Jewish children murdered in Toulouse school shooting – round up the usual suspects

by | 19th, March 2012

IS everyone anti-semitic even the Jews? In Toulouse, France, a gunman has fired on the Ozar Hatorah Jewish secondary school.

Teacher Jonathan Sandler, 30, his sons Aryeh, three, and Gavriel Yissacher, six, and Miriam Montenago, the eight-year-old daughter of the school’s headteacher, have been shot dead. A 17-year-old has been seriously injured. (Update: he died.)

Why? Was it drugs? Honour killing? Mistaken identity? Is that why they died? Or do you look at the names and the school and the race of the victims and think they were the victims of anti-semitism?

Witness Franck Califa tells media:

“For now, I have only tears. I’m in shock. I do not think things like that can happen. I held one of the victims in my arms.”

On Thursday last, a man on a motorbike shot three French paratroopers 29 north of Toulouse. Just over one week ago, a French soldier was murderd by a man on a motorbike.

Chief Sergeant Imad Ibn Ziahen, 30, of the 1st Parachute Regiment, was shot and killed in a residential district in Toulouse on March 11. Four days later Corporal Abel Chenoulf, 24, and Corporal Loic Lieber, 28, of the 17th Parachute Regiment, were shot and killed as they withdraw money from a cash dispenser opposite their barracks in nearby Montauban. Private Mohamed Legouad, 26, was seriously injured in the shooting.
