This is one of those very sad stories that just kind of leaves me slack-jawed.
A French Jihadi murdered a rabbi, two of his children, and another child in a Jewish school in the beautiful city of Toulouse.
What can one say about this?
It's worth noting that upon initial reports the media leaped to the conclusion that the perpetrator was a hard-line, right-wing, neo-Nazi, skin-head type. This has turned out not to be true. Mohamed Merah is a violent radical Islamist who killed cops and killed Jews because his political movement whipped up ideological hatred within his heart.
I am not entirely certain how the American right is going to react to this story, but there will be elements on the left that will blame either Israel or both Israel and the United States for these hideous and brutal murders. Some will claim, or suggest, or otherwise imply, that the devil made him do it. They will talk about colonialism and imperialism and occupation and "apartheid walls" and on and on and on and, thereby, justifying the unjustifiable.
Of the various forms of bigotry common on the progressive-left, among the worst is the condescension toward Arabs and Muslims. I find it absolutely grotesque. If you read the left press it is painfully clear that they tend not to believe that people of color have agency or are in any way responsible for themselves. Whenever an Arab or Muslim makes news for doing "bad," the tendency on the left is to blame ourselves or the Jewish state or both.
What they will avoid talking about, however, is the radical Jihad as a movement that spreads hatred throughout much of the Muslim world toward non-Muslims and most particularly toward Jews.
Of that you can be certain.
