Stunner: Guy Named Mohammed Suspect in Toulouse Shootings

Just one of those misunderstood practitioners of Islam.

Mohammed Merah, the man believed to be the gunman on a scooter who killed seven people in south-western France, is a 24-year-old French citizen of Algerian extraction.

Before the shootings in Toulouse and Montauban, he was known to the French authorities because he had a criminal record for non-terrorist crimes.

Police surrounded him at a block of flats in Toulouse after the shootings, in which three French soldiers and a rabbi and three Jewish children were killed.

According to the French authorities, he said he had sought to avenge Palestinian children and to attack the French army because of its foreign interventions.

He had described himself as an Islamist warrior and member of the al-Qaeda network.

    hmmmm. Remember when our dem betters were telling us that going into Iraq was “creating new terrorists”? Now France is seeing this after they helped start the incursion into Libya. Hmmmmm. Does anyone think Nancy pelosi and her ilk will be blaming the French for this?
