30,000 march in Paris after Holocaust survivor stabbed and burned in antisemitic murder 

Mireille Knoll, who escaped the mass deportation of Jews from France during World War II, was stabbed 11 times and then burned when her flat was set on fire in an antisemitic attack at the weekend.

Around 30,000 people, including community leaders and politicians, marched through Paris yesterday in honour of 85-year-old Mireille and in silent protest to antisemitism. President Macron, who attended Mirielle's funeral, said “I am deeply affected by the appalling crime committed against Mrs. Knoll. I reaffirm my resolute determination to fight against anti-Semitism.”

The attack happened on the same street where a 65-year-old Jewish lady, Sarah Halimi, was beaten and thrown out of her apartment window in an Islamist antisemitic attack last year.

What you've been saying about the antisemitic murder in Paris and reaction:
So horrendous to do this to anybody let alone an old lady who'd been through so much already. But many prayers all over the world are for her family now. Amen X - MEL
Any such atrocity would be heinous - but this shows the spiritual demonic nature behind such acts. So very sad - but God will still prevail. 🙏🏻 - DOROTHY
Good to see that anti semitism just won't be allowed to grow in the dark like mushrooms. These people shine the light against that filth. The Lord God bless you all. - ANNE
Why, oh why has nothing been learned from the past? This hate has to stop, I’m so disgusted, And upset by this...... - SUE
I see this is a top news item on the BBC and Sky in the UK. Not! - MIKE
Please to hear Macron's "absolute determination to fight against anti-Semitism." Pray he means what he says. - CHRISTINE

Major Hamas-led campaign begins at Gaza border THIS FRIDAY

Israel is preparing for a massive procession of tens of thousands of Palestinians towards its border with Gaza, possibly attempting to take it down and march into Israel.

Palestinians are being urged to move into tent cities around the border.

The “March of Return” is planned as just the first stage in a series of “return” protest activities that will take place over the next few months, including demonstrations and attempts to break the naval embargo on the Gaza Strip. These activities will reach their peak in the middle of May 2018 (Nakba Day) and will also continue in June (al-Quds day).

UN passes FIVE resolutions against Israel, but Britain IMPROVES its stand with Israel

The UNHRC on Friday passed five resolutions attacking Israel, but only two regarding Syria and one each on Iran and North Korea.

However, the UK voted against two of five resolutions on Israel raised at the 37th session of the Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva. Whilst we wanted to Britain to vote no in all resolutions, the outcome indicates a move away from total siding with the UNHRC in its bashing of Israel.
