(Paris) The terror of the assault in the supermarket Leclerc in Seyne-sur-Mer is still fresh in people’s memories as happened in France already with the next attack. In both, the motive refers to Islam, but the authorities seem to ignore it.
A 24-year-old Muslim woman, who was already on record with the police for other violent crimes, arrived on Sunday dressed in black robes and entered the supermarket shouting "Allahu Akbar: You are all infidels!" Then she rammed the knife she carried into the breast of a female customer and struck a saleswoman in the eye.
Whether because of the delusion called political correctness or out of complete misunderstanding of Islamic reality, in any case, the competent prosecutor's office immediately put the murder in the category of individual cases by the mentally disturbed. The procedure is familiar. The official requirement seems to be: De-escalation at all costs and no connection with Islam.
On the other hand, however l, the dynamics of the act and the vocabulary used by the assassin speaks. Nothing seems to have been left to chance. The investigation continues meanwhile, because many points of the incident are still "unclear" according to investigators.
Meanwhile, the press agencies had already report the next violence with an Islamic background. The rapid succession of the attacks shows that the individual case thesis is an official and media construct in order not to face the political reality, and more importantly, to prevent the population from drawing the necessary conclusions from it.
A few hours after the attack on the supermarket, a 29-year-old Muslim rose in the night hours yesterday with the same dynamic. At 1.50 am he tried to attack two police officers from Nice. He, too, was armed with a knife, and he also shouted to the victims, "You are unbelievers, I will kill you."
The culprit had been surprised by the two police officers, as he filmed the town hall and some streets and alleys. When he was stopped, he immediately wanted to attack. The officers were able to disarm him and arrest him. He was already known to the police, but according to anti-terrorist units with initial reports he was a blank slate.
Both incidents have many similarities. It therefore seems incomprehensible why the authorities classify them as banal individual acts. The fact is that the French feel less and less safe in their own homes, especially on the streets after dark. There is a growing mix of Muslim violent criminals and common criminals. The extent to which both groups are congruent can at best be foreseen in the absence of corresponding police statistics.
As long as the sense of security of the citizens is suffering because they no longer feel safe on the streets in their own country, politics, the judiciary and the police do not sufficiently fulfill their tasks. The patrolling military in the French cities does not improve security, but only shows false actionism, which blatantly confirms the perceived loss of security. Above all, the French military on France's roads reveals the helplessness of the political decision-makers, who, locked up in a "multi-cultural” tower have shown themselves "without alternative" to shirk the real questions.
