CNN Says Terrorism at Kosher Market Not Anti-Semitic

French President Francois Hollande quickly labeled the terrorist attack on a kosher market in Paris as “anti-Semitic,” but CNN isn’t convinced.

Chris Cuomo and Isa Soares charged that since some Muslims also shop at the kosher market, that it couldn’t have been been defined as an anti-Semitic attack.

Cuomo: Let’s go to Isa Soares. The French President Isa —You are outside of the kosher market where hostages were held and many were released. Some did not make it out. Others were injured. So were some of the S.W.A.T. Team members that perpetrated the assault there to try to free them. The French president said this was an anti-Semitic attack. Now, of course, it’s a kosher market. We’re also told that many Muslims shopped there as well to fill their own specific religious dietary needs. What have you heard there about how this is perceived and whether or not it was a specific targeting attack of Jews?

Soares: Hi, Chris. Yes, the people I’ve been speaking to, they’re not really saying it was specifically attacking Jews. This is not particularly a Jewish area in the east of Paris. This is middle class area. It’s lots of different stores. Not just Jewish stores like you said, Muslim stores as well. A variety of shops here. People would not expect to see much police activity in this area. So it’s a very ordinary, if I can say that, a very ordinary part of the east of Paris, really.

This isn’t Cuomo’s first attempt to rewrite the events of last week’s terrorist attacks in France. He also referred to the terrorists as being “African-American.”

Why do you believe CNN is attempting to change the narrative to this story?
