Prosecutors Appeal Sentences of Ilan Halimi's Murderers

I never understood the little attention paid to the brutal murder of Ilan Halimi, picturen on the left, a French Jew who was kidnapped, brutally tortured and murdered by Arabs who targeted him simply because he was a Jew.

The murderers where apprehended, convicted and sentenced to what any considered too lenient sentences. To their credit, French prosecutors are appealing the sentences of several of the convicted murderers.

Did anyone hear of Jews rioting, burning cars and attacking Arabs in France after Halimi's murders?

I didn't think so.
