The (mixed up) messages of Toulouse

Necrothreading much?

Article content

Article copy

Clifford D. May over at National Review Online has a perfectly valid column "The Messages of Toulouse" on what Merah, and other freelance Jihadis like him, mean for the larger Muslim population, but unfortunately he starts it with a rather irritating mistake:
This part of the story has received too little attention: Merah, the 23-year-old son of Algerian immigrants, began his killing spree by gunning down French paratrooper Sergeant Imad Ibn Ziaten and, four days later, two more uniformed paratroopers, Corporal Abel Chennouf and Private Mohamed Legouad. All three were Muslims.

Wrong.

Corporal Abel Chennouf was French of Kabyle and Alsatian descent, born in Martigues (south of France) 1986 and moved with his family to Illzach (a town near Mulhouse, Alsace) in 1987. And he was a Catholic.

There is also another "part of the story that has received too little attention": Loïc Liber, the third paratrooper shot in the throat and the spine by Mohamed Merah in Montauban is originally from the Guadeloupe islands... And a Catholic too.

In the end, Merah attacked and killed Jews, Muslims and Christians. How the good folks at the NRO, of all the places, could miss that?

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.
