Toulouse, France - The sister of an al Qaeda-inspired gunman who killed seven people in France plans to sue a television channel that broadcast secretly filmed footage of her saying she was proud of her brother, her lawyer said.

Souad Merah, sister of Mohamed Merah, the 24-year-old who killed three Jewish children, a rabbi and three soldiers last March, plans to sue TV channel M6, which acknowledges the footage in question was recorded on hidden camera.

“Naturally, Souad Merah is going to file a complaint,” her lawyer, Christian Etelin, told Reuters.

State prosecutors ordered an inquiry on Monday to establish whether the woman could be pursued for condoning terrorism after M6 aired the documentary in which she made the incriminating remarks to another brother.

Mohamed Merah died in a hail of police bullets as he jumped, gun-in-hand, from a window of his apartment in the southwestern city of Toulouse after a 30-hour siege.

One of his brothers, Abdelkader Merah, has been placed under judicial inquiry after admitting he helped Mohamed steal a scooter used in the killing spree, but says he did not know how the scooter would be used and denies any role in the shootings.

In the M6 documentary, Souad Merah addresses another brother, Abdelghani, who has just published a book unreservedly condemning Mohamed Merah.

In the conversation recorded on hidden camera, she says of Mohamed : “I’m proud of my brother. He fought to the very end.”

She also said she thought highly of dead al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

“She (Souad) feels she was trapped and betrayed by her brother (Abdelghani),” her lawyer Etelin said.

This is just the beginning!! When we bow to murderers and apologize for being civilized this makes perfect sense. The victims are losing their rights and the perpetrators are getting away with murder. We need to have strong achdus and ahava to combat these forces. We need to pray for Moshiach's arrival asap!!!!!!

This is crazy! She should be in prison just for what she said! The fact that she said that makes her a terrorist and highly likely to do something similar to her brothers actions. Yet, in other CRAZY world instead she gets to make a lawsuit against a tv channel that exposed her as a terrorist! So she will end up with the money not the victims. This world is crazy! We need moshiach to come and save us from the meshuganas!
