More moderate Muslims, the ones the West can count on, exhibiting their own special humanity.
From French: The Qiran.com site used a picture of Ilan Halimi - a French Jew tortured and killed by Muslims in 2006 - in its Google AdSense advertising. A British surfer discovered the picture on news sites, most notably France Soir. Qiran.com acknowledges the error and said the ad was immediately removed. The site sends it most sincere apologies to Ilan Halimi's family. According to Qiran.com, the photo was used by one of the members, and the company uses member photos in it advertisements.

It was taken down. But what were they thinking? Why was Ilan's image used in the first place? The details of his torture and murder are beyond comprehension. Islamic jew hating barbarism. Kidnapped, tortured, murdered because he was a Jew. Is his image the icon for their Islamic anti-semitism - one of Islam's contributions to humanity?
Youssouf Fofana, the “Brain of the Barbarians,” admitted that he "finished off" his Jewish victim, after 24 days of torture, stabbing him five times and setting him aflame, got “life” in prison (with a possibility of parole after 22 years). The other 25 accomplices or accessories were given jail terms ranging from acquittal to 18 years. The motive of anti-Semitism was retained for some of the defendants, but did not incur the corresponding ten-year increase in jail terms. Two men who played a key role in the Halimi kidnapping are on the loose because the police couldn’t persuade any of the defendants to cough up their names. (here)
The trial of the "Muslim barbarian" ringleader Fofana and his 26 accomplices (it was more like 50) had been suspended: in a shocking display of proud Islamic Jew hatred (consistent with the most sacred teachings of the Koran), the brutal Halimi murder trial was suspended after the defendant spewed vile invective and threw his "Arab shoes" across the courtroom at the jury. Throwing shoes at someone is a powerful insult in the Arab world. (here)
Muslim anti-semitic activity in France described by American expat in Paris, Nidra Poller -- from this post:
[Ilan Halimi's] kidnappers called a Rabbi and said we have kidnapped an orthodox Jew (which Ilan was not orthodox, he was out with the girl that lured him to his horrible death on Shabbat.) When they called the family for money, they said if you don't have it............go get it from the synagogue. This is not obvious? The police would not acknowledge the obvious antisemitic overtones. Despite pleas of Ilan's mother.
Poller went on, line by line, piece piece, the evidence is devastating.
23 people participated in torturing Ilan, another 20 were involved indirectly. The custodian of the building gave them the key to an apartment where they said they wanted to "keep someone."
Three weeks of unimaginable torture. Three weeks. So many clues. So many guilty animals partaking in the continuing torture in their "homemade concentration camp."
The screams must have been loud because the torture was especially atrocious: the thugs cut bits off the flesh of the young man, they cut his fingers and ears, they burned him with acid, and in the end poured flammable liquid on him and set him on fire.
Horrible tortures. Horrible torturers.One of the torturers would go to work at a TV station everyday and come back and partake in the torture. The girls that lured young men. They knew he had been kidnapped. They knew Yosef (the leader of the Barbarians) were extremely violent. They knew Ilan was still in his hands three weeks later. All they had to do was make an anonymous phone call to the police. No one would have known. They did not do it. No neighbor thought to say to the police, something strange is going on in this building.
The police told the family not to say a word. The Jewish community was not warned when prior attempts to kidnap Jewish men had failed. The Jewish community was not warned before the successful attempt.
Even one member of the gang that dropped out of the gang because he was shocked by their violence, did not call the police.
These neighborhoods are not ghettos. They are not sordid. Not squalid.
When Ilan was found, the head of the fire department who was called to the scene, this man with decades of experience almost fainted when he saw him. The last thing Youssef Fofana l(leader of the murdering gang, the barbarians) did was to slit his throat twice and pour an inflammable liquid on him and to set it on fire but not burn him to death because Ilan walked for perhaps one hour trying still to find a way to live.
Fofana has subsequently become a hero to many in France. He claims he is a victim, something the leftist French media has been telling the collective Fofanas for a terribly long time. The media is more than culpable as well.
In the aftermath of his murder, the French media have changed their version of the facts several times, obediently following the interpretations dictated by their government. Yet media coverage has still not shed light on the scope of this crime or placed blame on the real criminals.
