French Media and the Halimi Affair

Israellycool reader Grumpy Troll has given some more insight into the French media’s coverage of the murder of Ilan Halimi. 

Here in France, the religion of Ilan Halimi’s killers is virtually unreported. No major French news agency has revealed that the murderers recited the Qur’an in calls to the family. There has only been Nicolas Sarkozy to say, at the National Assembly, that the murderers supported the Palestinian cause, an unreported fact. Don’t want to offend our peaceful Muslim community, do we? The one that called Sarkozy a “dirty Jew” during the riots.

There is, very much, a problem in France. If it had been a Jew killing a Muslim, there is no doubt that the media wouldn’t have missed the “detail”.
