Islam’s Violent Assault on Democracy

Islam’s Violent Assault on Democracy

by Michael Copeland

Islam uses violence. That is a given. It is its modus operandi. Part of this violence is directed against democracy, the “man-made law” that Islam instructs Muslims to despise — “Man-Made Law Go To Hell,” says the placard.

Take, for instance, the recent demonstration in defence of free speech in Sweden. In an action that is perfectly legal, a Koran was set on fire. Within a short time, thanks to Western-invented mobile telephones, a crowd of Muslims, many unemployed and therefore available, was summoned to respond. They did so by burning tyres and cars, smashing windows, and hurling projectiles at not only police, but also fire service and ambulance personnel.

“We have an ongoing violent riot. We do not have the situation under control and it is worrying in the whole area,” Rickard Lundqvist, press spokesperson for the police in Malmö, told SVT.

Swedish police were outnumbered. They were obliged to admit defeat.

…after a risk assessment, the authority has concluded that the threat posed by violent Muslim groups is so extensive that the security of the demonstrators cannot be guaranteed or that third parties and property are not subjected to Muslim hate attacks.

Reprehensibly, and in a failure to uphold the law, they decided to move the goalposts: they announced that they were banning Islam-critical demonstrations in ALL places.

What is going on here? This is step-by-step capitulation. In effect, Swedish police are now administering Sharia law (where Koran-burning is prohibited). This calls to mind the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum”, which set out their plan:

“a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”

Note “by their hands”. Swedish police have sabotaged democracy “by their hands”. Islamic mission accomplished.

Many Western governments are following the same pattern. Criminal riots in Paris cleared the way for Islamic No-Go Zones. The Manningham riots in Bradford UK were organised to establish that No-Go Zone. The carefully planned New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Cologne were an attack on Western mores, Western dress, and the Christian calendar.

What reporters fail to draw attention to is that these “riots” are organised. They glibly say that they have been “triggered” by some Western action. No. They are INSTRUCTED in the mosques. The “Day of Rage” is a standard Islamic response, a show of force designed to intimidate the governing authorities into compliance with Islamic demands. A classic case was the Day of Rage outside the Danish Embassy in London. This was not “triggered” by cartoons of Mohammed in Danish newspapers. As this writer explained in “And Take Their Wives as War Booty”:

The Beheading Plot Thickens

In the last few days there has been interesting news about the beheading of a French schoolteacher by a Chechen mujahid last Friday. It seems that the schoolteacher, Samuel Paty, was reported to the police for distributing pornographic images after he showed a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Mohammed to his middle-school class.

But it gets even more interesting: the girl who told her father what happened in class to wasn’t even present the day the Motoon was shown. She simply passed on rumors of the event, which she claimed to have witnessed.

The video below is a news report on the police interrogation of Samuel Paty. Many thanks to Oz-Rita and MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Behold the Fundament of the Prophet!

The video below shows outraged reactions to the display of hundreds of Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Mohammed’s posterior in a public place in France. Someone — possibly a multitude of someones — went to a lot of trouble to blaspheme the Prophet and offend Muslims, in response to last week’s beheading of the schoolteacher Samuel Paty.

A Conspiracy to Behead

Here’s the latest update on the execution of the blasphemous infidel schoolteacher in Paris last Friday.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Le Figaro:

The assassination of Samuel Paty: A parent of a pupil and the assailant exchanged messages before the attack

These exchanges are believed to have been on the message server, WhatsApp.

by Le Figaro and AFP
October 20, 2020

The pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the professor assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages by telephone with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack, AFP learned Tuesday from a source close to the case.

These exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added this inside source, confirming news from BFMTV, without giving specifics as to their content.

The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended. The latter, who is in the 4th year, was, indeed, part of a class in which Samuel Paty gave a course on freedom of expression on 6 October, but she was absent that day according to a source close to the case.

On 12 October he had disseminated a new video on YouTube targeting the teacher, in which the militant Islamist Abdelhakim Sefrioui appeared with him. The two men were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in this anti-terrorist investigation, along with 14 other persons, including five students.

