#JeSuisJuif: Netanyahu to Visit France

The weekend news in France has not calmed down much since the end of the hostage situations and the deaths of three terrorists. There was a bomb threat on Saturday that ended up closing three theaters in Paris.

Then the news broke that Hayat Boumeddiene, common law wife of terrorist Amedy Coulibaly, who died when police stormed the kosher supermarket where he had murdered four people and was holding others hostage, may not have been at the supermarket at all. In fact, she may not even be in France.

People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that Boumeddiene left France before this week’s carnage which began with the massacre of 12 people in a command-style attack at the office of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine Wednesday.

She crossed into Syria from Turkey, the people told the paper.

The Associated Press reported Saturday that a Turkish intelligence official said authorities believe Boumeddiene came through Turkey days before and also believe she may have crossed into Syria.

The official said a woman by the same name of the common law wife of Amedy Coulibaly flew to Istanbul on Jan. 2.

The official said the woman resembled a widely distributed photo of the woman, Hayat Boumeddiene. The official said she landed at Sabiha Gokcen, which is Istanbul’s secondary airport, stayed two nights in Istanbul before traveling to Sanliurfa near the border with Syria and “then disappeared.”

Police can find no evidence that Boumeddiene was at the kosher supermarket. French authorities still want her apprehended, and quickly.

The 26-year-old could hold the key to the ongoing terror investigation, as police admit they could be dealing with a larger extremist cell and al Qaeda threaten more attacks.

In the meantime, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his heartfelt condolences to the French President Francois Hollande.

And then he decided to visit France himself.

Leadership.  He has it.
Leadership. He has it.
Netanyahu is also wanting to open the doors of Israel to all French Jews who wish to leave France.

Netanyahu called on lawmakers to alter the existing immigration laws to make it easier for Jews to permanently move to Israel.

“This week, a special team of ministers will convene to advance steps to increase immigration from France and other countries in Europe that are suffering from terrible anti-Semitism,” Netanyahu said.

“All Jews who want to immigrate to Israel will be welcomed here warmly and with open arms. We will help you in your absorption here in our state that is also your state.”

Anti-Semitism has been on the rise in France, and has certainly not been helped by the growing radical Muslim population. Prime Minister Netanyahu is making quite a statement by being there for Sunday’s tribute march for the victims. President Obama, however, is not going. He visited the French Embassy in Washington D.C. and signed the condolence book there, and made a few comments before a speech given in Tennessee announcing his plans for free community college. France got a couple of minutes of Obama’s speech time. Lucky them.

President Obama has no official plans for today, so he’ll be golfing. However, the real leader of the free world will be going to the march in Paris and saying “Je Suis Juif.”

    Who cares what Obozo does or not does here-he is about as important on the world stage as the president of Botswana at this point thanks to his combination of incompetence and clueless meddling. France is probably relieved that he won’t be coming-his mere presence would probably incite more problems. Now Bibi is a statesman on the other hand-we should be so lucky to have a leader like him in the US.

    As for the Turks-I wouldn’t trust anything they say when it comes to terrorism. Their leader has an affinity for it as Turkey’s role in Syria shows.

      The fun bit is that Holder was actually in Paris and didn’t attend. 0bama evidently talked about football this weekend, instead.
