He also had jihad propaganda on his computer. “These are downloadable images that are a few weeks old. Not the worst type of images, but rather bellicose slogans,” said prosecutor Alex Perrin. “It shows he had an appreciation of that but it does not prove he had links with terrorist organizations.” Perrin added: “He reportedly shouted ‘Allah is great’, which suggests some sort of religious element.”
So let’s see. He drove his car at troops. He was screaming “Allahu akbar.” He had jihad propaganda on his computer. But he won’t be charged with terrorism, because French authorities, like officials all over the West, ignore the significance of the repeated calls by the Islamic State and other jihad groups for Muslims in the West to attack military personnel and civilians. When these attacks happen, they’re dismissed as isolated incidents, which they are. But they’re also part of a global jihad, which authorities refuse to admit exists.
“Man who drove car at French troops not charged with terrorism,” Reuters, January 3, 2016:
A man who drove a car at troops guarding a French mosque was placed under investigation on charges of attempted manslaughter on Sunday, the local prosecutor said, but investigators said they ruled out terrorism for now.
They said the 29-year-old Frenchman of Tunisian descent seemed to have acted alone in “a fit of anger” and did not appear to be linked to terrorist groups.
The driver, unemployed for several months, rammed his car into a group of four soldiers in a car park outside a large mosque in the southeastern town of Valence on Friday afternoon, investigators said.
“He explained that when he parked his car in front of the mosque and saw the soldiers, he got the urge to ram into them because French troops are killing civilians in Syria,” Valence prosecutor Alex Perrin told Reuters.
“He doesn’t claim to be part of an Islamist movement,” the prosecutor said. “On the face of it, this seems like an isolated act.”…
Just pay no attention to that global jihad. It was an isolated act. A huge international jihad group has called for Muslims to murder French civilians? Never mind that! It was an isolated act!
