Ilani Halimi Trial Begins Today: Muslim Gang Tortured Jewish Guy to Death

By Debbie Schlussel
Today, the trial of the Muslim killers of Ilan Halimi began. Unfortunately, the trial is closed because two of the TWENTY-SEVEN barbarian Muslims (redundant) who murdered him are minors.
Three years ago, I told you the story of how Halimi, of blessed memory, was kidnapped by a Muslim gang of 27 in France, after luring him with an attractive woman. The Muslims, headed by Youssouf Fofana, held Halimi captive for 24 days, while they tortured him and called his parents who heard his screams in the background, while his torturers shouted anti-Semitic slurs. For 24 days, the Muslims burned Ilan Halimi with cigarettes and an iron, beat him, cut off his fingers, and otherwise brutally tortured him. His “crime”: He was a Jew.


Ilan Halimi, Zichrono LiVrachah [Blessed Be His Memory]
Throughout, Muslim neighbors in the building heard his screams and cries from torture. And they did nothing. In the end, the Muslims dumped his mostly lifeless, cut-up, burned body (80% of it was covered in burns) on railroad tracks, and he died shortly thereafter. He was only 23.

From the coverage of today’s first day of trial:

The leader of the “barbarians,” Youssouf Fofana, smirked at Halimi’s relatives and shouted “Allahu akbar!” (“God is Greatest!” in Arabic) [DS: Um, it actually means “allah is the greater” or “the greatest,” meaning greater than your or my G-d] at them as he entered the courtroom.
Bearded and wearing a white tracksuit, Fofana gave his identity during formal questioning by the judge as “Arabs African revolt barbarian salafist army.”
The 28-year-old said he was born on February 13, 2006, in Sainte-Genevieve-des-Bois, the date and place of Halimi’s death.

During his time in detention, Fofana, a young French man of Ivorian origin, has bombarded the magistrates investigating the case with letters full of anti-Semitic insults. . . .
After the murder, Fofana fled to Ivory Coast. From there he made death threats by telephone to Halimi’s father and girlfriend. He was extradited to France on March 4, 2006.

From previous coverage of the Halimi murder:

The items found in the torture chamber included extremist Islamic literature and leaflets of a pro-Palestinian charity blacklisted by the United States and Israel. The charity, the Comite de Bienfaisance et de Soutien aux Palestiniens (CBSP), a Hamas-affiliated fund, is still active in France despite the exposure of its members and financial support tying it directly to terrorist activities in the Palestinian Authority.
What happened to Ilan is not the first attempt of this kind. The gang tried to pull off similar crimes before with four of the six previous victims being Jewish. Similar stories are only now surfacing.
French daily newspaper Le Parisien reported that the gang’s last victim was a fifty-year-old Jewish man, who had driven home a girl who attempted to seduce his twenty-year-old son.

As I noted back in 2006, Ilan Halimi looks like he could be an Arab. That’s because his family of Sephardic Jews left Arab countries, so that they could live in peace and without harassment and persecution from Muslims. But they could not escape Islamic anti-Semitism and barbarism. The problem long ago exported itself from greater Islamic barbaria to France, where it has long been at home.
This is France, but it could easily happen here in the United States. If you think otherwise, you’re a fool. If you watch the second video, below, the Jewish leader in the community is still burying his head in the sand, as do the American Jewish community establishment’s self-appointed liberal leaders. He talks about how the Jews and Muslims all get along and still get along. That’s a big lie. There is a reason for the mass Jewish emigration from France to Israel: violent Muslim attacks on France’s Jews.
Also, note that French television (Muslim Arab reporter Karim Hakiki–he’s not biased, right?) keeps saying the neighbors were unaware or didn’t hear. A complete and obvious lie. They heard, but they did nothing, because the inhumane Islamic culture accepts wanton torture and murder, especially of non-Muslims, particularly Jews. Watch how this Arab Muslim a-hole “reporter,” Hakiki excuses this gang and claims they were not anti-Semitic. Uh-huh. Liar. That French television holds a debate whether or not this was anti-Semitism, tells you everything you need to know about France. It’s lost forever. More like Al-France de Mohammed.

The Nazis never left France. They just have a different religion. And an invasion at Omaha Beach of Normandy won’t stop them this time. It’s too late.

Did anyone count all the times that Muslims (or Islam) was mentioned, other than by the “naive” (and i am being kind) Rabbi around the 7:30 mark of the second video? Well, I counted a grand total of ZERO times. This despite the fact that the idiot analyst mentioned Iraq/the Near East being an excuse for what happened.
I also think it is worth noting the same idiot analyst did not think Ilan Halimi’s murder and torture was due to anti semitism despite the fact that he admitted a previous victim had “dirty Jew” scribbled on his forehead.

Time for France to reinstate Madame Guillotine.
Rest in peace, Ilani.

