The home of the Muslim mother of a victim of the jihadist killer Mohammed Merah from Toulouse was sprayed with anti-Semitic threats.
Latifa Ibn Ziaten, whose son, Imad, was murdered in 2012, discovered the graffiti Monday, she wrote on Twitter. One graffiti, written in misspelled French, read: “Jew, soon dead.” Another said: “Your time is coming soon, dirty Jew.” Ibn Ziaten, who has traveled to Israel in the framework of her activism against anti-Semitism and hatred, spoke at a convention of the CRIF umbrella group of French Jews of her indignation when she hears young Muslims speak of Merah as a martyr. A third read: “Long live Merah.”
Latifa Ibn Ziaten has campaigned with French Jews against anti-Semitism.
Merah murdered her son, a soldier in the French army, days before he killed three children and a rabbi at a Jewish school in Toulouse.
“I can’t believe my ears and I tell myself this is simply not possible in the France I know,” she said in 2014.
