Armed Security Patrol Jewish Wedding in France

Photo: The Marais, Paris


Greg Dyett, an Australian journalist with SBS News, posted a photo to his twitter this Sunday, showing two armed men standing outside a Jewish wedding in Paris. “Police and security forces in France seem always at the ready such as outside this Jewish wedding in the Marais area,” he wrote.

A connection has been made between this added security and the attack at a Kosher Supermarket that took place in January, during which four Jewish individuals were killed. As such, it is imbued that these heavily armed men are there to prevent further violence.

Anxiety has been heightened for Jewish individuals in France, as attacks are on the rise.

According to the French Bureau National de Vigilance Contre l’Antisemitisme, anti-Semitic attacks are all too common in France. As reported by the Algemeiner, bouts of anti-Semitism occur three times a day, on average, in France.

Dyett’s photos do well to capture the unsettling atmosphere of the situation in Paris, especially from the perspective of one just passing by.
