Rabbi Attacked in France: No, He Wasn't Drunk or Crazy

He was lucid, and screaming Allahu Akbar and none of the other "Frenchmen" around bothered to help. 

"The rabbi, still in shock a mere two days after the assault, in which his friend suffered from multiple stab wounds to the abdomen, told Actualité Juive that while he appeared to have been tipsy, “The perpetrator was not crazy.”

"The assailant knew exactly whom he was going after, the rabbi said. The location – outside of the Minhat Chalom synagogue on Shabbat morning – was not coincidental. 

“It’s because my son and I have beards and wear hats that we were attacked,” he said."

"No less disturbing to the rabbi was the reaction of witnesses to the bloody scene."

We were attacked next to a café,” he recounted.

Patrons were there, but none intervened."

I wonder if it was a croissant or shisha café.
