Justifying a Terrorist
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
A slew of apologists have emerged to justify/ white wash the terror attack that took the lives of seven innocent victims in Toulouse, France. The apologists are trying to suggest that Mohmmed Merah was not a bad person and even more, that he himself was a victim.
Writers, even a professor of Islamic Studies at Oxford, have written that "Merah was a misguided youngster in whose thought there were no values of Islam or racist and anti-Semitic ideas."
Mohammad Merah murdered three children all under 8 years old and claimed it was the happiest moment of his life. Merah said that he did not want to be a kamikaze, he said that he wanted to live in order to kill more Jews.
It is extremely troubling that so many people are not willing or able to define Merah and his actions for what they are. It is a black and white issue - Merah committed mass murder to promote a political and religious agenda. That is called terror.
Merah was a Muslim terrorist. He was trained to be a terrorist and he espoused terrorist values and teachings.
