The article is entitled "Paris bombings - fingerprints of the Zionists are found again."
"In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris it has been confirmed once again that the French Jews were on the lookout for the occurrence of the tragedy, as happened in the September 11 incident 14 years ago as Jews working in the Twin Towers did not go to work that day," the Arabic language version of the news site said.
But they have "proof " - from the Times of Israel, which reported:
Just Friday morning, security officials in France’s Jewish community were informed of the very real possibility of an impending large terrorist attack in the country, according to Jonathan-Simon Sellem, a freelance journalist and a representative of French citizens in Israel.According to this story, French intelligence - assuming that Jews would be the likely targets of any attack - relayed some chatter they heard about something brewing, so the Jews should be careful during the Sabbath.
The Jewish community, already on high alert ahead of several planned high-profile events Sunday, had been told that after several minor attacks in France this month, a large terrorist event was thought to be on the horizon.
Iran is using that information to claim that Jews had specific knowledge of the attacks in order to stay away, and implying that they heard this from the Mossad.
The article goes on to bring up bizarre "truther" theories about Jews and 9/11.
Just the usual antisemitism from official Iranian media.
The TOI story does bring up the question of what exactly the French intelligence services knew ahead of the attacks - and if any of it was actionable.
This is not the only Muslim site that is blaming the Jews for Paris. A Toronto-based "intellectual Muslim" website that is seemingly Iranian as well also claims that this was a false flag operation by the Mossad, but they claim that ISIS and the Zionists work together, so the logic is a little muddled there.
