‘Allahu Akbar’ scrawled on Jewish home, 10-year-old Jewish girl beaten by classmates

It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“French girl hospitalized following classmates’ antisemitic attack,” JTA, October 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday.  Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.

According to Francis Kalifat, the president of the CRIF federation of Jewish communities of France, antisemitic harassment has made public schools unsafe for Jews, leading to a sharp drop in the number of Jews attending them. In the past, a third of Jewish parents enrolled their children to public schools but now “no one does it,” he told JTA last year.

In the incident involving antisemitic graffiti, BNVCA said it was part of a campaign of intimidation against the family that owns the building targeted.

This time, they wrote “screw the shitty Jews, death to Jews, long live Palestine.” In recent years, the same family found in their mailbox an envelope featuring the words “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest — with 9-milimeter bullets inside. They later received another envelope with a bullet for an AK-47 assault rifle and the words: “The next one is for you.”

The family is afraid to live in their home, wrote BNVCA, which complained to police about the incidents committed against the family and called on authorities to apprehend the culprits….

Muslim who rammed car into soldiers illegal immigrant, not known to police

There are just so many such people, French authorities can’t possibly keep track of them all. And since he wasn’t known for “extremism,” they let him alone. After all, it isn’t as if reading the Qur’an and going to mosque could “radicalize” him, right? It’s a religion of peace!

“Pictured: Algerian, 36, suspected of mowing down six soldiers outside barracks in Paris terror attack before being shot five times and arrested while ‘driving his BMW towards Calais,’” by Sara Malm, Rory Tingle, and Peter Allen, MailOnline, August 9, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

This picture is believed to show the suspected terrorist shot and arrested in connection with this morning’s attack in Paris, which saw six soldiers injured when a BMW mowed down their patrol.

Hamou Bachir, 36, is under armed guard in hospital after he was ‘seriously wounded’ in a fierce gunfight close to the northern port town of Boulogne-sur-Mer after he was intercepted driving towards Calais.

Bachir, who was not known to the security services, was shot five times, with one officer also hit by a bullet, before being arrested, according to a security source.

The suspect – who also uses the name Benlatreche – is thought to be an illegal immigrant who was subject to a ‘foreigner infraction’ notice meaning he faced deportation to Algeria, which used to be French colony.

A search is underway at a building believed to be connected to Bachir in Sartrouville.

‘The suspect was driving a black BMW identical to the one used in the attack on the soldiers,’ said the source.

‘Its number plate was recorded by video surveillance, and put out to police forces around the country.’

Bachir was speeding along the A16 motorway, towards Calais, when specialist firearms officers from nearby Lille and Rouen engaged.

The suspect is thought to have a mad ‘a sudden movement’ as if he was taking a gun out, and then he tried to escape.

It is then that bullets were fired at the man. It is not known whether he was in fact carrying a weapon.

‘The arrested individual, born in 1980, is suspected to be the culprit of the assault in the Levallois-Perret area of Paris at around 8am,’ a security source said.

‘He was driving the vehicle we were looking for and tried to flee,’ the source added, explaining why police opened fire.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has since confirmed that police had arrested the suspect behind the attack while speaking to MPs during parliament question time.

The anti-terrorism unit of the Paris prosecutors’ office has launched a probe into the ‘attempted killings… in relation to a terrorist undertaking’, the office said in a statement.

The driver of a dark BMW is alleged to have been waiting for the soldiers to leave the barracks in Levallois-Perret, a northwestern suburb of the capital, before speeding into the group.

Two soldiers were seriously injured in the incident, which took place at about 8am local time on Wednesday.

Levallois-Perret is meant to be one of the most secure towns in France, as it contains the headquarters of the DGSI (General Directorate for Internal Security), the country’s main counter-terrorism intelligence agency.

The security initiative was set up in 2015 following a series of atrocities inParis carried out by Islamic State and Al-Qaeda operatives….

Muslim arrested in ‘deliberate’ Paris car ramming of soldiers

Hamou is a name found in Algeria among Berbers. It is derived from the name Muhammad. And so yet again we have a case of vehicular jihad, as I detailed earlier, although French authorities are no doubt still searching for a motive.

