JNS.org A 20-year-old Frenchman was sentenced to one year in prison on Monday after making death threats by telephone to the Jewish school in Toulouse, France, where a teacher and three students were murdered in 2012.

Last March, Mohammed Merah entered the Ozar Hatorah school on a motorcycle and gunned down a 30-year-old religious education teacher and his two sons, aged 3 and 6, and the 10-year-old daughter of the school principal. Merah was killed in a standoff with policy following the shooting attack.

Lucien Abdelrhafor, a French national of Moroccan origin who claimed to be Merah’s cousin, was arrested over the weekend for making a threatening phone call to the French Jewish school, which has since changed its name from Ozar Hatorah to Ohr Torah. According to SPCJ, the French Jewish community’s security service, the man called the school on Sept. 16 and told a secretary, “I am Mohammed Merah’s cousin and I’m coming over tonight to kill you.”

The man was not actually related to Merah, according to reports.

    Who gives a damn if he’s related to another murderer or not? This guy is going to get what’s coming to him. He will be hunted down, Israeli style. That little old lady who’s a few steps behind him carrying a bag with celery sticking out at the top… she’s an Israeli spy (and mother of three, f’r yer information) and just 26 years old. Before the day is over, this asshole will be singing t’ th’ angels!!
