    The head of Marseille's Israelite Consistory is urging Jewish men to forego wearing skullcaps (kippot) after a particularly vicious anti-Semitic attack on a school teacher, saying the measure was needed to protect Jewish lives.

    It really don't believe that we should live in a world where people are not free to express their beliefs in a non-confrontational manner.. Particularly in France, the world of 'liberty, equality and fraternity.' Stories like this make me wonder how far away modern France is from the enlightenment principals on which it's whole social order was founded.

    Unacceptable!
    We need to start sending people to prison who don't understand Freedom of expression! Better yet send them to Syria or Saudi arabia to be with like minded people

    Not surprised, antisemitic attacks are on the rise in lots of places in Europe such as Paris, Marseilles, Malmo etc.

    What is this utter cowardice? Is France not a secular, democratic, liberal state committed to peace? Then out with oppressive laws that restrict freedom and promote tyranny.

    Unacceptable. But not surprised, seeing how weak Valls and Hollande are.
