Paris in the Spring — With Automatic Weapons Fire

Update: According to The Mirror, a second policeman has died from his wounds.

Michael Horowitz reports on Twitter that ISIS is claiming responsibility for the Paris attack (hat tip Vlad).

There was a terrorist attack on the Champs-Élysées in Paris this evening. One policeman was killed and another wounded, and one gunman was killed. It is thought that a second attacker may have been involved, and is still at large.

It must have been an extremist from the Front National who did it. I mean, France has strict gun control, so who else would be carrying a Kalashnikov on the streets of Paris except an FN guy?

Below is a report from The Daily Mail:

BREAKING NEWS: ‘At least two’ Kalashnikov-wielding terrorists kill one police officer and wound another in attack on Paris’s Champs Elysees

A police officer was shot dead and another seriously wounded by two Kalashnikov-wielding gunmen on the Champs Elysees in central Paris tonight.

French police said that the incident was probably a ‘terrorist act’ and the world famous avenue was on lockdown by 9pm.

Heavily armed officers had flooded the area and a third individual – believed to be the killer – was killed, according to police sources.

Reports suggest ‘at least’ two people were involved in the attack which took place as presidential candidates took part in a TV debate nearby before Sunday’s election.

The Interior Ministry spokesman said on BFM TV the officers were deliberately targeted and the police union added that one of them was shot dead while sat in a car at a red light.

There are reports the second gunman who remains at large has fired shots in a shopping mall. Police in body armour and riot gear are on scene.

A witness identified only as Ines told BFM that she heard a shooting, saw a man’s body on the ground and the area was quickly evacuated by police.

The attack came three days before the first round of balloting in France’s tense presidential election.

It comes just two days after police arrested two men in southern Marseille with weapons and explosives who were suspected of preparing an attack to disrupt the first-round of the presidential election on Sunday.

  1. What’s the term that we hear in the films that explains how recalcitrant individuals are dealt with? Extreme prejudice? Well, if France wishes to survive as a white, Christian western country, they are going to have to, as a nation, embrace that concept towards muslims and any lefties who happen to get in the way. And that applies to just about every white, Christian western country. It won’t be pleasant but it is necessary.

    • Well, it’s too early in the game for me to describe my strategy for dealing with these reprobates without getting [redacted].

      I will merely say that the West needs to understand these people are here to replace our way of life and needs to adopt medieval attitudes toward these people.

      • There are 15,000 ‘flagged’ Islamic ‘extremists’ in France. Known to the authorities- this was one of them.

        Now any hope of survival starts with rounding up all of them and putting them in detention camps – no due process.

        You’ll know France is serious when this happens – until then these will happen more frequently.

        • They should go after their families as well.

          The jihadis may not care about their lives, but a few might think twice if they knew their actions could expose their family to privation.

          The rationale would be aiding and abetting a jihadis. Citizens of France on the dole have a duty to report this to the authorities, not shelter it.

  2. So the militia lost one of its own in the firefight, but was a clear winner having achieved early fire superiority, a lesson brought back by the other element member, as he rejoins his platoon and is debriefed by an assistant S3 from the militia battalion HQ. Advances in tactical operations don’t just happen, they are developed from battlefield experience.

    It worked in Beirut; there’s no reason it won’t work in Paris.

    • And once Macron is elected, the militia can be brought up to division strength in short order, and secure rest and refit areas established.

      • I thought Melenchon was the annoited candidate for accelerating the fall of France and rise of Fralgeria…

        • No, he is just the Bernie Sanders of France; a real, mad-dog rabid foaming-at-the-mouth socialist to help frame the Overton Window. Macron was a central banker and is a globalist and migrant-lover; a useful tool of the elites. Probably every bit as crazy, but more photogenic and young enough to get the snowflake vote.

          • One would think that by now the French would have had enough of this bull manure, and be 90% behind Le Pen, but no…

            Obviously they want more of the same, like Holland.

  3. It’s true, isn’t it, that depraved Islamic killers from mid-east battlefields have been allowed to return to their “home countries” and are being allowed to roam around? So, really, *what can Europe expect*?? To me, it’s rather obvious (but I’m just a simple guy).

    • They’re back in Minnesota, too, but no one talks about it. Little Somalias continue to spring up like poison mushrooms through a once-beautiful state.

      But perhaps the stage was set generations ago when all those Scandinavian immigrants flooded the area and proceeded to make a verdant, prosperous Little Sweden. Perhaps they will come to the same sad end the real Sweden is even now approaching. If they manage to avoid the same fate, it won’t be for lack of trying to be so very inclusive of people who hate them.

      • Out here, the Somalis stand out like feces on a snowy lawn; if it ever gets to the point of civil unrest and war, they will not stand a chance. Most of the populace here is armed or heavily armed, and lack of will isn’t a problem like it is in Europe; more like biding one’s time until the gloves can come off.

      • It’s the majority Lutheran Church who brings them in Why don’t the Lutherans try to control their church. All the money comes from the federal government, not donations of Lutherans. But the Lutherans never object to what their church is doing.

  4. in this upcoming election the French people have a choice between grabbing the life preserver or the anchor. I think their love of the dole will make them choose the anchor.

  5. Then again, how did he got an automatic weapon? Why oh why they do not obeying the law?

  6. I feel a song coming on…
    “I love Paris in the springtime, I love Parsi in the fall,
    I love Paris in the springtime AK47’s and all…”

    It rhymes and quite catchy.

  7. “Barbarity and cowardice struck Paris last night, as they also recently struck elsewhere in Europe in Berlin, Stockholm, in London,” Caeneuve [the Prime Minister of France] said after a meeting of its security council on Friday. “The whole of Europe is being targeted, because it represents the values and ideals of peace” (The Guardian, UK).

    If the Guardian is reporting this correctly, someone in Paris hasn’t been doing their homework! Poor student! Monsieur Caeneuve, please do some basic reading, some basic investigation, and then come back and tell us whether you believe Europe is being attacked because we “represent the values and ideas of peace”.

    The motto of an educational establishment I once worked for was “The truth shall set us free”. I remembered this a few moments ago.

  8. “He was last arrested in February after reports he had been talking about assaulting police. Knives and masks were found at his home but were not considered sufficient evidence to detain him further and he was released, Molins said” the UK Guardian tells us.

    Talking? Knives and masks? Nah, just pretending. He liked dressing up.
