Israel's true war is against anti-Semitism and attacks against Jewish communities worldwide, Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky said at a memorial ceremony on Wednesday for those Jews killed in anti-Semitic acts this past year.

The perpetrators of anti-Semitic attacks see an enemy in any and every Jew, whether he be a soldier, an Ashkelon resident, a child in a Jewish school or a teacher in Toulouse, France, Sharansky said, noting the recent shooting spree by an French Islamist, which targeted a Jewish day school and French Muslim soldiers.

Members of the bereaved Sandler family, which lost Rabbi Yonathan Sandler along with his two sons in the tragic Toulouse shooting, attended the ceremony at the Jewish Agency headquarters in Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported.

At least 200 people were killed in terrorism and anti-Semitic acts this past year, the Jewish Agency reported according to Israel Radio.
