French Muslim Mohammed Merah Dead after Standoff with Police
The media, of course, are busy reminding us that Merah's hatred for Jews had nothing to do with Islam, as if we're all still hopelessly ignorant of Muhammad's teachings:
Sahih al-Bukhari 2926--Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah's Messenger said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight against the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'"
I think we may have entered a new phase of Islamic terrorism here in the West. Over the past decade, jihadists have been remarkably stupid. They decide to slaughter the kufar, but in order to carry out their plan, they start walking around, asking where they can get some bombs. At that point, the FBI enters the picture, gives them some fake bombs, and puts them in jail.
After every failed terrorist attack in recent years, I always thought to myself, "Wow, I'm glad these idiots don't realize they can just get a gun and start shooting people." But now it's happened. A jihadist who keeps quiet, plans his attack, and carries it out before drawing attention to himself is much more dangerous than the typical "mob mentality" jihadist who finds strength in numbers.
Lots of young jihadists are looking at Merah's work right now and thinking, "So that's how it's done!"
FRANCE--The Al Qaeda fanatic who murdered seven people in south west France filmed all of his killings in their entirety, it has been confirmed.
Prosecutor Francois Molins had the grim task of watching Mohammed Merah's recordings.
In one, he is seen holding a gun to a victims head and saying: 'You killed my brothers, I kill you.'
It came as Jund al-Khilafah, an Al-Qaeda splinter group, claimed responsibility for Merah's crimes in an online statement.
In the end, he too died of a shot in the head, sustained in a vicious gun battle when police stormed his apartment following a 32-hour siege.
The Toulouse terrorist burst out of his flat's bathroom 'shooting insanely' at officers, before leaping to his death from a window.
In scenes reminiscent of a Hollywood film, Mohammad Merah, 23, unleashed round after round from automatic weapons after gas cannisters were thrown into his apartment and police stormed in.
Two officers were injured, including one who is still in a serious condition.
Interior Minister Claude Gueant said: 'We sent in special cameras to be able to see where he was but we could not find him. It was when we were able to locate him in the bathroom that he came out shooting madly at everybody.
'The police had never seen anything like this kind of violence and the RAID police had to protect themselves.
'Merah jumped out of the window and continued to shoot. He was found dead on the ground.'
Merah, who admits murdering seven people in the past week, had been holed up in his flat in the city of Toulouse with a variety of weapons since 3am yesterday.
Police decided to move in after negotiations broke down and he threatened to start killing officers. (Read more.)
