French to Charge Two with Anti-Semitic Murder

A horrific story from Paris:

The burnt and stabbed body of a Holocaust survivor was found in her Paris apartment, in what a watchdog on anti-Semitism said was a case reminiscent of an alleged anti-Semitic hate crime.

The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA, wrote in a statement Sunday that the suspected murder of the 85-year-old woman, identified by BNVCA and in the French media only as Mireille K., “is reminiscent of the crime committed against Sarah Halimi,” a 66-year-old Jewish teacher and physician, whom prosecutors say was murdered by her Muslim neighbor in April partly in connection with her Jewish identity.

Anti-Semitism in France and throughout Europe is growing – and, in some cases, it is lethal. Please pray for safety for all European Jews during this perilous time, and for comfort for the family of the Holocaust survivor who was murdered in this despicable attack.
