Skip to comments.French soldier stabbed while on patrol near Paris (Muslim attacker - IM: "Let's be prudent now...")

A French soldier patrolling a business neighborhood west of Paris was stabbed in the neck and injured on Saturday by a man who fled the scene and is being sought by police, President Francois Hollande said.
The 23-year-old was patrolling in uniform with two other soldiers as part of France's Vigipirate anti-terror surveillance plan when he was approached from behind around 6 p.m. and attacked with a knife or a box-cutter.
A police union spokesman said surveillance footage of the attacker showed him as tall and bearded, aged about 35, possibly of North African origin and wearing a white Arab-style tunic.
Hollande, in the Ethiopian city of Addis Ababa, commented on the stabbing to say police were hunting for the attacker but did not provide any details about his identity or any possible motivation for the attack.
"We still don't know the exact circumstances of the attack or the identity of the attacker, but we are exploring all options," Hollande told journalists.
Three days after a British soldier was killed in a London street by two men who said they acted to avenge violence against Muslims, the attack near Paris raised questions about a possible copycat attempt to kill a French soldier.
Interior Minister Manuel Valls noted the similarity in an interview on France 2 TV saying the attacker was clearly trying to murder his victim, but he added that it was too early to offer any theories.
"Let's be prudent for now," Valls said of the attacker's identity and motivations. "Everything is being done to arrest this individual."

The West deserves its fate.
“patrolling” is something a soldier does in a war zone?
Obama called the IM and told him not to jump to conclusions. >sarc
Patrolling soldiers seem to be a common feature in socialist countries. For all the good it did them.
they were patrolling for black marketeers so they could get there cut
Patrolling unarmed in any socialist country with a large population of immigrants seems pretty stupid.
Do you know — did Germany ever invite the Muslims in
in the numbers of England and France?
Believe it or not, there ARE a few remaining conservative Christians in Paris. I would start looking in that community.

“did Germany ever invite the Muslims “
They invited in a huge number of Turks.
Yep..Obama won’t jump to any conclusions unless its his “son” Trayvon Martin, then its OK to jump to conclusions
There may be up to five million Muslims in Germany.
Who’s jumping to conclusions now?
I’m thinking now, after I posted, that maybe it is more an EU invitation rather than a specific country invite. (Guess I still see them as sovereign countries) Anyway I’m gonna check it out further. thanks.
Isn’t that just jumping to conclusions? Oh, wait, what?
It's a long time ago but not much changed. On a 3 day pass in WW II I sold my cigarettes to pay for my stay. I didn't smoke and cigarettes were cash. Black market very active but they didn't know the difference between our money and cigar store coupons. They wanted GI overcoats. The Red Cross gave us passes to the Follies and used our cash for Pig Alley and got drunk. Most of the French soldiers I saw were Algerians. The guys were more afraid of them than the Nazis. They carried ears like Indians carried scalps. I don't know whether they were Muslims or not, frankly it didn't make any difference what they were.
Since the article is silent regarding whether the soldier was armed, should I presume that he was not?
Another name for "unarmed soldier" is "prisoner of war".
Yep, liberals jump to conclusions when it benefits them, but when its something as obvious as THIS they won’t say a word, because their main objective is to protect Muslims at all costs
Yes, Germany invited in a large number of Turkish and Arab “guest workers” in the 1960s and 70s. They have not had children and grandchildren. They speak German, and are better assimilated than the Muslims in France and the U.K. They are still not really German, however.
You can see this all played out in the different choices made by the Turkish German soccer players Hamit Altintop and Mesut Özil.
Now one can see why there is such a thing as Amendment number 2!
Just wondering what would happen in the US if they tried something like that.
It wouldnt surprise me to see this happen here, after all, we have a Muslim apologist in the White House..if this were to happen he would make excuses for them
When will they admit that the problem is not just one of "individuals"?
I think those morons know who have guns and doesn’t. Any mob of Islamist b.....s torching cars where I live would most likely find themselves riddled with bullets in very short order. Where I live, even most Democrats have guns.

