As a child Mireille Knoll was born into a devastated Europe where only a handful of Jews had survived the Nazi pogrom that saw more than 9 million people murdered, including some 6 million of Knoll’s fellow Jews.
85 years later, Knoll is sad proof that anti-semitism still survives in France.
Just over two weeks ago, on Friday, March 23, a week before Passover, at the age of 85, Mrs. Knoll was raped, tortured and murdered in her apartment in Trèbes, a small town in Southwestern France, by a young Muslim man she had known since he was 7 years old who shouted “Allahu akbar” during his anti-Jewish bloodlust rampage.
The disabled grandmother was stabbed 11 times and her body was burned, according to law enforcement, by two men, one of whom, Yacine Mihoub, the primary suspect, was previously jailed for six months for sexually assaulting the daughter of a woman who helped look after the elderly Mrs. Knoll.
The heinous anti-Semitic crime has blown the lid off what has become a pattern of such attacks in France in the last five years in which some 250 murders have been committed by Muslims…
“Today, France is the only country in the Western world where Jews are murdered simply for being Jews,” writes Millière. “French Jews live in constant insecurity. The men who murder them evidently do not hesitate to break into homes and attack elderly women; they seem to know they can threaten their future victims without fear of arrest. More often than not, the police do not even record the complaints of Jews who go to the police station, but simply note in the daybook that a Jew claiming threats came and went.”
There are many parts of Europe today where non-Muslims simply cannot walk, and yet the leftwing governments of these nations do nothing to fix this problem.
In parts of the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and Sweden non-Muslims put their lives at risk when they wander in to these Muslim enclaves.
However, the story is worse for Jews who don’t have to go into Muslim neighborhoods like Molenbeek, and Rinkeby to face violence. No, for Jews in Europe today, the violence comes looking for them.
