Relax. He probably just wanted to engage in some “interfaith dialogue” with the police officers whose photos he was carrying. What else could it possibly be? You’re not some kind of greasy Islamophobe, are you?
Police officers in the 18th arrondissement of Paris arrested a 60-year-old Moroccan man who appeared in front of their police station armed with a knife, chanted verses from the Quran and had pictures of officers who worked at the station in his possession.
The 60-year-old appeared in front of the police station in the heavily migrant-populated neighbourhood in the early afternoon on Monday. The Moroccan-born French citizen is said to have stood in the entrance to the police station and to have thrown a 15cm long kitchen knife wrapped in newspaper toward officers before being arrested, French broadcaster BFMTV reports.
After being taken into custody police found that the man, who they claimed seemed mentally disturbed, had in his possession two photographs of uniformed officers who worked at the station in his bag.
Police have so far not released any possible motive for the incident, but police across France have been on high alert for months due to a number of attacks and attempted attacks against police officers by radical Islamic terrorists….
