The latest scam… Mother sues French government for £80,000 after son joins Islamic State

A mother is suing the French government for €110,000 (£80,500; $120,000) for not preventing her son travelling to join Islamic State (Isis) militants in Syria.

The boy, identified as B, was 17 and a recent convert to Islam when he and three others left Nice in the south of France, boarding a plane to Turkey on December 27, 2013, and from there travelled to IS-held territory in Syria.

    iSlam is an industry. A parasitic one.

      Well, she might as well suck a bit more out of the dying infidel civilization. When islam takes over entirely they’ll only have other muslims to prey on – a much less lucrative gig.

    Right, the state raised her son to be a Muslim fanatic.

    Left from Nice? Nice . . .;)

    Muslims want the government to pay for their irresponsibility.

    There needs to be a countersuit against her for permitting her son to become radicalized.

    • Alain

      I agree but would replace “permitting her son to become radicalized” to permitting her son to become a devout Muslim.

    That takes chutzpah.
