City’s Jewish community stands firm after ‘jihad at home’ terror plot

“I’ve had eggs thrown at me, been punched in the face and suffered verbal abuse for being a Jew,” said Rabbi Arnold Saunders.
“But we were all taken aback when we heard about a terrorist bomb plot.”
The rabbi, of the Higher Crumpsall and Higher Broughton Synagogue, is trying to reassure his shocked community after the conviction of a radicalised Muslim couple for planning bomb attacks on Jewish areas.
“You can’t run your life thinking you might be a victim of a terror attack, and if you did that would mean the terrorists had won,” he said.
