The Killer of Ilan Halimi: “I am Fofana, Youssouf, a young Muslim who has flaws and who has made mistakes…”

 Youssouf Fofana, leader of a gang that murdered Ilan Halimi, posted anti-Semitic videos on YouTube

The mastermind, Youssouf Fofana, who called himself the “Brain of the Barbarians,” is serving a life sentence for the murder of Ilan Halimi, (with aggravating circumstances of anti-Semitism). The ringleader and his “Gang of Barbarians” were found guilty in diverse degrees of luring, kidnapping, and torturing Ilan Halimi, a young Jewish man unspeakably tortured and killed because ….. he was  a Jew.

One teenage  member admitted having put out a cigarette on Halimi’s face “because he didn’t like Jews.” In the video taken from his cell he is spreading several diatribes against the Jews and praises  Al-Qaeda.

“I am Fofana, Youssouf, a young Muslim who has flaws and who has made mistakes,” says the man on the videos posted on YouTube. The man insists he is a “war trophy” taken by New York zionists, le daily L’Est-Eclair reveals.

Unspeakable cruelty:

Ilan Halimi,  was lured into a trap set up by Fofana and his accomplices to obtain  a ransom when he was approached by a female gang member in a mobile phone shop in Paris.  

The 23-year-old man was tortured for three weeks in Bagneux, a Paris suburb, and found dying on February 13 2006. He died during his transfer to hospital.

France: Muslim ringleader of gang who tortured and murdered Jew sentenced to life in prison

Predictably, this story does not call attention to the role of Islamic anti-semitism in Fofana’s acts. The words “Islam” and “Muslim” are not mentioned despite Fofana’s own words quoted below, and the fact that the torturers chanted Qur’anic verses, and Fofana shouted “Allahu akbar!” in court. “Gang leader gets life in anti-Semitic murder case,” from France24, July 10, via JW:

Youssouf Fofana’s violent actions exposed anti-semitic tensions in the immigrant suburbs of France

A self-styled “barbarian” from Africa was sentenced to a minimum 22 years in prison last night for the kidnapping and murder of a young Parisian Jewish man.

Youssouf Fofana, 28, from the Ivory Coast, was convicted as the ringleader of a gang of youths from a housing estate in Bagneux, west of Paris, who helped him to kidnap and torture Ilan Halimi, a 23-year-old assistant in a Paris mobile telephone shop, in 2006.

The case exposed anti-semitic tension in the immigrant suburbs and shocked France. Fofana, who called himself the “king of the barbarians”, recruited youngsters from his neighbourhood so that he could hold Mr Halimi for ransom.

Twenty-four accomplices received sentences ranging from six months suspended to 18 years. Fofana’s two main accomplices, Samir Aït Abdelmalek, 30, and Jean-Christophe Soumbou, 23, were sentenced to 18 and 15 years.

The teenage girl, now aged 21, who lured Mr Halimi to his death by visiting his shop and inviting him on a date, was sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment.

Mr Halimi was found dying by a railway line, naked and bearing the marks of severe torture after 10 days as a captive in a basement on the housing estate.Fofana voiced his contempt for the court throughout the 10-week trial, which was held in camera because of the underage defendants.

The family of Mr Halimi voiced indignation at what they said were the light sentences passed against the accomplices who took turns to guard the young man during his captivity.

“Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans…” (Qur’an 5:82)

“Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” — Sahih Muslim 6985

The leader of the “barbarians,” Youssouf Fofana, smirked at Halimi’s relatives and shouted “Allahu akbar!” (“God is Greatest!” in Arabic) at them as he entered the courtroom.

Bearded and wearing a white tracksuit, Fofana gave his identity during formal questioning by the judge as “Arabs African revolt barbarian salafist army.”

The 28-year-old said he was born on February 13, 2006, in Sainte-Genevieve-des-Bois, the date and place of Halimi’s death.

During his time in detention, Fofana, a young French man of Ivorian origin, has bombarded the magistrates investigating the case with letters full of anti-Semitic insults….
