Belgium: Possible Belliraj hit list found

A document was confiscated during a search of the Belgian residence of the Belgian-Moroccan Abdelkader Belliraj, who is suspected of being the leader of a terrorist network, on which there are six names of French and Belgian Jews which he possibly wanted to kill.  One of the names is that of French philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy, according to newspaper La Dernière Heure.

The Morocaan Belgian is currently standing trial in the Moroccan city of Salé, next to the capital Rabat, for murder and murder attempts.  He has confessed that he killed two Jews in Brussels and that he had given the orders for four other murders in Belgium in 1989 and 1990.  The list found in Belliraj's house brings up the gravest suspicions, according to La Dernière Heure.

The people on the list are:
- Simone Susskind, co-founder of the secular Jewish center
- Edmond Blattchen, who presents the program "Noms de Dieux" on the French language broadcaster RTBF
- Markus Pardes, chairman of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists
- Rabbi Josy Eisenberg
- Jean-Claude Bologne, secretary general of the Societe des Gens de Lettres, the French assocaiton of authors
- Bernard-Henri Levy, French philosopher and writer
