France: Israeli student brutally attacked by 2 Muslims for speaking Hebrew
An Israeli student was brutally attacked by two Muslims at the Paris metro for speaking Hebrew on the phone.
The 31-year-old Israeli student boarded the metro at the Château d’Eau station, while two Muslims who heard his conversation began shouting, cursing and threatening him.
One of them attacked him until the victim lost consciousness.
A passerby called an ambulance and he was transferred to the hospital.
The terrorists fled the scene of the attack.
Meyer Habib, a member of the French National Assembly wrote on Facebook:
“For the past few hours, I have been in constant contact with Yogev B., the young Israeli victim of an antisemitic attack, clearly motivated by the hate of Israel alone,” Member of the French National Assembly Meyer Habib wrote on Facebook.
“While he was sending a WhatsApp voice message in Hebrew to his father, the student, currently on a university exchange program at HEC [Paris], was brutally beaten up – to the point of almost losing consciousness – by two individuals of African origin, right in the middle of a jam-packed metro train at the Château d’Eau station at 6:55 a.m.
“He was taken in a state of shock and bloodied to Lariboisière Hospital, and needed several stitches to his face, his nose was broken and his face was covered with bruises.”
