THE HAGUE -- French police on Sunday said they were investigating death threats made against the country’s chief rabbi.

Police said over the weekend that they are looking for people connected to a photomontage disseminated through Facebook which shows Rabbi Gilles Bernheim with a revolver pointing at his head. The picture shows Bernheim wearing a Star of David on his forehead.A lighter labeled as containing Zyklon B - the compound used in Nazi gas chambers - is being held up to his nostrils.

“Don’t worry, Bernheim, I won’t deport you. I just want you to breathe in the content of this lighter,” a caption reads. The photomontage is signed by “Bakala LBD.”
