While others have had many important things to say about Merah’s statements about “Palestine” and Afghanistan, I would like to note that the first thing Mehrah is quoted as protesting is the French “ban on the burqa.”
Here is an important and little known fact. According to Hillel Fradkin and Lewis Libby, the history of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is one fraught with ideological splits. Divisions arose “within the Brotherhood’s leadership. It even led to defections from the Brotherhood and the founding of alternative groups. One such group assassinated Sadat. As later interviews with the conspirators revealed, they undertook their plot not only or even primarily because of the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty which had been signed two years earlier. Rather, they considered work on women’s rights championed by Sadat’s wife, Jihan, an existential threat to true Muslim society.”
And so it is. And that may be why the Terrorist of Toulouse mentioned the abolition of the burqa first. Follow the burqa-wearing women: They will invariably lead you to the Islamist terrorist men in their family.
Merah is not a “deranged monster.” He is a political actor.
Halt Muslim immigration to the West.
