Second, I blog about both topics, so I don't really differentiate. More than that, in some places, Moroccan criminals are one of the major points in the Islam debate. Take a look at a recent article on my 'in other news' feed. Of the Amsterdam residents who say they've experienced culture clash, a plurality say 'youth harassment' was the main issue.
I also post about issues which are indirectly related (immigration restrictions or studies about immigrants for example), as long as it seems to me that Muslims are involved.
On the other hand, I don't post everything. There's too much news, usually. In the end it comes down to my interest in the article, number of articles already prepared to post, and how much time I have that day for posting or translating.
In the case of Merah, I strongly suspected it was a Muslim, but had enough doubts that I didn't post my suspicions.
The majority of Jews in America also intermarry and in 2-3 generations will not be Jewish.
I mention circumcision because it's also being targeted, also because of cruelty (to children).
I think the Orthodox Jewish community are the mainstay of any Jewish community. And there's a difference between being able to choose and having your religion officially deemed illegal. But, bottom line, we can argue till tomorrow. The only way to prove anything here is to take a look 40-50 years after these laws pass, and see who was right. I think it will be a sad outcome.
I'll just repeat what I said: you ban ritual slaughter, you ban circumcision, you'll destroy the Jewish community in Europe. Muslim will be (and have been) able to deal with it, Jews won't.
Other than that, I disagree that Jewish ritual slaughter is more cruel than any other mass-animal-murder, or breeding, or hunting.
I don't agree with you, though.
Same goes for religious slaughter. Muslims can and do accept slaughter after stunning. No Jewish orthodox authority accepts such slaughter. Banning halal slaughter as a way of attacking Muslims by proxy will have a limited effect on Muslims, but a devastating effect on the Jews.
I don't think that "Jews have 'somewhere to run to'" is a good reason to destroy any Jewish community. And that's not even taking into account that Israel is under a constant existential threat. Should Israel be wiped off the map, would that change your opinion on halal slaughter in Europe?
