    France shooting: Toulouse Jewish school attack kills four

    France shooting: Toulouse Jewish school attack kills four
    VIDEO REPORT AT URL BELOW
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-17426313
    Journalist Chris Bockman said the gunman shot at point blnk range, in "a brazen attack in A gunman has shot dead a teacher and three children at a Jewish school in the French city of Toulouse.
    He opened fire on the Ozar Hatorah school in the north-east of the city, also seriously injuring a teenage boy.

    The attacker fled on a scooter, in similar style to the killer of three soldiers in two separate incidents in the same part of France last week. Police say the same .45 calibre gun was used in all three attacks. The search for the killer is now under way.

    Sources close to the investigation say the number plate of the scooter has now been recovered from CCTV cameras at the entrance to the school. A special service in memory of the victims is taking place at one of the synagogues in Toulouse. There will also be a silent march in Paris at 20:00 (19:00).

    President Nicolas Sarkozy, who flew to Toulouse, described the attack as a "national tragedy". He has called for all schools in France to observe a minute's silence on Tuesday and vowed to hunt down the killer. All candidates in the French presidential election have suspended their campaigns.

    The grand rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim said he was "horrified" and "stunned" by what had happened. Israel called on the French authorities "to shed full light on this tragedy and bring the perpetrators to justice".

    Monday's attack happened at around 08:00, as children and their parents were arriving at the school, in the Jolimont area of the city. Witnesses said the gunman pulled up on a black scooter and began shooting at an area which serves as the drop-off point for the school's nursery- and primary-age children.

    "This man alighted from his moped and, as he was outside the school, he shot at everybody who was near him, children or adults. Children were chased right into the school," local prosecutor Michel Valet told journalists. The gunman is reported to have initially used a 9mm gun, but when it jammed, he switched to a .45 calibre weapon.

    A teacher at the school, believed to be aged 30, and his two children, aged three and six, are reported to have been killed. The third child killed was aged between eight and 10 years old and belonged to another teacher at the school, French media report.

    President Nicolas Sarkozy: "These are our children too. They are not just your children." A 17-year-old was seriously injured. As the search for the killer got under way, wailing sirens and the sounds of helicopters overhead could be heard throughout the morning.

    French Prime Minister Francois Fillon has said extra security measures will be put in place at all schools and religious buildings. Some 60 police officers, including anti-terrorist specialists, had already been drafted in to the Toulouse area earlier in the week to help investigate the attacks on the soldiers.

    A paratrooper out of uniform was shot dead in a residential area of Toulouse just over a week ago, while two soldiers were killed and a third wounded as they used a cash machine in the town of Montauban, some 29 miles (46km) away, on Thursday.

    All three - of North African and Caribbean origin - were shot by a man on a scooter. A .45 calibre weapon was also used in the Montauban shootings. Police have said the .45 calibre weapon fired on Monday was the same as the gun used to kill the three soldiers in Toulouse and Montauban.

    Socialist leader Francois Hollande also cancelled his campaigning engagements for next month's presidential election in order to travel to Toulouse. "You cannot murder children like this on the territory of the Republic [France] without being held to account," he said.

    Mr Sarkozy echoed the comments of other French officials when he said he was "struck by the similarities" of the recent attacks, but he warned against jumping to conclusions. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "a loathsome murder of Jews, which included small children" and said an anti-Semitic motive could not be ruled out.

    The Vatican also condemned the killings, as did French far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who called on the authorities to do everything to prevent another such attack. Monday's shooting was the deadliest attack on Jews in France since a shooting in 1982 at a restaurant in Paris, when six people were killed and 22 injured.

    Seems on secondary reports that he murdered a Rabbi and his two sons. This killer is targeting Jews and black people.

    Re: France shooting: Toulouse Jewish school attack kills four

    The terrorist in Toulouse is surrounded:

    Police hunting a gunman suspected of killing seven people in southern France are laying siege to a flat in Toulouse.

    The man, named as Mohammed Merah, 23, a Frenchman of Algerian origin, has said he belongs to al-Qaeda and acted to "avenge Palestinian children".

    Police are negotiating with the man, who is still said to be armed but says he may give himself up this afternoon.

    French Interior Minister Claude Gueant said the man had been tracked by French intelligence for "several years".

    The brother of the suspect has been arrested in another part of Toulouse, with several other relatives also reported detained.

