View Full Version : Nothing To See Here, Move Along

Seems there's good reason French citizens are more alarmed by Muslims than US or UK, though both have increased dramatically according to Pew:



Three deliberate, simultaneous explosions rocked a major petrochemical plant in France on Bastille Day, but as usual it is still ‘too early to talk about terrorism’.

Despite the nature and severity of the attack, which French investigations have conceded was deliberate and with a delicious turn of French understatement “malicious”, yesterday’s explosions at the Berre L’Etang refinery in second city Marseilles failed to make the front page of a single English-language newspaper this morning. The explosions took place on Tuesday morning and set alight two enormous petrochemical tanks which stood half a kilometre apart, immediately ruling out the possibility of blaming an industrial accident.

A third device exploded on another tank but failed to set it alight, reports (http://www.leparisien.fr/faits-divers/incendie-de-berre-des-trous-dans-un-grillage-renforcent-la-piste-de-l-acte-volontaire-15-07-2015-4946001.php) Le Parisien. One of the tanks contained highly-refined naphtha, and took 50 fire engines most of the day to put out, burning away “thousands of cubic meters of oil”, although thankfully there were no injuries.

French authorities now say they have recovered remains of an electronic detonator, proving criminal intent, and holes cut in the fence around the tanks suggest the explosions were not an inside job. It has also not gone unnoticed that the site of the attack is only 12 miles away from a major theft last week of explosives from a French army depot.

Breitbart London reported on the disappearance of 40 grenades, 200 detonators, and an unspecific quantity of plastic explosive which has left police stumped as the facility hadno-one on patrol and no CCTV (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/07/07/terror-alert-france-investigates-theft-of-explosives-and-grenades-from-army-depot/). The thieves were able to wander the site at leisure, prising open the doors of 12 buildings to search for loot before leaving, unchallenged.

Despite all of this, French authorities are publicly postulating every cause conceivable except for Islamist terrorism. France’s Libération reports the remarks (http://www.liberation.fr/societe/2015/07/15/berre-l-etang-un-dispositif-de-mise-a-feu-a-ete-retrouve_1348264) of one police insider, who explains:

“Everything is possible… This can be a revenge related to an industrial dispute, or a dismissal. It could be a competitor wishing to destabilize [NY Stock Exchange listed plant owner] LyondellBasell. It could be a neighbour tired of the smell and pollution of the site. Or activists wanting to prove that Seveso sites are poorly protected. It’s very open and, for the moment, we have little evidence because everything is charred.”

PARIS (AP) -- Three young men plotted an attack on a French military base after receiving orders from an Islamic State group contact in Syria to strike in France, prosecutors said Friday.

The accounts investigators say they gave underscore the role of the Islamic State organization's savvy social media machine in recruiting Western youth. All three had high school diplomas and quickly radicalized watching grisly IS group videos, the prosecutor's office said.

The men, arrested Monday, went before an investigative judge Friday. The prosecutor's office opened an investigation June 23 on suspicion they were preparing terrorist acts to harm people.

More than 2,500 potentially radicalized youth have been flagged in France by worried families, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said this week, and 1,850 others have traveled to Syria or are trying to.

The prosecutor's statement said the three men told investigators they planned a late December or early January attack on the Mediterranean military post Fort Bear, where Djebril A., 23, a former Marine, once worked. The others, Ismael K., 17, and Antoine F., 19, said the plan was to decapitate the base chief, which Djebril A. denied.

Djebril A. told investigators he felt he was on a mission for the Islamic State group and wanted to answer the order to attack a site in France, the statement said. He left the Marines in 2014 after less than a year for failure to adapt to military life.

The three intended to travel to Syria but Ismael K. raised suspicions and was questioned in October. A month later - at his mother's request - he was banned from leaving France, the statement said.

The three, who met online, communicated through an encrypted program.

This time they won't have that vaunted Maginot Line to save them.

I suppose ISIS will enjoy marching their victory parade down Champs-Elysees much like the SS did.

Time to start deporting and shooting muslims, else surrender to be slaughtered. A grim choice but anything else leads to France falling and being slaughtered although at a later date.
Do not worry they see us as weak too, they will start the same here and soon.
WE face the same grim choice!! A fact. And they make it so....
Folks, if you have no sword sell your precious garments to buy one or even better a 45 auto and 308 caliber rifle with large mag capacity. Would hurt to have a good shotgun and about at least 300 rounds of ammo for each weapon.
When the fighting does start and trust me it will , they will need a lot of lead in them to send em to paradise and those 72 homo virgins Satan has awaiting the scum.
See what obama selling us out has already inspired??????? -Tyr
