French parliament building locked down after death threats to Jewish MP
He received a letter that read “Fat Zionist pig” and “You are not French.”
By Lahav Harkov, Jerusalem PostAugust 27, 2018:
French MP Meyer Habib received an envelope with white powder in it on Monday, leading a wing of the French National Assembly to be shut down.
“Fat Zionist pig,” the letter began, “you are not French. You do not belong in the Assembly. You are only a f*cking Israeli terrorist with blood on your hands.”
Security evacuated the B wing of the French National Assembly for over two-and-a-half hours, and chemical experts examined the substance sent in the envelope to ensure there was no danger.
Habib said that “it is sad and disconcerting that we have reached a situation in which a member of the French parliament receives death threats because he is Jewish and a friend of Israel. Beyond the personal matter, I am very concerned for the French Republic, and I think action and a response are needed at the highest levels.”
The MP has long faced threats to his life and, unlike most in his position, has bodyguards provided by the French authorities.
Habib, a French-Israeli and a longtime friend of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, represents French expats in the Mediterranean countries, including Italy, Turkey, the Holy See, Cyprus and more – as well as Israel, which has more French citizens than all the other countries combined.