Ilan Halimi wasn’t murdered because he was an Israeli or a Zionist. He was murdered because he was a Jew and this is the Hamas program for every Jew in the world.
They are the new Nazis.

And the scary part is that millions of Americans have simply lost the will to fight this Neanderthal mentality. I share your bleak outlook.

What a sad case-I will never understand the mindset that can just torture someone for no reason-that kind of hate is a mystery to me

The future is indeed bleak for us. Most who are able to see what is coming, can’t convince those who are too freaking ignorant. If ever there were a time to break out the Guillotine, it is right NOW!

Stuff like this could become widespread here as well, especially with the spread of sheeple in this country. Fortunately we still have quite a few of the warrior mindset. Not enough in my humble opinion but still a few.
I remember a neighbor down the street when I was a kid. Her dad was supposed to be some biker. Apparently she had been dating a 16 yr old kid when she was like 13. I remember her boyfriend came to school with horrible facial injuries and limped with both legs injured as well. He claimed he just got jumped by some guys. A year later I spoke to a guy that knew of the injuries. He had been messing with my neighbor and her dad got a couple of friends together in an old van…
Some guys have their point which is not negotiable.

I said it once, and I’ll say it again. The first mistake Europeans made, was to let the first Muslim in their countries. The next mistake, was to let a Muslim member of the opposite sex in to breed. In a nutshell, no country can be invaded by deadly vipers, and expect to not get bitten, and eventually die!

It amazes me how stupid the french people are.. I mean, it is RIGHT in their face but they don’t see it ? Is it blatant stupidity ? Or farcical political correctness ? Either way it is DEATH. When you invite the vampire into your house he means to kill you. Maybe not today but a vampire is a vampire.

Halimi is a Tunisian Jew. And for your information Jews were in Tunis at least 2000 years before Mouhammed and Islam. Tunis is set apart from all other Islamic countries by their tolerance towards the Jews. After all Tunisian Jews contributed in many ways to mention just a few: Alan Boublil (les miserabales, miss seigon), Ronald Dyan (a famous classical guitarist, Paul Sebag (a historian), Albert Memmi (a writer) and many others. Unfortunately, tunis is becoming less tolerant towards jews even if only 1500 of them live there presently.

Islam is also the religion of hypocrisy? Anyone remember how the Muslim world demanded we immediately bury Uday and Qusay Hussein in accordance with Islamic laws? Seems like anytime Muslims torture or murder someone, they throw out their bodies in the street like garbage. Maybe we should start doing that with Muslim extremists that we kill…let the vultures and cockroaches eat at their bodies. They deserve to decompose in disgrace.

{sigh}. If only this was an unusual occurance…
it’s just another reason I prefer humans to muslims.

Thanks, Debbie, for keeping up with this story. I viewed the Hakiki report and noticed a few things. As you said, there was no mention of Muslims. On the contrary, it was the parish priesr being interviewed and giving his mea culpas. To the uninitiated it looked like Christians were somehow resposible. Then there was the Frenchwoman married to the African man who lived “just opposite” the apartment where the outrage occurred. Yes, they were just opposite, but the building is so far away it’s understandable they heard no screams. WHAT ABOUT THE NEIGHBORS IN THE BUILDING WHERE THE OUTRAGE ACTUALLY OCCURRED? No interviews of them! HOW ABOUT INTERVIEWS OF MUSLIM CLERICS IN THE AREA? Again,nothing! How about the concierge who let them use the apartment for the torture? No mention. You are right. The report is a total smokescreen. The interviewer asks Hakiki if it was antisemitism. Everyone is mystified. Just some unremarkable kids. Neighbors knew nothing. And Hakiki says neighbors (apparently the invisible MUSLIM neighbors, are annoyed with all the questions. ANNOYED!). The problem is as much with the authorities and the media as it is with the Muslims. This is intolerable to watch, like a slow motion car crash. And the liberal Jewish establishment has only nice things to say.

What the hell is this???? A new version of ‘Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction’! I am French and I live in France and the story related here is not the real truth! Yes, the poor Ilan was murdered but the gang is called the ‘Barbarian gang’ and not the ‘Muslim gang’. The murderers are a bunch of young men and women from all origins and religions (Christians, Muslims, unbelievers, coloured and white people). The leader of the gang is Youssouf Fofana who refers more to the black color of his skin than the religion he was born in. Have a look at Wikipedia and you will learn that most members are white native christian French. So why blame only the muslims? Ilan was kidnapped in the hope of a ransom: Jews are believed to be rich… It was a question of money, it could have been the son of a rich politician or business man whatever the race or the religion. By perverting the truth, the danger is to spread more hate between the Jews and the Muslims. Ilan Halimi’s murder has nothing to do with the israeli-palestinian conflict… In france, such a point of view could be prosecuted!
