Did UN worker’s anti-Israel tweet provoke Mohammed Merah to murder?

MOHAMMED Merah is the man suspected of murdering four Jews – three of them young children – in Toulouse. Mohammed Merah is a 24-year-old French citizen of Algerian extraction, self-declared Islamist warrior and member of the al-Qaeda network, linked to banned Islamist group Forsane Alizza (Knights of Pride), and once arrested in the Afghan city of Kandahar.

Did Mohammed Merah murder Jewish children because little over week earlier, on March 12, UN worker Khulood Badawi posted a photo of a cloodied child on @KhuloodBadawi? Did it play a part in his thinking? (She has since taken it down, later writing: “Correction: I tweeted the photo believing it was from the last round of violence & it turned out to be from 2006.”)

Her original caption read:

Long Live Palestine – Palestine is bleeding – Another child killed by #Israel..Another father carrying his child to the grace in #Gaza.
