Stacy Summary: As I said in the comments section below when someone suggested it is all the same whether Muslim or Neo-Nazi. I said no way, if this guy turned out to be an islamic fundamentalist rather than a Neo-Nazi it would be very, very bad for some innocent people abroad who will now have to be murdered in vengeance. If it were a neo-nazi, the murder would have ended with his capture.
When the police and Interior Ministry suspected it was a neo-Nazi, a kind of calm descended on France. People thought, “it’s just a madman, one of us.” Now that it appears the guy is 24 and is at least half Algerian who claims to be a member of Al Qaeda, the silence has been broken and the shrieks are wild. No, this is no longer one deranged individual as the population had thought for 48 hours it is AN ENTIRE POPULATION THAT ARE EVIL! Let’s see how different this turns out to be from the response to Breivik which started out shrieking when the world assumed the killer was Muslim, and quickly died down when it was ‘just a white guy – a lone madman.’ This is the opposite, and Sarkozy had already been out on the campaign trail a week previous promising to ban halal meat due to the fact that Marine Le Pen had been telling people that all meat sold in France was actually halal because of all the North Africans in France.
Here is Marine Le Pen moments ago: “The fundamentalist risk had been underestimated in our country. Political-religious groups develop under a certain laxism. We now need to lead this war against fundamentalist political-religious groups who kill Christian children, our Christian children, our young Muslim men and Jewish children two days ago.”
Mark my words – Syria and Iran will pay for this.
As will the taxpayers of France who will now, though broke, finance more military actions abroad, thus justifying in the minds of other lone madmen more violence and so the cycle continues as it has for over a thousand years of profitable crusades.
UPDATE: Police say the terrorist and his brother both follow ‘Salafist ideology’ . . . the French, British and American governments aided the Salafists in Libya and are now aiding the Salafists in Syria so doesn’t that mean that France also follows the Salafist ideology, too? And does this mean that the dictator Assad is right that the salafists are terrorists?