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy has made a televised address, paying tribute to the security forces who are carrying out the operation and saying that terrorism "will never be able to fracture our national community"...

    more info on the terrorist dog:

    Prosecutor Francois Molins said Merah was a self-taught radical Salafi who had been to Afghanistan twice and had trained in the Pakistani militant stronghold of Waziristan. He asserted that the gunman had also planned to carry out another shooting on Wednesday before being found by the police.

    French authorities – like others in Europe – have long been concerned about "lone-wolf" attacks by young, Internet-savvy militants who self-radicalize online. Molins' comments, however, marked the first time a radical Islamic motive has been ascribed to killings in France in years.

    Re: France shooting: Toulouse Jewish school attack kills four

    It is a pity the French government closed down their prison colonies in French Guiana.

    French police forces stormed the Toulouse residence of Mohamed Merah, the gunman believed to be responsible for Monday's deadly shooting at Ozar Hatorah Jewish School in the city.

    Three explosions marked the onset of the raid shortly before midnight, blasting through the apartment where Merah has been holed up since 3 am Wednesday and effectively ending nearly 21 hours of negotiations and what has been called one of the most dramatic standoffs France has ever seen.

    French authorities delayed the raid for as long as possible because their goal was to take Merah alive, a police source told the media. "We don't want him to become a martyr," he said....

    Post Arab media conflicted over Toulouse attack

    Mohammed Merah's murderous shooting on Ozar Hatorah Jewish School in France on Monday has sparked controversy on the Arab media. Many reporters and bloggers have voiced their opinion about the deadly attack, and while some strongly condemn it, others draw comparisons between Toulouse and Gaza.

    One Algerian journalists, known for his anti-Israel rhetoric, wrote an article titled: "Israeli blood is always worth more." In the article, he wondered why the world was enraged by the murder of the four Israelis is Toulouse, while the incident in which three French soldiers were killed in southern France was put on the backburner. He claimed that it was because two of the soldiers were Muslim of Moroccan decent and the third from Antilles. He went on to criticize the global attitude towards Israeli Air Force strikes on Gaza Strip compared with the shooting in Toulouse, slamming global media for neglecting to cover the "barbaric" death of dozens of Palestinian victims in Gaza, including children.

    The writer mentioned the American soldier who shot and killed 16 Afghan citizens last week, saying that Washington made do with a laconic message calling the incident "unfortunate." According to the Algerian reporter, "The Zionist lobby's influence managed to buy the protection of senior politicians and media figures across the world. They began to see things only from the point of view of Tel Aviv and its ally Washington, in accordance to the logic of 'Israel's security,' 'anti-Semitism' and 'Islamic terrorism.'"

    However the journalist did admit that the Arabs are somewhat to blame for their situation: "The last comment, sadly, is the disintegration of the spiritual unity of the Arabs and Muslims after their interests started to collide, and their patrons continue to grow in numbers. Eventually, we'll see that we are the reason for the cheapening of the Arab and Muslim blood," he wrote

    There were, however, others who offered their condolences for the terrible events in France. One Algerian blogger published a picture of the Jewish victims and wrote: "The young rabbi was murdered with his two small children and another girl, in a crime that has all the elements of hate and anti-Semitism. God bless their souls."

    the London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat, published an article called "The massacre in Toulouse," clearly stating that "if this is the action of a right-wing man with a Nazi orientation, then its a crazy act that shouldn't be called 'an anti-Semitic act' but 'an act against humanity.' If the killer is a violent Muslim extremist, then it's a crime against humanity and not just against the Jews, but also against Islam and Christians and against all the religions in the world," the piece noted.

    Yes, it is fantastic to have Sharon back on the Israel Forum. Welcome back!

    A further update on the terrorist:

    TOULOUSE, France - A 23-year-old gunman who said al-Qaida inspired him to kill seven people in France died from a gunshot wound to the head on Thursday as he scrambled out of a ground-floor window during a gunbattle with elite police commandos.

    Mohamed Merah, a Frenchman of Algerian origin, died in a hail of bullets at the end of a 30-hour standoff with police at his apartment in southern France and after confessing to killing three soldiers, three Jewish children and a rabbi.

    Aftermath of the Toulouse attacks:

    French authorities arrested 19 suspected Islamic militants and seized weapons in raids in Toulouse.

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy said the Friday raids, conducted in the city where an Islamist militant gunned down four Jews outside a religious school last week, were necessary to safeguard the country’s security, according to news reports.

    “It’s our duty to guarantee the security of the French people,” Sarkozy said. “We have no choice. It’s absolutely indispensable.”...
