This is What Can Happen When Religious People are ‘Self-Taught’

The Associated Press reports of the Toulouse butcher-

Mohamed Merah

Just a few weeks ago, Mohamed Merah partied at a nightclub, and an acquaintance noticed nothing out of the ordinary about the former car body shop worker who another friend said liked to talk about “cars, bikes, girls and sport.”  … Prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters that Merah was a self-taught Salafi who had been to Afghanistan twice and had trained in the Pakistani militant stronghold of Waziristan. He also had a long criminal record, the prosecutor said, adding that the suspected gunman’s brother had been implicated in a 2007 network that sent militant fighters to Iraq.

Self taught is he?  He had the world’s worst teacher.

UPDATE:  Here’s a second, clearer photo (from the Times of Israel)

  1. I don’t think the “Christian ” West can take the high moral ground on this awful atrocity after the recent slaughter of women and children in Afghanistan by an American soldier. Both equally as dreadful, except that the Coalition forces in Afghanistan and Iraq present themselves as agents for good.
