Jewish teacher who claimed he was attacked by ISIS jihadists is arrested by French police who allege he LIED about the assault
- Tzion Saadon, 45, claimed he was attacked by ISIS jihadists in November
- He said he had been beaten up by three men claiming to represent ISIS
- But police today said he had been arrested for allegedly making up story
- In January, another teacher was sent for psychiatric tests after admitting he lied about an attack in his classroom
The teacher, who worked at the Yavne Jewish school in the southern city, claimed two knives were used to slash him in the arms, legs and stomach.
However, there were no independent witnesses, and forensic examinations later suggested Saadoun had caused the knifes lashes himself.
After a three month investigation, police have now decided to charge him with lying to police and disrupting an inquiry.
In December, another pro-Israel teacher was taken into custody after saying he was attacked by an 'ISIS aggressor'.
Stephane Aroule, 45, is also said to have tried to spread hatred against Muslims by fabricating the stabbing.
He sparked a full-scale terrorist alert when he said a man wearing a balaclava and brandishing a box cutter and scissors had entered the Jean-Perrin nursery school in the Paris suburb of Aubervilliers. The area has a large Muslim population, many of whom have complained of stigmatisation in the wake of the terrorist attacks last November.
Police took Aroule to hospital, but he only had self-inflicted scratches on his body and was quickly released.
Following questioning, he confessed to making the story up to try and spread mistrust and suspicion of Muslims.
The conclusion is inevitable. Rather than a rise in anti semitism in Europe what we see here is a growing manifestation of kosher psychosis.