“Car rams into soldiers in Paris suburb, suspect arrested after manhunt,” by Richard Lough and Benoit Tessier, Reuters, August 9, 2017:

PARIS (Reuters) – French police shot and arrested a man on Wednesday suspected of deliberately ramming his car into a group of soldiers in a Parisian suburb hours earlier, injuring six of them in what the government called a deliberate attack.

Armed police from elite units tracked the fugitive for five hours after the attack before cornering him on a motorway in northern France and shooting him several times.

The suspect was unarmed when he was trapped by police some 260 km (162 miles) north of Paris where he had attacked the soldiers in the affluent suburb of Levallois-Perret, a judicial source said. There was no immediate word on his condition.

The man appeared to have lain in wait for the soldiers in a pedestrian zone near their base in Levallois-Perret on the northwestern edge of the capital where France’s domestic counter-terrorism agency is based.

He accelerated his BMW car into the troops, who were starting their patrol, when they were a few meters away, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said, before speeding off and sparking a huge manhunt.

Hamou B

“This was a deliberate act, not an accident,” Collomb told reporters outside the hospital where the three more seriously injured victims were being treated.

He said a terrorism investigation had been launched.

The soldiers were part of Operation Sentinel, launched in the wake of Islamist attacks in Paris in early 2015. The Levallois-Perret attack was the 15th on troops and police in the last two-and-a-half years, many of them Islamic State-inspired.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe told lawmakers in parliament that the assailant had been detained. One policeman was injured by a stray bullet in the operation.

The daily newspaper Le Parisien named the suspect as 37-year-old Hamou B., originally from Satrouville west of Paris and said that searches had been carried out at his home and those of his associates. The Paris prosecutor’s office declined to comment….

Paris No-Go Zones where Muslim migrants terrorize women threaten its 2024 Olympics bid

The French authorities have made this new Paris, and they have to live with it. By 2024, France may be an Islamic Republic anyway, with strict Sharia adherence militating against any serious interest in an Olympic bid.

“Paris ‘No Go Zones’ Where Migrants Terrorize Women Threaten its 2024 Olympics Bid,” Heat Street, June 27, 2017:

Paris’s aspiration to stage the Olympic Games in 2024 is under threat partly because of so-called ‘no go zones’ in the city where immigrants from Asia and Africa pester and abuse women.

Areas like Place de la Chapelle, formerly a quiet square behind the Gare du Nord train station, have been transformed in a short space of time into havens for immigrant rough sleepers and drug dealers which are said to be increasingly intimidating for many people, especially women.

According go the Sunday Times of London, since 2015 a huge influx of immigrants – mostly single men – have begun sleeping in parks, on the streets and under the arches of the Metro bridges in northeast Paris.

They have been accused of verbally abusing women in the streets, routinely shouting “Bitch” and “Dirty whore”. Street robbery and drug taking have also become rife.

Conservative councilor Pierre Liscia told the Sunday Times: “The cynical thing is that last month a vast clean-up operation was launched when the Olympic committee came to visit for an inspection ahead of the Games. They moved out 1600 people in 24 hours. I find it contemptible that the mayor’s office acted only when there was media attention.”

A woman using the alias ‘Laurence’ started a petition earlier this year in a bid to clean up Place de la Chapelle, where she lives with her eight-year-old daughter.

The petition, called “Women — an ­endangered species in the heart of Paris” urged President Emmanuel Macron and Socialist Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo to crack down on the increasingly dangerous district which has become a magnet for rough sleepers and drug dealers. It attracted 20,000 signatures.

She explained why she set up the petition: “As a woman you start adopting defensive measures. You don’t go here or there. Avoid certain routes. Take your kids to school another way. I stopped going to my tobacconist and some cafes because suddenly there were only men inside. I have to ask the teenage drug dealers politely to step aside in the foyer just so I can get to my own front door.”

But, for her trouble, Laurence has been faced with violence and online abuse from anti-racism campaigners, who recently held a small demonstration in the area which got out of control….

Paris to Build a ‘Wall’ Around Eiffel Tower as Terrorism Becomes Mundane in Europe

France: 60% of the population doesn’t feel safe anywhere

And it’s only going to get worse. The 40% just don’t fully realize what is happening yet. The jihad is upon France, and its restive Muslim population that is already turning parts of Paris into a war zone isn’t going to calm down and become a productive and loyal sector of French society. The unrest that already has 60% of the French people feeling unsafe has only just begun.