The Thug Got What He Deserved

Yesterday a French schoolteacher was beheaded on the street in Paris by a man who shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during the attack (see the New York Post report). The killer, who was shot dead by police, is said to have been outraged that the teacher had shown a Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoon to his class, which included Muslims.

The following video, recorded by a prominent French imam, is allegedly what inspired the decapitation of the teacher. If the schoolgirl in the video is correct, the blasphemous image the teacher showed his class depicted the prophet with no clothes on. Assuming that is in fact the case, the picture may have been a panel from the special comic book series published by Charlie Hebdo in 2013, “La Vie de Mahomet”.

The Exploitation of Turkish Nationalism in the Armenian-“Azerbaijani” War

The essay below was originally published by World Geostrategic Insights in a slightly different form.

The Exploitation of Turkish Nationalism in the Armenian-“Azerbaijani” War

by David Davidian

As the signal-to-noise ratio decreases in the reporting of events surrounding the September 27 Azerbaijani assault on the Armenian-inhabited region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a much more surreptitious current has received virtually no reporting: Iran. Influential think tanks generate their well-crafted equivocation and prevarication, never really following the evidence, and keeping readers cleverly occupied and furious at claims such as “there have been some reports of Jihadists being recruited by and transported to the region by Turkey,” when it is not only clear they have been recruited, with videos of scores being slaughtered by Armenian forces and transcripts of radio transmissions in Arabic suspiciously ignored.

After last July’s border flare-up, with its display of gross Azerbaijani military incompetence, Turkey proclaimed active support for Azerbaijan. Within days of the flare-up’s subsiding, Turkey began war games in Azerbaijan on Armenia’s borders. Turkey never brought home its advisors, trainers, or equipment. Turkey actively recruited and transported Libyan and Syrian Jihadists over Georgian airspace into Azerbaijan to act as cannon fodder in place of Azerbaijan soldiers. One need only peruse flightradar24’s archives to verify this activity. Turkey’s F-16s and AWACS have participated in fighting Armenians. On September 30, the Turkish military assumed control of Azerbaijan’s Air Force. On October 10, an elite force of some two hundred Turkish soldiers attacked an Armenian town many hours after the recent humanitarian cease-fire was to have commenced. Turkish soldiers are embedded within the Azerbaijani army and its command and control.

Rather than deter Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman designs, some regional and world powers appear to have used his Nazi-like dreams in their own interests. Just as Jihadists that are fighting against Syria’s Bashar al-Assad can be useful idiots in the short-term, Turkey has been directly encouraged twice to increase its recent expansionist actions. The first was when US President Trump gave Erdogan the green light to enter Northern Syria, which is now under Turkish occupation. The second was when US Secretary of State Pompeo described the current Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict as one over real estate, interpreted by the Turks as another green light. Without even mentioning Turkish actions against Armenians, NATO’s official website posted, “Turkey is a valued NATO Ally” in its report on NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg’s October 5 visit to Turkey. This comes on the heels of Erdogan’s vow, in a July 14 governmental address, “to complete what their ancestors began, this time in the Caucasus,” Erdogan was referring to the 1915 Turkish genocide of the Armenians.

The last time rabid Turkish nationalism was used to such an extent was in the lead-up to and during the First World War and British backing of Arab nationalism to dismantle the Ottoman Caliphate. One outcome of such virulent Turkish nationalism was the genocide of the Armenians, as they were in the way of a Pan-Turkic Empire. Does anybody care if Erdogan proclaims Jerusalem as his city? Apparently not, as Israel tolerates such outbursts along with Turkey’s anti-Semitism.

