France Identifies 39-Year-Old Suspected Islamist Who Had Shot Officers Before as Paris Attacker

Breitbart, by Oliver Lane April 21, 2017:

French media have identified a French citizen as the dead suspect after his attack on a police patrol on the Champs Élysées which saw one police officer killed and two others injured.

A so-called ‘suspected Islamist’ went on a rampage in Paris Thursday evening, the third terror attack in France in 2017 so far. Local media has identified 39-year-old Karim Cheurfi as the man who was shot dead by police after a running attack against officers with a Kalashnikov-style rifle.

French newspaper Le Monde reports that whilst the identity has not yet been officially confirmed, the individual named is a native of the riot-hit migrant suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis and was considered by the security services as an “excessively dangerous” individual.

Already jailed for 15 years in 2005 for attempted murder after shooting at police officers, Cheurfi had come under investigation again in March 2017 for using social media apps to communicate his desire to kill officers. In addition to his previous conviction for attacking police, he was also known to the force for other criminality including theft and violence.

Three relatives of the suspected killer were arrested by French security services immediately after the attack. A search of the perpetrator’s car, from which he disembarked before opening fire, revealed knives and a pump-action shotgun.

A second suspect handed himself over to police in Belgium on Friday morning. Described as “very dangerous”, police discovered firearms in a search of the man’s domestic address.

The victim of Thursday’s attack has also been identified in French media as 37-year-old Xavier Jugele. Le Parisien reports the officer, who was assigned to the public order and traffic division of Paris police, had been present at the re-opening concert of the Bataclan theatre in 2016, which had itself been the target of a significant terror attack in November 2015 in which 137 died across the city.

Speaking to People magazine at the time, the Jugele said: “I’m happy to be here… glad the Bataclan is re-opening. It’s symbolic. We’re here tonight as witnesses. Here to defend our civil values. This concert is to celebrate life, to say no to terrorists.”

Many commentators have already remarked that the proximity of the attack to Sunday’s presidential election in France will likely influence the vote, with some remarking it could boost support for law and order and pro-border candidates. Not least amongst those is U.S. President Donald J. Trump, who was moved to remark: “The people of France will not take much more of this.”

The Jihad Files: April 13, 2017

Family Security Matters, by JIHAD FILES, April 12, 2017:

The last three weeks in jihad: 

** In Egypt, upwards of 3,000 fatwas have recently been issued by various Islamist clerics.  These fatwas encouraged the destruction of churches throughout the country.  It should come as little surprise, then, that jihadists chose Palm Sunday to bomb two Coptic churches, killing 44 people and wounding 126.  Islamists and jihadists have all but declared war on Christianity throughout Egypt.  President Sisi certainly has his work cut out for him; hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and policemen have already been killed by ISIS-linked terrorists since 2013.

** Elsewhere in Egypt, Islamic militants connected with ISIS beheaded two elderly men accused of “apostasy” (practicing a faith other than Islam).  In a video released to the public, the two victims “appear in orange jumpsuits and are taken out of a black van and led to the desert, where they are beheaded.”  And people wonder why Egypt’s tourism industry has plummeted by more than 60%.

** In Somalia, five people were killed by a car bomb in Mogadishu.  Al-Shabaab, the Somali-wing of al-Qaeda, is considered the culprit.  Also in Mogadishu, 15 people were killed by a separate car bombing believed to be targeting the new Somali military chief, Ahmed Mohamed Irfid.  And on the other side of town, Somali jihadists killed three innocent women via mortar shells like the cowards we know them to be.

** In Iraq, ISIS continues to commit unimaginable crimes.  Approximately 200 Iraqis have been kidnapped to be used as human shields against U.S. airstrikes.  Homosexuals continue to get murdered in large quantities and for public display.  Mentally-handicapped Iraqis are being rounded up by ISIS and used against their will as suicide bombers.  And mass executions against civilians accused of “blasphemy” continue unabated.

** ISIS is also making civilians dress like fighters in order to deter U.S. drone strikes.  Such a strategy of intentionally using human shields is a war crime in and of itself.  It also underscores the uniquely asymmetrical nature of the conflict in which we are engaged.  ISIS almost seems aware of our moral superiority with this tacit acknowledgement that the U.S. goes out of its way to avoid civilian casualties.  Of course, in the event that American drones were to unintentionally kill these civilians (by mistaking them as combatants), America would receive the bulk of the international condemnation.  Such is the state of our morally-dilapidated world.  The Israelis know this dilemma all too well.  It is a thankless job to risk the lives of our own countrymen in order to avoid civilian casualties on the other side of the battle, particularly when the other side is attempting to maximize its own civilian casualties in order to cause a political backlash against our own humanitarian sensibilities!

