Murder of elderly woman in Paris probed as anti-Semitic

March 26, 2018

By: Associated Press

French authorities say the killing of an elderly Jewish woman in Paris is being investigated as an anti-Semitic murder. The woman, identified in French media as Mireille Knoll, was stabbed at least 11 times and her body was set on fire.

The Paris prosecutor's office said Monday two suspects have been put in custody. It said it is asking investigating judges to charge the pair with premeditated murder of a vulnerable person for anti-Semitic motives.

The office also asked for the suspects to be jailed pending trial.

Leading Jewish group CRIF said the 85-year-old woman was slain last week in Paris' eastern 11th district. The victim had reportedly escaped a round-up of Jews in Paris during World War II. The group says a neighbor who had previously made anti-Semitic statements was one of the people under arrest. They didn't confirm reports that the man was Muslim.

CRIF asked for "utmost transparency in the ongoing investigation so that the reasons for this barbaric crime are known to everyone as soon as possible."

The group plans a rally in her memory and support of her family on Wednesday.

The body was found the same day a gunmen killed several people in an attack on a supermarket in southern France.

++++++++

Just another one of those daily "isolated" anti-Semitic attacks in Europe.

Please remove head from sand; I've been through this before.

Paris Taxi Driver Tried To Kill Jewish Passenger

The original of this article (with video) is here:

http://www.maariv.co.il/news/world/Article-628435

It's in Hebrew, so I will more-or-less summarize.

An Jewish tourist visiting his brother in Paris has claimed that a taxi driver in the French capital threatened to slit his throat after realizing that he was a Jewish.

The Jewish man, Ronen Edri, took a taxi to visit his brother in Paris. The radio was very loud, so Edri asked the driver to turn down the radio so he could give him the address. The driver responded "Who are you? What do you think you are? You do not live here! you have no rights here! You are not even the owner of this vehicle!

He said the driver then cursed at him and yelled, I will show you what Muslims do to Jews.

The driver made a phone call in French. Edri recorded the side of the conversation he could hear. The driver said, this son of a whore, Im going to cut his throat in my car.

The taxi driver would not stop and pulled out a knife. Edri then jumped out of the car and broke his ankle.
