Mohammed Merah, the 23-year-old French gunman who confessed to killing seven people in the city of Toulouse in southwest France, is dead after being shot in the head by a police sniper during a final dramatic shootout with French police. It was the culmination of a 31-hour standoff with hundreds of French anti-terror police who had surrounded the building where Merah had barricaded himself.
French Interior Minister Claude Gueant told reporters Thursday that Merah had ceased communicating with negotiators around midnight, after discussing a possible surrender, giving rise to speculation he might have committed suicide. “But when heavily armed paramilitary police entered the apartment through the door and several windows about 10:30 a.m., Gueant said, Merah burst out of the bathroom, blasting away with several weapons,” the Washington Post’s Edward Cody reported. Gueant said Mareh had fired at police before jumping out of the window where “he was found dead on the ground below.”
Can a wrong be avenged by a wrong? No.
For the Jews and Arabs no amount of arguments or apologies will do. Time for live and let live approach has been found useless. Blood has been spilt and and it has spilled from Palestine area to all over the cities and town. Toulouse is the latest name to see the wanton mindless killing of the innocent children by a terrorist. The world is accessory to the butchers at work and they are at work with the blessings of their peers, where the rabbis and mullahs are merely beasts with modes of dress all slightly altered to give the religion a cloak. They sustain murder for all their Scriptures. Religion has taught them both nothing.
These killings for a wrong somewhere in mindless past( so old it all seems to be relevant) shall go on and the fools may die with a thought they died for a cause. Once again another killing and it would signal the death of the last victim was a waste. Thus the cause is buried under the pile of the dead and the cause even if is removed has created so much evil as a result.
Having seen these and for so long I can only say with Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet,’A Plague o’ both your houses!’
Let there be not a single healthy olive tree or date tree ever grow from all that blood drenched accursed soil.
