Anti-Semitism, This Time in Its Islamist Variant, Plagues France Again. By QANTA A. AHMED
Excerpt: Too few Westerners appreciate that the political ideology is an imposter of the monotheistic religion that is Islam. Mireille Knoll, 85, a Holocaust survivor, was stabbed and then immolated in her apartment in Paris last month. The suspect, Yacine Mihoub, 28, released from prison last September, shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered Knoll, according to his accomplice. The following week, thousands gathered in Paris and marched in her honor. President Emmanuel Macron denounced the anti-Semitism behind the brutal murder, but the underlying Islamism went largely unremarked by the nation’s leaders. Islamist anti-Semitism courses through Europe’s Muslim migrant communities. No country has been affected by this frightening development more than France, which in 2015 alone saw the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the killings at a kosher supermarket a few days later, and then the Bataclan shooting. Less recognized is the steady onslaught of lethal anti-Semitism on Europe’s streets, claiming one Jewish life at a time. ... QANTA A. AHMED — Qanta. A. Ahmed is a British-American Muslim physician, the author of IN THE LAND OF INVISIBLE WOMEN, a member the Committee on Countering Contemporary Anti-Semitism through Testimony (Shoah Foundation, University of Southern California), and a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
