Halimi murderers sentenced

A French court has given lengthy prison sentences to members of the gang that kidnapped, tortured and then killed French Jew Ilan Halimi. French authorities had originally refused to classify these acts as part of an antisemitic hate crime but were eventually forced to do so, based on the horrific evidence.

As Jihad Watch points out, French media reporting on the trial ignored or downplayed obvious Islamist statements by the perpetrators. Let's hope the French public is smart enough to figure out for itself what actually happened.
