How disgusting can anti-semites get?
Anti-Semitic murder of elderly woman triggers calls for Paris protests
Two men have been jailed in the case, according to the official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. They were handed preliminary charges of robbery, damaging property, and murder with anti-Semitic motives, he said.
Francis Kalifat, president of the Jewish group CRIF, said Knoll was stabbed 11 times.
Knoll reportedly escaped a notorious World War II roundup of Paris Jews, in which police herded some 13,000 people — including more than 4,000 children — into a stadium and shipped them to the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi German-occupied Poland. Fewer than 100 survived.
Europe has a serious anti-semitism problem, and France is definitely not an exception. I hope they string these guys up, seriously. This is just sickening.
It's also a reminder that we need to be vigilant against anti-semitism. It tends to get overlooked and we cannot let that happen.
An annual national count of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim and anti-Christian acts — most of which involve threats — dipped in 2017 compared with the year before. However, anti-Semitic violence increased by 26 percent, and criminal damage to Jewish places of worship and burial by 22 percent.
I hope they do have a rally in her honor, but the French government itself needs to look at what it's doing to increase anti-semitism in the country.
