French shooting suspect Mohamed Merah arrested after Toulouse siege
National Post ^ | 3-21-2012 | National Post Wire Services

Posted on 03/21/2012 6:43:12 AM PDT by Colonel Kangaroo

A gunman suspected of killing seven people in the name of al-Qaeda, including three children at a Jewish school, has been arrested by police after an hours-long siege in southwestern France.

About 300 police, some in bullet-proof body armor, had earlier cordoned off an area surrounding a four-storey house in a leafy suburb of the city of Toulouse where the 24-year-old Muslim man, identified as Mohamed Merah, was holed up on the ground floor.

Merah had been arrested for bomb making in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar in 2007 but escaped months later in a Taliban prison break, the director of prisons in Kandahar said.

Very interesting, considering that early reports suggested the killer might be from a right-wing Nazi-sympathizing group...

Could the media have been biased? Ya think?

Fantastic news!

Wonder how they identified him?

I know we aren’t privy to that info, as that would help the terrorists to know that.

The article at “The Times of Israel” (http://www.timesofisrael.com) quotes Israeli journalists as surmising that the French police may have spread misinformation about neo-Nazis deliberately as a strategy to induce the real murderer to drop his guard.

I wonder if Toulouse was chosen as a place for attack for symbolic reasons in the same way that it is speculated that 9/11 was chosen as a date for the anniversary of the Battle of Vienna.

Every bombing or shooting, the media speculates that it could be a right wing nut, but they never speculate that he might be islamic.

This, even though the ratio of islamic nut to right wing nut in these stories is running about 4,687 to 2.

Yes, but too bad there is no such animal as a “right-wing Nazi”; as the whole concept is rather leftist, perhaps a bit right of communism, but leftist nonetheless. So much for accurate journalism....

Even my supervisor, a tenured professor of biology,and an avowed liberal/statist thought nazism was a “right-wing” ideology. Duh, oh.

Nazi-sympathizing group

Well, that part is correct. There is no larger or more outspoken group in support of Nazism than the Islamic Ummah (أمة). Some people tend to let the brown complexion of the typical faithful and Semitic linguistics of their unholy book fool them. All they lack are the well tailored uniforms and extravagant, disciplined parades.

President with gonads:

“In the interest of safety, it will henceforth be the practice of our government law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, CIA, ATF, and TSA, to scrutinize those of the Islamic religion in a discriminate manner, without apology, in all phases of investigation and crime prevention activities.

“We will move forward in this manner until the leaders of the cultural/religious jihad movement begin to denounce violence, until said leaders are taking steps we demand be taken to police their own, and until we see evidence that these steps are having an effect on practitioners of the Islamic religion.”

Hey, without the death penalty there, he might still have a chance in his head to keep spreading around his spew of irresponsibility and islamic hate. Anybody else would be lobotomized as mentaly ill in the PC French system of health care, but him, he has a political reason, so that makes him part of the state’s biscuit parasitic system.

Castrate him, in public, let him heal and then put him in a French prison. These Mohammeds live and breathe “genitalia”. You would only have to do this a few times and all of this “crap” would come to a screeching halt.

Muslim.

Initial reports from the heavily-biased, consistantly-evil news media, was a right wing Nazi.

THE PRESS IS EVIL, AND PROUD OF IT.

All he needs is sometime and then, once the majority or empowered, he turns into a wolf again who will murder at will... and so it goes.

It is so obvious that Islam is an evil agenda. The press is made of a bunch of communist sycophants who never disliked to see a savage’s revolution victorious. They are thugs. Give them the means, and they are thugs, criminals, wanting the 5 min fame in the streets, bleeding always for their minions so long they are in the minority, encouraging them when they are tyrant in the majority.

The press is all the example of what happens when you let them have power.

Interior Minister Gueant said Merah, who had been under surveillance since the attack on the first of the soldiers last week, wanted revenge “for the Palestinian children and he also wanted to attack the French army because of its foreign intervention.”

So "under surveillance", he was permitted to walk into a Jewish school without so much as a patdown.

The political damage would of been huge if it had been a right winger, the political fallout from it being a Muslim will be negligible. The discussion would of been endless with an attack from someone from the far right, but now will be fading to a low murmur. I would say you have to love France, but unfortunately the same thing would happen here to a only slightly lesser degree.

Great video, it is so logical.

I don’t care what they say about all this not being news, it is good to hear the laughing evil cackle of bragging self congratulation on being the 1%ers who absolutely love crapping on the country and their readers.

This is typical Marxist gay pathetic attitude of thugs who once they have the upper hand, they are no longer the bleeding hearts, they rape.

The end of the tape is especially creepy. When they're actually talking to a live conservative - their 'light oh so superior' voices become filled with hatred and contempt. I didn't even know people could hate that much... Thanks for taking the time to watch it.
