Paris Attacks: Rupert Murdoch Tweets "Western Civilization," Not "All Humanity" Was Target

The media mogul disagrees on the "Paris outrage" with President Obama who had called it a strike against "all of humanity."

President Barack Obama late Friday called the Paris attacks that killed more than 125 people "an attack on all of humanity."

But News Corp and 21st Century Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch shared a different take on Twitter.

"Paris outrage not an attack on all humanity, but an attack on us. ie, Western civilisation!" the media mogul tweeted in the European morning, late night U.S. time. He didn't comment any further.

"It's an attack not just on the people of France. But this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share," Obama had said during an address from the White House late Friday.
