In yet another attempted attack on the Jewish community in France, police have found a "booby trapped" car parked outside a Marseille Synagogue.
The French media reported Saturday that a car containing gas canisters was found outside a synagogue in the southern port city of Marseille.
According to the reports, the suspicious vehicle was spotted at around 11 a.m. Saturday at the Bar Yohaye synagogue and community center, at a time when Jewish worshipers were likely to be attending Shabbat services. Two gas canisters were reportedly found inside the vehicle. A cordon has been erected in the area.
This comes just a few days after the car packed with gas canisters and diesel fuel was found outside Note Dame Cathedral.
It is noteworthy that Muslims in France and elsewhere often divide their resources when attacking targets with part of their assets hitting Jewish targets while the main force attacks a cultural event or main location.
This was the case with the Charlie Hebdo attack, the Bataclan and in Bombay when the Chabad house was attacked at the far end of town from where the main attacks at the Train station and hotel Taj Mahal took place.