“Six out of 10 People in France ‘Don’t Feel Safe Anywhere,’” by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, March 17, 2017:

Fearing terror attacks, the majority of people in France are pessimistic about the nation’s security situation, with six in 10 saying they no longer feel safe anywhere according to an IFOP-FIDUCIAL poll.

The survey found that 93 per cent of French believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 per cent feel the security situation in France has got worse over the last five years.

More broadly, 59 per cent of those polled said they did not feel safe anywhere, with almost one in four (24 per cent) opting to “strongly agree” with the statement.

Reflecting the insecurity respondents said they felt, 69 per cent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, and the survey found the French overwhelmingly have a positive view of law enforcement.

The vast majority of respondents (88 per cent) believe France should deport foreigners sentenced to prison for serious offences, and 84 per cent want the country to create more prison places.

A slight majority (55 per cent) would like to see France exit the European Union’s open borders Schengen zone.

With security a major issue in this year’s presidential elections, the survey found Marine Le Pen was judged the candidate with the best policies in both keeping property and people safe (32 per cent) and in the fight against terror (35 per cent).

Some way behind the Front National candidate were Emmanuel Macron (21 per cent citing security of goods and people, 19 per cent fighting terrorism) and Francois Fillon (19 per cent backed the centre-right candidate’s policy solutions in the two areas).

A national state of emergency has been in force in France since Paris suffered one of the worst terror attacks in recent European history in November 2015, when 130 were killed in a series of bombings and shootings across the city.

And in June the following year, a Tunisian migrant deliberately drove a 19-tonne cargo truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, in an attack which resulted in the deaths of 86 people.

However, terrorism isn’t France’s only worry, as last month saw weeks of violent riots spread through Paris suburbs, with cars torched, windows smashed, and shops looted.

Paris: Muslim screaming ‘Allahu akbar’ slits throats of father and son

“Police have called for caution to be taken before speculating over the motive for the double murder after it was reported that the knifeman shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (‘God is greatest’, in Arabic).”

Actually it means Allah is greater, i.e., greater than your god. It is a declaration of supremacism and a demand for submission. But authorities in France, blind as ever, are in doubt as to the motive for the attack, because, you know, Methodists and Hardshell Baptists and Theravada Buddhists and all sorts of other people scream “Allahu akbar” all the time while they’re clipping their fingernails or going to the movies or doing any number of random things, so it doesn’t really have any particular significance, right?

In this case, since the victims were the man’s father and brother, he may have thought them apostates for some reason, or to have sullied the family honor.

“Man held after father and brother found with throats slit on Paris street,” The Local, March 17, 2017:

Police in Paris have launched an investigation after two men, a father and his son, were found with their throats slit in a trendy part of the French capital. Another son has been arrested in connection with the murders.

A man was arrested in Paris on Friday suspected of slitting the throats of his father and brother outside a building in the capital’s trendy 11th district, police sources told AFP.

The sources, who asked not to be named because they were not authorised to speak publicly, said the reason for the attack was being investigated.

The two men died at the scene despite efforts by paramedics to save them.

Police have called for caution to be taken before speculating over the motive for the double murder after it was reported that the knifeman shouted “Allahu Akbar” (‘God is greatest’, in Arabic)….

Images and videos posted from the scene showed the area was calm while many residents told Le Parisien newspaper they had not seen or heard anything.

PARIS RIOTS: No-go Zones Expand as Violence Spreads Across France

It took nearly five years unremitting toil, thousands of allied servicemen’s lives and a fortune in cash to kick the Nazis out of France. What will the cost be for returning France to the French this time? America won’t do it this time.

PARIS RIOTS MAPPED: 20 no-go zones located as violence spreads ACROSS FRANCE

And law enforcement say two weeks of civil unrest has now led to frenzied clashes in 20 districts with millions of pounds worth of damage in Paris alone.

Worryingly about 60 per cent of those involved in the street fights are children, police say.

THE Paris riots are now spreading across France as vigilantes stage running battles with police which have turned parts of the country into no go zones.

