Le Pen Accuses Politicians of Jihadist Threat to France

PARIS – French far-right leader Marine Le Pen Thursday blamed politicians for the jihadist threats to her country, which she said had been fed by interventions such as those carried out in Libya or Syria.

In remarks to the press, Le Pen distanced herself from the broad consensus within the French political class over the participation of French aircraft in attacks on Muslim extremists in Iraq, and the widespread condemnation of the beheading of French hostage Herve Gourdel in Algeria by a group affiliated with the Islamic State.

The ultra-rightist said everyone should take their responsibility and added that her country should admit to making mistakes, especially when it comes to interventions in Libya and Syria, where it has clearly helped to strengthen Islamic fundamentalism.

The words of the president of the National Front came shortly before President François Hollande held a Defense Council cabinet meeting to analyze the jihadist threat in France and abroad.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Thursday France would continue fighting terrorism within its borders and abroad.
