7 charged with terrorism in Jewish attack

Paris - Seven alleged members of a French Islamist cell accused of carrying out an attack on a Jewish food shop and of planning further attacks have been charged with terrorism, French public radio reported on Friday.

The suspects, who were arrested at the weekend in raids in the Paris region, Strasbourg and Cannes, have been placed in preventive custody.

They are accused of attempted murder as part of a terrorist enterprise over the 19 September attack on a kosher food store in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles. One person was slightly injured when two youths tossed a grenade into the shop.

The seven, who are aged between 19 and 25, are also accused of conspiring to carry out further attacks, following the discovery of bomb-making ingredients at a garage near Paris used by the chief suspect, Jeremy Bailly.

Police found a list of French Jewish organisations at Bailly's home.

Echoes of Mohamed Merah

Some of the suspects had planned to travel to Syria to join jihadist groups fighting President Bashar Assad's regime, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said on Thursday.

The authorities have described the group as "extremely dangerous". One suspect was killed in a shootout with police in Strasbourg on Saturday.

The profile of the suspects has drawn comparisons with Mohamed Merah, the 23-year-old delinquent-turned-radical Islamist who killed seven people, including three Jewish children, in the south-western city of Toulouse in March.

Two of the seven suspects have previous convictions for theft or drugs. All, bar one, are recent converts to Islam.

    I'm planning to design a new food preparation manual inspired by Halal and Kosher, I'll call it Kosh-alal...after all its food that brings health and wellbeing to the body so that its soul can achieve dynamic equilibrium with El Shaddai/Allah...maybe Jews and Muslims might find peace if they have something in common.

      Knock yourself out...or at least until your pre-pubescent view of the world turns twelve years old.

    Crazy as attacking a Jewish Shop is Anti-Semitic whilst Muslims are from Semite descent and respect all religions and "people of the "book" :-& I have to question the article as the perpetrator is Jeremy Bailly which does not sound Muslim. It is also a known fact that the Zionists bombed synagogues in Paris whilst trying to convince Parisian Jews to move to Israel in the 70s - Makes you think .......

    Gladly these people were caught. Attacking civilians is a pathetic attempt at some kind of war!

    I wonder if these people are also working for "Jean Daniel Cohen of the French Hoche group" that has been twice reported by Benjamin Fulford: "These same French Freemasons, together with their allies in the P2 fascist lodge have been trying to stir up trouble between Muslims and Christians in the Middle-East and Europe. The release of an anti-Muslim video and cartoons in French newspapers featuring a naked Mohammed were released to coincide with mayhem by paid Muslim radical hoodlums. MI5 is now warning of a major false flag terrorist event in Europe, possible Marseille, aimed at provoking further strife." see here: and here:
