In France, large groups of people across the country – often identified loosely as “people” or “individuals” – have been committing extreme acts labeled by government officials as acts of terrorism. By and large, the media appears to have been instructed by government forces to keep the general public in the dark about who is responsible for these antisocial assaults on first responders – police and firefighters.
Sometimes, however, it is possible to connect the dots to figure out who is doing what to whom.
On December 11, 2018, an attack on the Christmas Market in Strasbourg, on the German border in Alsace-Lorraine, killed five people. The alleged murderer, Cherif Chekatt, had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group. Police killed the IS extremist. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner responded to the horrific public assault by tweeting directions to authorities in Lyon to bolster “the security of public sites and sporting, cultural and religious events.”
On May 24, 2019, a low-force parcel bomb explosion injured seven pedestrians in the southern city of Lyon. Glass from a refrigerated shop cooler in a bakery shattered from the impact. In response, Remy Heitz, anti-terrorism prosecutor, visited the crime scene as soldiers secured the area.
The accused, 24-year-old Algerian IT student Mohamed Hichem M. was arrested on May 27 and charged with attempted murder, criminal terrorist conspiracy and manufacturing, possessing and carrying an explosive device in relation with a terrorist undertaking. The suspect, who was unknown to the police before the attack, confessed to making and planting the bomb.
Anti-terrorist attorney Heitz said that the perpetrator first denied his involvement before admitting to “pledging allegiance to the IS [Islamic State group] deep down inside and dropping off the explosive device he had prepared beforehand.”
On April 29, 2019, a violent assault and robbery took place in Seine-Saint-Denis against a Jewish family: “The four attackers were Muslim, and the victim says they targeted his home because he was Jewish.”
Although the assailants were unarmed, they used physical force against the elderly couple. With faces covered, they ordered 63-year-old Shalom Hazan to hand over money and valuables. When he resisted, the intruders grabbed his wife Joelle by the throat and threatened to kill her unless Shalom cooperated. Instead, the householder tried to fight them off while three of them beat him severely. The fourth attacked Joelle and yelled, “Show us where the money is or we’ll kill your husband. They took everything,” said Shalom.
The brutal beating and robbery lasted nearly a half-hour and left Shalom Hazan with severe facial trauma and cuts, causing a severe concussion.
On July 13, 2019, the police department in the Parisian suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis was bombarded with fireworks and explosive by a “group” yelling, “F*ck the police.”
No one was injured in the prolonged incendiary barrage but at least six cars were burnt and the police station building was damaged. A police representative said, “We are dealing with determined individuals who use not only firecrackers, but also pyrotechnic devices fired at our colleagues. We really fear that it will end in tragedy one day.”
That same weekend, the police station in Essonne was targeted on each of Saturday and Sunday nights by approximately 50 “people” who hurled Molotov cocktails, fireworks, and rocks at the building. No injuries were reported but the Sunday attack destroyed four police vehicles. Police defended themselves with shotguns and tear gas.
On Sunday, July 14, five “individuals” were arrested for throwing rocks and stones at police officers in one Essonne incident and a “group” ranging between 50 and 80 “people” threw cinder blocks and glass bottles at officers in nearby Corbeil-Essonnes where clashes were reported when several hundred supporters of the winning Algerian football (American soccer) team blocked traffic in the city’s center. A total of 282 people were arrested after the Algerians qualified for the final of the Africa Cup of Nations.
Yet another violent outbreak occurred during the evening of July 13 and continued through July 14 in another town in Essonne called Grigny where 30 “youths” attacked police and firefighters. This city is known to have “sensitive neighborhoods” where youth gangs lie in wait to ambush first responders with “very powerful fireworks, stones, and many other dangerous objects,” that included pavers.
“Essonne is well-known for having a large migrant-background population and was the site for a pro-migration speech earlier this year by French President Emmanuel Macron,” according to Breitbart.
In that speech, Macron told his people that could like or lump the massive influx of unvetted newcomers, many from North African countries:
“We can close our eyes or hide, but migration will be happening whether we like it or not,” and French citizens “must not be mistaken…We are in a world of migration.”
It would seem that Macron’s world of unbridled mass Muslim migration is a very violent one indeed. All we can say is that you get what you elect.
