    Paris police seek new suspect in terror attacks

    http://www.latimes.com/world/europe/...navtype=outfit

    Attacker Amedy Coulibaly, 32, rented the small house south of Paris in the suburb of Gentilly about two weeks ago, and a search by detectives from the Paris Criminal Brigade and a special police anti-terrorism unit resulted in the seizure of a scooter that allowed them to identity the new potential accomplice, according to Le Parisein.

    Spanish officials investigating an alleged terrorist cell that supported the Paris attacks found evidence that Coulibaly stayed in Madrid from December 30 to January 2 , according to the Catalan daily La Vanguardia.

    Coulibaly was accompanied by an unidentified person, the newspaper reported, noting that Turkish officials have confirmed that his girlfriend passed through Madrid at the same time.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Excellent lengthy article, from 2002.

    http://www.city-journal.org/html/12_...arbarians.html

    "Benevolence inflames the anger of the young men of the cités as much as repression, because their rage is inseparable from their being. Ambulance men who take away a young man injured in an incident routinely find themselves surrounded by the man’s “friends,” and jostled, jeered at, and threatened: behavior that, according to one doctor I met, continues right into the hospital, even as the friends demand that their associate should be treated at once, before others.

    Of course, they also expect him to be treated as well as anyone else, and in this expectation they reveal the bad faith, or at least ambivalence, of their stance toward the society around them. They are certainly not poor, at least by the standards of all previously existing societies: they are not hungry; they have cell phones, cars, and many other appurtenances of modernity; they are dressed fashionably—according to their own fashion—with a uniform disdain of bourgeois propriety and with gold chains round their necks. They believe they have rights, and they know they will receive medical treatment, however they behave. They enjoy a far higher standard of living (or consumption) than they would in the countries of their parents’ or grandparents’ origin, even if they labored there 14 hours a day to the maximum of their capacity.

    But this is not a cause of gratitude—on the contrary: they feel it as an insult or a wound, even as they take it for granted as their due. But like all human beings, they want the respect and approval of others, even—or rather especially—of the people who carelessly toss them the crumbs of Western prosperity. Emasculating dependence is never a happy state, and no dependence is more absolute, more total, than that of most of the inhabitants of the cités. They therefore come to believe in the malevolence of those who maintain them in their limbo: and they want to keep alive the belief in this perfect malevolence, for it gives meaning—the only possible meaning—to their stunted lives. It is better to be opposed by an enemy than to be adrift in meaninglessness, for the simulacrum of an enemy lends purpose to actions whose nihilism would otherwise be self-evident."

    BS. Maybe these "emasculated" youths should get an ordinary job or volunteer at something worthwhile, maybe back in their country of origin.

    This is not a unique excuse. Many who CHOOSE not to take personal responsibility for their own well being, education, their lives, CHOOSE to put the blame on everyone else, ie, OTHERS are "maintaining them in their limbo".
    WORK. Get an education, get some training, get a job, become personally responsible for your condition.
    All the tools are available. And YES, this does mean you will have to become a part of the system in which you live, and interact in a cooperative way with people who may have beliefs that are not the same as yours.

    I am so sick an tired of this excuse.

    "Two people were killed and one person was seriously wounded Thursday during a police counterterrorism raid in the Belgian city of Verviers, located in the province of Liège near the German border, RTBF reports.

    The operation was intended to check on suspected radicals believed to have returned to the area after taking part in the Syrian civil war. Belgium has seen significant radical Islamist activity among its Muslim population"

    Could these raids in Belgium be connected to the arrest of the arms dealer who supplied the Paris killers?
