A French article tells us one good thing about Ramadan: the Muslims do not go out at night. So if you happen to take a bus or subway at night during Ramadan you will think you are back in pre-Islamic France, before 1974. You will be free to take any seat you want, read a book, and enjoy the scenery.
How long it’s been since we’ve been able to enjoy a bus ride in the Western world! Remember when the windows were kept open, fresh air brought the smell of mown grass, and no one thought of the danger of being hit in the head with a rock. It’s been a long long time.
Nonetheless I must caution against going out at night. Apparently not all Muslims stay in.
During Ramadan crime flourishes. Just before the holiday began, there was a deadly attack by a Chechen immigrant wielding a knife in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris. A young man of 29, a passer-by, was killed; several others were wounded, but all have survived. The attack occurred around 9:00 p.m. near the Opéra. Witnesses said that the assailant cried “Allah Akbar” and the case was turned over to the anti-terrorism section of the Paris prosecutor’s office. The police used firearms to kill the assailant and later the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. (Source: Jean-Marc Morandidni)
Emmanuel Macron’s tweet was in keeping with his delusions about freedom in France:
“France is once again paying the price in blood but will not yield one inch to the enemies of freedom.”
Obviously Macron does not see himself as an enemy of freedom. Nor does he see his immigration policy as an obstacle to freedom. Nor does he see his crackdown on “inciting to hatred” as an impediment to freedom of speech. Nor does he see the imminent release from prison of terrorists as a problem for the French. The French are free, they can say anything the want so long as he approves of it. The borders remain open, criminals are released without serving their time in jail. How could you dare to imagine that the French are not free?
The mayor, the Prime minister, the Interior minister and Emmanuel Macron all praised the quick intervention by the police (who fortunately were allowed to make use of their guns).
As for the killer, who was himself killed, his name was Khamzat Azimov, born 1997, naturalized French in 2010, and on file (the “S” file) as a potential threat to security (photo below). Hence, he was known to the authorities. His parents were taken into custody, as the investigation got under way.
Another crime committed on Saturday June 2, in Mourmelon-le-Grand, is still in need of clarification. According to the police, a young man named Kevin, 17, died after being stabbed twenty times. Kevin had been walking with his girlfriend when, according to her testimony, a man tried to grab her purse. Kevin went to her defense and paid with his life. A police portrait of the killer made with help from the girl seems to indicate he is an immigrant:
But more than the stab wounds, Kevin had a large wound on his throat, indicating attempted decapitation.
However a local paper, L’Union, tried to place the blame on Kevin, saying that he stared at the killer (remember, if you stare at immigrants, they take that to be a provocation). The same paper reprimanded readers who expressed indignation at the way French youth are being killed, and almost always by the same people. Marine Le Pen tweeted:
– Kevin, a young man of 17, was killed because he “stared threateningly” at his assailant who stabbed him 20 times in front of his girlfriend. The primary suspect is an immigrant. I refuse to accept this barbarity that is killing the youth of France! MLP.
At Riposte Laïque an article by Martin Moisan defends Marine’s tweet against her critics:
Marine’s comment is in no way scandalous, and is not an attempt to capitalize (on the public’s fears). She points out, justifiably and contrary to politicians and journalists that the excessive criminality in France is almost always the work of immigrants. She adds that she cannot accept the disappearance of the youth of France, for we must repeat: those who slit throats are almost always Muslims and those whose throats are slit almost always French.
I myself wrote an article explaining that the method used by Kevin’s killer was similar to that used by Muslim assassins at the place de l’Opéra, or in Montpellier or in Marseille.
That’s when a coup de théâtre exploded, and a new version of the event was presented to us as a case of settling accounts between lovers.
Moisan reveals that in the new version of the crime, the killer was the former boyfriend of Kevin’s girlfriend. The killer is now given the pseudo of “Aurélien” and the girl is now called “Marine”! So we must believe that “Aurélien” killed Kevin over “Marine”.
