January 9, 2015 - The article below appeared in ibtimes, but it was then removed:


There is no clarity on which organisation is behind the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday and therefore, conspiracy theories are gaining traction in internet forums.

Fingers are being pointed toward intelligence agencies and Mossad of Israel is a prime contender.

It is believed that Israel has a grouse against France, especially because French MPs voted in favour of recognising the Palestinian state and also France voted against Israel at the UN recently, conspiracy bloggers such as ‘Aangirfan’ note.

In Early December 2014, when France’s lower house of parliament voted 339 votes to 151 urging the government to recognise the Palestinian state, Israel was patently unhappy. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the vote a “grave mistake”.

Israel had warned France of grave consequences even before the country voted in favour of Palestine. 

Speaking to reporters in Jerusalem, France 24 reported Netanyahu as saying that time: “Do they have nothing better to do at a time of beheadings across the Middle East, including that of a French citizen? Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake.

“The State of Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people, the only state that we have, and the Palestinians demanding a state do not want to recognise the right to have a state for the Jewish people.”

Israel, last week, also expressed its “deep disappointment” with France for voting for a Palestinian resolution at the UN Security Council and calling for a full IDF withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by the end of 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported.

France was one of eight countries supporting Palestine in the Security Council – although it fell one-vote short of the nine necessary to pass.

Although there is no way to verify the claims that Mossad was involved, the backdrop in which the attack took place seems to indicate that it might be involved, many conspiracy theorists have noted.

    1. Brilliant article which i think hits the proverbial nail on the proverbial head !!

  2. The retraction says more than had they left it there.
    Like all liars, the shadowy people behind the disgusting attacks in Paris overreached themselves and have spun themselves a web that they can no longer escape from without even more lies.

    A story reporting on conspiracy theorists who allege a link between Israeli intelligence and the Paris shootings should never have been published and we have therefore removed it from our site. The story was beneath our standards and we apologize for this basic lapse in judgement.

    ^ LOL

  5. What gutless worms they are at the IBT, although god knows what they were threatened with by the evil ones. It's actually hilarious that these goons actually think they are going to murder a bunch of people, lie about it and threaten those who don't comply and everything will return to the good old days for them . No chance whatsoever. It's over.
