Rising Fear Among Jews in France

Hosted by

Four Jews killed in a Kosher grocery store in Paris on Friday were buried today in Israel. The grocery store murders were the last in a series of attacks by Islamic extremists in France last week that started at Charlie Hebdo magazine. And the episode has stoked the fears of French Jews already alarmed by other recent anti-Semitic incidents. Last year, 7,000 French Jews fled to Israel, more than double the number that left in 2013. We get an update on the scene in Paris today and why Jewish people in France are questioning their own safety.
