After Toulouse Shooter ID'd As Muslim, Media Portrays Killer As Sympathetic Figure

Now that we know the school shooter in France is muslim, the media justifies his actions

When it was thought it might be a white neo-nazi, they condemned it. Once it was made clear the killer is muslim, the liberals begin their appeasement, using Israel’s SELF-DEFENSE against the daily dose of rockets launched by hajis in Gaza as a justification for the INTENTIONAL killing of Jewish school children.


The Toulouse killer is a Muslim terrorist so the media narrative changes again  While all the media continued yesterday to assume (and indeed hope) that the Toulouse killer was a ‘white racist’ I questioned the rationality of the assumption, because it was clear to me that the attacks seemed more in keeping with Islamic terrorism. This morning we hear – surprise, surprise -  that the killer is Mohammed Merah, an Islamic terrorist of Algerian origin, who claimed that the killings were in revenge for ‘Israel killing Palestinian children and for French military involvement in the Middle East.  


But no sooner was this announced than the media was already spinning the story in a way to suit its own narrative again. I just watched Sky News coverage and they were stressing that the killer and his family lived in a very poor housing block surrounded by wealthier neighbours, and that clearly social deprivation and poverty were a key factor. To emphasize this narrative they then interviewed a French female journalist living in London who claimed that what was terrible about the attack was that the killer was ‘French’ and that it was therefore ‘an attack against diversity’. She said that it was all down to the racist climate in France which had been made worse by Nikolas Sarkozy in the last five years and she picked out, as an example of racist lack of tolerance, the burka ban he had introduced.