“The West deserves it’s fate.”
We need to distinguish between Europe’s “elites” and Europe’s people. The latter have had their altruism and sense of fair play used against them by the former in this great social experiment of multiculturalism. Slowly the worm is turning, though. The European people are starting to see through the fog and realize that they’ve been duped by their leaders. After seeing countless numbers of their daughters being raped, sons being murdered, and grandparents accosted, European people are starting to accept that not all people are the same and not all people can live together without conflict. Hopefullythe worm turns fully before it’s too late, hopefully Europe’s increasingly totalitarian leaders do not suppress the righteous uprising, and hopefully Europe’s traitorous leaders get the fate they deserve.
Clinton outlawed having guns on base. Had to be in the armory. If they were armed I doubt if there would have been even one death.
We probably don’t have long to wait.
Actually we already experienced this and it was much worse - remember the Ft Hood workplace violence?
Very intere6ting and fairly written article. Is it Turkish? although I see it was translated from German.
This sentence jumped out:
“Ever since SPD politician Thilo Sarrazin blustered that migrants and in particular Muslim immigrants are diluting the supposedly high-grade German gene pool, the political establishment has found itself in a quandary.”
One last question: In Olympics did Ozil play for Germany? After his comments I would think so — better statement than any of the politicians.
True - but those soldiers were unarmed. Let them try it in say a mall.
I was about to post Fort Hood, and then thought I should scroll down to see if anyone else did already.
Everyone on the base was unarmed, as I recall. Defenseless targets for “workplace violence”.
Just wondering what would happen in the US if they tried something like that.
It’s called “workplace violence” . . . at Fort Hood.
Right and those wounded were denied relief.
We have to be tolerant of the Religion of Violence.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Are you forgetting Fort Hood, which took place in a "gun free zone?"
“Any mob of Islamist b.....s torching cars where I live would most likely find themselves riddled with bullets in very short order. Where I live, even most Democrats have guns.”
That’s because you haven’t been cowed yet by political correctness. You likely don’t care if some purse-carrying, mascara-wearing metrosexual wimp calls you a name. In fact, if a liberal puke got in your face, you’d probably stomp his nuts into the concrete.
Pleased to make your acquaintance, driftless2.
Gun Free because of Clinton.
A lot of Turkish immigrants in Kruatland.
America has become wimpified. We are a nation that fears to be called a racist worse than being murdered. In time we will wake up but how many must die until then?
"A category mistake, or category error, is a semantic or ontological error in which "things of one kind are presented as if they belonged to another", or, alternatively, a property is ascribed to a thing that could not possibly have that property." [...] The first example is of a visitor to Oxford. The visitor, upon viewing the colleges and library, reportedly inquired But where is the University?" The visitor's mistake is presuming that a University is part of the category "units of physical infrastructure" or some such thing, rather than the category "institutions", say, which are far more abstract and complex conglomerations of buildings, people, procedures, and so on."
In this case, and in many other, politically myopic investigators are scrutinizing actions of every single jihadi, be it Nidal Malik Hassan, or Beltway Snipers, or London Butchers, or this one, without even trying to understand that they are all soldiers of a larger army, and that they are all sicced upon infidels by mullahs in mosques. All these jihadis are expendable material, and their individual tactics will be all over the place.
If a problem is incorrectly defined it becomes unsolvable. You cannot treat symptoms, you have to treat the disease - but for that you need to understand that high temperature or running nose are just outward signs of a virus in your body.
I think politicians are just afraid to deal with the real problem. I am not even sure it can be dealt with democratically - not any more than two wolves and a sheep democratically deciding what's for dinner.
NO, Sick, multiculturalist, brain dead, dhimmituded, leftist, liberals DESERVE their fate. WE DON’T.
There are a few million muslims in Germany, mainly Turkish, but also many other nationalities.
I honestly don’t know if he did play for Germany in the Olympics, but I know he’s played for the “national team”. If that means World Cup or Olympics, or both, I don’t know.
