#CharlieHebdo attacks: Imam describes Cherif Kouachi as a ‘very good guy who was always smiling’

One of the two gunmen who massacred 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo offices before going on a three-day rampage through Paris has been described as a “very good guy”.

Mehdi Bouzid, an imam in Aubervilliers, Paris, said he had known Cherif Kouachi before he became even more radicalised about three years ago.

    Maybe something was lost when they translated ‘…who was always smiling’ and what they really meant was ‘always leering’.

    • It’s like neighbors always remark about serial killers, “Oh he was a quiet fellow and very easy to get along with”

    And Pat Garrett said Billy The Kid was always laughing.

    Especially when he killed somebody.

    But smiling Jihadi’s MUST be good guys! Too bad none of the people around them are smiling.

    Short version:

    Lovely young fella. Very fond of his da. Do you know, I tried to talk him out of going to Syria that one time. I couldn’t believe anybody in his right mind would do that, so I couldn’t. Much less kill a bunch of journalists.

    Just kidding. Charlie were asking for it. Insult the prophet enough and sooner or later you’ll be next. Allahu akbar.
