That’s right: France will intervene in order to save the lives of these devout jihad killers. This is the priority of Emmanuel Macron’s government. His country is being torn apart, no-go zones are growing, France is seriously imperiled as a free society, and what is Macron doing? He is directing the focus of the French state to saving ISIS jihadis who happen to hold a French citizenship that they cannot possibly regard with anything but contempt. Macron seems determined to keep France on the path to national suicide. And in Europe today, he has lots of company.
“France Will Intervene if ISIS Fighter Citizens Sentenced to Death in Iraq,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, February 28, 2019:
France’s Minister of Justice has announced that the government will intervene should French Islamic State members be sentenced to death in Iraq for their activities.
Thirteen French Islamic State fighters face trial in Iraq after being captured in Syria and under Iraqi law, the penalty for anyone caught providing material aid to Islamic State or other extremist organisations is death, Le Parisien reports.
Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet said that the French would allow the Iraqis to judge the foreign fighters but would insist on imposing a limit which would not allow the use of the death penalty.
” There are French adults who have knowingly gone on the battlefield, it is not illogical that they are responsible for their actions where they committed them,” Belloubet said.
“We are on the one hand ensuring that the rights of defence are ensured and on the other hand the French who are entitled to consular protection. We, therefore, will ensure the minimum of respect for the right to a fair trial,” she added.
The upcoming trials are just the latest of foreign fighters from Europe. Last year, the Iraqi courts sentenced French national Melina Boughedir to life in prison for being a member of Islamic State.
During the trial, the 27-year-old’s lawyers complained that the French government had worked proactively to stop her and other jihadists from returning to France.
Earlier this month, authorities revealed that France could be looking at hundreds of possible returning Islamic State members with the state services estimating there could be as many as 300 men, 300 women, and 500 children waiting to be repatriated…..