As well as serious crime in at least 16 northern Paris suburbs, the confrontations have spread to Nantes in Brittany, Lille – the capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, and Rouen in Normandy where catholic priest Father Jacques Hamel was murdered while he was saying mass the altar last summer.Police have been targeted with molotov cocktails, chased with cars, hit with steel poles, shot at and even targeted using heavy metal balls from the French game Petanque.

Armed officers have taken to the streets in their hundreds and were forced to fire live rounds of bullets and used tear gas to disperse the rioters.Chaos erupted after it emerged police anally raped migrant named Theo with a baton.
At least 20 different areas have seen mass riots on the streets

At least 20 different areas have seen mass riots on the streets.

The scandal, which has seen four police officers charged, sparked a series of legal protests. But a number a violent, illegal protests have also taken place, with trouble now nearing its third week.Hundreds of cars have been torched, shops and banks looted, and even a disability vehicle was destroyed. A coach full of tourists from South Korea was targeted in northern Paris on Tuesday while a neighbourhood close to one of the busiest train stations in the city Gare Du Nord which houses the Eurostar train network was also hit.

Thousands of people have been protesting violently

Thousands of people have been protesting violently.

Local reports suggest the popular Marais district in central Paris was also the scene of angry outbursts yesterday.The north central Île-de-France region has been rapidly deteriorating with police confirming the violence is getting worse each night, according to broadsheet Le Figaro.They also say those out in the streets appear to be teenagers as opposed to an older crowd who initially started the violence.

Police say 47 vehicles were burned on Valentines day compared to 34 on the 12th.And 59 rubbish bins were torched compared to 21 on the same dates.Scores of people have now been arrested after they went berzerk following the alleged rape and horrific abuse of a man identified as Theo on February 2.Violence originally erupted in a council estate called Rose des Vents in Aulnay-Sous-Bois, which is also known locally as the ‘city of 3000’, over claims the Theo attack was racially motivated.

A judicial inquiry has now been launched into Theo’s arrest with CCTV footage being analysed after Prime Minister Francois Hollande stepped into the debate.However the fall out from the incident shows no signs of abating as individuals use the internet and mobile messaging services to organise vicious protests each evening.

While Francois Hollande has appealed for calm on the streets demanding the rioters cease, Front National candidate Marine Le Pen has gone further branding the radicals as scoundrels.Calling the widespread incidents “a shame for France” she fumed: “The forces of order are targeted by bands of scoundrels.“The government is silent. A silence that reflects both its cowardice and its impotence.”

Paris building $22 million wall around Eiffel Tower to stop radical Islamic attacks

“Sadly, the risk of terrorism hasn’t gone away,” deputy mayor Jean-François Martins said.

Of course it hasn’t, because you and your colleagues keep importing more people among whom are certain to be jihad terrorists. You have brought this problem upon yourselves, and continue to do so.

“It’s not a wall, it’s an aesthetic perimeter.”

Uh huh. It’s a wall. Hope Pope Francis doesn’t get wind of this.

“Paris Builds Barrier Around Eiffel Tower to Limit Terrorism,” by Gregory Viscusi, Bloomberg, February 9, 2017:

Paris is spending 20 million euros ($22 million) to build a protective barrier around the Eiffel Tower to replace temporary structures that were put up after a series of terror attacks.

“Sadly, the risk of terrorism hasn’t gone away,” deputy mayor Jean-François Martins said at a Paris press conference. “It’s not a wall, it’s an aesthetic perimeter.”

Martins wouldn’t confirm a report in Thursday’s Le Parisien newspaper that a clear glass structure would be built around the tower’s esplanade. The form the new structure takes will depend on solutions proposed in response to the city’s call for tenders, he said.

Temporary and movable metal barriers were sporadically thrown up in 2015 and have been in place continuously since France hosted the Euro 2016 soccer championships last summer.

The new perimeter will include the space under the tower, as well as two ponds on either side of it, an area roughly 200 by 300 meters. It must be able to stop bullets and vehicles, he said. Tourists will be free to enter the area after a security check, with payment required only to go up the Tower itself.

Martins said he didn’t think the site of yet another security measure in Paris — where fully armed soldiers on patrol has become a common site — will deter tourists. “What scares tourists is lack of security, not security,” he said. The new structure will be the most visible and permanent change to the Paris landscape in response to terrorists.