One comment at Riposte Laïque suggests the police portrait was a fake. The commenters argue back and forth about the possibility that the killer was a Frenchman and on the dangers of jumping to conclusions before the facts are known. The biggest danger of course is that your enemy (i.e., the media) will foam with delight and that the Muslims will bask in the glow of victimhood.
In the United States we are all too familiar with this scenario. We must not rush to judgment, we must not assume, we must not speculate, because to do so means we are racist, Islamophobic, etc… The taboo on speculation is directly connected to the rise in immigrant and/or black crime. Here, as black crime rose dramatically in the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond, the taboo increased accordingly. The taboo, which is a type of superstition, is a measure designed to punish those who see, speak and hear “evil” and an admission, however concealed, that the protected minorities are indeed responsible for most (certainly not all) crimes.
As I post I still don’t know who killed Kevin. However an article dated June 5 from 20 Minutes indicates that the police portrait was not a fake, and that there was a wound at the victim’s throat. If the portrait was authentic, it is most likely the killer was not an ethnic Frenchman, but a foreigner (whether born in France or not). However, comments to the article insist that the two boys knew each in high school (which does not prove anything except that possibly the girl did know him and was better able to assist with the portrait.) The various taboos that accompany crimes such as this one make it all the more difficult to learn the truth. Sometimes, in France, the public never gets to see the face of a killer, so intensive is government protection of certain groups.
A splendid Ramadan gift to Islamic terrorists from their French benefactors is the focus of this article from RT, dated June 7:
About 450 radicalized detainees, including 50 Islamic terrorists, will walk free by the end of 2019 in France, the Justice Minister said. French prisons struggle with overcrowding, violence and often fail to combat radicalization.

Below, the Fleury-Mérogis prison. Another RT article describes this terrifying institution. I think the French should find an overseas location for their prisoners. There were good reasons for maintaining Devil’s Island, notorious though it be, that closed in 1953.
The prison has housed several well-known jihadists. Among them was Salah Abdeslam, who was behind the 2015 Paris attacks, Amedy Coulibaly, who attacked a kosher store in January 2015, and the Charlie Hebdo attacker Cherif Kouachi.
France has already thwarted an attack prepared by radicalized prisoners. In October 2017 French police charged two inmates with plotting terrorist attacks – within days of their scheduled release. The men served time behind bars for non-terrorist crimes.
Back in 2016 a report by a UK think tank stated that European prisons have become ‘breeding grounds’ for extremist movements, adding that jails have become “places of vulnerability” where jihadists can find plenty of ‘angry young men’ who are ‘ripe’ for radicalization.
Another tale of terror during Ramadan (and not limited to Ramadan) comes from the city of Toulon, where the mayor is at the end of his rope (possibly literally if he is not careful!). Var-Matin reports:
Shootings, drugs, homicides. Toulon is experiencing a wave of troubling violence according to the Les Républicains mayor, Hubert Falco.
(Reminder: Les Républicains is the largest conservative party, originally founded by Nicolas Sarkozy under the name UMP).
After the most recent shooting on Monday evening (June 4) he wrote a letter to the Prime minister and to the Interior minister requesting national police reinforcements. The text of the letter indicates he has been asking for help for almost a year. When Interior minister Gérard Collomb announced on May 22 that he would send reinforcements to Marseille, Hubert Falco wondered:
“I am not trying to be political on this topic. It is too serious, but the Interior minister did not stop in Toulon during his recent visit. We have the same problems as Marseille and Nice. (…) At the present time, the police are under-equipped, but a patrol during the night can dissuade… Of course we are worried by what has been happening in our neighborhoods for weeks. We are concerned. We know what happens in the neighborhoods, we listen to people who live there, but we do not make the decisions. Toulon must be helped.”
Below, a Ramadan cartoon from Riposte Laïque confirms that some Muslims do indeed go out at night.
“Are we allowed to kill during Ramadan?” “Yes, but only at night!”
COMMENT – Isn’t it about time Christians wake up from their complacency and put a stop to this silent invasion of murderous Islam into our lands?
