Islamic Terror Strikes France Again
Two women were stabbed to death in Marseille Sunday morning in what police described as a "likely terrorist act."
Multiple police sources indicated to
that the attacker screamed "Allahu Akbar" as he carried out the deadly attack.
"France has been in a state of emergency following a spate of attacks" by Islamic Salafist terrorists, reported Reuters — bordering on understatement. Indeed, Sunday's attack is the seventh act of Islamic terror to strike France this year.
In August, an Islamic State sympathizer rammed a vehicle into a group of soldiers in the Levallois-Perret commune, in Paris's northwest suburbs.
In June, two Islamic terrorist attacks were carried out in France. On June 9, an Algerian man named Farid Ikken attacked a police officer with a hammer in front of the famous Notre Dame cathedral. Ikken had pledged allegiance to ISIS.
France was struck again less than two weeks later on June 19, as Djaziri Adam Lotfi — another self-proclaimed ISIS fighter — rammed his car into a police vehicle on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Authorities found explosives, and assault rifle, and multiple handguns in his car.
The Champs-Élysées was the scene of another Islamic terrorist attack in April, when Karim Cheurfi, armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, opened fire on police officers there.
In March, a man named Ziyed Ben Belgacem shot and injured a police officer in the Paris suburb of Garges-lès-Gonesse. Belgacem was later killed at Orly Airport as he tried to wrestle a gun from an armed police officer there. He claimed he wished to kill and die in the name of Allah. In February, a man armed with a machete and shouting "Allahu Akbar" was killed while trying to enter the Louvre.
And that's just 2017 so far. Since 2012 — when Mohammed Merah murdered three French paratroopers, a French Rabbi, and three schoolchildren — there have been at least 27 Islamic terrorist attacks on French soil, killing at least 248 people and injuring hundreds and hundreds more.
France has a choice. She can continue to exist in a permanent state of emergency, her people subject to the worst butchery imaginable by vile terrorists. Or she can get serious about eradicating the Salafist menace from her midst.
