Unbelievable: Baroness Ashton on Toulouse

This seems an extraordinary response to the shootings in Toulouse:

European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton compared the children who were murdered in Monday’s shooting attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse, France with children who are killed in Gaza.

“When we think about what happened today in Toulouse, we remember what happened in Norway last year, we know what is happening in Syria, and we see what is happening in Gaza and other places,” Ashton said on the sidelines of a meeting of Palestinian youths in Brussels.

As is pointed out here – she might say she was simply saying it’s awful when children die, whatever the cause – but she can hardly be surprised that her words are being greeted with outrage.
