Paris - Police in Paris arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with the death of his neighbor, a Jewish woman whose lifeless body was found outside their apartment building.

Sarah Halimi, 66, died Monday night. Police have not said whether they have a theory as to what led to her death or whether she was pushed from her window on Vaucouleurs Street in the crime-ridden 11th district of the French capital, according to a report Wednesday by the Actualite Juive weekly.


The National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism watchdog, however, believes it may have been premeditated murder possibly aggravated by racial hatred, the watchdog’s president, Sammy Ghozlan, told JTA on Wednesday.

Ghozlan, a retired police commissioner, said relatives of Halimi said that she had previously experienced anti-Semitic harassment by a relative of the man under arrest.

“This tragedy may have been the result of a random violent crime by a thug, or maybe there was a background of racial hatred here, or hateful ideology — at this point it’s not known yet,” Ghozlan said.

Halimi’s family wants to have her buried in Jerusalem. The body will undergo an autopsy.

After a search on this story, I find it of interest that it is the secular news sources that have the courage to point fingers. Ynet states:

> Neighbors say they heard the Arab man, who lived on the floor below a French Haredi woman, quarreling with her and screaming he wanted to kill her before she fell; suspect was known to the police.

And some blogger asks if the victim here Sarah (Lucy) Halimi is any relation to Ilan Halimi.
