Reacting to March’s Toulouse murders, in which a Muslim extremist shot and killed three Jewish children and a rabbi, a Palestinian journalist has written that France’s measures against radical Islam are justified.

Ahlam Akram—a female Palestinian journalist, researcher and human rights activist residing in London—recently wrote the following: “Wouldn’t any mother [prefer] for her son [to] be detained for a while rather than have him sacrifice his life for the sake of goals that do not [even] serve the Muslims? Why do we condemn European governments for denying citizenship to those who have committed unprecedented crimes? I am among those subjected to increased security checks at airports, yet I do not curse the European governments for it.”

“It is the extremist Muslim ideology that I curse one thousand times whenever I travel,” she wrote, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.
