Mandag begynte rettssaken mot en gruppe på 15 jihadister som hadde flere kosherbutikker på listen over mulige mål.

Gruppen som kaller seg Stolthetens riddere, ble oppdaget i kjølvannet av Mohammed Merahs dødelige raid i Toulouse i 2012.

A computer file marked “targets” of Forsane Alizza listed multiple kosher groceries and the magazine Charlie Hebdo, scenes of the January attacks that left 20 dead, including the three gunmen.

Achamlane denounced the attacks from his jail cell in a letter to investigators and said he had nothing to do with them, according to court documents. There are no known links between the group and the January attackers.

At the time of their arrests, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said Forsane Alizza members received physical training in the parks and forests around Paris and religious indoctrination “in order to take part in a jihad.” The group preached hate and violence on their Internet site which “called for an Islamic caliphate in France, the application of Sharia (law) and incited Muslims to unite to prepare for civil war,” Molins said.

Gruppen hadde også Charlie Hebdo på sin liste, men dem var det som kjent andre som tok seg av.

Forsvarere bruker nå ytringsfrihet som argument for glorifisering av terror og jihad. John Christian Elden har gjort det om Ubaydullah Hussain og forsvareren i Paris gjorde det samme:

A lawyer for the group, Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, said on the iTele TV station the trial “risks hurting freedom of expression” because issues concerning Muslims can be associated with terrorism.
