Looks like the US isn't the only country having problems with some of their marines-
"Two French marines were arrested by intelligence agents this week as part of a probe into an anti-Semitic bomb attack near Paris last autumn. One of the soldiers is the brother of a suspected jihadist in Syria.
The men are accused stealing military-owned bullet-proof jackets and heavy-duty helmets.
The September grenade attack on a kosher supermarket in Sarcelles sparked a major anti-terrorist investigation which led to the discovery of bomb-making equipment and the arrest of 12 suspected members of a jihadist cell near Paris in October.
The suspected leader of those detained, 33-year-old Jeremie Louis-Sidney, was shot dead in October last year after he opened fire on officers seeking to arrest him in a dawn raid at his home in the eastern city of Strasbourg.
A list of Jewish organisations in the Paris area was found at one of the addresses where the bomb-making components were discovered.
The Sarcelles grenade attack was one of the most high profile incidents of anti-Semitism, which soared by 82 percent in 2012 according to a worrying report.
Last year also saw the murder of four Jewish people in Toulouse, including three children by self proclaimed Al-Qaeda inspired gunman Mohamed Merah."
The above article was posted at JihadWatch, a brilliant site hosted by Robert Spencer (who has just announced another book coming) and it was commented on by someone who makes the following good point-
"These guys availed themselves of bullet-proof vests. Maj. Hasan used a side arm. What's going to happen when the pilot of a fully-armed fighter jet suddenly "goes jihad" and attacks Buckingham Palace, the White House, the Super Bowl, Air Force One, etc??? It seems a matter of "when," not "if."
