There have been two incidents recently that have resulted in the deaths of innocent civilians – one in Marseille, France during which two young women were knifed to death by an attacker who police described as of North African appearance and aged about 30. Witnesses said he shouted “Allahu akbar” (God is greatest). The so-called Islamic State (IS) said the attacker was one of its “soldiers”. This seems to fit with a steady pattern of recent attacks in France, carried out by individuals who seem to have a deep hatred of French authority, aggravated by exposure to Islamist ideas.
The second attack took place in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) in which a Somali-born refugee stabbed a policeman and injured four pedestrians on Saturday. Edmonton officials stated “he had been known to police for believing in extremist ideology”. According to broadcasters CBC and CTV, a flag belonging to so-called Islamic State was found inside the vehicle that hit the police officer.
Now, my question is why are these people dead and their families mourning their losses? It is quite simply because these Islamic extremist killers were allowed to immigrate to France and Canada by the liberal PC elites pursuing a policy of multiculturalism and diversity. The politicians who decided on these immigration policies are still alive whilst these victims of their unwanted top-down imposed policies are dead.
Is it surprising, one might ask, that more and more people are showing intense frustration at this state of affairs, which is being vented through support of political parties like the AfD in Germany. European citizens, of which I am one, are sickened by the growing number of deaths at the hands of so-called refugees and are are now demanding action be taken against a rising tide of immigrants on European territories.
According to a BBC report published today, below is a list of attacks that have taken place in France in which innocent European civilians have been murdered by Islamic extremists.