However, it doesn’t appear that the grand prize is eliminating the Armenians, but rather dragging Iran into a confrontation, probably with Turkey. There have been several reports of Azerbaijani UAVs and shells falling in Iran. Of particular interest is that on October 7, Azerbaijani troops attempted to provoke Armenians into firing into Iran. Many hundreds of Azerbaijani troops purposely placed themselves in a position where Armenian artillery would violate the Iranian frontier. The Azerbaijani soldiers were trapped between Armenian forces and the Iranian border and were decimated by the hundreds. The Armenians urged Iran not to allow Azerbaijan troops to escape into Iran. With northwestern Iran populated with Azerbaijani-speaking Iranians and the Iranian military on high alert along its entire border with Azerbaijan, Iran could be dragged into this conflict. It is no secret that not only has Israel been arming Azerbaijan with well over $5B in high technology weaponry, but Amnesty International said on October 6 that Israeli-made cluster bombs are being used against civilians by Azerbaijan.

How Iranian Belligerence May Be Driving Middle East Recognition of Israel

In the following guest-post, NorseRadish examines the underlying motivations of Arab states in the Persian Gulf for signing the recent Trump-brokered peace deal with Israel.

How Iranian Belligerence may be Driving Middle East Recognition of Israel

by NorseRadish

Recent overtures by Muslim Middle East nations such as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are highlighting a not-so-subtle shift in regional pan-Arab unity. Just the overflight of Jordan and Saudi Arabia by El Al flight 971 from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi represents a significant departure from decades of previous non-recognition of the Jewish state. All of which beggars substantial questions regarding the drivers of these unprecedented events.

Less well-known to those unfamiliar with the intrigues and machinations of Middle East politics is Israel’s unstated policy of general retribution which is intended to discourage aggression by its unfriendly neighbors. Commonly referred to as the “Samson Option”, it is a promise of catastrophic regional retaliation should the Jewish state experience even a single attack that uses weapons of mass destruction.

This unsettling policy can be seen as a direct response to Ayatollah Khomeini’s threat of annihilation that was posed in his 1980 Qom speech. “We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah,” said the Iranian patriarch. “I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam remains triumphant in the rest of the world.” Such an implicit and suicidal threat against Israel was not taken lightly, as later events would make known.

Mordechai Vanunu, an Israeli former nuclear technician, revealed details of Israel’s nuclear weapons program to the British press in 1986. Previously they had neither been confirmed nor denied, and this unwanted airing of Israel’s offensive might represented a tectonic shift in the strategic balance of Middle Eastern military forces. Towards that end, Israel has taken its own steps towards securing its national interests.

One of the more prominent events in this regard was Israel’s 1981 bombing of the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq. Despite speculation about its efficacy, “Operation Opera” wasn’t the only preemptive strike of its kind. Also in this same category was the 2007 attack in Syria of the Al Kibar construction site. Known as “Operation Orchard”, the target was a facility that bore many hallmarks of a North Korean reactor design. Perhaps far more interesting was the ability of Israel’s air force to carry out this strike with almost total impunity. It appears that Israeli warplanes had safely returned to base before Syria became fully aware of the destruction in the Deir ez-Zor region.

Even now, the 2010 Stuxnet virus attack is still portrayed incorrectly. From a September 2020 article:

The Israelis then infected Iranian computers with the worm, which in turn ordered about 1,000 centrifuges to speed up so fast that they destroyed themselves.

This is a drastic oversimplification of events. The virus was so large that it has been described as a two-part construction consisting of a “warhead” and “delivery vehicle”. Its massive size rendered it unable to be transmitted via email and required it to be implanted onsite with a flash drive or other mass memory device.

After introduction, it distributed itself and took up multiple residences in printer storage buffers and other bulk memory caches. All the while, this virus remained dormant and gave no sign of its presence. Its sophistication was such that, when activated, facility monitoring screens were mimicked so that operators only saw “green” conditions, even as the gas centrifuges were being placed in malfunctioning states. This did not merely involve their being operated at overly high speeds. Instead, these delicately balanced mechanisms were periodically run above and below optimal rotational rates, thereby causing excessive wear on their mechanical bearings.

The intervals during which this happened were spaced by full weeks in order to minimize any chance of detection. As a consequence, such excursions outside of normal operating conditions were allowed only for relatively short periods and then returned to nominal speeds. The upshot being that damage was done gradually and in a cumulative manner to the point, when finally detected, the harm was so decisive that these complex assemblies were far beyond simple repair.

