Disclosed: French police foiled plot to attack anti-Semitism conference

The French newspaper Le Progres disclosed on Tuesday that French police foiled a terror attack that was planned in September against an anti-Semitism conference in Lyon (Hat Tip: Daniel Greenfield).
The five suspects who were arrested in a series of sweeps by French police between Sept. 16 and Sept. 18 were planning to strike on Sept. 18 at an event organized in Lyon by the regional branch of the CRIF umbrella of French Jewish communities and organizations, according to a report Tuesday in the Le Progres daily.
An unnamed police officer who is in charge of the investigation confirmed to the daily that the suspects were arrested following the interception of a September 5 telephone conversation in which they discussed their plans.
Among the five arrested are Karim and Reda Bekhaled, two brothers who are believed to have been involved in recruiting radical Muslims to fight in Syria, along with the remaining three suspects. Reda Bekhaled was heard discussing the plans in the recorded conversation.
The police officer said the brothers “had the ambition of dying as martyrs” and “planned to carry out imminently an act of violence.”
How many more Muslims are there in France who have the 'ambition of dying as martyrs'? There seem to be an awful lot of them.

If there is a way to discern who they are, every way must be pursued to grant them their wish ASAP. Maybe we should just ask?

"Sept. 16 and Sept. 18 were planning to strike on Sept. 18"

Check the date; last September or currently?
