Toulouse – The Horror Continues

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).

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?

    Ashton said that!!!! I am ashamed to be British. 😦 Sadly this is happening more and more. Have you read the book “The World turned upside down” by Melanie Phillips? It makes very interesting reading. x

    The fact that Catherine Ashton drew this analogy suggests that she has some sort of insight into the mind of the person who carried out the murder of the Jewish children. But at the time she made that speech, the killer had not yet been identified and there was even speculation that it might be a right-wing French nationalist. How did Ms Ashton know, I wonder?

    • Now that the identity of the murderer is known, there is speculation that the French authorities deliberately leaked the disinformation about the right-wing suspects, in order to divert the justified anger of the Jewish community away from the Muslim community.
