Knife Wielding Woman Attacks Rabbi in Vienna, Yells to ‘Slaughter’ Jews

A knife-wielding woman screaming ‘slaughter all Jews’ attacked a rabbi and ripped off his kippah in Vienna. 

The attack occurred Thursday afternoon when the woman, described as about 50 years old and wearing a grey coat, suddenly approached the rabbi and pulled the knife from her handbag.

She kicked the rabbi in the leg, knocked his hat from his head, then tore off his kippah and yelled an antiemitic insult before fleeing, police in the Austrian capital said today.
