Nice Attack: French Prime Minister Says ‘Learn to Live’ With Terrorism - After 84 Die
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls and other French politicians appear to be sounding a defeatist note in France’s war against terror.
Senator Nathalie Goulet called the Islamist massacre are a “nightmare” , despite the “secure” nature of Nice.
Sen Goulet remarked “The question is: are we able to prevent it. And my answer would be, unfortunately no.”
To many, this is indeed unfortunate – coming from a leading politician in charge of the Foreign Affairs and security Committee.
Worse was the extraordinary choice of words by Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who said that France must “learn to live with terrorism”.
The obvious response for many in his country and around the world was that 84 victims of terror did not get that opportunity. The parents of ten slaughtered children must be stunned to hear such weakness from France’s national leaders.
Wahhabbist terror attacks have swept across continental Europe after Angela Merkel invited in Syrian “refugees”, mostly single males of fighting age. Simplistic analyses that found some attackers, like those in Belgium, were ‘home-grown’, ignore the effect of radicalisation of existing young Muslim men by a wave of Wahhabist, Isis-sympathising entrants.
During the Brexit referendum, “security” was touted by the Remain side as a boon to Britain from combined EU intelligence sharing – which can and will continue anyway – while there is now systematic evidence of the appeasement of terror, rapes and crimes from an imported block of young, fighting-age Wahabbist males, and evidence of the radicalisation of existing Muslim youth in France.
Last week it was revealed that the rapes and sexual assaults in Cologne on New Years’ Eve by Muslim men had been wildly underreported and suppressed by the German government and police. There were in fact thousands, not hundreds, of sexual assaults, of victims and of perpetrators.
Hand-wringing over Islamist slaughter by France’s Prime Minister will not go down well in that grief-stricken nation. The United Kingdom and Israel, two countries who faced periods of sustained terror attacks – Britain from the IRA and Israel from Palestinian terror groups – never told their populations they would have to “live with” [sic] it.
The world praying for France will soon look at the political effects of sustained massacres and the French socialist government’s apparent appeasement. Marine Le Pen, leader of the hard-right Front Nationale party, has called for her nation to “Frexit” the EU. Given the ludicrous open-border Schengen policy within the EU, Le Pen is likely to benefit further in forthcoming French elections. Austria too may receive a hard-right President who has demanded an end to the EU migrant policy, and stated that Austria will not stomach further Wahhabist migrants imposed on them by Angela Merkel’s disaster. Norbert Hofer narrowly lost the second round of the Presidential election there earlier this year, but after widespread miscounting of votes, Austria’s Supreme Court disallowed the result and Hofer will get another chance in October, when the election is re-run. It is conceivable that the weak-willed response to the slaughter in Nice makes a Frexit and an Ausexit more likely.
