Jews - killed for being Jews - do not count as terrorist victims

Already forgotten Islamist terrorist victims in France: Rabbi Yonatan Sandler and his sons Aryeh, 6, and Gavriel, 3 (Left);  Myriam Monsenego, 8 (Right)
The world will, rightly, never forget the murder of the Charlie Hebdo journalists (although the religion of their killers will be obfuscated). However, the main stream media is already doing its best to play down the fact that - within hours of their murder earlier today - the Jews who were killed at the end of the episode were murdered by Islamists because they were Jews. For some reason only Israeli media reported the rather important fact that the terrorist who carried out the murders called French TV to say he wanted to target Jews.  Sky News tonight is even now still pushing the narrative that the ultimate victims here are French Muslims who face the mythical 'backlash'.

And if you do not think the Jewish victims will be quickly forgotten, then how do you explain the fact that multiple commentators and members of the public who have been interviewed in France in the last few days have been saying that this kind of terrorist attack is something 'new' in France? It is less than 3 years since a French Al Qaeda terrorist carried out a string of murders culminating in the singling out of Jewish children for slaughter at their school in Toulouse. On that occasion the media lost interest in the case when it was Jews being singled out by an Islamist for murder because they were Jews. And, of course, everyone has forgotten the mass anti-semitic attacks in Paris only last summer.

The BBC officially refuses to classify terrorist attacks against Jewish civilians in Israel - including babies - as being terrorist attacks. Informally the media is extending this 'classification' to terrorist attacks against Jews outside of Israel. It does not fit the media narrative to admit that Muslims want to kill Jews because they are Jews.

And the singling out of Jews for murder at the end of the Charlie Hebdo episode needs to be played down as it will create problems for plenty of people - including even some so-called friends - who took the trouble to say that, while they condemn the murders of the Charlie Hebdo journalists, they also condemn the actions of the journalists who 'insulted Islam'. So, basically, the journalists 'had it coming to them'. Can those apologists for Islamic terrorism explain why French Jews shopping in a kosher store for Sabbath deserved to be killed**

UPDATE: Netanyahu: "France has right to exist but response is disproportionate" 

Previous report: Paris attacks: Do not jump to could be "right-wing extremists 

** Ah - of course - it's justified because of 'Israel's treatment of Palestinians'.

Spot on. A double standard that shows the complete immorality of the world media and the Jew hating left.

Edgar, I read somewhere (can't recall where)that there's a theory going around that the kosher supermarket Islamist fiend (now dead) had been on his way to target a Jewish primary school when he killed the French policewoman and blasted a street cleaner in the face.
Meanwhile, as you probably know:

Daphne I heard the story about the Jewish school but not seen confirmation.
