The attack on a German synagogue earlier this week is raising questions about whether German Jews should rebuild Jewish life there. “The message is clear – – Jews don’t belong to German society,” Frankfurt Jewish leader Salomon Korn was quoted as saying. Meanwhile, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder visited the Dusseldorf synagogue that was firebombed earlier this week and vowed to use “all available means” to protect Germany’s estimated 90,000 Jews.
