Allahu Akbar: Machete Wielding Jihadist Attacks Louvre In Paris

Do you think it is possible for French President François Hollande’s approval rating to sink below its current 4 percent?

“PARIS — French soldiers opened fire on a man wielding a machete who shouted “Allahu akbar” as he attacked them near the Louvre museum in Paris on Friday. The attacker was seriously wounded and has been hospitalized.

The incident happened at the Carrousel du Louvre, an underground shopping center that connects to the museum. The world-famous Louvre is home to Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. It wasn’t immediately clear if any tourists were at the scene of the attack at the time.

Yves Lefebvre, a police union official, said the attacker, who was carrying two backpacks and two machetes, attacked a soldier when he was told that he couldn’t bring his bags into the mall.

“That’s when he got the knife out and that’s when he tried to stab the soldier,” Lefebvre said, according to the Associated Press.

French President François Hollande said there’s “no doubt” that the attack was of a “terrorist nature.” Hollande said Friday that the situation is “totally under control” but the overall threat of terrorism to France remains, the AP reported. …”

President Trump has already chimed in on Twitter:

Just a few days ago, Hollande lectured President Trump on defending democracy:

“The comments came a day after President François Hollande of France, who unlike Ms. Merkel is not running for re-election this year, said he had reminded Mr. Trump of his “conviction that the ongoing fight to defend our democracy will be effective only if we sign up to respect to the founding principles and, in particular, the welcoming of refugees.” …

As we have seen here, these small-scale knife and machete attacks by jihadists are nothing new in Europe: I’ve covered at least three in Belgium, one in Toulouse, France, one in Magnanville, France, the beheading of the French priest in Rouen, one in Russia, one in London in the UK, and at least two in Germany. There have undoubtedly been many more of these small-scale machete attacks in Europe over the past few months, but they haven’t been newsworthy enough to break into the news cycle in the United States with everything else that has been going on here.

It is actually even more complicated. There are refugee crimes involving machetes as well as mass shootings in Europe which are not terrorism, but ordinary crimes of passion. There are also the much more well known truck attacks like Nice and the Berlin Christmas Market, suicide bombings like Ansbach, mass sexual assaults like Cologne, gang rapes in Germany, bombings like in Brussels and mass slaughters like the Bataclan and Charlie Hebdo.

I’m sure this taxonomy of refugee and immigrant violence in Europe will grow in the years ahead. The truck attacks are a recent innovation. Europe is becoming less safe by the day. Angela Merkel’s government even has a website which instructs refugees in how to literally **** their country. These liberal democratic politicians blessed a Muslim invasion without giving any thought to the consequences. And yet, these failures give human rights lectures to our president!

    I sincerely hope Le Pen’s nationalist movement wins the elections. If they do France will be the next European nation to leave the EU
    If France follows Britain in leaving the EU it removes the only 2 European nations in the EU who are Security Council members and nuclear armed nations.
    Then
    The EU as an entity will begin to Collapse

      It seems the Muslims are doing everything in their power to show the French that only le Front National can lead the country out of the mess that it’s in. And Trump’s recent immigration ban is giving courage to the far right to do what is necessary.

    +Hunter Wallace an idea: we have the linguistic talent among our ranks to watch for European news for media articles pertaining to our struggle in Europe and produce translations from original reports/articles that may not be readily available in English. Please consider this as food for thought. Altright.com is already doing an awesome job; providing some material in translation might be worth considering.

    France remains one of the most cuck’d nations in Europe (not that the others are too far behind).

    Not too long ago they elected the Hungarian Jew Sarkozy as their Prez. As if this filthy neo-con wasn’t enough, they elected Hollande next (a champagne socialist and a neo-con in foreign affairs). Thus, the people are complicit in their own ensuing ruin.

    Immigration into France continues unchecked. The people coming in are mostly feral blacks and north African Muslims. While the homeland continues its ruinous demographic journey, France remains ever keen to get involved in American neo-con wars to export (((freedom))) and (((democracy))).

    Realistically speaking, France’s road to disaster has no speed bumps.

  • It is sad what is going on in Europe. Muslims from the Middle East should have never been let in; Europe belongs to the ethnic Europeans. This multicultural-massive-immigration-proposition-nation garbage being embraced by Merkel and crew and destructive. It is nothing but Neo-Babelism. If your are unfamiliar with the term Neo-Babelism, and why racailly consciuos white Chrsitians use it, check out my essay here. https://putnamlibertynotes.wordpress.com/2017/02/03/neo-babelism/

    You need to travel around Northern Africa (and mid East) to properly understand whats happening and not fall into simplistic explanations. Its basically the zombie Apocaplypse. So.. everyones trying to flee. Many of the deeply muslim countries main problem are a weird form of homosexual pedophilia, that just circularly propagates on its own. I would flee as well. But “refugees” all in all are composed of many different fractions and just like when the Europeans (Germans, anglosaxons, french, dutch etc) “immigrated”/colonialised (to) north america (and the spanish south am), people/youth will just go to where economic and social conditions seem best. For all the weird attacks, remember to equally report when some right wing nationalist goes machine gun spraying schools and cinemas. Though another topic is how much is orchestrated to make people become complacent to more “security”. Probably a lot..

    Some very deep symbolism with this attack… A savage literally inside the Louve tearing up Western Civilization.
