Hoping that al-Qaeda has dispatched operatives. But…but…aren’t Muslims in Western countries supposed to abide by the law of the land, and only greasy Islamophobes think otherwise?
“Jihadists “˜declare war” on France over veil ban,” from AFP, April 14 (thanks to Block Ness):
NICOSIA: Members of Arabic language jihadist forums have called for war on France over its ban on niqabs, a US-based web service said on Wednesday. The draconian new law, the first to be enforced in Europe, went into effect on Monday. Wearing the niqab or burka, a head-to-toe body covering, is now banned in the street, public gardens, shops and government buildings. In messages on a number of threads, “contributors posted calls to punish France for what was perceived as an anti-Islamic law,” including calls for al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb to “carry out operations to “˜deter” France.” One exchange on Monday called for “members to declare war against France,” while another expressed hope that “al Qaeda has dispatched operatives to France to attack the country.”
