It's almost beyond the scope of this blog to mention the atrocious events in France yesterday, but it would be remiss of me not to.
With France in a state of national mourning and one of the largest manhunts ever seen under way, the shootings at the Ozar Hatorah Jewish school in Toulouse have brought the country together in what the president has called "a national tragedy."
Terrible enough that French soldiers should be shot dead in the street, but the events of yesterday were horrific.
Evils like anti-semitism and racism have no place in society, and France's reaction of horror to what unfolded will hopefully ensure that elements that support these attitudes understand clearly that there is no place for them.
France's Jewish population has contributed massively to the country over the centuries, their place at the heart of France's culture assured.
