In the aftermath of a Tunisian Muslim migrant beheading an elderly Christian woman and slaughtering two other Christians in a Church in Nice, the Associated Press ran an article claiming the French “incite anger” in Muslims because of their “brutal colonial past” and their president’s insensitivity towards their faith.

AP Explains: Why France incites such anger in Muslim world
By ANGELA CHARLTON
PARIS (AP) — Many countries, especially in the democratic West, champion freedom of expression and allow publications that lampoon Islam’s prophet. So why is France singled out for protests and calls for boycotts across the Muslim world, and so often the target of deadly violence from the extremist margins?
The AP and writer Angela Charlton followed the story up with this article:
As a reminder, the AP last year responded to the news of a Mormon family being brutally massacred by narco-terrorists in Mexico by writing an article claiming the Mormon Church was being “forced to confront its history of polygamy.”
In contrast, after Ahmaud Arbery was killed earlier this year and his criminal past and history of threatening police was exposed, the AP ran an article claiming Arbery — who was on probation for stealing a 65-inch TV at the time of his death — had “enrolled in a Georgia college” and was “preparing to become an electrician” after putting his troubles “largely behind him.”
Christians and Westerners must be browbeat over ancient history but “people of oppression” mustn’t be held accountable for the crimes they committed yesterday!
