A knife-wielding man attacked a group of civilians in a neighborhoods near the French capital, killing one and wounding four, according to the French police.

The so-called Islamic State took responsibility for the bloody attack, confirming that the assailant is ‘a soldier of the Islamic State’.

The assailant, whose name has not yet been released, was called ‘a terrorist’ by President Emmanuel Macron.

However, a French judicial official said that the suspect had been a naturalized French citizen who was born in 1997 in the Russian republic of Chechnya, and that his parents had been taken into custody for questioning.

The attack happened about 600 yards from the Palais Garnier, the home of the Paris Opera, on the right bank of the Seine, an area popular with both tourists and Parisians, especially on a Saturday night when the bars and restaurants there are often full until the early morning hours.

Rubbish! I advise you to watch Ridley Scott’s “Body of Lies” and tell yourself DiCaprio is Syria… Well, he as a hard time but he’ll end with the gorgeous nurse taking care of his wounds 😉 Note that actress Golshifteh Fahrani is Franco-Iranian and not at all into wearing hijab… Actually, she’s more into mini-skirt, high heels and posing nude, which infuriated the mullahs at the point she’s no more welcome in Iran… For Syria, you have a good cop/bad cop job : Putin/Assad is the good cop, USA+EU+Israel is the bad cop.

And yet bankster Macron encourages the jihadis & ISIS with promises of more French “intervention” on their behalf if the Syrians continue their liberation struggle!
Macron invited the jihadis just yesterday to fake another chemical attack if they want the French to bomb the Syrians.
Macron, but not the French, deserves all the attacks he gets, particularly the guillotine.

There is no death penalty in France any more, and for decades. Remember : what you wish to others is what you wish to yourself… It seems you really don’t get what the strategy is about Syria. Why do you think Assad is warned about any volley of cruise missiles? Last salvo didn’t even made a single casualty with more than 100 cruise missiles. A bit sad : JaI leader Islam Alloush (Alouf?) has understood the trick, thus resigned, not without stealing a lot of money… Don’t mistake yourself : everybody is dumping violent fanatical psychopaths into the Assad mincer… Read more »
