July – Paris, France:
Mid-July in Paris, 10,000-20,000 pro-Palestinian demonstrators gathered, shouting “Death to the Jews,” “Hitler was right,” “We will burn you,” “Jihad, Global Antisemitism in 2014 Jihad, Jihad” and other vile epithets. Not too far from the demonstrators, about 200 Jewish people had gathered inside a synagogue for a special service to remember the three Israeli victims of the kidnappings/ murders, which took place in June. Suddenly, the angry mob decided to throw café chairs (some of them lit on fire) at the building and continued to scream “Death to the Jews.” By God’s grace and with some help from French police, a pogrom was averted.
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
