‘Our Anger Is Still Strong,’ French Jewish Leader Says on Fourth Anniversary of Paris Kosher Supermarket Attack

Memorial ceremonies were held in Paris this week to mark the fourth anniversary of a deadly terror attack at a kosher supermarket there.

On Jan. 9, 2015, Amedy Coulibaly — who had pledged allegiance to ISIS — burst in to the Hyper Cacher near the Porte de Vincennes in the city’s 20th arrondissement and took more than a dozen hostages.

A multi-hour standoff with police ensued, at the end of which the heavily-armed Coulibaly was killed in an exchange of fire. Four hostages — all Jews — were found murdered inside the store.

The attack occurred two days after 12 people were massacred by a pair of Islamist gunmen at the offices of the satirical magazine Charle Hebdo in the French capital.

“Our pain is always present, our anger is still strong,” Francis Kalifat — the president of the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF) — said on Wednesday.
