21/03/2012French shooter's acts contradict Islam: Muslim leader

France's top Muslim leader said Wednesday that a besieged suspected Islamist who claims to have carried out a string of shootings to avenge Palestinian children had acted against Islam.

"These acts are in total contradiction with the foundations of this religion," said the head of the French Muslim Council, Mohammed Moussaoui. "France's Muslims are offended by this claim of belonging to this religion."

Moussaoui and Richard Prasquier, the head of France's main Jewish organisation, the CRIF, were to meet Wednesday with President Nicolas Sarkozy as the siege outside the shooter's apartment continued in the southwestern city of Toulouse.

The joint meeting shows "an important thing," Prasquier said, "that it is absolutely impossible to confuse this person and the Islamist, jihadist, al-Qaedist movement that he represents, with Islam in France, which is a religion like any other."

"There are French Muslims among this man's enemies," he said, adding that nonetheless: "We must avoid all complacency with regard to these movements, which represent a true danger to our republic."

Islam does not support killing of innocent people, it is a big sin.

Islam is a religion of Truth but do not expect muslims to sit down and appriciate western killing in every muslim country and again the fault lies in Muslims because they dont follow what Allah has told them look at Pakistan and Arab countries. Ruling class live like kings and general polulation suffer badly. Corruption is rampid, religious prechers favour corrupt and rich people.
