French Muslim Bouchra Bagour is a fine example of irresponsible parenting and rubbing Non Muslims noses it, by blatantly supporting Islamic terrorists responsible for the most shocking terror attack in history. To us in the civilized non-Muslim world that is. To many Muslims those responsible weren’t terrorists. They were freedom fighters, Islamic holy warriors carrying out what is their Muslim duty partaking in Jihad. Bagour was of this opinion when she called her son,born on Sept 11th…Jihad. Like that isn’t bad enough. She thought it would be clever to send little Jihad to school in a T-Shirt saying “im a bomb” and “born September 11”. Wonder if she still thinks its funny now she is facing prison.

Bouchra Bagour, 35, is on trial in Avignon, in the southern part of the country, on charges of defending terrorism after sending her boy, named Jihad, to school wearing the T-shirt.
Bagour is also facing a fine of £39,000 if found guilty. A ruling in the case is expected on April 10.
On Wednesday Bagour told the court she admitted the move was “tactless” but insisted it was not meant as a provocation.
She said she simply wanted to make note of her son’s birthday on September 11 and did not intend to reference the 9/11 attacks in theUnited States in 2001.
Her brother Zeyad Bagour, who is also facing charges for having bought Jihad the T-shirt, told the court: “We were never trying to claim responsibility for this thing or defend a cause.”
Prosecutors said there was no doubt at the meaning of the T-shirt.
“Who can claim that this is not a direct and scandalous reference to terrorism?” prosecutor Olivier Couvignon told the court.
The two face up to five years in prison and fines of up to 45,000 euros (£39,000) each.
