Belgium: Jewish man attacked on way to synagogue, police deny racial motivation

A Jewish man was attacked while on his way to the synagogue Saturday morning.  The victim managed to find shelter in the synagogue and call the police.  The police say that the suspect, who was undressed, was high on drugs.  The police say that attack was not racially motivated.

Attakcs on Jews in the area are uncommon.  A year and a half ago a drunk driver drove into a group of Jews standing outsde the same synagogue.

The Israeli site Behadrei Hadarim quotes Shmuel Markovitch of the Antwerp city council saying that the attacker was Muslim.  Local police did not confirm or deny this.
