Suspected Terrorist Murders Three In Attack At French Church, Mayor Wants To Oust 'Islamo-Fascism'
Three individuals were murdered in cold blood in Nice, France on Thursday in what looks to be the third terrorist attack on French soil in the past month.
A man armed with a knife walked into Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and killed two people, fatally wounding a third individual who was able to get outside before dying. French police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack.
“Everything leads us to believe it was a terrorist attack within the Notre Dame basilica,” Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi posted on social media.
Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire:
Several French media outlets reported that at least one of the victims of the attack was beheaded, mirroring an attack earlier this month in which a French schoolteacher was beheaded by a suspected Islamic radical.Trending:
Police captured the attacker soon after the incident, shooting him in the shoulder and transporting him to a local hospital, according to The Guardian. Estrosi said that while the man was being taken into custody, he repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar.”
“We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge,” Estrosi told the media. “Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory.”
On Oct. 16, an 18-year-old man beheaded French history teacher Samuel Paty outside of the secondary school where he taught. Paty was killed after showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed to his class for a lesson on free expression.
“Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic,” the mayor said.
Toward the end of the month of September, a suspected terrorist with a butcher’s knife seriously wounded two individuals located outside of the former headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical publication, located in the city of Paris. If you remember correctly, these same offices were targeted for a terrorist attack back in 2015 after they published a satirical cartoon of the Prophet Muhammed.
It’s the same image that Paty used in a free speech demonstration just before he was killed two week ago.
This immediately led to the French government cracking down on Islamic extremism. French President Emmanuel Macron honored Paty as a martyr for French ideals, a move that made many, many Islamists in Muslim countries in the Middle East and Asia livid.
I’d definitely say a crackdown on terrorism is absolutely necessary at this point.
