A question was raised by colleagues of mine which I have to agree, it needs at least some kind of response by the media:
“Why haven’t we heard praise from any of the hostages in the kosher market over the supposed actions of Bathily?”
After having heard a lengthy interview & he wasn’t mentioned. In fact the Jewish hostage said he was the first one down the stairs & others followed him.
This is not to say that Bathily didn’t act heroically, I’m just a bit confused as to the lack of corroboration on his supposed heroic act that’s being bandied about by the (Narrative driven) media, which by-the-way has a vested interested in finding anything pro-Muslim to report about in the wake of all this damaging PR due to Muslim jihadi terrorists. If he acted heroically, than fine, well done.

This is the Muslim man who has been hailed a hero after he hid shoppers in the freezer of the Jewish grocery store after an Islamic gunman raided the deli where he worked.
Lassana Bathily, 24, originally from Mali in west Africa, guided terrified customers to safety in a supermarket chiller at the Hyper Cacher supermarket in Porte de Vincennes, Paris, yesterday.
He has since been praised for his quick-thinking and bravery after 15 hostages escaped the ordeal, in which gunman Amedy Coulibaly was killed as he attempted to flee.

Four of the hostages were killed before police stormed the building and ended the terror.
Mr Bathily, who reportedly led six people to safety, told BFMTV: ‘When they ran down, I opened the door [of the freezer].
‘There are several people who came to me. I turned off the light, I turned off the freezer. When I turned off the cold, I put them [hostages] in, I closed the door, I told them to stay calm.’
