Survivor of French anti-Semitic stabbing qualified for elite IDF brigade

 

Last week, Jonathan Weinberg, who was 13 when a group of youths attacked him for being Jewish, earned his purple beret as a Givati fighter in the IDF. “I realized that if Jews are brutalized for being Jews, France is no place for me.” he said.
