French Soldier Stabbed In Neck Near Paris

A soldier patrolling as part of France's Vigipirate anti-terrorist surveillance plan was stabbed in the neck this afternoon, Reuters reports.

A police source told the news agency that the soldier would survive the attack. He is 23 years old, according to CNN.

Le Parisien is reporting that the attacker was of Northern African appearance, aged around 30 years old and wearing a jilbab, a type of Islamic garment. The man quickly fled the scene and has not been caught.

The attack happened in La Défense, to the west of Paris, around 6 p.m.

"We still don't know the exact circumstances of the attack or the identity of the attacker, but we are exploring all options," French President Francois Hollande told reporters in Ethiopia, where he is currently on an official visit.

Last week a British soldier was hacked to death on a street in south east London, though there is no indication the two attacks are linked at present.

It’s a one-sided war on Europe’s streets. Has been for awhile. The side that does not return fire always loses the war.

The worst part about this silent war is that the enemy is aided and abetted by the European people’s own politicians and “elites”.

You may want to have this one removed. It’s a dupe anyway.

The muslims are going to step up their violence and brazen attacks in Europe as they grow in number. The native population must be quelled, they will soon see demands for jizya.

I know what Ike, FDR, Truman or Reagan would’ve done. What a Muslim will do remains to be seen, huh?

“French soldier stabbed in Paris”

By Harriet Alexander, and Peter Allen in Paris
6:31PM BST 25 May 2013

SNIPPET: “The attack was being treated as a “terrorist incident”, said a source at the Paris prosecutors office.

“The anti-terrorist branch of the prosecutors office is dealing with the matter,” the source added.”

SNIPPET: “The 25-year-old, patrolling as part of France’s Vigipirate anti-terrorist surveillance plan, was injured in the stabbing around 6pm but would survive, the source said. He was reported to be from France’s Fourth Cavalry regiment, based in Gap in the southern Alps.”

SNIPPET: “He was attacked in the Parisian business district of La Defense, inside the train station.

French daily Le Parisien cited police sources as saying the suspected attacker was a bearded man of North African origin about 30 years old, and was wearing an Arab-style garment under his jacket.

He ran away following the attack and has not yet been detained.”

SNIPPET: “France is on high alert for attacks by Islamist militants following its military intervention in Mali in January, which prompted threats against French interests from AQIM, the North African wing of al Qaeda.

On Friday a jihadist group based in West Africa claimed responsability for attacks on a French uranium mine in Niger, which it said was in response to France’s military action in the region.”

It’s good to know that Ofailure declared the war on terror over now that the Muslims are finally standing down and adopting a live and let live philosophy.

“Woolwich copycat attack: French police study CCTV footage in manhunt for soldier’s attacker”

By Peter Allen, Paris9:51AM BST 26 May 2013

SNIPPET: “In an apparent copycat of the ambush in London in which a British serviceman was murdered, the 6ft 2ins attacker struck in front of dozens of passers-by on Saturday evening.

His victim, 23-year-old Private Cedric Cordier, fell to the floor instantly after being stabbed in the throat and neck from behind.”

SNIPPET: “‘We are looking through video surveillance footage,’ said an officer at the scene of the crime. ‘He was seen taking off his Arab-style robes and running away wearing European clothing.’

The attacker was bearded, in his 30s, of North African origin, and wore a long, flowing Arab garment called a Djellaba.”

SNIPPET: “While Drummer Rigby was off-duty, Private Cordier was on an anti-terrorism patrol in La Defense business district of west Paris.

France’s defence minister Jean Yves Le Drian said that attack had undoubtedly been an ‘attempt to kill’ the soldier, whose regiment had recently fought in Afghanistan.”

SNIPPET: “Last year, Mohammed Merah, a 23-year-old French-Algerian Islamist, murdered three French soldiers near the south west city of Toulouse during a killing spree which also claimed the lives of four civilians.”

“Paris police search for ‘bearded man seen praying’ before soldier attack

Police in Paris have obtained video footage of a bearded man “praying” shortly before he stabbed a French soldier in the neck, fuelling suspicions it was an Islamist terror attack.”

By Henry Samuel, Paris
1:29PM BST 27 May 2013

SNIPPET: “Anti-terrorism investigators now say they have “high quality images” of a “tall, athletic bearded man” aged about 30, possibly of North African origin, praying near the spot where he attacked the 23-year-old soldier from behind with a knife or a box-cutter on Saturday.

He then fled into a crowded train station and is still at large.”

SNIPPET: “Mr Cordiez told Le Parisien he felt “fine and it’s nothing serious.”

But the soldier’s girlfriend, Aurélie, said he was in a state of shock and bolted upright in his hospital bed when a nurse came in during the night, convinced it was his attacker “come to finish the job”.”
