Just when Parisians thought it was safe to go out again -- in downtown Paris, if not in the suburban no-go zones -- another Muslim madman went on a rampage in the classy 2e Arrondissement on Saturday, knifing at least five innocent civilians, one of whom has died. For reasons of political correctness, the flics (= cops, for American readers) confirmed that there had been a knife attack in the city without giving any details.
A spokesthingy for the Paris prefecture told the meeja "A person attacked five people in the second district of Paris. Police intervened immediately. The individual [attacker] died. Another person, seriously injured (by the attacker) died from their injuries." The suspect has yet to be identified, he said, and the motive for the attack remains unclear.
That's the official story as of 2300, Paris time. Why, then, am I saying the attacker was a Muslim madman? I could have said "Islamic extremist". Makes no difference. European authorities don't like to use any of those words until after the dust has settled and the blood has been cleaned off the streets. Mustn't say anything that would engender Islamophobia, you know! (The fact that the Islamist jihadis are out to kill us, one by one, doesn't matter.) I will bet you that when the details leak out, my characterization of the attacker will prove to be correct. Lifetime pct .976.
UPDATE ADDED 13/5/18: Sure enough. As details of yesterday's attack leak out, witnesses reported hearing the man shouting "Allahu akbar!" The phrase is Arabic for "God is great!", and has become a battle cry for Islamic terrorist jihadis. And sure enough, ISIS claimed the attacker was one of its fighters. Lifetime pct .978.
Although ISIS provided no evidence or details about his identity, French police filled in the blanks. According to an official who asked to remain anonymous for fear of being punished for political incorrectness, the assailant was born in the largely Muslim Russian republic of Chechnya, and had for years been on police radar for "radicalism". According to the same source, Islamic extremists behind multiple attacks in France in recent years were also on radical watch lists.
So... French police and "security watchdogs" know who these Muslim madmen are and where they are, but are unable to do anything to stop them from bringing the jihad against us "infidels" into the hearts of our cities. I say, if we can't deport them all (because they are legion), could we not at least stop letting more of them into our countries? Just askin'.
FOOTNOTE ADDED 13/8/18: For those who can't quite place Chechnya, it's in the deep south of Russia, wedged in between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea, just northeast of Georgia. Nooo... the other Georgia! Militant Islamists have been fighting for decades to break the tiny semi-autonomous republic away from Russia.
Some "refugees" from the fighting have settled in France, but others have come to the USA. The Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzokhar Tsarnaev, entered the United States with their father on tourist visas, and immediately claimed political asylum. Whether they were asylum-seekers or "refugees" doesn't really make any difference to the victims of their horrendous attack.
