Further details emerging from yesterday’s murderous terrorist attack are even more horrifying than one could have imagined. The security camera footage shows that the murderer seized eight year old Miriam Monsonego by the hair and shot her in the head at point-blank range. What kind of animal would do such a thing to a child?
And what kind of warped, sick mind could desecrate the memory of the victims of the Toulouse attack by drawing a comparison between the deliberate murder, in cold blood of French Jewish children in France, with the unfortunate deaths of children killed in Gaza – not because they are deliberately targeted but because when Israel targets missile launchers that have launched rockets at Israeli civilians, sometimes civilian children in Gaza are in the line of fire? And they are in the line of fire because Hamas and the Islamic Jihad deliberately uses them as a shield behind which they can hide.
What, in any case, have Israel and Gaza got to do with the murder of French Jewish schoolchildren by (apparently) neo-Nazis?
The warped, sick mind in question belongs to Catherine Ashton, the EU Foreign Affairs Minister (a post to which she was appointed, not elected).
