Islamic Cleric in Tunisia Expresses Support for Muslim French Terrorists from Pulpit

Tunisia is a small country but as reported, one of the terrorists who carried out the attacks on Charlie Hebdo has a connection to Tunisia. As a member of what is known as Paris 19 (19th district of Paris), Sharif Kouachi belonged to a group from which assassins who murdered Tunisian politicians belonged.

Just four days after those Paris attacks, Tunisian cleric Bechir Ben Hassen preached from a pulpit that the murder of those who insult Islam’s prophet is justified in the Qur’an. It is not known if there is any connection between this cleric and Paris 19 but he and the terrorist group are obviously in solidarity on the issue.
