When is France, and when is the West in general, going to recognize the danger that mass Muslim migration without any attempt at assimilation poses for the freedom of speech and other aspects of a free society? At a certain point, France is going to have to choose between the freedom of expression and Sharia blasphemy laws. Which it will choose is anyone’s guess, but in Sweden police are already hunting down people who burned the Qur’an, and the social media giants are increasingly open about their silencing of all dissidents from their hard-Left agenda, so the overall prognosis for free societies is not good.
An update on this story. “Gunman ‘shouting Allahu Akbar’ BEHEADS a teacher in Paris attack ‘motivated by cartoons of the Prophet’ before being shot dead by police,” by Peter Allen and Chris Jewers, Mailonline, October 16, 2020:
The victim was said to have been a school teacher who had enraged parents by displaying cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed to pupils.
A source told Le Parisien: ‘The victim had recently given a lesson to his students on freedom of expression and had shown the caricatures of Muhammad’.
This led to an enraged parent confronting the teacher with a kitchen knife, and then cutting his head off, said the source.
The first bloodbath took place in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, a suburb some 25 miles from the centre of the French capital on Friday.
French anti-terror prosecutors confirmed they were investigating an assault in which a man was decapitated on the outskirts of Paris.
The attack happened at around 5 pm (1500 GMT) near a school in Conflans Saint-Honorine.
‘The body of decapitated man was found at around 5.30 in the afternoon,’ said an investigating source.
‘When police arrived, the person thought to be responsible was still present and threatened them with his weapons.’
The unidentified killer then fled to the nearby town of Eragny-sur-Oise, around two miles away, where he refused to surrender.
‘He was waving a gun by this time and further threatened officers,’ said the source. ‘This is when he was shot dead by police.. Around ten shots were heard.’
Anti-terrorist prosecutors immediately became investigating the incident, said the source, who said the attacker was being viewed as a ‘suspected terrorist’.
French news station FranceNews24 suggested that the attack was related to cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published by Charlie Hebdo.
Witnesses watched the man decapitating his unnamed victim – who was also male – in broad daylight, and close to a school.
Officers rushed to the scene after the alarm was raising, and watched the killer running away, towards Eragny.
By 7pm, the scene of the suspected murder, and the scene where the killer was himself gunned down, had been sealed off….
