The Bataclan Theatre where at least 89 people perished in Fridays deprived terror attacks in Paris was threatened by Islamic extremists in the past.
A shocking video has emerged online showing a group of masked men approaching the door staff at the venue and issuing threats after pro-Israel events were held there.
The popular concert hall was owned by a Jewish family until just two months ago when it was sold.
It has held multiple fundraisers and events for various Isreali groups in the past and in 2008 held a rally for the nation's border police.
After the event up to ten men covering their faces with head scarves, issued the chilling threats.
"This is a message to the organisers of Migdal, this pro-Israel and racist and Islamophobic organization, that spends its time insulting the Palestinians, the Arabs and the Muslims.
"You are going to pay for the consequences of your acts. You're doing something very serious.
"For all those who are worried about the consequences of this provocation.
"It's understood that it causes anger in the suburbs. We have come to send you a little message. Next time we're not coming to talk."
Pascal Laloux, one of the theater’s former owners, has said that the theater was “sold in September after 40 years.”
“We’re devastated because we knew everyone who worked there,” he told Israel’s Channel 2 news.
