PARIS - Islamic militants under investigation for allegedly planning an attack on the Russian Embassy in Paris had other targets on their list, including the Eiffel Tower, police and judicial officials said Wednesday.

Three men, all Algerians, were detained Jan. 11 in connection with an investigation into a network of Islamic radicals supporting Chechen rebels, the officials said on condition of anonymity.

More than 20 people have been jailed in a series of arrests since December 2002 as part of an investigation into the network. The investigation revealed an alleged plot against the Russian Embassy and a planned chemical attack.

France seems to have tried to make itself look like a moral alternative to the U.S. in the Arab world by opposing the Iraqi war. However, it shows that there simply is no dealing with radicals on any level. It just shows them you are weak and hardens thier resolve. I do agree that a global effort is required to wipe this scourge from the face of the earth. Radical Islam is intent on global domination and even moderate Muslims are having issues with them.

The russian embassy seems to be in direct line line with the Chechyen cause, but how does the Eiffel tower fit in ? What kind of reaction would they try to provoke from France ?

Countermeasures, there are quite a few reasons why radicals would do this. One of those reasons why radicals would attack France, is as one example the new law in France banning the Muslim hijab, and taking a more serious approach towards radical muslims living in France which attack, rape mutilate and kill young women who do not have these muslim head dresses...

Another of the topics we have discussed here before, is the statements from radicals such as Osama Bin Laden, in wanting all the lands which their ancestors conquered in the past, even if only for a short while. Andalusia (Which is all of Spain), Kashmir, Jerusalem, Italy and parts of France were occupied by radical Muslim forces around 7-12 AD. Radical Muslims still live under the same laws and beliefs as those from the middle ages, which is one of the reasons why they also attack moderate Muslims who do not share the radical beliefs. So, in their eyes, radical Muslims have reasons to attack France and other countries.
