The “white march”, a gathering of between 1000-2000 people, was organized on 9 April 2017 by the Representative Council of the Jewish Institutions of France (Crif) to demand that the actual facts be revealed to the public. Declared criminally irresponsible, the murderer of Sarah Halimi will not be tried.
The peaceful rally was brutally stopped by the French police after some participants displaying Israel flags started singing the Israel national anthem after having sung the French anthem.
Declared criminally irresponsible, the murderer of Sarah Halimi will not be tried.

The Sarah Halimi case concerns the murder of a Jewish woman aged 65 in Paris on 4 April 2017 by Kobili Traoré, a native of Mali who shouted “shut your mouth”, “Allahu Akbar”, and “I killed the Shaitan” during the murder. The suspect claimed insanity and was hospitalized.
Dr Sarah Attal-Halimi, a 65-year-old Jewish woman, mother of three children, and retired physician, was beaten and thrown out of her apartment window. It is uncertain if she was killed before the fall or if death occurred as a result of the fall. This occurred at her residence, a 3rd-floor apartment in the Belleville district of Paris on April 4, 2017.

Justice has declared Kobili Traoré, then under the influence of cannabis, irresponsible for the murder of Sarah Halimi.
The long awaited trial by the civil parties will not take place. On Thursday, December 19, the instruction chamber ruled. Kobili Traoré, indicted for the anti-Semitic homicide of his neighbor, Sarah Halimi, retired from 65 years of Jewish faith, beaten then defenestrated with the cry of “Allahu Akbar” at her Parisian home in April 2017, should not to be judged at the assizes.
The Paris Court of Appeal declared that the young man’s discernment – 27 years old at the time and under the influence of illicit substances – was abolished at the time of the facts and that he is therefore criminally irresponsible. The civil parties have five days to decide whether they can appeal to the Court of Cassation.
“The issue here was neither the fight against this scourge which is anti-Semitism nor the desirable criminal policy against cannabis, but only the question of the discernment of Kobili Traore at the material time. However, it was clearly abolished,” said the suspect’s lawyer, Mr. Thomas Bidnic, who said he was “satisfied” and “relieved. ”
Speaking to the press, Mr. Francis Szpiner, lawyer for the three children of the victim, denounced the outcome as “an outrageous decision”.
“A man whose experts said that he had had a delusional puff as a result of a deliberate intake of drugs was therefore granted impunity,” he added. “We have just created in our country a Sarah Halimi jurisprudence, that is to say that any person who will suffer from a delirious drug addiction because he will have taken an illicit substance that is dangerous for health will be exempt from criminal responsibility .”
This inadmissible and incomprehensible decision shows the dilapidated state of French “justice”, incapable of punishing the criminals.
Laws and justice are the foundation of any decent society, in fact for every decent life.
France has lost this moral foundation. This is a trial the government of France doesn’t want to have. To have the trial would be to admit there is a problem of Islamic antisemitism.
