The Islamist gunman, who killed seven people in south-western France in March before being shot dead by police, was not the "lone wolf" he was made out to be by French intelligence services, Le Monde daily reported Thursday.

Le Monde said intelligence documents made available to investigators showed Merah made 186 calls to contacts in 20 countries outside France between September 1, 2010, and February 20, 2011.

Besides Egypt, where his brother was living at the time, and Algeria where his father lives, Merah also called Morocco, Britain, Spain, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Croatia, Romania, Bolivia, Thailand, Russia, Kazakhstan, Laos, Taiwan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Israel and the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, Le Monde reported.

The documents gave no details on the identities of his contacts.

The calls cast doubt over the characterization by former intelligence services boss Bernard Squarcini of Merah as a solitary figure, who "radicalized himself" in prison in Toulouse and was not part of a terrorist network.

"Mohamed Merah, not such a lone wolf," read the Le Monde headline.

The 24-year-old former mechanic was killed by police on March 22 after a 32-hour siege of his Toulouse apartment.

He killed three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three soldiers in three attacks in Toulouse and the nearby town of Montauban.

During the siege Merah told police negotiators he was mandated by al-Qaeda to carry out attacks in France.

French authorities poured scorn on that claim, despite Merah having travelled to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The Le Monde article reveals that Merah was already under surveillance by French and other intelligence services years before his rampage. An extract of one of the surveillance reports is quoted:
The dynamic surveillance regime focused on Mohamed Merah demonstrates that after a period of latency and observation, the target [Merah] is beginning to get closer to the Salafist movement in Toulouse, in particular with [here the name is redacted to preserve its confidentiality] but also and even more interesting with [there, two names are redacted for the same reason] both of whom were recently in Mauretania."

MSM jihad lies and The Middle Ages

"Why must the LA Times obscure the truth about what is happening in Kenya and elsewhere in the world?"

This is from a letter to the LA Times asking why they are not telling the truth about the "Ethnic bloodbath" killing 62 in Kenya

I noticed this news in some European MSM and wanted to look for any trace of jihad behind it. There was nothing saying what was the cause of the killing.

explains it all.

"Excellent letter to the dhimmi Dixon from Atlas reader Chris in Los Angeles.
Dear Ms. Dixon,

Re: Tribal dispute over land kills 52 in Kenya

I must congratulate you on your meticulous avoidance of the true nature of the conflict between the Pokomos and the Ormas in Kenya. This is a sectarian conflict between the Pokomo who are 90% Christian and who till the land to raise crops and the Orma who are 95% Muslim and graze their herds with no regard to property rights or the fact that their herds are destroying planted crops.

This sectarian tragedy in Kenya is reminiscent of the Islamic conquest of the predominately Christian Middle East and parts of Europe in the 7th Century."

"According to historian Henri Pirenne (Mohammed and Charlemagne), this Islamic blight led to the Dark Age in Europe.

History repeats once more."

The problem is that whether in LA or in London, the MSM is telling you exactly the same jihad lies.
