With all the horror and sadness Friday's attacks by Jihadists in Paris brought about, the French nation needed to pull itself together and take away the lessons of the murder wrought by terrorists belonging to ISIS, said Meyer Habib, a Jewish member of the French parliament.
"This was France's September 11,” he told Arutz Sheva. “Nothing will ever be the same. We had the terror attacks in Toulouse, at the Hyper Cacher, and now this.”
While those two previous attacks - the murder of four people in 2012 at the the Ozar Hatorah Jewish day school in Toulouse, and the massacre last January at the Hyper Cacher supermarket in Paris - were aimed at Jews, meaning that the average French citizen may have not appreciated the danger to them from Islamic terror, they were all paying attention now.
