TELEVISION – "I promise to all those people who have sent me words of love and who have supported me that I will not let go, that I will always be standing and that I will be there for this country that I love." Two days after discovering antisemitic tags on her house, Latifa Ibn Ziaten is far from giving up her fight.
Since 2012, Imad's mother, one of the soldiers killed by the terrorist Mohamed Merah, has traveled all over France to advocate acceptance of others and understanding between religions. A posture that bothers some, as evidenced by the graffiti threats found at home on June 10.
A new episode of hatred, which only strengthened the determination of the fifties.
As she explained on the set of "C to you", Wednesday, June 12, Latifa Ibn Ziaten has indeed received many messages of support following the discovery of the tags. Testimonies of respect and love that have strengthened her desire to change things. "I thank all the French, all the people who supported me, who sent messages, beautiful messages."
While some participants in a meeting at which she took part, she gave up on seeing her after the inscriptions, so she hammered her message. "Do not give up. When I saw (similar anti-Semitic inscriptions on portraits of Simone Veil), it hurt me too much. But it's cleaned up, it's erased, there's nothing now. "
For Imad Ibn Ziaten's mother, "we must not integrate fear", we must remain strong and continue the fight against hatred. To her husband, worried by the threats, she even assured that she had "no right" to stop the fight.
"Since I began this process on the ground, I know that I engage in something difficult, dangerous. But I assume. It is important for the memory of my son, I assume for youth, for the society today, "she also claimed on the set of France 5." There are plenty of young people who need me I can not stop like this.
