A French anti-terrorism court has for the first time interrogated the brother of Mohamed Merah, the Toulouse gunman who killed seven people last March including three Jewish children and a rabbi. Since then, Merah’s brother Abdelkader has been in jail, while authorities conducted an investigation into his role in the murders. Judges wanted to know if the elder Merah provided logistical support to his younger brother, including whether he helped steal a Yamaha T-Max scooter used as the getaway vehicle in the killings. The three separate attacks by Algerian-born Merah shocked France and raised uncomfortable questions about race relations in the country and possible failures among its intelligence agencies. They have also fuelled fears of an increase in attacks by radical Islamic militants. The interrogation of Merah’s brother comes shortly after Jacque Beres, the co-founder of French international aid group Medecins San Frontieres, reported after a trip to Syria that many extremists who have joined the fight against the regime of Bashar al-Assad say they consider Merah an inspiration.

The twice-a-year Jacob’s Ladder Festival at the Sea of Galilee has toes tapping to a wide variety of musical styles. Known as Israel’s friendliest musical event, the Jacob’s Ladder Festival is a folk music jamboree that takes place twice a year on the banks of the Sea of Galilee. It started as a Woodstock-like musical get-together for English-speaking immigrants in 1978 but today there’s a lot more Hebrew being spoken in the crowds. The music runs the gamut from folk and blues to Celtic, bluegrass, klezmer, world music and rock, and participants and musicians come from all over the world. Organizers say their three-day music extravaganza is so well-known in Israel and abroad that they are bogged down with requests from groups to perform. “We’ve been to a lot of festivals and this is probably the best festival spirit that you can get,” says John Abrams of the high-energy bluegrass Canadian sensation, the Abrams Brothers. “Everybody dancing and singing —it’s a real collection of enthusiasm and that’s why we like coming back.”
