Ex-soldier guard for Jew pupils

548f9e00.jpgJewish schools across Britain are hiring elite former soldiers to protect pupils from Islamic extremists following Israel's invasion of Gaza.

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."