** Elsewhere in Iraq, 1,646 Yezidi corpses were recently discovered in 31 different mass graves.  Sober estimates conclude that there might be upwards of 15,000 more Yezidi bodies buried throughout Iraqi Kurdistan.  For some historical context, that means ISIS killed between three-and-five times as many Yezidis in just three years – to say nothing of their other victims – than the number of “heretics” killed by the Spanish during the 700-year Inquisition.  So by conservative estimates, ISIS has caused 300% more death and carnage as the Spanish Inquisition in just 0.004% of the time.  And people wonder why veterans remain furious at Barack Obama for withdrawing all U.S. forces in 2011.  The withdrawal squandered all of the U.S. military’s strategic gains from the 2007-08 “surge” and led to regional calamity.  It turned an American war victory into an American war defeat and should forever be considered Obama’s greatest disgrace.

** In Syria, aside from the continuous chemical warfare and mass destruction of innocent civilians throughout the country, particularly evil atrocities can be found in the details.  An Australian baby was recently executed in retaliation after the baby’s father, an Australian-Muslim that went to Syria to join ISIS, had decided he had enough fighting and aimed to return to Australia.  Once word of his pending departure got out, ISIS killed his infant child.

** For all the global talk about Donald Trump’s immigration policies, an actual migrant slave market has begun in Libya.  It seems not much has changed in North Africa since Thomas Jefferson confronted the Islamic slave trade in the First Barbary War.

** The United Nations has released a statement declaring 20 million people are in danger of starvation in the Islamist-plagued nations of Nigeria, South Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia.  In Nigeria specifically, the country’s first sharia-based state is now the most impoverished.

** In the Islamic Republic of Iran, a 21-year-old man named Sina Dehghan has been sentenced to death for “insulting Islam” after he was promised by government officials he would be released if he confessed.  The officials lied and Mr. Dehghan stands to die.  Keep in mind: these are the same Iranian officials America is negotiating with regarding atomic bombs.

** In “moderate” Indonesia, homosexuals are receiving 100 public lashes for being gay.

** In “moderate” Malaysia, the practice of child marriage – for some girls, even as young as 9-years-old – has been upheld.

** In Russia, 14 people were killed when a jihadist attacked the St. Petersburg subway system.

** Turning to Europe now.  Following the latest terrorist truck attack, this one in Stockholm that killed four, including a young woman committed to helping migrants, the Swedes are now contemplating banning cars altogether as a response.  I cannot think of a more pathetic disposition toward radical Islamic terrorism than the one we are seeing from the nation of Sweden.  The Swedish postal service has been told to avoid migrant-heavy neighborhoods due to safety concerns.  The Swedish Interior Ministry is showing more belligerence toward local police chiefs calling for stricter immigration policies than toward the jihadists themselves.  While investigating the Stockholm attack, Swedish anti-terror police were even reportedly pelted with stones.

** Elsewhere in Sweden, groups of migrants continue to commit rape in historic numbers.  In one particular instance, two Arab migrants that raped a Swedish woman throughout an entire night still managed to avoid deportation from Swedish authorities.

** In Germany, the Federal Crime Police Office has released a report which describes a three-fold increase in migrant-related crimes in 2016, as compared to 2015.  Additionally, the German Central Register of Foreign Nationals has documented more than 1,500 cases of migrant minors being married off to adult spouses, including 361 migrants under the age of 14.  The majority of these child brides came from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

** Elsewhere in Germany, multiple bombs targeted a soccer club’s travel bus.  One of the players was seriously injured.  In a separate instance, a terrorist plot to attack Berlin was thwarted by police.  A “man in his mid-twenties from North Africa” was arrested in a refugee home in Borsdorf.  Surprised?

** Speaking of refugee homes, Somali migrants in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, who have only been in Germany for two weeks, demolished their German-provided living quarters due to a shortage of German-provided PlayStations and German-provided spending money.

Next week beckons.

This week in jihad history: 

** The April 14, 2014 Nyanya bombing in Nigeria, killing 88 people and wounding more than 200.

** The April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, killing three people and wounding more than 260.

** The April 12, 2002 Mahane Yehuda market bombing in Israel, killing six people and wounding more than 100.

** One day prior: the April 11, 2002 Ghriba synagogue bombing in Tunisia, killing 19 people and wounding 30.

** One day prior: the April 10, 2002 Yagur Junction bombing, also in Israel, killing six Israeli soldiers, one Israeli civilian, and wounding 19 more.

