French police stumbled on terror plans after decrypting coded messages between Algerian butcher living in southern France and high-ranking members of al-Qaeda in the Maghreb

France foiled an Islamist terrorist plot to target the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and even a nuclear power plant, it emerged on Wednesday, as the country unveiled new, tougher anti-terror rules.

French police stumbled on the plans after decrypting coded messages between a 29-year-old Algerian butcher living in the Vaucluse, southern France, known only as Ali M, and one of the highest-ranking members in al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM.

According to Le Parisien newspaper, in April last year, the married father of two who went by the pseudonym Abu Jaji was asked by his AQIM contact, whose web alias was Redouane18, to make “suggestions concerning how to conduct jihad in the place you are currently”.

Ali M suggested targeting nuclear power plants, “planes at the moment of take-off”, and a string of French landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre museum in Paris.

Failing that, he suggested launching terror attacks on “the modest and poor French population” in markets or nightclubs, as well as police patrols.

In an apparent reference to the famed Avignon theatre festival, he also singled out “cultural events that take place in the south of France in which thousands of Christians gather for a month”.

“The main walkways become black with people and a simple grenade can injure dozens of people, not to mention a booby trapped device,” he said.

His contact then asked him to travel with a fellow would-be terrorist to Algeria to “benefit from a military training and training in combat techniques”.

After that, he would return to France, stake out targets and “await your instructions”.

“I am fully ready and prepared,” he replied.

Although the plans were still at the discussion stage, French police arrested the Algerian in June last year, a month before he was due to fly to Tunisia and then onto Algeria for training.

Update: We told you so!

The terror suspect is an Algerian Muslim butcher, which means he is a halal butcher. 1389 Blog has previously warned of the dangers of halal butchers immigrating into non-Muslim countries, and of income from halal food sales and certification funding Islamic terrorism. This is in addition to the public health hazards posed by poor sanitation in halal abbatoirs and warehouses.

So will these guys be hung or have their heads removed like in Islamaland? These guys will be in Canada at this time collecting welfare cheques. You can arrest Islamic extremists by the hundreds but they will never be punished properly, as the politicians in every free country is determined to kiss radical Islam ass until their lips bleed.

@ John Eduardos:

I just updated the post with a few comments about halal food facilitating the immigration and funding of terrorists. The suspect here is a halal butcher from Algeria.

One thing we all can do is to cut off as much of their funding as we can. That’s why we tell people to avoid halal food and to encourage other non-Muslims to avoid it also. Tell manufacturers and retailers that you do not want it sold or served in establishments that you patronize.
