Corsican militant group threatens revenge on the 'allahu akbarists' if they terrorise the island

This should provide the local Muslims a strong incentive to report their jihadists to authorities instead of saying nothing as they normally do. Although Muslims automatically deny prior knowledge of Islamists' attack plans after they happen, the investigations that follow invariably reveal they well knew about them.

A militant splinter group on the French island of Corsica has warned Islamic State (IS, a.k.a. ISIS/ISIL) that they will fight back if the terrorist group carries out an attack there, while urging Corsican Muslims to unite.

The FLNC October 22 group, a splinter from the main National Liberation Front of Corsica (FLNC) separatist organization, said in statement sent to Corse Matin [Corsica Morning], a local newspaper, that any terrorist acts carried out on Corsican soil would prompt “a determined response without any qualms,” while adding that the French government would be largely to blame if such an attack were to take place.

“The aim of the Salafists is clearly to install Isis policies here and we are prepared for it,” the group said.