One Week, Five Terror Attacks: Beginnings of Another ‘Summer of Terror’?

PJ Media, by Patick Poole, April 8, 2017:

By the end of July last year, I noted that from the time of the Pulse dance club attack in Orlando that killed 49 Western countries were seeing ISIS-inspired terror attacks at the rate of one every 84 hours – a statistic that was picked

The pace slackened slightly over the next two months, but last summer I termed the “Summer of Terror”:

And now just hours before the beginning of the Christian Holy Week and a few days before Jewish Passover, the events of this past week may indicate that we’re seeing the beginnings of yet another “Summer of Terror” comparable to last year or perhaps surpass.

Just this week we’ve seen terror attacks in:

  • St. Petersburg, Russia
  • Vancouleurs, France
  • Queanbeyan, Australia
  • Ofra, West Bank
  • Stockholm, Sweden

Islam and the Jihad in London

Security forces respond to the attacks outside Parliament in London, March 22, 2017. (Reuters photo: Stefan Wermuth)

It’s not non-Western. It’s anti-Western.

National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy, March 25, 2017:

It was a careful choice of words, Bernard Lewis being nothing if not careful. In 2004, the West audibly gasped when its preeminent scholar of Islam famously told the German newspaper Die Welt,“Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century,” if not sooner.

Listen carefully. He did not say that Muslims will be the majority population in what is still recognizably Europe. No, Professor Lewis said “Europe will be Islamic.

We are not talking about Muslims here. We are talking about Islam. Lots of individual Muslims desire peaceful coexistence, even assimilation. But Islam’s aim is to prevail. So, yet again this week, Lewis’s foreboding has been brought to the fore by a jihadist mass-murder attack, this time in London.

As we go to press, five innocent people are dead after Khalid Masood, a terrorist acting on unambiguous scriptural commands to war against non-Muslims, rammed his rental Hyundai SUV into dozens of pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, many of them tourists taking in the iconic views of Parliament. About 50 people suffered injuries, some of them grave, so the death toll may yet rise.

Masood, a burly 52-year-old weightlifter with a long criminal record that included vicious stabbings, then crashed the car through the gate at Westminster Palace, home of the West’s most venerable democratic legislature. He alighted brandishing two long knives, which he used to kill Keith Palmer, a police officer who, pursuant to British policy, was unarmed despite being assigned to provide security at one of the world’s foremost terror targets. Masood was finally shot dead by a protection officer attached to England’s defense minister.

There immediately began the ritual media pondering over Masood’s motive. Yes, what could it possibly have been?

I’m going to stick with the patently obvious.

Masood was born as Adrian Russell Ajao on Christmas Day, 1964, in Kent county, just outside London. His 17-year-old single mother remarried two years later, and he was known as Adrian Elms (his stepfather’s surname) until converting to Islam when he was about 40. Prior to that point, while fathering three children with his wife, he had several arrests, some for violent attacks. During at least one of the resulting stints in prison, like many inmates, he began indoctrination into Islam.

Between 2004 and 2005 came the critical transition: the formal conversion, marriage to a Muslim woman, and relocation to Saudi Arabia (you know, be our “ally” against terrorism). For five years, Masood was immersed in the kingdom’s Wahhabism — fundamentalist Islam rooted in scriptural literalism. He became an English language-teacher working for the Saudi government.

Masood returned to England from Jeddah about seven years ago. By the time of Wednesday’s attack on Westminster Bridge, he had seamlessly gravitated to Birmingham, a city increasingly enveloped by sharia enclaves that, to varying degrees, have become “no-go zones” for non-Muslims and agents of the state, including police.

There is diversity in Islam, including millions of Muslims who adhere only to its spiritual elements or see themselves as more culturally than doctrinally Islamic. But when we speak of Islam, as opposed to Muslims, we are not speaking about a mere religious belief system. We are talking about a competing civilization — that is very much how Islam self-identifies. It has its own history, principles, values, mores, and legal system.

Islam, thus understood, is not non-Western. It is anti-Western.

Like the conversion of Masood, the conversion of Birmingham has been a function of this defining Islamic attribute. Individual Muslims may assimilate, but Islam doesn’t do assimilation. Islam does not melt into your melting pot. Islam, as Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna proclaimed, is content with nothing less than political, cultural, and civilizational dominance.