Sweden is a Haven for the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe

Al-Ikhwan Al-Muslimeen, more commonly known as the Muslim Brotherhood, is the Salafist organization behind CAIR and other jihad groups in the USA. In 1991 the Ikhwan issued the infamous Explanatory Memorandum, which became public during the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Amazingly enough, European countries have begun to crack down on the Muslim Brotherhood. But not Sweden — not yet.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Ledarsidorna:

Pressure increases on Islamic Relief in Europe — Sweden still a free zone

Europe’s dominant countries and economies are now increasing pressure and restrictions on the Muslim Brotherhood’s support organization, Islamic Relief. Sweden though is going its own way and appears to be giving the MB’s front and network organizations a free zone.

The MB’s network and front organizations are currently under strong pressure. In Sweden, the pressure, especially from associate professors Aje Carlbom and Magnus Ranstorp, as well as the analyst Peder Hyllengren, has become so strong that the student union, Ibn Rushd, is now making changes in its statutes and has removed one of its paragraphs that formally binds it with the MB’s structure. Personal connections with the MB, however, remain for the time being, as far as is known.

Without this external pressure, this would not have occurred. Nor did the Education Council, which is responsible for giving out government grants to the study association, react earlier, despite having ten years to identify the connections. The action follows an earlier known pattern from the MB’s network organizations — It is only when they themselves become convinced of the facts that they carry out any adjustments.

Participating in a Terrorist Criminal Association

Prompted by the Charlie Hebdo terror trial in France, Michael Copeland sends this refresher course on the inherent criminality of Islam.

Participating in a Terrorist Criminal Association

by Michael Copeland

The fourteen defendants in the Charlie Hebdo murders trial face charges of participating in a terrorist criminal association. In France assisting a crime is itself a crime, like “aiding and abetting” and conspiracy in English law.

The two murderers of the Charlie Hebdo staff declared that they were acting for Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, and for the Islamic State. Those accused of helping may possibly be shown to have been members of similar organisations. It may not be necessary to demonstrate membership of a known association. Merely participating with others in murder plots is probably sufficient. It is a matter of French law. Murder plots are, of course, criminal. There is no difficulty of qualifying there.

Terrorism is defined as violence in support of a political cause. Someone with mental problems who acquires a gun and goes on a fatal shooting spree would be a mass killer, and may indeed have terrorised many people, but his action does not, in law, qualify as terrorism. The political cause is a necessary component. The Charlie Hebdo killings were specifically perpetrated in the cause of Islam, in consequence of the breaking of Sharia, that is, Islamic law, and in fulfilling its penalties:

“If someone offends the Prophet, no problem, we can kill him”,

explained one of the killers. Sharia specifies death for one who insults the Prophet and authorises vigilante-style killing.

The trial will focus narrowly on the terrible events of that mass murder, and is to establish the involvement of the accused in helping it to occur. What, though, can we see if we draw further back and look at the bigger picture? How does Islam figure in all of this?

Islam is an association. It describes itself as the Ummah, the Islamic nation, a worldwide identity which supersedes citizenship of nations. Nations are a “man-made” concept, and thus something to be despised:

  • “A Muslim has no nationality except his belief.” — Sayyid Qutb
  • “The Muslim nation is one nation to the exclusion of all others” — placard
  • “If we are practicing Muslims we are above the law of the land.” — Mustafa Carroll
  • “I must have allegiance to where the Sharia says I must have allegiance.” — Anjem Choudary

Islam’s rules include “killing someone who deserves to die”, an act that carries no penalty. In other words, Islam authorises certain murders, criminal acts in the West. Islam also authorises a parent to kill his or her offspring. There is no penalty for this. Again, this is murder. Islam authorises under-age marriage — from nine lunar years, the age of eight and three quarters — and forced marriage. Both are criminal in Europe. Islam authorises multiple wives. This is criminal in Europe. Islam imposes female genital mutilation. This, too, is criminal in Europe. Islam authorises wife-beating, another crime in Europe, and rape within marriage, same again. Islam authorises slavery: a crime in the West. It is inescapable that Islam qualifies as a criminal association.

