"Why are they doing jihad"

Meeting on September 10, at 3PM

"Why are they doing jihad. Inquiry on the Merah generation"

Who are these teenagers who love Ben Laden and who are in complete awe of gangsters, of terrorists, of Mohamed Merah and of Scarface ? Who are those who identify to the Palestinian cause and import this conflict in France ?
Among them, young distraught men, running out of steam, only received with caring by extremist religious men, among them, desperate young people, preferring to die far away from France, in Iraq or in Syria, new lands of jihad...  

For several years, the author discreetly plunged into the heart of gangs, estates, prisons, places of worship and of police forces to better understand : riots, robberies, ambushes, yob rule, gang war, traffics...He is doing here a uncompromising report of his multiples reportages in total immersion. He evokes confrontation with a youth, lost in messages of violence and that identifies herself as "alien" to France.
