Skip to comments.3 dead in church attack, plunging France into dual emergency (Muslim Terrorism; Troops in the Streets)

An attacker armed with a knife killed three people inside a church Thursday in the southern French city of Nice, prompting the government to raise its security alert status to the maximum level hours before a nationwide coronavirus lockdown.
It was the third attack in two months in France that authorities have attributed to Muslim extremists, including the beheading of a teacher. It comes during a growing furor over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that were republished in recent months by the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo renewing vociferous debate in France and the Muslim world over the depictions that Muslims consider offensive but are protected by French free speech laws.
Other confrontations and attacks were reported Thursday in the southern French city of Avignon and in the Saudi city of Jiddah, but it was not immediately clear if they were linked to the attack in Nice.
French President Emmanuel Macron said he would immediately increase the number of soldiers deployed to protect schools and religious sites from around 3,000 currently to 7,000, and Frances anti-terrorism prosecutor opened an investigation. French churches have been ferociously attacked by extremists in recent years, and Thursdays killings come ahead of the Roman Catholic All Saints holiday.
The assailant was wounded by police and hospitalized after the killings at the Notre Dame Basilica, a half-mile (less than a kilometer) from the site in 2016 where another attacker plowed a truck into a Bastille Day crowd, killing dozens of people. Thursdays attacker was believed to be acting alone, and police are not searching for other assailants, said two police officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to be publicly named.

Those muzzies are actually pretty smart. A few terrorist acts and the entire host nation turns into a police state, but never addresses the underlying problem. Fiendishly clever.
France brought this on themselves. We ought to take note.
Religion of Pieces strikes again
RIP hapless victims
Islam says it is the religion of peace. If you say it isn’t they will kill you to prove that it is indeed, the religion of peace.
Thursdays attacker was believed to be acting alone, and police are not searching for other assailants
Unwise assumption. Muslim killers at least got a very large cheerleading section that are standing by to copy cat his crimes.
Yes, absolutely. This is the tragic result of "It can't happen here" thinking.
Hey France, how’s that ‘vibrant diversity’ working out for you?
Cultures are not equal...
“The assailant was wounded by police and hospitalized”
They should boil him in pig’s blood and then feed his remains to wild hogs.
This calls for Strict Knife Control.
Interesting. My local radio news did not report the location or any details of the attack. And that was in a newsbreak during Rush Limbaugh!
They fail to mention the two women were decapitated and the third person stabbed to death.
France decided to turn itself into a colony. “White guilt” is rotting away Western Civilization.
“dual emergency”? But ... but ... but what about the Chinese Covid Cooties?
Strong delusion with today’s youth. Words fail or are pointless and fall on deaf ears.
They invited the vampires in. Now they complain of a sore neck because the vampires demand a Blood Feast.
