A savvy investigator, hearing that, would start to investigate what they were praying and how those prayers may have affected their decision to murder Infidels in Paris. That line of inquiry could shed a great deal of light on jihadis’ motives, goals and future plans.

Two brothers suspected of being involved in the Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people began to change roughly six months before when they “stopped drinking and started praying,” their brother told Belgian broadcasting network RTBF.
Mohamed Abdeslam told RTBF he saw his brothers Salah, a fugitive, and Brahim, a suicide bomber who officials said died on Boulevard Voltaire, two or three days before they left. He said the pair told their mother they were going skiing sometime before the attacks in Paris last Friday.
“I didn’t notice anything. There were no goodbyes,” said Mohamed Abdeslam.
He said his brothers “started changing maybe six months ago.”
“[They] stopped drinking and started praying, but nothing to suggest they had been radicalized,” Abdeslam said. “I believe they were manipulated more than radicalized.”

Two of Salah’s friends, who spoke to ABC News on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation, said Salah called them Tuesday evening and said he was in hiding in the Brussels area but was desperately trying to get to ISIS territory in Syria….
