A Paris suburb must remove a plaque honoring a convicted Palestinian terrorist, a French judge ruled.

Municipal authorities in Bezons were ordered to take down the plaque for Ihrima Majdi Al Rimawi, who was convicted in the 2001 assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi in Jerusalem.

The judge told the Communist Party-dominated Bezons Council on December 19 that it had one month to remove the plaque dedicated to Rimawi, who has been associated with several terrorist attacks and is serving a life sentence plus 80 years in an Israeli jail.

In response to a complaint filed by Sammy Ghozlan of the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism, the judge also invalidated the Bezons Council’s February 2013 decision to grant Rimawi honorary citizenship.

Rimawi’s murder of Ze’evi in October 2001 was carried out in the name of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the group that claimed responsibility for last month’s terror attack at a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem….

PFLP is a Communist organization.  I do know even know if the assassin was a Muslim: he could have been a Christian Palestinian.  No time to research it further.
