Despite the regular stream of violent jihadist incidents in the West and worldwide, too many Westerners refuse to call out the supremacist hate and violence among all too many Muslims; instead, they obsess about “white supremacism” and long-past “colonialism.”
“Paris court jails man for 28 years for 2017 hammer attack at Notre Dame Cathedral,” Associated Press, October 14, 2020:
The assault by Farid Ikken, now 43, ioutside one of France’s most-visited monuments came after a string of Islamic extremist attacks around France in 2015-2016, and was among multiple violent acts targeting security forces.
In the Notre Dame incident, one police officer was lightly injured, and Ikken — a former doctoral student — was shot and wounded by officers. At least 600 people were trapped inside the 12th century cathedral while police secured the surrounding streets and combed the pews.
