Belgium: 'In Europe, Jews are a specific target'

Barbara is a Belgian Jew who moved to Israel.  Her three children went to a Jewish school in Brussels, but she feared they'd be attacked.  She says that if Israel didn't exist, she wouldn't sleep at night.

And though they're not 100% safe in Israel either, she says that at least in Israel, her family isn't a specific target.  In Europe, not only is she a target for terrorists, but she even has to argue the point.

Also, in Israel people are aware that their country is a target, and therefore take measures to ensure safety.  (RTL felt it necessary to point out that some of those measures towards the Palestinians are seen as extreme - but, at least they say those measures have good reason).
