An article on the barely-publicised defenestration of a Jewish woman in Paris by a Muslim charges that since the al-Durah affair, French opinion has denied to Jews the status of being victims.
The writer, Pierre Lurcat, says that the “intellectual elite” is prevented by prejudice from seeing Jews as victims, just as the Jews expelled from Arab lands cannot be perceived as victims.

Lucie Sarah Halimi, an Orthodox Jewish doctor aged 67, was hurled out of a window to her death by a Muslim neighbour, aged 27. Apparently, he had insulted and abused Lucie and her daughter Elisheva for years. The perpetrator has apparently got mental issues.
The Causeur article observes that Muslim antisemitism is ‘the new taboo of French political life’. It draws parallels between the Halimi case and the trial of the historian Georges Bensoussan for ‘incitement to racial hatred’. Bensoussan had merely pointed out that Arab and Muslim antisemitism was endemic.
Lurcat says that Halimi was killed twice: once by her neighbour and a second time by a media cover-up.
