France: Jewish MP says he gets numerous death threats

Via Artuz 7:

Meyer Habib is a Jewish MP, representing the French citizens living abroad in Turkey, Italy, Greece, the Vatican, San Marino, Malta, and Israel.  Half the district's registered voters reside in Israel.

Following the arrest of a teenager who threatened to execute him Islamic State style, he says he was not interested in this issue gaining traction in the news.

He says he receives numerous death threats, mostly on the internet. "We'll kill you", "We'll die with you", "We know where you are", "Your time is limited".

Habib, who has two armed guards, says he gets dozens, even hundreds, of death threats. He usually ignores them.  He says he himself has guards, but all the other Jews in the country have no such protection.
