Muslims sentenced for 2012 Jewish grocery shop attack in France

A French court on Thursday sentenced members of a jihadist network once considered among the country’s most dangerous to between one and 28 years in prison for an attack on a Jewish grocery store in 2012.

The “Cannes-Torcy cell”, named after the towns where its members were based, was accused of having planned several other attacks as well as seeking to join jihadist ranks in Syria before the network was dismantled in 2012. Eighteen men were found guilty and two were acquitted.

The verdict comes after a wave of jihadist assaults in France that have left more than 230 people dead since 2015 and an attack this week on a police van by a car laden with weapons and gas canisters on Paris’s Champs-Elysees.

    “between one and 28 years in prison” – I think his actual time in jail will be closer to 1 than to 28. Wanna bet?

    Many more such incidents – small, medium, and large – to come in near and distant future in the semi-Islamic Republic of France (Eurabia).

    All very well and good, but something like the “Cannes-Torcy cell” shouldn’t even exist in any western countries, and it wouldn’t if the leaders of those countries were doing their jobs and had anything resembling a spine.

    I foresee a day when madam guillotine will be employed when the attacks ramp up. Can’t afford to keep everyone in jail , house and feed them.

    “I sentence you to between 1 and 28 years in jail, where you will be in the company of your fellow religionists and you will be be required to convince, cajole or threaten the 30% non-muslims into muslims and radicalise the existing 70% muslims incarcerated.”

    Bring back the gillotine. Lubricate it’s moving parts with some pig based product such as bacon grease.
