French consulate hosts terrorist who planned to kill top Israeli rabbi
Salah Hamouri, who spent seven years in prison for his part in a plot to assassinate Ovadia Yosef, was a guest of honor at Jerusalem function
The French Consulate in Jerusalem recently hosted as a guest of honor a Palestinian terrorist, Salah Hamouri, who was convicted of plotting to kill Ovadia Yosef, a former chief rabbi of Israel and the spiritual leader of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party, an Israeli newspaper reported Monday.
The event was held at the consulate building to celebrate the signing of terms of cooperation between the Île-de-France and the Jerusalem branch of the Palestinian Authority, the Maariv daily said. The agreement was to focus on the areas of vocational training, health, social, cultural and institutional support. The Île-de-France is one of the administrative regions of France and is composed mostly of the Paris metropolitan area.
Hamouri, an Israeli-Arab and member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was arrested in 2005 and sentenced to prison for his part in a plan to attack Yosef, a leading Sephardic rabbinic authority and the spiritual leader of the Shas political party.
