Mohamed Merah, the mujahideen from Toulouse, has explained where the motivation for his barbaric crimes came from. He "self radicalised in prison, on his own, reading the Koran", according to Bernard Squarcini, the head of DCRI, France's domestic intelligence agency. Merah has been referred to in the mainstream media as an "Islamist". Remove the suffix from that term and the root is exposed: Islam.

As a mujahideen, Mohamed Merah assassinated French soldiers because they
had been fighting against Islam and the ummah. Merah shouted as he left the scene of his crime: "Allahu Akbhar". This is the takbir, the Islamic cry of victory and defiance.

It's now being reported that Mohamed's brother, Abdelkader Merah, has been charged by French police, that Muslims have desecrated Jewish graves in towns throughout France, and that riot police have been called out to several banlieues to deal with demonstrations that are being held in support of Mohamed Merah.
