Toulouse Slayings Leave French Jews Shaken

Mourners at Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse, France, bid farewell to coffins bearing victims of Monday's massacre at funeral ceremony on Tuesday.

Mourners at Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse, France, bid farewell to coffins bearing victims of Monday's massacre at funeral ceremony on Tuesday.

However, remarks by European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton about the attack in Toulouse angered some.

“The days when we remember young people who have been killed in all sorts of terrible circumstances – the Belgian children having lost their lives in a terrible tragedy and when we think of what happened in Toulouse today, when we remember what happened in Norway a year ago, when we know what is happening in Syria, when we see what is happening in Gaza and Sderot and in different parts of the world – we remember young people and children who lose their lives.”

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman called the statements “inappropriate” and asked Ashton to re-examine and retract them. Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak also criticized Ashton.

Ashton said her remarks had been “distorted” and that she drew “no parallel whatsoever between the circumstances of the Toulouse attack and the situation in Gaza.”
