Gaza jihadist supporters rally against France, praise ISIS

Hamas security forces allowed a rare rally on Monday by rival jihadist Salafi activists in the Gaza Strip in support of Islamic State and the deadly attacks by three Islamist gunmen in France.

« Today, we are telling France and world countries that while Islam orders us to respect all religions, it also orders us to punish and kill those who assault and offend Islam’s Prophet Mohammad, » said one of the protesters, Abu Abdallah Makdissi.

The demonstration was held five days after French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, in its first issue since two gunmen burst into its Paris office on Jan. 7 and shot dead 12 people, again published a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad, sparking violent clashes in some Muslim countries.

Many of the activists in Gaza, an enclave dominated by the Hamas Islamist group, wore uniforms similar to those of Islamic State fighters and identified themselves as supporters of various jihadist Salafi factions.

Comme c’est ironique de voir les islamistes palestiniens, les chouchous de la bonne gauche québécoise, manifester contre la liberté d’expression du Charlie Hebdo…

M’enfin, les péquistes qui aujourd’hui condamnent les islamistes vont les défendre quand ils lanceront des roquettes sur Israël… Quand elle devra choisir, la bonne gauche dira « je suis islamiste » bien avant de dire « je suis juif ».
