The Jewish school in France where a gunman killed three children and
a teacher has received a rash of anti-Semitic hate mail and phone
calls since the attack.
The Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse complained to the local
prosecutor about the harassing mail and phone calls, the French news
agency AFP reported.
Prosecutor Michel Valet said Wednesday that he had ordered a police
investigation into the incidents.
The school´s e-mail system reportedly filled up with messages calling
for the murder of Jews and linking the attack to the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict, according to AFP.
The gunman, Mohammed Merah, who was killed by police after a 30-hour
siege, told French police that he killed the Jewish students at the
school in revenge for Palestinian children killed in Gaza, and had
killed three French soldiers the previous week for serving in

at the request of his father. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post
