The Islamic State frequently uses the term lions for Muslim soldiers waging holy war in the cause of Islam (jihad). A fighter of the Islamic State militant group praised the wholesale slaughter of the editorial staff at Charlie Hebo. French satirical magazine,””The lions of Islam have avenged our Prophet,” said Abu Mussab, a Syrian who fights with the Islamic State, which has captured broad swathes of Iraqi and Syrian territory.

“These are our lions. It’s the first drops—more will follow.”

Muslims celebrated the NYC bomb: “The lions of the Caliphate roar in New York, we cause you pain inside your house.”

ISIS praised Orlando nightclub jihad Omar Mateen as a “lion of the Caliphate.” There’s more, much more, but you get the picture.

Where did these Muslim girls teens pray? Is their mosque being investigated? Their families? Their imam? Their friends?

French high school girls nicknamed ‘the lionesses’ held over suspected terror plot

The Local, February 28, 2017:

Three French school girls nicknamed “the lionesses” who had links to a known jihadist recruiter and terror plotter were arrested in separate raids on Tuesday.
Counter-terror police arrested the high school girls on Tuesday morning, judicial sources told L’Express newspaper.
At least one of them was planning an attack on French soil, according to the France 3 channel.
The girls were understood to have connections to French jihadist and chief terror plotter Rachid Kassim, who French and American authorities say was killed in an air strike in Iraq earlier this month
The girls were understood to have been communicating with Kassim via the messaging app Telegram,. and were part of a group they called Les Lionnes (“The Lionesses”).
One of them, aged 19, was arrested in a raid at a property Creil, in the Oise department (see map below).
Another was arrested in the suburbs of Paris, while the location of the third raid remains unreported.
Kassim was a major concern for French anti-terror investigators after he was found to be in contact through the app with numerous people who have either carried out attacks in France or been arrested on suspicion of planning terror strikes.
He had appeared in several Telegram videos made in Syria and Iraq urging attacks in France.
Kassim is believed to have inspired an attack last year in which a senior French policeman and his partner were knifed to death and another in which an elderly priest’s throat was cut as he said mass.
Investigators believe he also directed three women suspected of seeking to blow up a car packed with gas cylinders near Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris this month.
French authorities say they have solved numerous terror plots in recent months.
