J’Accuse: York University Newspaper Compares Orthodox Jews with Charlie Hebdo Terrorists

The common thread tying together the murders of Jewish worshippers in a Jerusalem synagogue, the murders of people in the Nigerian towns of Gaba and Doro Gowon, and the murders of Jews and cartoonists last week in Paris is Islamic terrorism.

Incredibly, the student newspaper at York University – the Excalibur – chose to frame its coverage of the Charlie Hebdo massacre around the moral failures of a handful of Orthodox Jewish men. The message given to over 55,000 students in Canada’s third largest university is that, somehow, it’s always about the Jews.
