4 killed in shooting at French Jewish school
cnn ^ | 3/19/2012 | staff

Posted on 03/19/2012 3:33:14 AM PDT by tobyhill

A gunman opened fire on a Jewish school in southern France Monday, killing four people -- the third shooting in the area in 10 days.

The shooting in the city of Toulouse left a teacher and three children dead, including a 3-year-old, said local prosecutor Michel Valet. A fourth child was injured.

The gunman arrived shortly after 8 a.m. and fled on a motor scooter after the shootings. He is believed to have used two different guns, interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.

"It's a horrible tragedy," Brandet said on CNN affiliate BFM.

It's the third shooting by a man on a motorcycle in southwest France since March 11, and authorities suspect the cases may be linked, Brandet said.

"Even if it's too early to say whether or not they are the same weapons, there are similarities," Brandet said, citing the use of a motorcycle and the location of the killings.

Ping - terrible new developments in this series of crimes.

Also, it is now said in the media that the attack at the French school is by the same gun as was used in the Paratrooper murders.

Waiting for official confirmation of this.

"All European Life Died In Auschwitz by Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez"

I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth — Europe died in Auschwitz.

We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world.

And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime. Holed up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition. We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

These are the people we burned.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

Santayana was right. Lan Astaslem لن استسلم‎

Before a single person died in Auschwitz, Barcelona and the Communists in Spain had killed over 7,000 priests. Spain never sent Jewish people to concentration camps, but they killed a lot of Catholics (until Franco ended the war and stopped the killing - with the help of Muslim troop from Morocco).

Eastern Spain purged their own history and culture in 1936.

More .45 ACP?

That was the report on the paratrooper murders, which caused me to raise an eyebrow. I can’t imagine that’s a common caliber there.

According to French daily Le Figaro

". . ., spent cartridges found at the scene on Monday were of the same .45 calibre as cartridges used in the Montauban shootings last week. The paper also reported that police sources believed it was the same killer."

Too many of the chosen people produced grandchlidren and great grandchildren who admire Marx, Stalin, Mao, Che Guevera, Castro, Hugo Chavez, and Ahmadinejad

Great grandchildren of their survivors are now using their trust funds to enable and abet the fascist murderers who tried to exterminate Jewish history and and have never stopped planning

No it is NOT a "tragedy". If the roof caved in, that's a tragedy. If a Muslim savage guns down 4 Jews, it is MURDER.

This has happened before in France: Jews murdered at the hands of Muslims. And nothing happened. Israel needs to react as they did after Munich: send agents in for retribution.

Jihad comes to Toulouse

Jihad's been in Toulouse before Jihad was a common word in the culture. I was there in 2002, and a Jewish butcher was murdered, his shop burned, a school bus with Jewish children was attacked, Jewish cemeteries were routinely desecrated throughout the country.

Marseille, and Toulouse were already filled with Muslims. The area around Republique square in Paris was like North Africa. I imagine it's much worse now than it was ten years ago.

Collectivism runs deep in Jews. Hoplophobia, too, in American Jews.

The “Smartest People” were nearly destroyed by socialism in Germany. The survivors left and went to what would become Israel, where they established a socialist state there.

Hence the derivation of the “OffenJuden” term.

None so dumb as those who will themselves not to learn.

Don't even need to. This far beyond a tragedy; it is an outrage and an abomination by any moral parameters. The story as reported; far to tame to contain the truth.

Given the 'repeat' scearios; and the warnings they contain; am wondering just what IS France going to do about it.

Would suggest, for starters; begin deportation; and if this continues deport until 'all' are gone.

If anyone knows a family in France who wishes to live and work in the USA, in a Jewish-friendly area, I’d like to try and get them sponsored. Is there anything already set up for this? I wouldn’t be here today but for people doing the same for my family. What can we do? France is not a safe place for Jews.

Won’t bet, but the fact that the other victims were Arabs, there could be anti immigrant motivation. Muslims and Jews have been the target in the current campaign. Even Sarklozy has focused on both groups.

Yes. Gunman on bike in both cases. One of the guns is the same in all three shootings. The media is speculating either French Nativist or Jihadi.

Whats your freaking point? THAT THE JEWISH CHILDREN GUNNED DOWN TODAY DESERVED IT?

Here’s a hot tip: though JINOS went for Ø real big in 2008, THEY TIPPED VIRTUALLY NO STATES.

It was ALL THE BLOOD RELATIVES OF YOU NON-JEWS who put the islamo-marxist in, SO STOP BLAMING US.

PS _ GG, your Offen crap is also revolting. JEWISH CHILDREN ARE DEAD and you whine about socialists from 70 years ago.

GUESS WHAT, THE SOCIALIST JEWISH STATE IS DEAD (and it was funded by rich capitalist jews).
