On January 10, 2015, the Australian-born Jewish billionaire and owner of News Corporation, Rupert Murdoch in the wake of the four Jewish hostages killed at the Kosher Grocery store in Paris, wrote on his tweeter page: “Maybe most Muslims peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible“.
Murdoch was shocked by the response he received for his tweet message. For example, JK Rowling, author of Harry Potter books, tweeted: “I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I’ll auto-excommunicate.” Australia’s famous comedian Adam Hills tweeted: “Oh good, Rupert Murdoch has waded into the Charlie Hebdo debate. I was wondering what an outdated, bigoted, sociopath might make of it all.” Another tweeter said: “Should all Australians be blamed for giving birth to a criminal like Rupert Murdoch.” He was referring to News Corp’s hacking of the voicemails of dead school children.
Interestingly, while government officials and Muslim clerics in almost every Muslim country have condemned the Paris attacks – Meron Rapoport, a distinguished Israeli journalist said at the Middle East Eye that most Israeli leaders and public felt satisfaction over how the French were being punished.
“It cannot be denied that there was an amount of not so hidden satisfaction in Israel after the attacks in Paris, an attitude which could be summarised as “we told you so”. The attack on Charlie Hebdo offices – even more than the attack on the kosher grocery, which was seen as a “classical” act of anti-Semitism – is conceived by many in Israel as a confirmation of what they, Israelis, already “know” about Europe, but that Europeans themselves “failed” to understand because of their stubborn commitment to a pluralist society,” Rapoport said.
No American leader has asked Jews to apologize for Israel’s attack on American spying ship USS Liberty in 1967 or the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Christians have not been asked to apologize for Oklahoma city bombing in 1995. So why some idiot expects Muslims to apology for the recent acts of terrorism in Paris which happened to be an inside job to demonize Muslim communities in France and other European countries which support Palestinian resistance against Jewish occupation.
American academic, writer and author, Kevin Barrett, PhD, says that like the 9-11, the Charlie Hebdo is also a false flag operation to demonize Islam for Israeli interests.
On October 13, 2010, one of America’s powerful Jewish lobby group, ADL, honored Ruport Murdoch for his stalwart support of Israel and his commitment to promoting respect and speaking out against anti-Semitism.
