When political correctness leads to Jewish kids being killed

A year ago Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah killed 3 children and a parent/teacher at a Jewish School in Toulouse. Before those murders he had killed two French soldiers in separate incidents. The politically correct French authorities - along with the main stream media - insisted initially that the murderer must be a 'right wing white racist', even though it was clear to those who were not naive (including myself as I blogged my views about it before the real killer was known) that the killer was a Muslim.
Murdered because of political correctness:  Rabbi Yonatan Sandler and his sons Aryeh, 6, and Gavriel, 3 (Left);  Myriam Monsenego, 8 (Right)
Now it transpires - see Daniel Greenfield's report - that this political correctness cost the lives of the Jewish children because the French intelligence service had identified Merah as a likely suspect after the first two killings but decided not to arrest him since, as a Muslim, he did not fit their profile of a white racist.

Thanks for those links. Very worrying indeed.

I'm not Israeli, I'm not Jewish, but as soon as I read this story I knew there was a reason the killer had targeted Jews... How can you be so blind?

On the surface this is true. However the extensive documentaries recently shown here in France make it clear that the traditional rivalry/mutual disrespect between various branches of the French policing services is very much to blame. Throughout this whole Merah affair there is incompetence, refusal to share information etc etc. This was very prevalent in the relations between the FBI and CIA before 9/11. One hopes lessons might be learnt but I'm not very optimistic.
