Sorry to shout, but people need to hear this:
Both of the brothers, who were born in Paris to Algerian immigrants, were already known to French counter-terrorism authorities according to France 24.
Cherif was handed 18 months in prison back in 2008 for trying to fly to Iraq to join terrorist organizations there and take part in the fighting.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve on Thursday revealed that Cherif at the time was described by fellow aspiring jihadists as “violently anti-Semitic.” He added that Said, an unemployed resident of Reims, was known largely because of his involvement in his younger brother’s activities.
Cherif, a former pizza deliveryman, appeared in a 2005 French TV documentary on Islamic extremism.
Standard disclaimer: not all Islamic pizza deliverymen are terrorists, but some Islamic pizza deliverymen who are “violently anti-Semitic” are likely to become terrorists.
Do you want to stop terrorists before they attack? Look for the violent anti-semitism. Even if you don’t care about your Jews, France (those that remain), they are your canaries in the mineshaft. All that noise about les juifs being descendée from singes et porcs? That’s French for “you’re next”.
Me, je ne suis pas Charlie.
Can I get a do-over? I don’t want to be that skanky hag.
Save yourselves, France (and Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, England, stop me when I reach Greenland). As the old saying goes: first they come for the Jews. You’re supposed to take that as a warning, not a tiding of great joy.
