The mujahid who attacked police at the Louvre this morning has now been identified as an Egyptian named Abdallah E.-H. In addition to his machete, he was carrying paint bombs in his backpacks. Evidently he intended to modify some of the works of art in the Louvre to suit his own aesthetic tastes. Or maybe he planned to hide the filthy kafir nude slut statues with a coat of paint.