Azerbaijan’s War Against Artsakh and Armenia

Azerbaijan’s ongoing aggression against Armenia began more than a week ago, but has not been widely covered by the mainstream media. Of special interest is the fact that Turkey has funded the movement of ISIS mujahideen from Syria to the Caucasus to act as mercenaries for Azerbaijan.

Armenian Americans for Human Rights (AAHR) was founded in Massachusetts in early 2018. Its chair is David Boyajian, a number of whose essays have appeared in the past at Gates of Vienna (see the list at the bottom of this post).

Below is a press release issued yesterday by AAHR.


Map: Regions of the Caucasus (See Note 6)

AAHR Calls for an Immediate End to Aggression Against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh) and Armenia

We strongly condemn the latest aggression by Azerbaijan against the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh) and the Republic of Armenia.

On Sunday morning, September 27, 2020, Azerbaijan flagrantly violated a negotiated ceasefire by launching a massive, unprovoked attack on Artsakh and Armenia.

In Azerbaijan, the NATO member Turkey has deployed and is using its own armed forces and advanced arms, including American-supplied weapons such as F-16 jets, to attack Artsakh/Armenia.

Using American-supplied weapons for other than self-defense is a grave violation of American law for which the United States must bear full responsibility.

Azerbaijan and Turkey have been deliberately targeting innocent civilians, schools, and homes in Artsakh, resulting in hundreds of deaths and injuries, including those of children.

Turkish President Erdogan and his country have no business intruding into this conflict — particularly on the side of the aggressor.

For years, Israel has been selling billions of dollars in armaments, including advanced attack drones, to Azerbaijan for use against Armenians. Israeli personnel have even fired such weapons against Armenians.

Israel is now resupplying these weapons to Azerbaijan.

This is not surprising, because Israel, which demands worldwide acknowledgement of the Holocaust, has always refused to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide committed by Turkey from 1915-1923.

Leading Jewish American organizations (ADL, AJC, AIPAC, and others) had long colluded with Turkey and Israel to deny/diminish the Armenia Genocide and/or actively defeat Armenian Genocide resolutions in the U.S. Congress[1].

For years, Israel has also been guiding Jewish writers to publish falsehoods about Armenia, Artsakh, and Armenians.

The American people and the international community will ultimately not tolerate such hypocrisy.

Consistent with American interests and values, for nearly 30 years America and the American people have generously provided economic, charitable, and political support to Armenia and Artsakh, which also have excellent relations with the European Union.

Armenia participates in NATO’s Partnership for Peace and has supported the U.S. in Afghanistan.

America, the European Union, and NATO must act now, not merely talk, to stop Azeri/Turkish aggression.

Artsakh and Armenia are democracies. Azerbaijan is headed by dictator Ilham Aliyev, and, like Turkey, imprisons political opponents and journalists.

America is now energy independent. It need not sell itself to corporate interests whose only goal is profiting from Azerbaijan’s gas and oil deposits.

Azerbaijan has threatened to bomb Armenia’s Metsamor nuclear power plant, a crime against humanity that would spread radiation throughout the world.

Turkey has now sent jihadist terrorists from Syria, Libya, and elsewhere to Azerbaijan to fight against Armenians[2].

Former ISIS commander Sayf Balud is going to Azerbaijan, courtesy of President Erdogan[3].

This continues Turkey’s practice of supporting terrorist organizations such as ISIS[4].

The U.S. State and Defense Departments as well as Congress should be embarrassed that they have long turned a blind eye to Turkey’s support for terrorists — thereby making a mockery of America’s “Global War on Terror.”

In the early 1990s, Azerbaijan deployed Afghan Mujahedin, Chechen militants, Turkish Grey Wolf neo-fascists, and others to fight Armenians.

Perhaps not surprisingly, given his financial investments in Turkey and deep ties to the corrupt Erdogan family, President Trump is ignoring Turkey’s support for terrorist factions, aggression against Armenians (and others), and illegal use of American-supplied weapons.

