TRAGEDY: Four Gunned Down at Jewish School in France

March 19, 2012

A shooting attack today claimed the lives of Rabbi Jonathan Sandler, 30, his 3-year-old and 6-year-old sons Gabriel and Arieh and 8-year-old Miriam Monsonego, daughter of school headmaster Rabbi Yaacov Monsonego, in Toulouse, France. A 17-year-old has been seriously injured, Ynet reports.
"The gunman shot everything in front of him, children and adults," French Prosecutor Michel Valet said. "He chased the kids into the school."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that "it is too early to determine what the background of the murderous act was, but it is impossible to reject the possibility that this act was driven by violent and murderous anti-Semitism.
"I have yet to hear any condemnation of the heinous murder from the UN, what I heard is that the UN Human Rights Council hosted a Hamas representative, on this of all days," he said.

Paris has ordered to increase surveillance and protection of Jewish institutions across France. French anti-terrorism prosecutors announced that they will investigate the shooting.
