That didn’t take long.
PARIS/MARSEILLE, France Sept 20 (Reuters) – Police detained a young man in southern France on Thursday on suspicion that he was planning a revenge attack on the staff of a satirical magazine which published cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad.
Anti-terrorism magistrates near the Mediterranean port city of Toulon questioned the 18-year-old after he threatened in a message on Facebook to cut the throats of anyone he could find at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a judicial source said.
The magazine’s publication of cartoons ridiculing Mohammad added to the anger of Muslims already outraged over an anti-Islam film produced in the United States and posted on the Internet.
The suspect had no police record but he was already known to security services, the source said, without giving further details.
Police in France are on high alert for attacks by Islamist militants. They were criticised for failing to stop an al Qaeda-inspired gunman shooting dead seven people in March, including three Jewish children, in the southern city of Toulouse.
Don’t arrest him, apologize to him.
The western world needs to present every moslem with a choice. Either be killed or be deported. We can no longer continue harboring our enemies within our own borders
“Detained” sounds a bit mild but maybe they will do the smart thing and lock him away for many years. I won’t repeat what I would do to the newly pubic terrorist.
If these brainwashed kooks stood up for their mothers like they do for some mythical desert pedophile their world would be a better place.
H/T NYer for the post.
Blame all over French media today, even on the French TV news.... blaming Charlie Hebdo for the “ offense to Muslims” and not the savages who murder, rape, and pillage.
They really believe this “storm” will pass in a few weeks, and the “ War of Civilizations” people on the right have been talking about, is just a myth.
FWIW Charlie Hebdo is the French equivalent of MAD magazine.
