JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– A suspected French jihadist who spent time in Syria is now in custody over his alleged involvement in the shooting deaths of three people at Brussels' Jewish Museum, officials said, raising fears that European radicals will parlay their experiences in Syria into terrorism back home.

When the 29-year-old Mehdi Nemmouche was arrested in southern France on Friday, he was in possession of a Kalashnikov automatic rifle that was wrapped in a sheet scrawled with the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), a terrorist group involved in the current civil war in Syria.

The ISIS is so extreme in their ideology, along with its beheadings and crucifixions, that it has even been disowned by al-Qaeda's leadership in Pakistan.

Nemmouche was one of an estimated 3,000 Europeans that have already gone to Syria to fight.

At the time of Nemmouche arrest, he was in also in possession of a video which he claimed responsibility for the May 24 attack, a Belgian prosecutor said.

Video cameras at the museum show a lone gunman matching Nemmouche's description pulling a Kalashnikov-type assault rifle from a bag on May 24, firing it and then leaving on foot.

Two Israeli citizens and a French citizen were killed in the shooting, and a fourth victim remains hospitalized between life and death, officials said Sunday.
