5~ A sudden change of eating habits
6~ Quitting to listen to music
7~ No longer watching television or going to the cinema
8~ A change of clothing style
9~ Frequenting websites and social media networks
They omitted that anyone who is not Charlie Hebdo is a terrorist!
One must love Point 9:
A sign of being a security threat is living and sleeping on the internet!!!!
That point alone will make a good number of French nationals potential terrorists.
As for me, as usual I fail woefully.
I fit 8 out of the 9 crucial signs of French notion of a terrorist!
Of course, my fingers are constantly glued to my cellphone, browsing. Point Nine is, thus, failed.
I did adopt black as my signature clothing. Point Eight failed.
I find television dreary and only utilise it for now for a specific purpose. Point Seven passed temporarily; more than 90% fail in the future.
I did quit listening to music for years. Music, I play again for a specific service. Point Six passed temporarily; 100% fail in the nearest future.
Have I changed my eating habits? No! Not in the last eight years. Okay on Point Five.
But, I can not suddenly start munching baguettes or croissant!
That would be a sign of my radicalisation!
I do want nothing to do with my family and former husband. Point Four failed.
Which sport am I expected to do? Point Three failed.
I did withdraw from Usman Danfodio University, Sokoto. Point Two failed.
I do not have friends, according to my enemies among Hausa-Fulanis. Point One failed.
There is profiling for you.
