Security guards at a Kiev synagogue thwarted a stabbing attempt Friday evening. A 60-year-old man arrived at the synagogue and asked to meet with the rabbi. When they were alone, the man pulled out a knife and, declaring that "all Jews should be killed," attempted to stab the rabbi. Security guards pulled off the assailant and handed him over to local police.
