    In an editor’s note ( posted regarding the article, the publication states, “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.”

    Just unbelievable. This will be reposted forever and taken as an article of faith not only by the entire Muslim world but by anti-semites of all persuasions. This will live on like the myths of the Israelis cheering on the Brooklyn Bridge during 9/11 or that no Jews died in the Twin Towers because we all had advance knowledge of the attacks.

    911 is still being blamed on Israel and so is ISIS—- if the Arabs kill each other like in Lebanon the Jews are always at fault.Remember, the Jews had to pay for the kristalnacht damage!

    Instead of saying it’s not true, they say it’s “below our standard” which could mean it’s true but not well written.
