A man in France was arrested this week for allegedly kidnapping and raping a Jewish French woman to “avenge Palestine,” according to local media.

The man, who has not yet been identified, was arrested on Tuesday. It’s not clear when the alleged crimes happened but the two reportedly met last year on an online dating app.

The French publication Le Parisien said that police arrested the 32-year-old suspect on charges of religiously-motivated death threats and use of narcotics, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Reports said that prosecutors believe that a kidnapping charge is likely forthcoming and that they are still investigating the rape allegations.

The suspect allegedly texted the woman’s mother: “Good luck, you will never find your daughter again, you will never see her again, I will prostitute your daughter.”

He allegedly said in a text message that he wanted to “avenge Palestine,” Le Parisien reported.

Police used forensic investigators to geolocate the approximate location of the woman’s phone and then used more advanced techniques to find the exact location.

The suspect reportedly acknowledged the death threats but claimed that they were just “provocations,” according to French outlet BFMTV. He was released from jail with his trial set to start in several weeks. He was barred from having further contact with the woman, The Daily Mail reported.


France has seen an explosion in anti-Semitism in the months following Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack against Israel. It has the largest Islamic population in Europe, many of whom are migrants.

In November, a Jewish woman was rushed to the hospital in the French city of Lyon after a man came to her home, stabbed her, and painted a swastika on her door.

In December, several Muslims were arrested in Meurthe-et-Moselle for allegedly planning terrorist attacks on a Christmas market.
