Allahu akbar! If Sarko doesn’t know, who does?
Such barbaric acts are against religion, and human values. Those who commit such crimes in the name of Islam are murderous infidels. Many French people of Arab origin are hoping that the killer does not belong to any Islamic group, because this would damage the image of Islam and the Arabs in France. Â Al Arabiya
Actually — you guessed it — it cautioned against “Islamophobia.” Yet again a Muslim group claims victim status after a jihad attack, instead of making any genuine effort to prevent the next one. This obviously gives the lie to their claims of moderation and their entire public posture, but no one seems to notice or care. “Extremist suspect upends French presidential race,” by Elaine Ganley for theÂ Associated Press, March 22 via JW
Jihad — you know. It’s a venerable Methodist concept. And the Qur’an? That’s just an oldÂ cookbook. For we all know that Muhammad Merah’s bloody massacre hadÂ nothing to do with Islam, right? “French shooting suspect was recruiting boys for jihad: report,” by Paul Koring for theÂ Globe and Mail, March 22
Forsane Alizza is a telling indication of how the stealth jihadists who promote the Muslim Brotherhood-coined concept of “Islamophobia” are working hand-in-glove with violent jihadists. “French killings refocus fears on ‘solo’ acts of terror,” by Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister forÂ CNN, March 21:
Muhammad MerahÂ called himself an “Islamic warrior,” but Mohammed Moussaoui asserts that he actually misunderstood the religion to which he had dedicated his life and for which he was fighting. So what is Mohammed Moussaoui doing in mosques in France to make sure that more Muslims there don’t misunderstand Islam in the same way that Muhammad Merah did? In fact, no Muslim community in any Western country has any such program or activity — nothing at all to fight in mosques and madrassas against this disturbingly pervasive understanding of Islam that they insist is in error.
One can only conclude that they don’t do anything serious against this understanding of Islam because they don’t really think it “contradicts Islam” at all. Western authorities should act accordingly. But they won’t, of course. They will take Mohammed Moussaoui’s words at face value and go away confirmed in their complacency.

President Nicolas Sarkozy has Â urged his countrymen not to stigmatize Muslims… because the real Islam is a religion of peace…..
Muhammad Merah’s murders had everything to do with Islam: he claimed affiliation with al-Qaeda and may have trained with the Taliban, both of which are explicitly and ostentatiously Muslim groups that justify all their actions by reference to the Qur’an and Sunnah. He claimed to be a mujahid, which is a warrior of jihad, which is an Islamic theological and legal concept. He killed Muslim soldiers who fought in the infidel military — something that only someone who considered one’s loyalty to the umma to trump all other loyalties would have done. So grounded is Merah’s massacre in Islam that it is virtually inconceivable that he would have carried it out had he not been a Muslim. And so Sarkozy is, like every other leader in the West, whistling in the dark, trying to pretend that there is no problem when there is a huge problem, and basing the future of his nation on the fantasy that the overwhelming majority of Muslims in France do not believe the same things Muhammad Merah believed.
Meanwhile, he says he is going to make habitually visiting jihadi websites a crime, which would land me in the bastille fairly quickly. I hope that French law enforcement will not just go on the visiting of such websites alone, but will combine that with other factors to make an intelligent assessment of Muslims who may be plotting jihad murder. In any case, as long as Sarkozy and the French establishment continues in denial about the nature, source and magnitude of the threat, monitoring websites may stop a few jihad attacks, but it will do nothing to stop the Islamization of French society by gradual capitulation to Sharia demands. The hijab ban was one step to prevent that, but Sarkozy is going to have to be prepared to be much more “implacable in defending our values” than he has been up to now, if he is really serious about doing so.
From “Toulouse siege: live” in theÂ Telegraph, March 22 (thanks to David):
12.44 President Nicolas Sarkozy warned that those who visit extemist [sic] websites will be severely punished:Quote France has shown its indignation and grit but has not allowed anger to take over.
The Muslim faith has nothing to do with the insane acts of this man. Before targeting Jewish children, he targeted other Muslims.
We must be implacable in defending our values. We will not allow this ideology to affect us.
From now on, any person who habitually consults websites that advocate terrorism or that call for hatred and violence will be punished by the law.
France will not tolerate forced recruitment or ideological indoctrination on its soil.
