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 radical 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 Causeur news website. He added that “there are numbers on that too. I have the numbers. How do you respond?” Caron made the remark as a panelist during a 30-minute talk with Alexandre Arcady, the director of a newly released film titled “24 Days” about the 2006 murder of Ilan Halimi, a young salesman who was tortured and murdered near Paris by a gang who abducted him because he was Jewish.



Queried by French media on the decision to censor the discussion, a France 2 spokesperson wrote in a statement: “Alexandre Arcady came to speak about his film. Aymeric Caron’s statements were irrelevant to the subject.”
