Itongadol.- A French judge has ordered the communist-dominated municipal authorities in the city of Bezons, to the north-west of Paris, to remove a plaque honoring the Palestinian terrorist who assassinated Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi in Jerusalem in October 2001.
French Judge Orders Communist Council to Remove Plaque Honoring Palestinian Terrorist
Following a complaint filed by Sammy Ghozlan of the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism (BNCVA,) the judge informed the Bezons Council that its original decision to confer honorary citizenship on the terrorist, Ihrima Majdi Al Rimawi, was invalidated. The council now has to remove the plaque dedicated to Al Rimawi by January 19, one month from the date of the judgement.
After the honor was bestowed on Al Rimawi, Dr. Moshe Kantor, of the European Jewish Congress stated that it was “inconceivable for an elected official to be so ignorant as to call a cold-blooded murderer a victim.” Kantor added that “this type of glorification of murder is sending a very ominous message to the next Merah” – a reference to Muhammed Merah, the French Islamist who carried out a bloody terrorist atrocity at the Ozar HaTorah school in Toulouse on March 19, 2012, during which a rabbi and three small children were murdered.
