Somehow these fellows got the crazy notion that Islam commanded them to wage violent war against non-Muslims. Now how could they possibly have gotten that idea? Could they perhaps have gotten hold of some Islamophobic literature? “Italian police raid suspected Islamic group,” from AFP, with thanks to Twostellas:
MILAN – Italian police in Milan on Monday raided apartments and companies owned by a group of Algerians suspected of belonging to The Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), an extremist Islamic group, the police said….
The raids in Milan came on the day French police detained seven people in the Paris region and in nearby Normandy, in a crackdown on suspected GSPC members.
GSPC, Algeria’s main armed Islamic group, is suspected of being linked to Al Qaeda.
