After Imad and less than ten days, another seven people became the terrorist’s victims. On 15th march the corporal Abel Chennouf and the corporal Mohamed Legouad lost their lives in Montauban. On 19th march four civil Jews of a Jewish confession were slaughtered in front of Ozar HaTorah school: the rabbi Jonathan Sandler, his children Gabriel and Aryeh, and Myriam Monsenego, the school’s manager’s daughter. The corporal Loïc Liber nowadays is tetraplegic and fights to rebuild his life.

By killing Imad Ibn Ziaten, Abel chennouf and Mohamed Legouad, the jihadi terrorist targeted at the Republic -of France- and the symbol that represents the integration, among the French army, children of immigrant families in France. By slaughtering four civil Jews of a Jewish confession, he put his claimed anti-Semitism gesture. By his criminal acts, against the idea of living together, the democracy and the republic -of France- that fought Mohammed Merah, fanatical follower of a radical Islam.
For that the remembrance of Imad and all the victims, civils and military of the terrorist attacks dwell in our memories. And for not giving the violence the last word, the association Imad for youth and peace sets itself a goal of working, to the concrete implementation of living together.
