Wow: BBC says attacks on Jews and "blasphemers" aren't as bad as attacks on everyone else

The British Campaign Against Antisemitism highlights a very interesting section of an analysis by the BBC on the terror attacks in Europe:

Through the last 18 months of jihadist terror in France, a simple pattern is emerging: it keeps getting worse.

If the January 2015 attacks were aimed at specific groups - Jews and blasphemers - the November follow-up was more indiscriminate.

At the Bataclan and at the cafes the Islamists killed young adults, out being European hedonists.

This time, it's gone a step further.

In Nice, it is the people at large - families and groups of friends - doing nothing more provocative than attending a national celebration. Ten children were among the dead.
In the mind of the BBC's Hugh Schofield, terror attacks aren't so bad when they target people who aren't Hugh Schofield. In his mind, jihadists have some sort of logical reason to attack Jews, cartoonists and kids dancing. Targeting them is not nearly as bad as targeting random people that he might feel more empathy for.

But even then, Schofield manages to distance himself and his readers from the recent attacks by saying that the terrorists in France had "a hatred for France, for its symbols, and for all it stands for." Not the West, not non-Muslims - just the French.

It is as if Schofield completely forgot what happened on July 7. 2005, in London.

This is not analysis: this is a BBC employee who is completely clueless about what the jihadists are about, and who does not feel that Jews being murdered while shopping is as bad as French people being murdered while celebrating a holiday.
