Bomb materials found in French crackdown on terrorists
French anti-terror police on Wednesday found bomb-making materials and chemicals in a garage near Paris during their investigation into an anti-Jewish Islamist network suspected of being behind last month’s attack on a Jewish grocery store in Sarcelles.It really shouldn't be too surprising that criminals could convert to Islam if they already hold abhorrent POVs.
The raid was led by the police anti-terrorist units in several cities across France. In Strasbourg, the prime suspect, Jeremie Louis Sidney, 33, was shot dead after he opened fire on police officers.
During the course of the operation, 12 suspects were arrested. The investigation brought the police to a garage, property of one the suspects, located in Torcy where the findings included “a shotgun, a revolver, potassium, nitrate, sulphur and a pressure cooker,” said prosecutor Francois Molins.
“These are all products used to make so-called improvised explosives,” said the prosecutor. [...]
Four of the men arrested Saturday had written wills and one was carrying gun – all signs, according to specialists, of the intention to die as a shahid (martyr) after perpetrating terrorist attacks.
“We are clearly confronted with an extremely dangerous terrorist network,” said the prosecutor. [...]
During the course of operation in Strasbourg, Islamist literature and a list of Jewish associations in the Paris area were discovered by investigators.
Sidney had been the leader of the group and his DNA, found on the grenade thrown at Sarcelles, led police to him.
He was known to police since serving time for drug-trafficking in 2008. After that he converted to Islam, and visited North Africa.
The president may have refused to acknowledge Islam's monstrous beliefs as written in the Koran, but there was someone from the Jewish community who was brave to make something clear:
Another Jewish leader, Richard Pasquier, compared Islamism to Nazism, as the meeting at the Elysee Palace drew to a close.Spot on. I'm glad someone here's got the guts and the sense to tell things like they are about the Religion of Rape.
“Islamism is a monstrous ideology, an ideology of hatred, that one can only compare to Nazi ideology. To be compassionate with radical Islam means to be compassionate with Nazism,” Pasquier told journalists.
