Antisemitic murder France is trying to sweep under the table

Antisemitic murder France

A Jewish woman was hurled from her apartment window to her death in April. Why are the French authorities reluctant to address the murder as a hate crime?

Before he threw Sarah Halimi to her death from a window of her third-story apartment in Paris, 27-year-old Kobili Traore called his Jewish neighbor “Satan” and cried out for Allah.

These and other facts about the April 4 incident that shocked French Jewry are known from testimonies and a recording made by a neighbor, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism watchdog.
