Well, I expected this, but preferred not to jump to any conclusions until the facts were in. The recent killings in France were not committed by a Neo-Nazi, but a Muslim terrorist. Considering the similarities between Nazism and Islam, you can be forgiven for thinking it was an adherent of the former who was behind the atrocities.
That takes the number of Muslim on Muslim attacks in secular and liberal "Western" nations to 5 in only 9 days, from the 11th to the 19th of March.
Hitler admired Islam [Hitler: Inside the Third Reich: Memoirs, pg. 115], and actual Muslim Nazis are a little-known historical fact. The Handzar Muslim Division was an SS branch of soldiers who were Bosnian Muslims, and who were responsible for many war crimes, especially against Serbs.
After WWII many Nazis fled the West to safer and more welcoming pastures in the Muslim world. Some even converted to Islam. Even today, many Neo-Nazis embrace Islam and retain their affections for Nazism and, naturally, their hatred of Jews.
From the BBC:
11 March: Off-duty sergeant shot dead in Toulouse while waiting for a man about a motorbike sale
15 March: Two paratroopers shot dead and a third injured while waiting at a cash machine in Montauban
19 March: Three children and a teacher shot dead, and a youth injured, at a Toulouse Jewish schoolFrom Forbes:
The Washington Post and France24 have reported that French police have raided a Toulouse home to arrest the suspect in the shooting deaths of three children and an adult at a Jewish school in Toulouse, France. The suspect, an Algerian-born French citizen, reportedly told the police that he committed the killings “to avenge Palestinian children” – ironic at a moment when Palestinians have been shooting rockets into Israel.
According to the Washington Post report,
"Gueant described the suspect as a French citizen, 24, who has spent time with Islamic groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan. News reports said he was of Algerian origin and had invoked the al-Qaeda terrorism network in his contacts with police in shouted conversations through the locked door of an apartment."
The rise of Islamic extremism has been a concern in Europe for some years, but so far, France has been spared the horrors of Islamic terrorism. Now it joins Holland, Spain, and England in confronting the dangers posed by radical Islam as it spreads through our communities in the West.
France24 reports that the suspect targeted French Muslim members of the military in his first shootings as “Arab soldiers are prized targets for groups like Al-Qaeda, which regards Muslims who fight for Western armies as traitors.” Having filmed the attacks as he committed them, the suspect has told French officials that he plans to place the films online. With the Internet now the most powerful recruiting tool of Al Qaeda and other jihadist groups, such films have become standard in the efforts to spread their influence and teachings, and are frequently watched by radicalizing Muslim youth in Europe and elsewhere in the West.
