Terrorist Second Thoughts

This is one would-be-exploding-bomb that is grateful to be arrested:

Attorney Vincent Ollivier said his client, Cherif Kouachi, was having second thoughts and was relieved to be arrested, even grateful.

Kouachi, 22, lived his entire life in France and was not particularly religious, Ollivier said. He drank, smoked pot, slept with his girlfriend and delivered pizzas for a living. His parents, Algerian immigrants, are dead…

…Opposition to the U.S. invasion of Iraq is not an unusual political stance in Paris and is certainly not confined to Muslims.

France has Europe’s largest Islamic community, with 5 million Muslims, or 8 percent of the population. Most are from the country’s former colonies in North Africa and live concentrated in and around Paris and Lyon. About half are French citizens.
