Salhi hade den vanliga bakgrunden. Nordafrikan som flyttat till Frankrike och fått sin religiösa fanatism fördjupad i en salafistisk moské. Säkerhetspolisen "kände till honom" sedan åtskilliga år. En kortare villkorlig dom för att ha misshandlat en kippabärande jude... I år ospecificerade kontakter med Kalifatkretsar.
Mönstret är så välbekant att de franska myndigheterna börjat ingripa mot giftspridande hatpredikanter och salafistmoskéer. Bara sedan årsskiftet har ytterligare tio imamer deporterats från landet.
I Sverige har ännu ingen källarmoské stängts och ingen hatpredikant utvisats...
"Over the past three years, France has deported 40 foreign imams for "preaching hatred." A quarter of those have taken place since the January terror attacks in Paris, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Monday.
The minister vowed to clamp down on mosques and preachers inciting hatred after a suspected Islamist beheaded his boss during an attack on a gas factory last week, according to the Radio France International.
Any "foreign preacher of hate will be deported," said Cazeneuve, adding that several mosques were being investigated for inciting terrorism and if found to be doing so, "will be shut down."
Yassin Salhi, 35, on Sunday confessed during interrogation to killing his boss and pinning his head to a fence of the Air Products factory near the eastern city of Lyon.
The severed head was discovered flanked by two Islamic flags and it later emerged Salhi had sent a selfie of himself with the head to a number believed to belong to a French jihadist currently in Syria.
After the attack French Prime Minister Manuel Valls told French television, "We cannot lose this war because it's fundamentally a war of civilization. It's our society, our civilization that we are defending."
