According to a Monday report by a French Jewish anti-Semitism watchdog group, a Jewish man was murdered in a gruesome attack by his Muslim roommate, and politicians are dead silent over it.
In a report by the National Bureau of Vigilance against Antisemitism, 34-year-old Eyal Haddad was murdered on August 20. the incident occurred in Longperrier, just northeast of Paris. According to the report, the Muslim murderer originally told police that he committed the heinous act over 100 euros he was owed, but later admitted he did it because the victim was Jewish.
The suspect, identified as Mohamed Dridi, “smashed the skull of his victim with an axe, then he burned his face and even began to bury the body,” the BNVCA said. He then turned himself to the police, where he was arrested and placed in detention.
Reacting to the lack of concern of French authorities over the matter, several Jewish groups bashed politicians who chose to remain silent. Damien Rieu, a far-right French activist and member of Eric Zemmour’s party, was the only politician to mention the killing on Twitter. “Still no press article to inform us about the circumstances of the death of #EyalHaddad?” he questioned.
