Jew-Killing Jihadist Now A Hero (27 March 2012)
"The self-avowed 'Islamic warrior' Mohammed Merah, who opened fire on a Jewish school in France and slaughtered Jewish children and a rabbi in cold blood, was no 'lone wolf', as the mainstream media initially insisted..."
Jew Hatred? What Jew Hatred? (26 March 2012)
"The Guardian's two editorials on the Islamist inspired murders of four innocent Jews in the French city of Toulouse really should win an award in great accomplishments in rhetorical propaganda..."

A Letter From Toulouse (25 March 2012)
"Many of us spent the week after the March 19, 2012 massacre at the Ozer Hatorah Jewish school in Toulouse, France, unable to get the images of it out of our heads..."
The Toulouse Massacre: More Jihad Denial (25 March 2012)
"Every time a Muslim commits murder in the name of Islam, the denial begins again: Western leaders and the mainstream media tie themselves into knots trying to explain what happened without making any reference to its guiding motivation. Last week was no different..."
The Tragedy in Toulouse (25 March 2012)
"I can't force the horrifying image out of my mind. The murderer on the motorcycle dismounted, grabbed the beautiful eight-year-old little girl by her hair. He put a gun to her head and calmly pulled the trigger. When it failed to fire, he switched to another weapon, shot the girl at point-blank range in the temple, calmly retrieved his moped and rode off..."
Murders in Toulouse, Incitement in Geneva (23 March 2012)
"At first glance, a side-meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland on Monday, March 19th, and the barbaric massacre of a Rabbi and three schoolchildren that same day in Toulouse, France, would seem utterly unconnected beyond the coincidence of the calendar. Yet there is a connection - not directly causal, but certainly moral..."
I Have Killed My Jew (23 March 2012)
"The BBC would like us to believe it is the anti-immigration comments of Sarkozy or Gueant that have stirred up anti-Semitism resulting in these recent attacks...they would have preferred you to believe it was an attack by the Far Right. Events of course failed to follow the narrative..."
Mohamad Merah, Man of the West (23 March 2012)
"The massacre of Jewish children at Oztar HaTorah Jewish Day School in Toulouse presents us with an appalling encapsulation of the depraved nature of our times - although at first glance the opposite seems to be the case..."
"The Brussels spin machine has been in overdrive, trying to explain and defend Baroness Ashton's remarks earlier this week at a UNRWA conference on 'Palestine refugees in the changing Middle East'..."
"I read this editorial in mounting disbelief, until my eyes actually widened in shock. Was there to be any acknowledgement - any at all - of how badly wrong this paper got it by leaping on these murders as evidence of the 'toxic atmosphere' created by 'rightwing rhetoric'?..."
When Political Correctness Kills (23 March 2012)
"What was most disturbing about this terrorist act - aside from its occurrence - was that the Western public officials' and media's speculation about the true killer, prior to the discovery of his identity, heavily focused on the belief that he was a white European neo-Nazi..."
French Terror Suspect Dead - What Are Lessons of Toulouse? (22 March 2012)
"In the aftermath of the world's first recorded cold-blooded murder, G-d admonishes Cain in the Bible: 'The voice of your brother's (Abel) blood[s] screams out from the earth.' Commentators struggle with why 'blood' is referred to in the plural. Perhaps the Bible is teaching that every murder creates a ripple effect that impacts far beyond the scene of the crime. ... What lessons should we learn from the latest streams of Abel's blood? Here are the major lessons:..."
"Britain's first postwar premier Clement Attlee famously rebuked one of the storm petrels of his party with the words 'a period of silence on your part would be welcome'. That very phrase seems an apt one with which to chide the journalists who, when literally nothing was yet known of the identity of the perpetrator of this week's outrages in Montauban and Toulouse, had made up their minds that a rightwing extremist was at work..."
"In the Guardian's 472 word editorial on Tuesday, France, Republican Ideals, published before the identity of the perpetrator was known, a few gnawing facts, evidence of simply unmistakable leftist intellectual tricks, stand out..."
A Letter to Catherine Ashton (22 March 2012)
"Lady Ashton, On behalf of the over 400,000 members of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, we express indignation at your utterly insensitive statement to a Palestinian youth group on Monday, immediately following the terrorist atrocity perpetrated at a Jewish school in Toulouse..."
The New Nazis (21 March 2012)
"There was a time when Jewish children were hunted down and killed in France. Their killers believed themselves to be members of a superior group that was destined to rule the world and enslave or exterminate members of inferior groups. ... What was then is now again. The occupying army doesn't wear uniforms, it wears keffiyahs. It doesn't speak German, it speaks Arabic..."
"What a tragic, evil joke. A drive-by shooter in the beautiful, almost magical, city of Toulouse, France, murders three Jewish children and a teacher in front of their school. Various VIPs issue statements about how terrible is this deed, how unspeakable. And yet at the very moment, the next round of murders, the next slanderous and inciting antisemitic lies, are being perpetrated by respectable people and institutions..."
Laying the Groundwork for the Toulouse Massacre (21 March 2012)
"When the Toulouse school massacre happened, the media rushed to say that the perpetrator was a white far-right racist. ... A killer who targeted Jews and blacks - must be a far-right white racist, right? Wrong. The suspect whom the French police have now cornered turns out to be a jihadi Islamic terrorist with self-declared links to al Qaeda, who has made trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the past. Well, there's a surprise..."
Toulouse Update (21 March 2012)
Wee well. Turns out that the vicious assassin of those young Jewish children and their teacher, along with the French soldiers, was Muslim called Mohammed who claims to be associated with an Al Queda affiliate. ... The BBC seems crestfallen..."

Moral Equivalence Watch (20 March 2012)
"On Monday morning, a gunman opened fire in Toulouse as children were arriving at a Jewish school ... Baroness Ashton, the Browno-Blairite hack ... was sympathetic but decided to place the event within the broader picture: ... Lady Ashton now says her remarks were 'taken out of context'..."
Toulouse and Us (19 March 2012)
