French prisoner escapes after dynamiting through doors
The Telegraph ^ | 3:13PM BST 13 Apr 2013 | Harriet Alexander

Redoine Faid, who published a book on life as a criminal in France's tough city suburbs, took four prison guards hostage inside Sequedin prison near Lille on Saturday morning. He then set off a series of explosions, blowing open five prison doors in turn, allegedly using explosives that his wife had smuggled into prison that morning wrapped in handkerchiefs.

...

Born in the socially-deprived Paris satellite town of Creil – a municipality known for its gritty housing estates and high unemployment – Faid grew up as a juvenile delinquent before graduating to armed robbery. He spent eight years evading the law, staging a series of brazen robberies and taking hostages.

In 1995 he took the manager of BNP bank in Creil hostage, along with his wife and four children. Two years later he held a jeweller and his wife at gunpoint while he raided their store. In October 1998 he took a Swiss policeman hostage, before fleeing to Germany.

In 1998 he was sentenced to 30 years for the catalogue of at least eight armed robberies and bank thefts, but in 2009 he was released on parole.

MUSLIM POPULATION TIMELINE

  1. As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.
  2. At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

  3. From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

  4. When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.

  5. After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues.

  6. At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare.

  7. From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels.

  8. After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in Bangladesh — Muslim 83%, Egypt — Muslim 90%, Gaza — Muslim 98.7%, Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%, Iran — Muslim 98%, Iraq — Muslim 97%, Jordan — Muslim 92%

  9. 100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan — Muslim 100%, Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%, Somalia — Muslim 100%, Yemen ---Muslim 100%.

France needs to ban handkerchiefs! If handkerchiefs were banned, explosives could not be smuggled into prisons!

Oh, wait. Don’t they need the white ones as surrender flags? *SMIRK*

A fascinating analysis, but it’s proselytize to, not proselytize from.

TFP and double chains.

Before the French Revolution and again after 1810, the prisoners were also branded on the shoulder with a hot iron, using the letters TF (travaux forcés, hard labour) and TFP (travaux forcés à perpétuité, hard labour for life).

I’m pretty sure it’s from Les Miserables. But I couldn’t swear to it.

I just thought of of Jean Valjean’s prison breaks when I read this story. It’s a Paris tradition, I guess. :-)

In one hand a white one, in the other a rainbow one

Franch has surrendered to homosexualism and Godlessness.

It does look like he is a Muzzie.

From the wiki on him.


Rédoine Faïd (born 10 May 1972) is a French-Algerian gangster who was influenced by American crime films such as Scarface and Heat.[2] He has been considered France's most wanted criminal.[3] After his first robbery he fled to Israel and learned Hebrew to avoid prosecution. He also learned military tactics from an Israeli military leader.[4]

In the mid 1990s, he and Jean-Claude Bisel led a criminal gang that was responsible for armed robbery, jewel theft, and extortion in the Paris area. In 1997, seven of eight accused were tried for said charges (the eighth having fled to Algeria).[5] He was sentenced to 30 years, but was released on parole after ten years in jail.[4][6] In 2009 he wrote a book about growing up in a life of crime in Paris' banlieues,[2] and claimed to have given up a life of crime.[7] However, he was the suspected mastermind of an armed robbery that claimed the life of a policewoman in 2010, and subsequently was caught after he broke parole conditions in 2011, which returned him to prison for eight years.[6][8]

On the morning of 13 April 2013, he broke out of the Sequedin prison, using explosives to blast through five prison doors, holding four prison wardens hostage during the escape and employing the use of a getaway car.[3] He then burned the car in Lille and left in another vehicle. The same day, a Europe-wide warrant was issued.[9]

Be on the lookout for this guy!

It is a guarantee there will be t-shirts glorifying him and a movie of the week made.
