A Chabad Shliach who is a prominent advocate of Jewish self-defense in Europe received a death threat on Monday, as European governments scramble to protect Jewish sites in the wake of a series of terrorist incidents that have rocked communities across the continent.
From the Jerusalem Post:
Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the President of the Brussels-based European Jewish Association, rose to prominence in the media with his call for communal officials to be granted gun permits following the shooting of four Jews in a kosher grocery store in Paris last month. Following Saturday’s shooting of a guard outside of a Danish synagogue, Margolin demanded that European leaders “secure all Jewish institutions 24/7.”
“Menachem Margolin will be a dead man if he does not stop. We will stick a bullet in his head,” a post on his Facebook wall threatened on Monday, the ultra-orthodox Kikar HaShabbat website reported.
