A man was arrested after attempting to burn an Israeli flag at the site of last month’s Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket attack in Paris, Israel’s i24News reported on Monday.

The 38-year-old man was stopped in the act, according to the JTA citing Le Parisien. He was known to police already for other cases of “wanton destruction.”

Islamist terrorist Amedy Coulibaly took 17 shoppers hostage at the kosher marketplace on Jan. 9 and killed four of them, all of whom were Jewish. Coulibaly was later shot dead by French security personnel who stormed the building.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the site a few days after the terror attack and also marched in the front row of a mass rally against terrorism in Paris, which was attended by more than 40 world leaders.

    It seems that Mr. 38-Year-Old has too much free time on his hands, allowing him to get up to no good. Try him and give him as much time as he can handle (say, a couple of decades), during which he can come up with more constructive uses of time.

    The following is taken from the Koran so please check it on the internet if you doubt what is stated here, and there is of course far far more violent solutions to everyday issues in Islam. All Muslims are ‘believers” so all Muslims follow the teachings of their ‘prophet” Some Muslims are passive and leave the violence to others but that does not mean that they forsake their beliefs in Islam, which, by the way is punishable by death. Is an ‘extremist’ simply an action Sharia Law abiding Muslim?
     Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
     Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood (9:123)
     When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
     Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
     Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
     The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
     Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam. (5:33) (Je Suis Habdo)
     The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
     Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)
     Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
     The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
     Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
     Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
     Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60)
    The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam.
