French police busted a 27-year-old Muslim man over the gruesome death of his neighbor, a 66-year-old Jewish woman, whose body was found outside of their Paris apartment building, according to the Gateway Pundit.
The watchdog National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism believes the death of Sarah Halimi was premeditated murder caused by racial hatred.
Sammy Ghozlan, a retired police commissioner and the watchdog’s president, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency Wednesday that Halimi’s relatives said that she had been previously subject to anti-Semitic harassment by the suspect’s relative.
The accused Muslim man, who is already known to the police because of his several offenses, had broken into Halimi’s apartment, stabbed her and then pushed her off the window of the top-floor apartment in Paris’ crime-ridden 11th district. He reportedly cried ‘‘Allahu Akbar’’ before he threw her to her death.
Violent crimes preceded by cries of ‘‘Allahu Akbar’’ (“Allah is Greater” in Arabic) have been a rising phenomenon in France.
