French jihadist’s brother charged; mother married to father of convicted terrorist

In other words his step-brother was also a jihadist and now his brother has been charged making jihad a family affair.

France‘s Jihadist Shooter Was No Lone Wolf: Mohamed Merah was practically a prince in violent extremist circles,” by Jytte Klausen in the Wall Street Journal via Mainstream media lies again: Toulouse jihad murderer was no “lone … | Presstitution™.

Mohamed Merah, the Frenchman who assassinated three French paratroopers of North African background and then launched a terrible attack on a Jewish school—murdering a teacher, his two young sons and an 8-year-old girl—claimed to act for al Qaeda. Skeptics have dismissed the claim, saying al Qaeda barely functions anymore. But Merah was no “lone wolf” and did indeed bear the imprint of al Qaeda.

Young and alienated, Merah had served two years in a juvenile prison for robbery. Was he rejected by French society because of his Algerian background? “He snapped,” say friends. After prison, he was completely cut off from reality, said his lawyer.

In fact, Merah was practically a prince in French jihadist circles. His mother is married to the father of Sabri Essid, a leading member of the Toulouse radical milieu who was captured in Syria in 2006. Essid and another Frenchman were running an al Qaeda safe house in Syria for fighters going to Iraq. In a 2009 trial that came to be known in the press as “Brothers for Iraq,” they and six others were convicted in France of conspiracy for terrorist purposes. Essid was sentenced in 2009 to five years imprisonment.

Family contacts could have been instrumental in setting up Merah’s jihadist contacts and facilitating his travels to South Asia. Le Monde reports that the Pakistani Taliban and the Uzbek Islamic Movement trained Merah to become a killer. In 2010, he was captured in Afghanistan (reportedly by Afghan forces) and handed over to the French government, yet French media report that he was able to return to Northwest Pakistan in 2011.

The French police have confirmed that Merah was under periodic surveillance in recent months. That he slipped through and was able to carry out his attacks will become a source of criticism and self-recrimination on the part of the generally efficient French police. It certainly suggests that he had help from a network.

In executing his attacks, Merah did everything by the jihadist textbook. He made sure he would die a martyr’s death that would be witnessed on television screens around the world. He murdered with a video camera strapped to his body, making him star and director of his own epic. He told journalists his videos would soon be uploaded. In the attack at the Jewish school Monday morning, Merah held a little girl by her hair while he paused to reload his gun. He then shot her. In a recording found in his apartment he tells another victim, a soldier: “You kill my brothers, I kill you.” This is theater.

The Internet was his friend. “I have changed my life . . . on video,” said one of his last tweets (in French) during the siege. His account ID featured a black knight on a horse holding high the flag of jihad.

He signed that last tweet “Mohamed Merah-Forsane Alizza.” Forsane Alizza, or “Knights of Glory,” is a France-based jihadist media organization that was banned in January by French authorities after they discovered members preparing to train in armed combat. The ban made little difference, as content was uploaded to new sites. A website using the Forsane Alizza alias is still active—and registered with a domain name registrar and Web hosting company based in the state of Washington…

Merah was not only not alone, he tried to radicalize others, via Mohamed Merah – Man of the West

French authorities knew that he was dangerous and still failed to apprehend him. They had been informed that at least on one occasion, Merah sought to radicalize a 15-year-old Muslim boy. And yet, he was allowed to remain at large.

 As the mother of the teenager said, “All these people had to die before they finally arrest Mohamed Merah. What an enormous waste. The police knew this individual was dangerous and radicalized. I complained to the police twice about Mohamed Merah and tried to follow up several times.”

via France files charges against gunman’s brother

PARIS—A French judge filed preliminary murder and terrorism charges Sunday against the brother of a gunman who killed Jewish schoolchildren and paratroopers in attacks that stunned the country.

Investigators looking into France’s worst terror attacks in years believe Mohamed Merah’s brother helped prepare the killings and are trying to find out how deeply he was involved. They are also investigating whether they were linked to an international network or worked on their own.

Authorities suspect Abdelkader had a role in acquiring his younger brother’s arsenal and financing his trips to Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Middle East. Mohamed Merah claimed allegiance to al-Qaida and told police he traveled to Afghanistan and Pakistan for training.

Abdelkader was questioned several years ago about alleged links to a network sending Toulouse-area youths to Iraq, but no action was brought against him at the time.

The brother’s girlfriend, Yamina Mesbah, was held, then released early Sunday without being charged. The Merah brothers’ mother was released Friday night.

Abdelkader Merah took five or six long trips to Egypt, ostensibly to study Arabic literature, and his girlfriend joined him on two or three, the lawyer said.

During questioning by police, the lawyer said, Mesbah learned that Merah had had other motivations for his trip to Egypt and “a life that led him toward an extremely intense … fundamentalism.”

“The question to ask today is if Mohamed was the only one that was indoctrinated. Was it just him or are there others?” Debuisson asked.

Reports suggest there are others like Merah in France and they are likely better trained: Dozens of Frenchmen train with Taliban

Pakistani intelligence officials say the French jihadists operate under the name Jihad-e-Islam and are trained to use explosives and other weapons at camps near the town of Miran Shah and the Datta Khel area, the Associated Press reports. They are led by a French commander who goes by the name Abu Tarek. Many of them have dual citizenship with France and North African countries. The officials added that five jihadists have returned to France to find new recruits.

  1. There is no excuse for this act.

    • Yes, there is……..islam.

      It’s time we have islam declassified as a religion ,ban it’s practice, raze every barracks (mosques) built in non-muslim lands and remove every practitioner of this savage ideology to the middle east and wall them in so they can never get out again. The other alternative is against our values.

      Short of civil war , this is the only thing that will stop the invasion of islam. The alternative is forced conversion for you & yours. History proves that islam destroys any culture it invades and supplants it with islam & sharia.

    • Islam is all the excuse they need today. They know they be getting by with many killings before they reach their virgins in paradise. We can see what is going on in Europe (Eurabia now)…yet we have leaders that are so evil that they want stop flow of them to America. How much blood must be shed before people act to save ourselves from those goats. We have numerous enemies within our borders. One is our own government….one is Islam…one is Commies …etc. Goes on! We set and not speak out or fight back…we lose just like Jews/Christians and even Russians did in WW2.
