A shot to the head and now his virgins can comfort him

Mohamed Merah is dead.  He murdered 7 in the name of Allah and justified his actions through the Qur'an.  President Sarkozy says Islam had nothing to do with these seven innocent people losing their lives yet Merah was a claimed member of Al-Qaeda.  The disconnect between reality and what the West wants to see is astounding, I wonder how much farther backwards we will have to bend before we fall down.

French police kill 'Al-Qaeda' militant as battle ends siege

Police used massive firepower Thursday to end the 32-hour siege of a killer whose murders of Jewish schoolchildren and soldiers traumatised France and briefly halted the presidential election campaign.
The self-proclaimed Al-Qaeda militant died in an intense firefight as he tried to shoot his way out of his surrounded apartment in the southwestern city of Toulouse when officers from special police forces moved in.
An Al-Qaeda linked group, Jund al-Khilafah, claimed responsibility on jihadist websites for the shootings by a man whom French President Nicolas Sarkozy dubbed a "monster".
The seven killings shocked France, home to western Europe's largest Jewish and Muslim minorities, and raised questions about intolerance and security failures in the midst of a hard-fought presidential election campaign.
Mohamed Merah, who admitted shooting dead three soldiers and three children and a teacher at a Jewish school -- murders he filmed with a video camera -- opened fire when police from the elite RAID force stormed his flat.
Police said the 23-year-old burst out of the bathroom and shot at police before jumping out the window of his first-floor apartment, still firing as he fell, in a bid to escape.
France's chief anti-terror prosecutor, Francois Molins, said Merah was shot in the head while wearing a black djellaba, a traditional loose-fitting North African robe, and a bullet-proof vest.
Molins said police had been told to do everything possible to take Merah alive but had no choice when he opened fire "at an incredible rate".
"He literally launched an assault, rushing forward with a Colt .45 and continuing to fire as he jumped through the window, until he was shot in the head," Molins told journalists.
"He was dead by the time he hit the ground," a police source told AFP, while Interior Minister Claude Gueant said: "A RAID officer who is used to this kind of thing told me that he had never seen such a violent assault."
The streets of the residential area resounded with the sound of intense gunfire in a shattering finale to the standoff which began before dawn on Wednesday. A police source said around 300 shots were fired.
"It's the first time in my life I've seen someone, as we launch an assault, launch an assault against us," RAID head Amaury de Hauteclocque said.
Get used to it, Hauteclocque because as the Muslim population continues to outpace your native Frenchmen, this kind of behavior will continue to escalate.  Just look at your own Marseilles and parts of Paristan.

Update:  here is a live twitter feed during the final hours before the fatal head shot.  Fascinating reading.

"The disconnect between reality and what the West wants to see is astounding, I wonder how much farther backwards we will have to bend before we fall down". Who is this 'we'? The West is failing to fight Islamic extremism by invading Muslim countries and murdering their inhabitants. It's not 'bending down' to Islam. The only outside influence the West bends down to is Jewish power.
