French authorities and French mass media persuaded the policy of approval of Islamist militants’ actions decades that led to a logical result in France itself, Moscow City Duma deputy, journalist Andrey Medvedev believes, as RT in Russian Telegram-channel informs on October 18.
According to the journalist, events in France are a bright marker of what the consistent support of terrorists in different parts of the planet has done to this country.
Medvedev cites an interview with Aslan Maskhadov released by Radio France internationale in 2002 where the latter calls Shamil Basayev a warrior and avenger who fights under the principle of “an eye for an eye.”
“You should search in the network and find dozens of such interviews, articles, essays,” the deputy urges readers.
Medvedev draws attention to the fact that French media covered the actions of terrorists in the Middle East in a similar manner.
“It’s a general practice: a rebel becomes a terrorist only when he comes to a cozy Europe,” Andrey Medvedev stresses.
The journalist notes that at the same time as supporting terrorism, France hosted thousands of refugees, including militants, from North Africa and the Middle East. According to Medvedev, if France turned a blind eye to Islamist agitation in the French mosques, one should not be surprised by what happened in Paris.
“Yes, of course, it is somewhat controversial methods, but ‘an eye for an eye’? Isn’t it? You yourself explained that the one who cut off someone’s head did it only because the world around is cruel. Apparently, France simply did not understand (and even now, it seems, it has not) that they opened such an Overton window, with which they do not understand what to do now. To express outrage and hold a mass rally is clearly not the answer,” Medvedev concluded.
In 1999, the Chechen Committee of France was founded in France was organized in France by the director of the ‘Collective Action’ Institute Karine Clémen who said that in this way she wanted to support Chechens’ right to freely decide their future. The organization worked on “humanitarian projects” and supported Chechen fighters.
On October 16, an 18-year-old Frenchman of Chechen origin beheaded a college professor in a Paris suburb. According to preliminary data, the reason for murder was cartoons of Prophet Muhammad that the killed man showed to his students. The murder caused a great international public outcry.
