To Some French Muslims, ‘Magical Jews’ Masterminded Paris Terror Spree

In a telling example of the perverse ability of anti-Semites to blame Jews and Israelis for – literally – almost anything, a group of French Muslims interviewed by The Daily Beast, contend that “the Jews” were behind the horrific terror attacks in Paris last week which left 17 dead – among them four Jews.

“Magical Jews” were behind the attacks, according to one resident of the suburb of Saint-Denis, who gave his name as “Mohammed,” and called the Jews a “hybrid race of shape shifters.”

Mohammed, described as a “delinquent” yet devout Muslim, claimed Jews “…know how to get in everywhere. They are master manipulators.”

According to 24-year-old Mehdi Boulan of the poor suburb of Sevran, some 10 miles north of the capital, “The Kalashnikovs, the identity cards the [killers] supposedly left behind, it was all staged.”

Boulan – as the author noted – and his friends agreed that the horrific attacks were “a conspiracy designed by the Jews to make Muslims look bad.”

The unhinged idea that “The Mossad” carries out so-called “false-flag attacks,” is a commonly-held conspiracy theory, heartily adopted by sensationalist western academics like Naomi Wolf, as well as avowed anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups alike, such as Greta Berlin of the Free Gaza Movement.

Group co-founder Mary-Hughes Thompson, echoed those same views in a posting on Twitter. “#Hebdo killings indefensible. Can’t help thinking #JSIL Mossad false flag though. Killers spoke with perfect French accents. Time will tell,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, the openly anti-Semitic mayor of Ankara, Turkey, Ibrahim Melih Gökçek, told a youth congress on Sunday that Israel was angry with France for having voted in favor of a Palestinian statehood resolution at a United Nations Security Council meeting last month.

“Israel certainly doesn’t want this sentiment to expand in Europe,” he claimed, contending, “That’s why it is certain that Mossad is behind these kinds of incidents. [The] Mossad inflames Islamophobia by causing such incidents,” said Gökçek, who is a member of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development Party.

“Palestine being recognized as a state is why these [attacks] have taken place,” the mayor concluded, according to the Turkish newspaper Zaman.
