France: Bataclan jihad mass murderer says massacre was ‘nothing personal,’ ‘we targeted the civilian population’
“We fought France, we attacked France, we targeted the civilian population. It was nothing personal against them. I know my statement may be shocking, but it is not to dig the knife deeper in the wound but to be sincere towards those who are suffering immeasurable grief.”
This reasoning is likely based on the command for revenge in Qur’an 5:45: “And we prescribed for them in it, Life for life, and eye for eye, and nose for nose, and ear for ear, and tooth for tooth, and retaliation for injuries. But whoever forgoes it, this will be expiation for him. Whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such people are wrongdoers.”

“We fought France, we attacked France, we targeted the civilian population. It was nothing personal against them,” he said. “I know my statement may be shocking, but it is not to dig the knife deeper in the wound but to be sincere towards those who are suffering immeasurable grief.”
