Mehdi Nemmouche, the primary suspect in the Brussels Jewish Museum shooting of four people, including two Jews, last month, was a jihadist fighter for ISIS, the former al-Qaeda affiliate that is seeking to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, French President François Hollande on Thursday told a visiting delegation from Jewish human rights group The Simon Wiesenthal Center.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, SWC dean, told The Algemeiner that Hollande confirmed the detail now being released from the prosecutor’s investigation into Nemmouche, connecting him to the violent jihadist group whose profile was raised this week after taking the Iraqi city of Mosul and large swaths of western Iraq.
Hollande said that, according to the French prosecutor, Nemmouche went to Syria in January to join ISIS. After several months, he left for Germany and then to France.
So not only has ISIS taken control of much of Iraq after our troop withdrawl, and seized our weapons and equipment the Iraqi Army abandoned, and stolen tens of millions of dollars to fund it’s terror, but they’ve already attacked an ally in France. And don’t forget what the leader of ISIS said to a U.S. troops when we let him loose – “I’ll see you in New York.”
