Nice, France: A 21-year old boat migrant from Tunisia, armed with a knife and carrying a copy of the Quran, attacked worshipers in Notre Dame Basilica and killed three people, prompting the government to raise its security alert to the maximum level hours before a nationwide coronavirus lockdown. He was reported to be carrying a Red Cross identity document. Schoolteacher Samuel Paty was beheaded just two weeks ago for allegedly showing his class cartoons of Mohammad. The accused murderer was seriously wounded by police and is hospitalized. A 60-year-old woman suffered a very deep throat slitting, like a decapitation, a 55-year-old man who worked at the cathedral also suffered deep, fatal throat cuts. The third victim, a 44-year-old woman, managed to flee the church alive but died at a nearby restaurant.

Over 40,000 Muslim men in Bangladesh protested against French President Macron and burned him in effigy for his arrests of radical Islamists, and in response to projected large images of the offending Charlie Hebdo cartoons onto a government building in the Occitanie region. This and recent events honoring Paty have outraged Islamic regimes including those of Turkey, Pakistan, and Iran. The former prime minister of Malaysia said that Muslims have the right to be angry and kill millions of French people. There are as many as 8-million people of Muslim heritage in France, which has a total population of 67-million. -GEG

A young Tunisian man armed with a knife and carrying a copy of the Quran attacked worshippers in a French church and killed three Thursday, prompting the government to raise its security alert to the maximum level hours before a nationwide coronavirus lockdown.

The attack in Mediterranean city of Nice was the third in less than two months that French authorities have attributed to Muslim extremists, including the beheading of a teacher who had shown caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in class after the images were re-published by a satirical newspaper targeted in a 2015 attack.

Thursday’s attacker was seriously wounded by police and hospitalized in life-threatening condition after the killings at the Notre Dame Basilica. The imposing edifice is located half a mile (less than a kilometer) from the site where another attacker plowed a truck into a crowd on France’s national day in 2016, killing dozens.

President Emmanuel Macron said he would immediately increase the number of soldiers deployed to protect schools and religious sites from around 3,000 to 7,000.

The “religion” of love and ‘piece ?’ The French may not realize it, but, they are going to have a religious war on their hands SOON. No, we will not send our troops over to help them this time.

No sacrifice is too great for “diversity”.
