New York Times: With A Dozen Parisians Dead, Muslims Hit Hardest
by Alex Griswold
A dozen people may have been murdered by Islamic terrorists in Paris Wednesday morning, but The New York Times can't help but note the real tragedy behind the shooting: the growth of Islamophobia.
The attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo for its publication of images of Muhammad is "sure to accelerate the growth of anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe, feeding far-right nationalist parties like France's National Front," frets Times reporters Steven Erlanger and Katrin Bennhold in an article entitled "Paris Attack Reflects a 'Dangerous Moment' for Europe."
To be clear, the "dangerous moment" in the headline refers not to the murder of a dozen Parisians (including a Muslim cop), but the friction between "supporters of jihadist organizations and the white working class increasingly feeling disenfranchised and uncoupled from elites."
