Just goes to show that the women are just as fanatical as the men.
POLICE in France have arrested three women in connection with an ISIS plot to blow up a mayor from Marie Le Pen’s Front National (FN) party.
Marc Etienne Lansade was targeted by a trio of Jihadi women
The trio are suspected of being involved in the planning of a number of terror attacks including an alleged conspiracy to kill French politician Marc Etienne Lansade in order to strike a blow to “the heart the French government.”
Mr Lansade, who is close to Ms Le Pen and is the mayor of Cogolin which straddles Provence and the Cote D’Azur, had previously advocated a burkini ban on the beaches in his consituency.

Cops swooped on the women at an apartment on September 8 near Boussy-Saint-Antoine, Essonne outside Paris after tracing their movements by phone.
According to reports the women, who were using the messaging app Telegram, were also responsible for an attempt to blow up a car outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on September 7.
It is alleged they were colluding to attack a Jewish synagogue using home made motolov cocktails as well as attack police officers with knives.
Mrs Len Pen’s party is the focus of terror groups in France
Sarah Hervouët, 23, Ines Madani, 19, and Amel Sakaou, 39, failed to action any of their plots which are believed to have been masterminded by French ISIS operative Rashid Kassim known as Abu Kassim.
All three women had links to Larossi Abballa, a Frenchman previously convicted of taking part in a jihadi recruitment, who brutally murdered a police officer and his partner in front of their child and posted it on Facebook Live in July.
They also had links to Adel Kermiche, one of the two murderers who slit the throat of priest Father Jacques Hamel in the church of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in July.
The women had stolen Madani’s father’s car, a Peugeot 607, and left it to detonate with six gas cylinders and two gas cans, close to the Notre-Dame de Paris Catholic church but were rumbled by police.
The trio who are said to have abandoned their plan apparently fled to an apartment safe house on the outskirts of Paris.
They were tipped off that police were hunting for them by former security guard Sakaou’s 16-year-old daughter.
They were pictured trying to flee their apartment dressed in burkas before police finally swooped.
