, blames French niqab law, military intervention, grievances against "the Jews"
1556 GMT: More details emerging about the gunman from French prosecutor Francois Molins. He tells reporters that the US army sent the gunman back to France after he was arrested in Afghanistan. Afghan police detained Merah and then handed him over to the US army "who put him on the first plane headed to France," Mollins says.
I have a French brother-in-law. Candidly, the French admit the muslim population is a huge problem.
It should also be noted that more than a few Frenchmen own hunting rifles.
1.41pm: Police are now saying that explosives were found in Merah's brother's car.
Anyone else find it interesting that the 'prosecutor' is already making statements yet the authorities continue to DENY earlier reports that
Suspected killer of French children and soldiers arrested in raid - BFM TV via @Reuters - He was arrested in the building, but not clear if he surrendered or was overpowered
Further denial arrives from Kandahar police chief who suddenly refutes earlier claims that French suspected shooter is the same person who served time in his jail - @NBCNews
One would like to believe the following is not a dish of taqiyya served hot too:
It certainly appears the backlash at the MSM's NEO NAZI red herrings foisted upon the general public is being received loud and clear. Islamophilic misdirection is no longer accepted and those who persist in the denial of the threat of Islamic hegemony are in apparent retreat.
C`est la violence au travail.
Live Text 1144: David Loyn BBC News, Kabul has more on the Kandahar connection with French suspect: the director of Kandahar prison Gulam Farooq has told the BBC that Mohammed Merah escaped from the jail in 2008. He had been sentenced to three years in prison after being arrested carrying bomb-making equipment. He was among several hundred prisoners who escaped in a Taliban assault on the jail.
When is this killing, killing, killing going to end?
actually I thought this would start happening the day after Sarkozy signed the head scarf ban
It’s braying that on the English language Twitter..did its’ account get hacked?
What about Arabic twitter?
Tag and bag. No release.

~~ Their personal safety is becoming a priority.
When the Muslims are gone, gone, gone!
The French had half a million rifles back in 1940 for all the good that did them.
It ain’t 1940 and the Nazis weren’t trying to exterminate the French.
The islamist aren’t trying to exterminate the French, just the French Jews. We all know how hard the French will fight that.
I wonder how you say “Vichy” in arabic. The French will roll over, spread their legs, and hand over their Jews just like they did in the 40’s. And those hunting rifles will stay right where they are.
So the jihadists are only after the Jews? Were you especially busy on 9/11/01 and the years since? Im pretty sure a few of the three thousand + killed that day werent Jewish. How about the Christian churches being burned all over the world? My brother, a devout Catholic, lives in the Philippines and the jihadists there are quite content to go after Christians, Buddhists and Hindus, a group they call, infidels. Maybe you should check your facts and get back to me.
Another thing, the Vichy government went out of existence about 70 years ago. I only know and talk to about 8 or 9 French citizens regularly, admittedly a small sample but how many French citizens do you know personally and talk to regularly? Can you discuss their views based on first hand knowledge or are you relying on the filter of government and media? My contacts suggest there is a breaking point fast approaching. You might denigrate the French military or the French willingness to fight but do find time to look up Bonapart, Lafayette and Rochambeau; it isnt a genetic defect.
Bonaparte wasn’t French, he was Corsican. And I use the last hundred years of French history as my guide. The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. And prior French behavior towards Jews has been shockingly bad all the way back to the days of the Plague.
I sincerely hope the Frrench grow some balls. I really do. But if history is any guide, and it usually is, they won’t.
And those 100s of 1000s of guys behind Bonapart were what? Arapaho? Existential threat turned the Jews from history’s punching bags into the most serious military power on their continent. Don’t count out any people threatened with extinction.
