Two subjects involving jihadism in France

First is the sad death of a policeman who'd traded himself as a hostage to save a girl in Trebes:
A French police officer who offered himself up to an Islamic extremist gunman in exchange for a hostage died of his injuries, raising the death toll in the attack to four, and the officer was honoured Saturday as a national hero of “exceptional courage and selflessness.”

Col. Arnaud Beltrame was among the first officers to respond to the attack on the supermarket in the south of France on Friday.

Beltrame, who first took his place among the elite police special forces in 2003 and served in Iraq in 2005, had organised a training session in the Aude region in December for just such a hostage situation. At the time, he armed his officers with paintball guns, according to Depeche du Midi, the local newspaper.

“We want to be as close to real conditions as possible,” he said then.

But when he went inside the supermarket on Friday, he had given up his own weapon and volunteered himself in exchange for a female hostage.

Unbeknownst to the Morocco-born captor, he left his mobile phone on so police outside could hear what was happening in the store. They stormed the building when they heard gunshots, officials said. Beltrame was fatally wounded.

His death raises the toll to four. The gunman was also killed, and 15 people were injured in the attack.

“Arnaud Beltrame died in the service of the nation to which he had already given so much,” President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement. “In giving his life to end the deadly plan of a jihadi terrorist, he fell as a hero.”
The country's now mourning his death. He was very brave to exchange his life to save an innocent girl, and it's terrible he had to lose his life.

Next, there's the horrible murder of a Holocaust survivor in Paris:
An 85-year-old French-Jewish Holocaust survivor was found dead on Friday in an incinerated apartment in Paris, according to reports.

The incident, the Le Parisien newspaper said, took place at the woman’s home on Avenue Philippe Auguste in the French capital’s 11th arrondissement.

A French-Jewish communal security organization, the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism (BNVCA), said five fires had been set at the apartment and the victim — named as “Mireille K.” — was also stabbed 11 times.

Police are investigating the case, and suicide has been ruled out, Le Parisien reported.

The BNVCA said a suspect was being questioned by police.

The victim had reportedly filed police complaints against a local resident who had threatened to burn her.

The BNVCA called for authorities to find and bring the perpetrator to justice, and also determine whether it was an antisemitic crime, “as everything suggests.”
This is similar to the Sarah Halimi case, and the authorities failed to act properly in that case too. They're going to have to be sued for failure to prevent a crime, and a demand must be made that any officials who failed to investigate earlier be forced to resign.
