It was a horrible incident and exactly the kind of reminder that could boost French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen into the lead in tomorrow’s first round of voting; another violent attack of the very type she has made eradicating a focal point of her campaign. ISIS terrorists ambushed three police officers, shooting them with what is reported to have been an AK47 with one now dead and two injured.
Her candidacy has been an uprising against the globalist-orchestrated Islamist invasion of the EU and the associated loss of sovereignty. The EU is responsible for the flood of terrorist sympathizers and Islamists into France, which the terror attack highlighted. Although she is surely not pleased that the event took place, she could not have asked for a more effective endorsement or advertisement on the eve of the election. Reuters reports: A French policeman was shot dead and two others were wounded in a shooting in central Paris on Thursday night before the gunman himself was killed by officers, police and the Interior Ministry said.
ISIS claimed “credit” for the shooting and named the attacker, a purported Belgian. Likely an import to Belgium from the Middle East or Africa or a first generation descendant of one. Reuters reports that President Francois Hollande said he was convinced it was a terrorist attack.
Authorities believe a second suspect is still at large. Interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said it was too early to say what the motive of the attack was, but that it was clear the police officers had been deliberately targeted.
Brandet said, “A little after 9 PM a vehicle stopped alongside a police car which was parked. Immediately a man got out and fired on the police vehicle, mortally wounding a police officer.” Officers searched the home of the dead terrorist in eastern Paris for evidence and clues.
One witness, identified as Chelloug, told Reuters, “I came out of the Sephora shop and I was walking along the pavement…. A man got out of a car and opened fire with a Kalashnikov on a policeman. The policeman fell down. I heard six shots, I was afraid. I have a two year-old girl and I thought I was going to die… He shot straight at the police officer.”
Repeating his meaningless, empty words, the prime cause behind the invasion of France by terrorists and their supporters, President Hollande said, “We shall be of the utmost vigilance, especially in relation to the election.” This is also the part where other nations pledge to stand shoulder to shoulder with France until the attention dies down, right Francois?
Hollande already had France exercising “utmost vigilance” during every attack since the Bataclan massacre in November of 2015 and the Charlie Hebdo incident before that. Maybe that ineffective, dead horse strategy, needs to be abandoned in favor of expelling the problematic people, one of which Ms. Le Pen promises to dispatch personally in the form of the non-candidate Hollande, defeated by his introduction of this threat into French society.
Earlier this week, two men were arrested in Marseille who police said had been planning an attack ahead of the election. That incident brought issues of security and immigration back to the forefront of the campaign, now they will figure even more prominently. In that incident, a machine gun, two hand guns and three kilos of TATP explosive were discovered in an apartment along with jihadist propaganda. They can’t just continue to treat the symptoms. The causes must be eliminated, Ms Le Pen is the only candidate properly identifying the problem and pledging to do so.