Similarly, the Democratic Party and its presidential nominee Joe Biden have said little about Turkish and Azeri aggression against Artsakh/Armenia. This implicitly aligns Mr. Biden and Democrats with President Trump with whom they allegedly disagree on issues involving Turkey and Erdogan.

Artsakh is Armenian

In 1921, the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and Bolsheviks used “divide and rule” tactics to place Artsakh inside Azerbaijan, even though Artsakh was Armenian and Armenians constituted 95% of the population.

More on the Meat Cleaver Jihad in Paris

I reported last weekend on the meat cleaver mujahid who attacked and seriously wounded two people outside the former offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Initially said to be an “unaccompanied minor”, it turns out that the would-be shahid is quite a bit older than the age stated on his forged identity papers.

MissPiggy has translated two articles about the incident from the German-language press. Note that under the perp’s real name, the case has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

First, from the Austrian daily Kronen Zeitung:

False Identity — Islamist assassin of Paris lied about age

September 28, 2020

In connection with last week’s Islamist-inspired knife attack in Paris, in which two journalists were seriously injured, investigators have apparently seized exciting evidence on the main suspect’s mobile phone.

The man, who officially came to France as an unaccompanied minor refugee, is said to have lied about his age and assumed a false identity. He is thought not to be 18, but 25 years old.

The investigation is said to have taken a major step forward three days after Friday’s Islamist terrorist attack with the discovery of the attacker’s likely real name. According to a report in Le Monde newspaper, the man sent a video to two people, including a woman, in which he spoke of being “on the way to the Prophet.”

Authorities know the main suspect is Hassan Ali, who was born in 2002 and is believed to be just 18 years old. According to an identity document found by the police on his mobile phone, however, the real name of the man is said to be Zaheer Hassan Mahmood, who was born in 1995 and is already 25 years old. Shortly after the attack, a photo had appeared on the internet that had raised doubts about the true age of the main suspect.

Attackers arrived via Turkey in the Schengen area

According to Le Monde, investigators are in the process of confirming the true identity as well as finding out the personal background and possible contacts of the main suspect. The man is believed to be originally from Pakistan, and entered the Schengen area via Turkey after first passing through Iran.

Terror attack planned as early as June?

At this stage, the suspect’s new surname did not appear to provide any further information about possible radicalisation. According to the police, the only thing that is certain is that Zaheer Hassan Mahmood was in fact on trial under the name Hassan Ali for carrying a prohibited weapon. He had already been caught armed with a butcher’s knife at a Paris train station in June, and not with a screwdriver, as was reported at the time. The Islamist attack took place last Friday in Paris in front of a building where the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo used to have its editorial offices. Nine suspects are now in police custody, including the main Pakistani suspect. The victims of the attack were a man and a woman who work for the production company Premieres Lignes.

The second article is from the Austrian weekly Wochenblick:

Meat Cleaver Jihad in Paris

Yesterday a Pakistani mujahid went on a jihad rampage on the street in front of the former offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, wounding two people. The incident is described as a “stabbing attack”, and the weapon used is reported to have been a “butcher’s knife” or “machete”, but based on the photo below, it looks more like a meat cleaver.

Knife attack in Paris: The lives of the two victims “not in danger”

September 25, 2020

The two victims of the knife attack which took place Friday in the 11th arrondissement are two employees of the France 2 magazine “Cash Investigation” working for the production company Premieres Lignes (First Lines), located in the former premises of Charlie Hebdo. Their lives “are not in danger”, stated the Prime Minister.

Among the wounded are two employees of the Premieres Lignes Television, the production company that produces notably “Cash Investigation”, declared the host of the broadcast magazine France 2, Elise Lucet. “I have the producers and several employees of Premieres Lignes Television on the phone […] What is confirmed to me now with certainty, is that two of our employees are wounded, a man and a woman, ho were wounded by a man on the street in front of the former premises of Charlie Hebdo,” she added.

“I heard screams”

“One of the employees saw this man running with a butcher’s knife or a machete after one of our employees who had already been wounded and was also bloody,” stated the journalist.
