The brutal murder of a school teacher by a jihadist has rocked France. Now the girl who claimed her teacher Samuel Paty gave an Islamophobic history lesson has admitted she made the whole thing up.
The 13-year-old schoolgirl admitted she lied when she accused him of being anti-Muslim when he showed students cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a class about free speech.
Samuel Paty was beheaded by an extremist in October. And, his body was left in the middle of the street.
This case should serve as a warning to how deadly an online mob can become.
It is reminiscent of Jussie Smollett’s fake assault allegation in Chicago.
Smollett’s story was quickly picked up by national media and politicians without any proof.
This French teacher paid with his life for his student’s fake allegations that were given a platform on social media.

Teacher Was Beheaded By Jihadist 10 Days After Claims Made
Paty’s death shocked France last fall.
The history teacher was brutally murdered just 10 days after he was accused of insulting Islam by the girl.
The unidentified student claimed Paty asked Muslim students to leave the class before he showed Charlie Hebdo’s naked Muhammed cartoon.
Now, we know that Paty was murdered by an extremist because of a lie.
Her father filed a legal claim against the teacher and began a social media campaign over the incident based on her accusations and also posted a video about it online.

The girl has a history of behavioral problems and her story didn’t add up. But, that didn’t cause concern for those who were outraged about the claims she made.
Apparently she said: “I didn’t see the cartoons, it was a girl in my class who showed me them.”
The lies were enough to whip up a hate crowd against the teacher.
The outrage mob of extremists issued death threats against Paty and one of them made good on it.
Jihadist Aboulakh Anzorov Celebrated As Hero
Abdoulakh Anzorov, 18, paid two students to help him identify Paty.
The jihadist beheaded the teacher with a long knife, leaving the body in the street in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, west of Paris.
He then tweeted a picture of Paty’s head.
Police quickly tracked down the Chechen jihadist and shot him dead shortly after the murder of Paty.
Anzorov’s body was returned to his homeland where he was celebrated as a hero.

The girl’s lawyer, Mbeko Tabula admitted the student wasn’t even in class when she claimed the incident happened.
She made it up because she didn’t want her father to know she had been suspended for skipping class.
“She lied because she felt trapped in a spiral because her classmates had asked her to be a spokesperson,” Mr. Tabula said.
The 13-year-old girl has been charged with slander and her father is facing charges of being “complicit in a terrorist killing.”
