Anti-Semitic Attack in Brussels left three fatal victims

An attack today in Brussels left three people dead outside the Jewish Museum and another person critically wounded.

Belgian Interior Minister Joelle Milquet said that "it is likely that this is an anti-Semitic attack," with a search under way for the perpetrators. If the Interior Minister is proved right, this is yet another frightening reminder of the growing danger of anti-Semitism in the heart of Europe, amidst an increasing number of assaults on Jews, including the murder of four Jews, three of whom were children, by a French Islamist in Toulouse, France, in March 2012, and the expected success of openly anti-Semitic parties in this weekend’s European Parliament elections. We mourn with the families of those who lost their loved ones in today's attack.
