France’s Macron Wants Change In Law After Top Court Lets Off Jewish Woman’s Killer Because He Was On Weed
Murderer “yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ and recited a number of verses in the Koran before throwing her over the balcony.”
French President Emmanuel Macron has called for a change in the country’s law after the top court ruled not to prosecute the killer of a Jewish woman because he was on cannabis at the time of the crime, according to local media.
President Emmanuel Macron urged a change in French law after a man who murdered a Jewish woman in 2017 avoided a trial on the grounds he acted in delirium due to drug-taking, in an interview published Monday.
Jewish groups have reacted with outrage to the decision by France’s highest court on Wednesday that Kobili Traore was not criminally responsible for the murder in 2017 of Sarah Halimi.
Halimi, a 65-year-old Orthodox Jewish woman, died in 2017 after being pushed out of the window of her Paris flat by neighbour Traore, 27, who shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great” in Arabic).
Traore, a heavy pot smoker, has been in psychiatric care since Halimi’s death and he remains there after the ruling.
The court said he committed the killing after succumbing to a “delirious fit” and was thus not responsible for his actions.
“Deciding to take narcotics and then ‘going mad’ should, not in my view, remove your criminal responsibility,” Macron told Le Figaro in an interview.
“I would like Justice Minister (Eric Dupond-Moretti) to present a change in the law as soon as possible”, he added.

France's highest court ruled that her killer cannot stand trial due to his "delirious state” from smoking marijuana.
This ruling is a heavy blow to 🇫🇷Jews & all committed to fighting antisemitismhttps://t.co/Ro3IztT7BD
Macron’s remarks come after repeated pleas from the Jewish leaders. “Macron’s comments followed outrage in the French Jewish community over the court’s ruling and statements by Jewish leaders,” as they demand better legal protection, the Jerusalem Post reported.
While the French court was preoccupied with the killer’s drug use, it failed to take his jihadist ideology or his antisemitic motives into account.
“Traoré yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ and recited a number of verses in the Koran before throwing her over the balcony of Belleville apartment, located in the east of Paris,” Israeli TV channel i24News noted, citing a French police report.
“If the killer’s mental state at the time of the crime exacerbated his antisemitism — as all reports seem to indicate — why refuse to see that there was antisemitism indeed prior to the use of drugs?” French philanthropist Francis Kalifat asked in an op-ed in the weekly Algemeiner on Monday.
The murder of Sarah Halimi is not an isolated incident. With the surge in Islamist terror attacks in France in recent years, French Jews have increasingly come into the cross-hairs of the jihadis. In 2012, an Algerian migrant with affiliation to Al Qaeda gunned down three children and a teacher at a Jewish school in Toulouse. A Jewish Supermarket was targeted by ISIS terrorists in January 2015, killing four shoppers.
In March 2018, 85-year-old Mireille Knoll was stabbed to death in her Parisian apartment. One of the killers apparently yelled “Allahu Akbar” as they stabbed the Jewish Holocaust survivor eleven times before setting her on fire, the London Times reported.

Don’t some Muslims take drugs in order to work up the courage to murder as they practice Islam?
Does that mean I can get off if I go to France and run over somebody because I am drunk?
Only if the one you run over is Jewish.
I have seen plenty of drunks become violent, that is not the case for weed. The worst I have seen from weed is all the munchies being consumed.
So if this guy was violent while on weed, he must have been a stone cold killer when he was not stoned.
It’s a smoke screen (pardon the humor). He’s a Muzzi, he killed a Jew. They don’t want to face that so they create some BS about how “drugs caused it.”
The are cases of people having psychotic breaks due to the use of marijuana. There is some discussion of whether this happens to people who already have a mild psychosis or if it can happen to those without pre-existing disease. Pretty rare certainly but seems to be coming more frequent as people start taking larger doses of the drug, due to either higher active ingredient content or from oral dosing.
Muslims don’t usually need drugs to justify killing an infidel, but it is true that they found a lot of dope on the terrorists killed in Iraq (the book Generation Kill covered this). I believe also in Afghanistan, as well. But I doubt it in this case.
He had the munchies. He ate Twinkies. This caused him to kill. Same excuse as Dan White.
Whites//Christians/ and unfortunately even people of the Jewish faith are in a hurry to destroy themselves and our culture by supporting these left winged nut jobs and their policy’s
BLM, Muslims will never be satisfied till we are in the dustbins of history
Aside from the total idiocy and insanity of even contemplating that one should not be responsible for ones actions after having willfully taken a drug …. “delerium” from weed???
But, I expect this sort of stuff from France. This is the country that loves to host murderers – so that they can’t be held liable for their crimes from some mean, old country with a sense of justice – and lunatics who are waiting to return to their homeland, take over, and wage endless war against the West …
The French are already into their fifth republic … you’d think they would get the message and just give up at some point. That’s their forte, after all.
Of course the “delirium” defense is so much contemptible nonsense. Weed never caused delirium in anyone. If anything, it calms a person down and makes them feel content. The French court allowed a Jew-hating Muslim to get away with murder because they’d rather not address the hate and pathologies that are intrinsic to the supremacist, totalitarian and belligerent ideology of “Submission.”
No, they came up with this ridiculous theory of “weed delirium” because they are scared to rule or do anything that might upset the moslems in France. Because if you upset the wrong moslems you could very easily find you’ve lost your head. Literally.
““Deciding to take narcotics and then ‘going mad’ should, not in my view, remove your criminal responsibility,” Macron told Le Figaro in an interview.”
Weird. Going all george floyd to ‘remove your criminal responsibility’ is a global scourge.
Macron knows if he lets this stand its only a matter of time before somebody smokes weed and starts killing politicians.
This is so despicable. Feckless, morally bankrupt dhimmitude is infecting Europe and the U.S. Jew-haters are welcomed into the ranks of the vile Dhimmi-crat Party and are celebrated, instead of being shunned and ostracized. See the ugly, Jew-hating bigots and Muslim supremacists, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Keith “Hakim” Ellison.
Let’s not forget the vile Obama’s callous and flippant response to the murder of French Jews at a kosher market, either. That incident is referenced in the post.
Vile Obama dismissed the incident as an allegedly “random” attack on a bunch of “folks” at a “deli.” The idiot’s spokes-lackeys had to walk the comment back, afterwards, it displayed such manifest dishonesty and disregard for a blatantly anti-Semitic attack. Such unbelievable callousness, of the type that he would never had shown, had the victims been Muslims.
Preach “Reefer Madness,” eat the unintended consequences.
Apparently marijuana not only makes you crazy enough to kill people, it makes you crazy enough to shout Koran verses while you do it.
I had heard that the original “Assassins” would indulge in cannabis to remove whatever inhibitions they had to commit planned murders.
my understanding as well
I read a story many years ago were society drafted leaders based on their qualifications, and then executed them at the end of their term.
Diversity (i.e. color judgment) breeds adversity. And, once again, it is the Jew in the liberal orgy that is the canary in the progressive hierarchy. That said, emigration reform to mitigate [catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout.
Even the idiot Macron can see how bad this is for him politically
If France’s “top court” did this, I’d hate to see the rulings of their lower courts.
In other European nonsense, Wirecard, the German bank that had a market cap larger than Deutsche Bank when journalists discovered it was a fraud. Instead of investigating, German regulators sued the journalists.
I remember how muslins avoid the consequences of crimes in Germany because they were bored and drunk.
