Times of Israel – 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 ÃŽle-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 ÃŽle-de-France is one of the administrative regions of France and is composed mostly of the Paris metropolitan area.
