A Handful of Terrorists Arrested in Paris; By Some Incredible Coincidence, All Four Are Young Middle Eastern Males and Sport Muslim Names

Parisian police have unraveled an attack aimed at, among other things, assassinating the rector of the Grande Mosquée de Paris. Apparently, Dalil Boubakeur was targeted because he represents an Islam that is "too moderate". Haing said that, in no case must we make facile judgments or devolve into political incorrectness. It is only by an amazing coincidence that it turns out that the four accused — they were arrested in Paris and at Roissy's Charles de Gaulle airport (one woman picked up with them was later released) — are all young males of Middle Eastern origin, that they all have Muslim names, and that a couple of them had recently made trips to Pakistan and Egypt.
Ibrahim Ouattara, 22 ans, né à Aubervilliers (Seine-Saint-Denis), Ymad Bilel Benouahab, 21 ans, né à Villeneuve-sur-Lot (Lot-et-Garonne), Hakim Soukni, 24 ans, né à Aubervilliers lui aussi, et Arnaud Barotteaux, alias Abdelkarim, 25 ans, né à Paris, sont incarcérés et mis en examen pour "association de malfaiteurs en vue de préparer des actes de terrorisme", depuis le 12 novembre.
