Europe's Jews on alert after attacks

Summary: 

Mr Myers, from Finchley in north London, is an Orthodox Jew who sports a full beard and a skullcap. He was attacked by a man using a six-inch blade. His assailant forced open the doors of the bus before walking away and boarding another bus. Last night Mr Myers was in a stable condition at Homerton hospital. The attack shocked Stamford Hill, where a 17,000-strong Jewish community has long peacefully coexisted with large Muslim and Asian communities. But last week five men were arrested on suspicion of distributing racist literature after leaflets calling for a jihad against Jews were distributed.
