Of course he did. Paris prosecutors: Police attack suspect adhered to ‘radical vision of Islam’.
Officials have not officially said there was a terrorist motive behind the attack, but handing a case to anti-terrorism prosecutors usually indicates a terrorism link is the focus of inquiries.
Ricard said his office had taken over the probe because of signs the crime was premeditated, the attacker’s desire to die and the nature of injuries found on at least one of the victims.
So why could they find this out in 2 days after the attack and not anytime in the past 10 years? Oh wait, they DID know. French police minister admits security failings over Paris attack.
On Sunday, Castaner said Harpon had caused alarm among his colleagues as far back as 2015, when he defended the massacre of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper by two brothers vowing allegiance to Al-Qaeda.
But even though a police official charged with investigating suspected radicalisation among the force questioned Harpon’s colleagues, none of them wanted to file an official complaint.
They don’t say why no one would file an “official complaint.” Probably because they were afraid of the guy in question, but also afraid of being labeled racist.
So can we chalk this up to “death by Political Correctness?” It isn’t the first time PC has stopped action, and it won’t be the last.
They will accept anyone, as long as you think exactly the way they want you to think. Abortion rights activists try to burn Mexico City cathedral.
This week has been a bit rough, but I don’t remember hearing or reading anything about this. And there seems to be exactly zero mentions in the mainstream media.
Amid a demonstration Saturday urging the legalisation of abortion, activists tried to set fire to the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral.
In response to the Sept. 28 arson attempt, Catholics gathered before the front doors of the cathedral.
Police stopped the “protestors” from doing any more acts of terror, and fire department put the fire out. So do rioters on the left ever get called out? And this is the Catholic Herald.
Antisemitic hate crimes continue to be a problem in NYC. Youths Knock Shtreimels Off Jews in Williamsburg.
This article is most interesting (to me anyway) because of the statistics.
At an annual pre-High Holidays briefing at NYPD headquarters last week, Deputy Inspector Mark Molinari said there had been 301 hate crimes reported in the city through mid-September, compared to 217 in the same period of 2018. Of those crimes, 155 have been against Jews, compared with 97 in the comparable period last year.
Over 80% of the anti-Semitic incidents have been property crimes, the vast majority of which included the scrawling of swastikas.
The Lamestream Media hasn’t been giving these crimes much attention because narratives must be preserved.
So when NYPD arrests two African American “youths” [cue accent from My Cousin Vinny] the media isn’t that interested. NYPD Arrests Williamsburg Teens for Assaults on Orthodox Jews.
The two boys, both aged 13, are suspected of being part of a group that threw a metal pipe into the window of Volkan shul on Franklin Ave.
They were also knocking hats off Jewish men and boys. Because civil society is gone.
Oh those kind and tolerant and diverse denizens of New York City. Orthodox Jewish Man Beaten With Belt On Brooklyn Street.
Police said the 45-year-old victim was walking home when he saw two men drinking in front of a synagogue near Avenue J and East 15th Street. They said there was some type of verbal dispute.
That’s when one of the men pushed the victim to the ground, took off his belt and started hitting the man in the face with it over and over again.
After 2 other hate crimes in the week.
Police said there have been nearly 150 anti-Semitic hate crime complaints in the city so far this year. That’s nearly double the number they saw at this time last year. Deutsch said the state needs to come up with stricter hate crime laws with tougher penalties to help hit back at hate.
I had a post ready to go on the normalization of antisemitism on the Left. Farrakhan calls Jews termites, and no one on the Left blinks an eye. David Karpf calls Bret Stephens a bedbug, and it is Stephen’s fault for blowing things out of proportion. And there is an epidemic of antisemitic hate crimes in New York, and you can barely find mention in the media, because the narrative must be preserved. Bill Maher is the only one on the Left calling out the BDS movement, and the media is even trying to ignore him.
“Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the co-founders of the movement,” Maher added. “His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement, someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets presented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
Americans are ignorant of History. The Yom Kippur War and the following “Peace Process” that included – more than once – land for peace, which has never resulted in peace.
Am I just not tuned into the channels where the Left and the Media (but I repeat myself) is denouncing this kind of thing? NYPD Hate Crimes Unit Investigating Attack On Jewish Man In Crown Heights With Rock.
When 63-year-old Abraham Gopin exercised in Lincoln Terrace Park Tuesday morning, a woman warned him that a man on a nearby bench wasn’t right.
He was attacked with a “rock” (see below) and the guy jumped on him.
Gopin, who is Jewish and wears a long beard and yarmulke, says the man threw the rocks and then pounced on him like a crazed animal.
Twitter has a look at the “rock” in question.
For a really awful picture of a “person of interest” in the attack, see this link.
Oh, the tolerance of NYC… If a councilman can ask “Is it too dangerous” to be Jewish in NYC, then I think they have a hate problem.
I’m shocked – Shocked! – to discover a Muslim .gov that hate gays. OK, I’m not shocked about that at all. PA bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank.
Oh, and I actually am shocked that this is being covered by the mainstream media, but I think they were mostly backed into a corner on the topic.
The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.
The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month.
Not satisfied with banning them, the PA then promised to arrest any of the members they found.
The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.
Because they can. (Hat tip to The Other McCain – SJWs Silent as Palestinian Government Prohibits LGBT Activism in West Bank.)
Actually, I vote for the guy going to prison being responsible. Brooklyn Man Sentenced for Three Anti-White Attacks in Three Days.
Prosecutors say a Brooklyn man will go to prison for insulting or assaulting three white men in three days, threatening to kill them while shouting anti-white profanities.
One of the 3 has a concussion.
Don’t expect to see much of this story in politics or the media.
