UK: Former Soldiers Guarding Jewish Schools

(London, England) In the wake of the Gaza skirmish, Jewish schools throughout Britain have hired former elite soldiers to guard against Islamic extremists.
Classrooms are being swept for bombs and visitors searched for weapons after Hamas said Jewish children are legitimate targets.

A staff member at North West London Jewish Day School said the premises now resembles a military barracks. He added: "Many of the security staff served in armies in specialist units."

Phaivish Pink, head at Manchester Jewish Grammar School, said: "Like most other schools we've taken steps to ensure pupils, staff and visitors are safe."
Although I haven't seen any reports, it's logical to assume that Islamic schools have hired additional security to guard against Jewish extremists -- uh, or maybe not.
