The chief rabbi of Brussels was attacked by five Arab men. The Simon Wiesenthal Center protested Wednesday’s attack on Rabbi Albert Guigui to Belgium’s ambassador to the United States. Rabbi Marvin Hier, the center’s dean and founder, called the incident “an outrage against the Jewish community.” The five men reportedly called Guigui a “dirty Jew” in Arabic and kicked him in the face.
