Terror in Paris | Wed 25 Nov 2015

The last horrible terrorist attack in Paris was not aimed against Jewish institutions but we can learn from it.
Oded Raz, former Deputy Head of the Security Section at the Israeli Security Agency (ISA) commented on that issue while being interviewd by different TV channels.

One thing that deals with the basics of security is the fact that the terrorist who tried to enter the “Stade De France” was tracked by the security guard (a Muslim too) at the entrance, was not allowed to enter and decided to explode himself outside, thus saving lives of many.
