israel’s beleaguered population, when two waves of French-Arab youths broke off from a major pro-Palestinian solidarity march taking place less than a mile away and headed for the building shouting anti-Semitic slogans.
