Ilan Halimi's horrific Muslim murderers go on trial in France.
Ilan Halimi's Muslim torturers/murderers phoned the family on several occasions during the period Ilan was held hostage and made them listen to the recitation of verses from the Koran, while Ilan’s tortured screams could be heard in the background.
23 people participated in torturing Ilan. Another 20 were involved
indirectly. The custodian of the building gave them the key to an
apartment where they said they wanted to "keep someone."
Three weeks of unimaginable torture. Three weeks. So many clues. So
many guilty animals partaking in the continuing torture in their
"homemade concentration camp."
The screams must have been loud because the torture was especially atrocious:
the thugs cut bits off the flesh of the young man, they cut his fingers and
ears, they burned him with acid, and in the end poured flammable liquid on him
and set him on fire.
tortures. Horrible torturers. One of the torturers would go to work at a
TV station every day and come back and partake in the torture. The
girls who lured young men. They knew he had been kidnapped. They knew
Yosef (the leader of the Barbarians) was extremely violent. They knew
Ilan was still in his hands three weeks later. All they had to do was
make an anonymous phone call to the police. No one would have known. They did not do it. No neighbor thought to say to the police that something strange was going on in this building.
The police told the family not to say a word. The Jewish community
was not warned when prior attempts to kidnap Jewish men had failed. The
Jewish community was not warned before the successful attempt.
Even one member of the gang that dropped out of the gang because he was shocked by their violence did not call the police.
These neighborhoods are not ghettos. They are not sordid. Not squalid.
When Ilan was found, the head of the fire department who was called
to the scene, this man with decades of experience, almost fainted when
he saw him. The last thing Youssef Fofana (leader of the murdering
gang, the barbarians) did was to slit his throat twice and pour an
inflammable liquid on him and try to set it on fire. But this did not burn him to
death, because Ilan walked for perhaps one hour, trying still to find a
way to live.
A self-proclaimed Muslim barbarian shouted his contempt for his judges
yesterday at the start of his trial for the torture and murder of a young Jewish
Youssouf Fofana, 28, who led a loose-knit gang of youths from an immigrant
housing estate, swaggered into court and shouted “Allah will conquer” as the
court began hearing a case into a killing that horrified France and the world
Jewish community in 2006.
Mr Fofana and most of his 26 alleged accomplices have admitted their roles in
the kidnapping of Ilan Halimi, 23, an assistant in a Paris telephone shop, who
was held for ransom for 24 days in the suburb of Bagneux. Mr Fofana, whose
parents came to France from Ivory Coast, denies killing the victim, who was tied
up in a cellar and tortured with acid, cigarettes and knives. He died in an
ambulance after Mr Fofana dumped him by a railway line and allegedly set him
The crime symbolised the casual and violent anti-Semitic culture among the
young on the immigrant estates. It shocked France because many residents,
including parents of gang members, were alleged to have been aware that Mr
Halimi was being held. Some allegedly took turns in guarding the captive for a
few euros. Half the defendants, mainly teenagers at the time, face charges of
failing to render assistance or alert police.
