French mother on trial for son Jihads T-shirt
WaPo ^ | March 23 | Edward Cody

Posted on 03/24/2013 1:53:51 AM PDT by Daffynition

SORGUES, France — A T-shirt worn by a 3-year-old nursery-schooler named Jihad has led to an unusual and politically charged criminal trial here that tests the limits of free speech — and common sense — in a France increasingly ill at ease with its growing Muslim population.

“I am a bomb,” the shirt said on the front. The back read, “Jihad Born Sept. 11.”

You can regulate speech but I doubt you'll ever be able to regulate common sense. She named the kid 'Jihad'. She put him in a tee shirt that said he was a bomb. She doesn't expect people to put two and two together?

My daughter was born September 13. It was a great relief when 11 came and went.

That 13th was a Sunday. In Germany babies born on Sunday are known as a "Sunday Child" (Sonntagskind) in relation to Christianity. Which is very nice. :)

Whew!

And unless I missed something, they don’t sell shirts like that at Bon Marche or Old Navy. She had to have had it custom printed, which pretty much underscores her intentions of provoking a whirlwind.

She got what she wanted using her 3 y/o as a pawn.

Meanwhile in Ohio....

France should grow a pair, deport the mommy, the baby and, as near as they can determine, the baby daddy and then holler “proche!”

According to the story the "I am a bomb" part was already on the shirt; they just added the name and date. But again, what kind of person names their kid 'Jihad' and then expects us to believe she isn't making a political statement?

I read the article....this seems more like Mom is an airhead.... Who thought it would be cute...

It was rather stupid thing to do....and I guess the French are sending a message...

I know it’s almost against the rules to read the entire article before commenting..../ S

"Fermer la frontière!"

Europe defeated the muslim invasion, but now let them walk in. "Its a death trap, it's a suicide rap"

Europe needs to bring back the Crusades and the Inquisition.

If the mother is a member of the worldwide death cult, she needs to go to jail.

Think of what would happen in this country is some kid showed up at school wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Hitler and a reference to the death camps in a humorous light. We were not allowed to wear t-shirts when I went to school, but nobody would have been permitted to wear a shirt with a political message on it.

Europe should close the international court. Let each nation declare emergency measures and deport EVERY muslim back the the third world hell hole they came from. Close the borders to any muslim, arab or middle-east immigration forever.

Europe won’t.

Uncle bought a shirt with “I am a [the] bomb” on the front and had the kid’s name and D.O.B. printed on the back. Mom is guilty of no crime but has no common sense. Methinks the French should go about prosecuting the real Muslim fascists who are calling for Jihad in Europe rather than this apolitical woman who thought it would be cute to dress her son in this shirt....

We won't either. We need to lead by example, but have lost the will to stand up to the traitors in our country, the enemies within, and those who want to see a 'fundamental transformation' of this great country.

“Think of what would happen in this country is some kid showed up at school wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Hitler and a reference to the death camps in a humorous light.”

The reaction would probably depend on whether it also referenced Bush or Barry. Honestly I no longer know what a normal reaction would be though I know what it should be.

Actually, France is getting a lot tougher with Muslims than we are. They are starting to realize what a problem they have. The extreme right is growing in influence there.

I like to read the complete article before commenting also, and I still disagree with your assertion that she is an airhead. It is feigned ignorance.

Naming your child “Jihad” when he is born on September 11th is a dead giveaway.

I wonder if that's how she's dressing now that she's going to trial. Did she dress differently before? Either way, I still think that anyone who names their kid "Jihad" has an agenda, especially if said child was born on Sept. 11th.

Well, people do name their kids all sort of stupid names for all sorts of dumb reasons...

As for her dress, I would think if she was an Islamic ideologue, she would relish in the flaunting of her convictions by dressing as a Muslim ...

I agree with you. Wonder if she has other *Jihads* or *Fatwahs*?
