Editors of a French television talk show censored a panelist’s comparison between the murder of Jewish children in Toulouse and the actions of the Israeli army.

Aymeric Caron, a left-wing French journalist, made the comparison on April 26 on France 2’s show “On n’est Pas Couche” (“We’re Not Asleep”) during a discussion on anti-Semitism in France and the 2012 murder of three children and a rabbi in Toulouse by Mohammed Merah, a radicalized Islamist.

“Merah would say he killed Jewish children because the Israeli army kills Palestinian children,” Caron said, according to a transcript of the censored sequence that appeared last week on the news website causeur.fr. “There are numbers on that too. I have the numbers. How do you respond?”
