According to Daily Beast reporter Dana Kennedy, a cross-section of French Muslims she spoke to in Paris suburbs are deeply conspiratorial about the terrorists attack carried out by radical Islamists, saying the real perpetrators are magical, shape-shifting Jews.
“The Kalashnikovs, the identity cards the [killers] supposedly left behind, it was all staged,” she quotes one Muslim saying. “It was a conspiracy designed by the Jews to make Muslims look bad.” (Kennedy also notes that a group of his friends “nodded in agreement.”)
Another young Muslim man named Mohamad told Kennedy that “magical Jews” were behind the attack. These Jews are apparently a “hybrid race of shape-shifters” who are “master manipulators.” (RELATED: Jews Leaving Europe For Israel In Record Numbers)
Conspiratorial Jew-hatred aside, the Muslims she spoke to also said Charlie Hebdo did not have the right to publish cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad, while making clear they did not condone the attack. Many had anti-Israel and anti-American views, but Kennedy notes they “did not seem to have much of a grasp of geopolitics.”
