French police are investigating the murder of a Jewish woman believed to have been thrown from a window by a Muslim terrorist.
66-year-old Halimi was attacked by the terrorist as she slept in her bed. He stabbed her and pushed her from her third-story apartment to her death while shouting “Allahu Akbar.”
Halimi is to be laid to rest today, Thursday, at 11:30 at the Har Hamenuhot cemetery in Jerusalem. Her family asked that the public come and pay final respects.
The Muslim terrorist, 27, was arrested by the police. He is the victim’s neighbor and familiar to French authorities.
Neighbors reportedly testified that they had heard the Arab shouting that he wanted to kill Halimi just before the murder.
During the police investigation, the terrorist asserted that the Koran had commanded him to murder her.
He was sent for a psychiatric evaluation to rule out the possibility of a condition that could have impelled him to commit the murder.
Halimi’s family says it was a terror attack and blames police for trying to silence the murder for political reasons related to elections in France.
