French mother goes to court over sending her son, named Jihad, to school in a ‘pro-terrorist’ t-shirt

A t-shirt worn by a 3-year-old nursery-schooler, who is named Jihad, now has spiraled to a court case which will begin this week.

“I am a bomb,” the shirt said on the front. The back read, “Jihad Born Sept. 11.”

The case is presumed to set a legal precedent as the government and justice system handle recurring friction between France’s 8 percent Muslim minority and the majority of the country’s 65 million inhabitants who recognize their roots in an ancient Christian tradition.

Islamist guerrillas in Mali battled the French soldiers and have sparked a new call to Jihad in the northwestern Africa region. French cities were targets in a foiled terrorist cell broken up in Marignane earlier this month.
