Vote Marine Le Pen, says top French jihadist recruiter

A top French jihadist recruiting sergeant has issued an unlikely endorsement of Marine Le Pen saying the far-Right Front National leader defends the “true values of France” because she is against military involvement in Syria.

Omar Diaby, 40, self-proclaimed French chief of al Qaeda’s Syrian wing, is reportedly thought to have persuaded around 80 would-be jihadists to leave France for Syria to join Islamist ranks via slickly-produced online propaganda films.
