Bangkok Chabad Calm with Increased Security


The Chabad House of the Thai capital, Bangkok exhibited calm, Friday, following the revelation of terrorists who intended to attack Jews in the country during the Passover holiday. Interviewed by Channel 2 Television, Rabbi Nehemia Wilhelm, who manages the facility, said, "We increased security before the holiday out of concern for attacks but we are continuing our routine and try to do the maximum concerning security."

Rabbi Wilhelm added, "There's no need for unecessary panic because we know there are always plans to attack us. Primarily the parents of tourists get tense but there's no need to be alarmed. Israelis must protect themselves and not be too conspicuous." A member of the Jewish community said a number of the visiting Israelis are not even aware of the story because they are out wandering the country.
