In an exclusive interview I conducted with a friend of a number of the victims inside the Paris kosher supermarket, one of the startling revelations (of many, I might add) was the real target of Amedy Coulibaly’s jihad the day he shot and killed a French policewoman was the Jewish day school.
Mohammed Merah, who murdered four people, including three children, at a Jewish day school in france in March 2012, first killed three members of the French military. Coulibaly, my source said, worked the same way, first participating in the jihad massacre at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and then going to Hyper Cacher to kill Jews. “I talked to the owner of the supermarket,” Joseph said, “and apparently, from what he told me, Amedy Coulibaly was there a week ago. The owner’s brother was inside the store during the siege and he recognized Coulibaly, because he saw him a week ago. The owner’s brother was shot in the arm, and he is alive to tell the story.”
The entire blockbuster interview is published at Breitbart.

Maps of Paris Jewish Schools Found in Terrorist’s Car, Jewish Press, January 11, 2015
Maps with the locations of Jewish schools on them were found in his car.
On Thursday, Coulibaya shot and murdered a female police officer who was responding to a car accident. Investigators now suspect that he had been planning to attack a Jewish school located a short distance beyond the site of the crash.
The policewoman’s death had caused confusion, as it was not clear why Coulibaya would have traveled from his own neighborhood to the district of Mountrouge to shoot a random police officer.
“Everyone thinks he was on his way to the school,” an employee at a bakery near the site of the shooting told the British Guardian.
In 2012, a terrorist attacked a Jewish school in Toulouse, murdering four people. The victims were a father and his two young sons, and an 8-year-0ld girl.
In a video apparently recorded after the Thursday attack, Coulibaya states that he “went out a bit against the police so that it has more impact,” in order to synchronize his attack with the attack on the French magazine Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will be in france on Sunday to attend a unity rally to protest terrorism. Many world leaders plan to attend the rally, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, King Abdullah II of Jordan and his Queen, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
