The Associated Press wouldn’t dream of informing its readers about exactly what kind of “terror attack plot” this “Frenchman” was in the “advanced stages” of executing, but since Cazeneuve said there were no links “at this stage” between the November Paris jihad attacks and the ones in Brussels Tuesday, he seems to be leaving the door open for such links to be discovered upon further investigation. That makes it likely that this was yet another jihad plot, one of many in an ongoing and widening war against Europe and the U.S., and the AP has us reading tea leaves to try to figure out what exactly is going on here.
Also, this jihad plotter almost certainly does not think of himself as a “Frenchman,” even if he was born and raised in France. Location does not confer identity, much as the mainstream media assumes otherwise. This man almost certainly thinks of himself as a member of the worldwide umma, and has contempt for France and genuine Frenchman — French society, he almost certainly believes, is just so much jahiliyya, the worthless society of unbelievers. But AP will never tell you that.
“France arrests man in ‘advanced stages’ of terror attack plot,” Associated Press, March 24, 2016:
A Frenchman in the “advanced stages” of a plot to attack the country was arrested Thursday northwest of Paris, and security forces locked down the area during a major search, France’s interior minister said.
Bernard Cazeneuve said there were no links “at this stage” between the plot and the attacks against Brussels this week or Paris in November.
Cazeneuve said bomb squads were on site. The raid took place in Argenteuil, on the northern outskirts of the capital. He said the person arrested was implicated at a “high level” in the plot, but offered no details.
Witnesses told France’s i-Tele network that the immediate area had been locked down and that residents were unable to return home….
