Editor’s Note: Right now, the authorities believe this was the work of a single gunman, likely with a neo-Nazi ideology. An anonymous writer who reads this site submitted the following post to offer a few reasons as to why an Iranian role should be looked at.
The horrific March 19 attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse, France, where the killer rode a motorcycle and specifically chased after Jewish kids, was seen immediately as the work of a Muslim extremist, individual or group. The attack has been linked to another attack on French paratroopers whose unit served in Afghanistan. These paratroopers have a North African background, causing some to suspect that the culprits were neo-Nazis (or something similar) that are both anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim.
Former chief of Israel’s Mossad spy agency, Danny Yatom said that if these were terrorist attacks, Iran or Hezbollah are the most likely suspects. As ABC News reports, Yaton said that “assailants prefer Jewish civilian targets because they are easier to hit than Israeli ones.”
There are some other things to note:
1. Deceit (Taqiyya).
It wouldn’t be a far fetched idea to fathom that Hezbollah, which began its “career” as a deceitful group, in masking its terror-attacks (in the 1980s) under different names, such as Islamic jihad, and has a history of almost never admitting to its crimes. Moreover, Hezbollah (like Palestinian-Arab Hamas) who routinely use civilian Arab population as pawns to tarnish Israel’s name (Experts say that Hamas’ use of civilians as human shields was actually inspired by Hezbollah), might even have murdered the Arab paratroopers, thus catching two birds at once. Killing “anti-Islamic” so-called “colonial” French soldiers, and blurring any clear exposure, by throwing in a suspicion of a “far-right” element, as a ploy.
2. Motorcycle attacks
The common Motorcycle theme, as in Iranian/Hezbollah attack in Bangkok on February, in trying to send a “message” reply to a January motorcycle attack on a nuclear scientist, which the Islamic Republic blamed on Israel.
3. Global Jewish targets
In 2008, Hezbollah renewed its jihad on ‘Global Jewish targets‘ It also comes around the 20th anniversary of Iran/Hezbollah attack on Israeli embassy in Argentina. Add to it the February warning by Iran/Hezbollah to attack global Jewish targets, you get a whole Iranian Hezbollah monstrous attack, in a “complex” cloak, trying to hide under an anti-Jewish “non-Islamic” mask.
Anti-Jewish blind hatred: Hezbollah has been more open about admitting its Islamofascistic anti-Jewish hatred. In 2002, Nasrallah said “if they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” So is the “apes and pigs” dehumanization, so rapid in its al-Manar hate-media, banned in US/European countries.
In conclusion, an Iranian/Hezbollah hand might be behind these attacks. They may have directly carried them out or teamed up with local extremists as cover. And remember, it wasn’t that long ago that it was reported that Iran and Al-Qaeda had teamed up to carry out “spectacular” terrorism in the West and they thought Europe was the most likely target.
