AQAP (al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula) funded, trained Charlie Hebdo attackers

in 1389 (blog admin), al-Qaeda, France, jihad funding/zakat, jihad recruitment

Jihadi recruitment, training, propaganda, infiltration, terrorism, and warfare cannot be perpetrated without money. The blog Money Jihad exposes terrorist financing. I highly recommend it.

Money Jihad author A. D. Kendall writes: “One wonders when France will begin air strikes against AQAP targets in Yemen.”

Indeed.

ALL jihadi cells are dangerous

Evidently, the French police underestimated the local jihadi cell in France that gave rise to the Charlie Hebdo attack. This small and seemingly insignificant group of committed jihadis had no difficulty in making contact with AQAP, and obtaining money, training, and weapons from them.

The French prison system, much like prison systems in the US and elsewhere, has become a venue for jihadi networking and recruitment. NYT has the story on that: Jihadism Born in a Paris Park and Fueled in the Prison Yard. When will western nations muster the political will to do whatever it takes to put an end to prison jihad?