As Soeren Kern relates in a comprehensive Gatestone Institute report on Islam in Britain, the metamorphosis of Birmingham, along with several other U.K. population centers, signifies this resistance. When the Islamic presence in a Western community reaches a critical mass, Islam’s hostility to Western mores and demands for sharia governance result in non-Muslim flight. Marriages between Muslims resident in the Western community and Muslims overseas tend to result in childbirth rates and household growth that dwarfs that of the indigenous population. Arranged, intra-familial, and polygamous marriages, endorsed by Islamic mores, drastically alter the fabric of communities in short order. Birmingham, in particular, has been ground zero of “Operation Trojan Horse,” a sharia-supremacist scheme to Islamize the public schools.

Kern repeats an account of life in “inner-city Birmingham” by the wife of a British clergyman, first published by Standpoint in 2011. She explained how the neighborhood in which she’d lived for four years had become a “police no-go zone,” in which the large number of newly arrived Somali immigrants now approached that of Pakistanis already resident. Then she recalled her husband’s encounter with an immigrant who had just arrived from Belgium — on an EU passport, like an increasing number of Muslims these days. The migrant was surprised when the clergyman asked why he had chosen to move into their neighborhood. Finally, he replied, “Everybody knows. Birmingham—best place in Europe to be pure Muslim.”

The memory moved the clergyman’s wife to a salient insight:

Well, there must be many places in Europe where Muslims are entirely free to practice their faith, but I suspect there are few places in which they can have so little contact with the civic and legal structure of a Western state if they choose.

To a London reader, born and bred with multiculturalism, I know that my stories may come across as outlandish and exaggerated. . . . When I recently told a friend how a large Taliban flag fluttered gaily on a house near St Andrew’s football stadium for some months, her cry of “Can’t you tell the police?” made me reflect how far many of our inner cities have been abandoned by our key workers: our doctors and nurses drive in from afar, the police, as mentioned before, have shut down their stations and never venture in unless in extremis — they and ambulance crews have been known to be attacked — even the local imam lives in a leafier area.

It is in that milieu that Khalid Masood made his decision, rented an SUV, and drove to Westminster Bridge.

Naturally, the Islamic State terror network (ISIS) took credit for the atrocity, as it has been wont to do since issuing its plea that Muslims conduct attacks “in place” — i.e., against the Western societies where they live. Western leaders have been content to accept these claims, at least as inspirational, if not operational. It is easier to indulge the fiction that ISIS catalyzes jihadism then to ask what catalyzed ISIS.

But the remorseless fact is that before ISIS and al-Qaeda and the Khomeini revolution and Hezbollah and the Blind Sheikh and the Brotherhood and Khalid Masood, there was the single thing that unites them all. There was Islam.

Western political and opinion elites remain willfully blind to this. They cannot help but project onto Islamic beliefs and practices their own progressive pieties — which take seriously neither religion nor the notion that there is any civilization but their own.

In their minds, and therefore ingrained in the media’s coverage, is the notion that a Muslim community is just like any other community. Same with the mosque — it is just a “house of worship,” no different from a church, a safe harbor from worldly concerns and hostilities. Islam, however, does not separate mosque from state; the mosque is every bit as much a center for sharia indoctrination, assimilation resistance, and anti-Western politics as it is a prayer venue. That is why al-Banna regarded the mosque and the Islamic community center commonly attached to it as the “axis” of the “movement” in every community where Islam takes hold.

The movement does not want cohabitation. It wants conquest. It starts with assimilation-resistant enclaves that nurture sharia supremacism today and thereby breed the jihadists of tomorrow. This week, it took the campaign to Westminster Bridge.

Two must watch videos by Tom Trento on Islamic jihad and Muhammad

LONDON JIHAD ATTACK…ISLAM V. ISLAMISM
Published on Mar 25, 2017 by theunitedwest

Tom Trento explains how the London jihad attack on March 22, 2017 indicates the beginning of the beginning of increased low-tech, Muslim jihad attacks in the West. The Islamic State along with Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are developing an operational methodology through the use of the internet that unleashes jihadi fighters in the streets of civilized Western countries. Trento maintains that the West, in particular, America must work ceaselessly to delegitimize the ideological foundation of the comprehensive political/theocratic system we know as Islam. In order to effectively name the enemy and fight the enemy at its core, it is essential to clear up the confusion between the use of the terms, Islam and Islamism. Until that controversial issue is resolved, the West is at a deadly disadvantage in this epic battle between good and evil.
