Curious party endorsement o' the day

The name Carlos the Jacakal, the nom de guerre of Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, might ring a bell or two with other greybeards. For younger readers, he was a 70s equivalent of Osama Bin Laden, notoriety-wise, back in the 1970s. Wikipedia background here.

Anyway, he has a fairly extensive rap sheet, and is currently cooling his heels in the Clairvaux Big House in Northern France, as a thank you for his acolytes planting bombs on TGV trains which killed four and injured many more.

He has come out for Dieudonné's Anti-Zionist list thus:

"Count on my sumbolic vote. Onwards to Strasbourg with your free voices. I salute Comrade Dieudonné".

And Dieudonné's lot replied thus: "[we] thank Comrade Illich Ramirez Sanchez AKA Carlos for his support".

Nice. I wonder if fraternal greetings from the Taliban or Al Qaeda would be as welcome, presumably yes.

Meanwhile, the Party of European Socialists has come up with a list of '11 terrible candidates' for the EU elections, and while it finds a place for Nick Gr*ffin, Dieudonné does not make the cut.

I hardly think he was a bin Laden in the extent of his damage.

James - Fair, but who else would you suggest as a parallel, notoriety-wise for those days? /Maybe/ Andreas Baader or Ulrike Meinhof.

Erm, that didn't quite work. Who can name a current active terrorist bar OBL?
