Paris Taxi Driver Threatened To Kill Passenger Because He Was an Israeli Jew

An Israeli tourist visiting his brother in Paris has claimed that a taxi driver in the French capital threatened to slit his throat after realising that he was a Jew from Israel during a taxi ride. Israeli Ronen Edri told his story on a television programme put out by broadcaster Keshet earlier this week saying that it had been one of the most terrifying moments of his life, Israeli newspaper Maariv reports. “I grabbed a taxi going to visit my brother in Paris, asking the driver to take me down to the address,” Edri said and after he asked the driver to turn down the radio in the vehicle the driver said, “Who are you? What do you think you are? You do not live here, you have no rights here, you are not even the owner of this vehicle.” He said the driver cursed at him in French and said, “I’ll show you what Muslims do to people like you.” Edri told the taxi driver to stop or he would not pay him the cab fare.

Fmr CIA Director Brennan: I Think Trump Is ‘Afraid’ of Putin, They ‘May Have Things That They Could Expose’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” NBC News Senior National Security and Intelligence Analyst and former CIA Director John Brennan stated that he thinks President Trump is “afraid” of Vladimir Putin. Brennan said the president has “mishandled so many matters.” He cited the president’s recent call to Vladimir Putin, and stated that “it just demonstrates that he looks at the world through a prism of what is going to help and protect Donald Trump.” He added, “I think he’s afraid of the president of Russia. … I think one can speculate as to why, that the Russians may have something on him personally, that they could always roll out and make his life more difficult. Clearly, I think it’s important for us to be able to improve relations with Russia, but the fact that he has had this fawning attitude toward Mr. Putin, has not said anything negative about him, I think continues to say to me that he does have something to fear and something very serious to fear.” Brennan further stated the Russians “may have things that they could expose and reveal.” Later on, Brennan said that Trump has “hoodwinked so many individuals who have legitimate concerns” about economic issues.
