Chilling detail from Toulouse victims' funeral in Jerusalem

At the end of this post on the Toulouse terror victims' funeral in Jerusalem, I'm going to give you a chilling detail that I believe will stun you.

But first, let's go to the videotape and then more from the JPost's coverage.

Expressing his solidarity over the murders, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe declared that attacks on Jews in France are attacks on all of its 65 million citizens, speaking at the victims' joint funeral Wednesday.

"France will do everything to ensure nothing like this unbelievable tragedy ever happens again," the French foreign minister said at the cemetery in Jerusalem's Givat Shaul neighborhood. "France will not tolerate terror."

The murders, Juppe added, strike at the heart of France.

The funeral procession began at 9:15 a.m. and the official ceremony began at 10:00 a.m. at Givat Shaul's Har Hamenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem.

Knesset speaker Reuven Rivlin spoke to the gathered mourners, saying, the State of Israel has the duty to ensure that Jewish life can exist anywhere in the world.

"Anyone looking to justify hate must know that hate is senseless. The murder of the school children in Toulouse was senseless, as was the massacre of infants in Itamar," Rivin eulogized.

Rivlin went on to say that there is no justification for acts of terrorism against Jews, wherever they are, and labeled those who carry out such acts as "wild animals, who do not distinguish between Jews in Israel or in France, or between Orthodox and secular Jews. They know very well that we are all brothers."
Read the whole thing.

And now, the chilling detail I promised you. Among the mourners present at the funeral was Rabbi Shimon Rozenberg, the father of Rivki Holzberg HY"D (May God avenge her blood), who was murdered along with her husband in the Mumbai terror attack three and a half years ago. Rabbi Rozenberg was interviewed on Israel Radio.

Rabbi Rozenberg reported that Gavriel Sandler HY"D (May God avenge his blood), the 3-year old boy who was one of the Toulouse terror victims, had been named after Rabbi Rozenberg's son-in-law, Gavriel Holzberg HY"D (May God avenge his blood), who was murdered in Mumbai.
