Why an Elderly Jewish Woman was Murdered
Mireille Knoll seems to have come from a novel, or a theater piece. Saved from the Holocaust, murdered at age 85 in what French police (who are very good indeed) are calling an anti-Semitic crime, honored in a huge march, eulogized by the President of France, her life seems crafted by a dramatist. As if Destiny saved her from the Nazis only to deliver her to the latest generation of Jew-haters.
As the Passover Haggadah reminds us, in every generation the Jew-haters reemerge and try to destroy us. Again.
