The Red Army Faction is Dead — Long Live Antifa

The following analysis of the Red Army Faction was written by an ultra-red-diaper baby: the daughter of the communist terrorist Ulrika Meinhof, who was the “Meinhof” of the notorious Baader-Meinhof Gang.

Rembrandt Clancy has provided an introduction to the translated essay, and also an appendix containing additional translated material.

Ideologies have a powerful tendency to develop a momentum of their own and to bring forth ever new motivational drive creators who feel pressure to go one step further. Ideologies have a tendency to expand and take over more and more spheres of politics and society. All spheres of policy today are in this sense determined by ’68: be it education policy, family and gender policy; be it European policy, energy and economic policy, through to the non-existent immigration policy. The culture and subculture as well as the NGOs have been ticking until today in ’68er time. Also, the schizophrenic policy towards radical left-wing violence, be it the G20 summit in Hamburg in July of 2017 or the violent excesses against the ECB in Frankfurt in March of 2015, have to be seen in the context of the ’68er-spin. […] What must be recognised and eliminated is the worldwide “fatwa” of the genocidal mass murderer Mao Zedong against the West, against everything that is Western: against Western culture, against what Western morality is, what Western achievement is; the “fatwa” that in the sixties put so many privileged Western children on the march to blindly hate their West, to furiously destroy and attack it; precisely this “fatwa”, which for fifty years has been taking on a life of its own, raging like a lindworm throughout society and strangling the Western freedom of the individual.*

Bettina Röhl: Daughter of the Red Army Faction (RAF)

by Rembrandt Clancy

The author of the present essay was born in 1962 and is one of the twin daughters of Ulrika Meinhof (1934-1976), who still lives on under her maiden name in that other designation for the RAF, the Baader-Meinhof Gruppe (Baader-Meinhof Gang). Ulrika’s husband, Klaus Rainer Röhl, whom she divorced in 1968, was the publisher of konkret, which was the preeminent magazine animating the Extra-Parliamentary Opposition (APO) in the Bundesrepublik from the 1960s until it was shut down in 1973. Ulrike was the magazine’s one-time chief editor. She exercised considerable intellectual and propaganda influence on the radical student movement of her time, including her feminist family concept, where the personal becomes political, an axiom in her essay which also explains why women threw tomatoes at the Shah of Iran in 1967 (cf. Die Frauen im SDS oder In Eigener Sache, “The Women in the SDS or Action On Their Own Behalf”; 1968). In May of 1976 Ulrika Meinhof was found hanged in her prison cell with a makeshift device amid circumstances which, for some, remain unclarified.

Bettina Röhl studied history and is a publicist. She has written two books treating critically of the radical ’68er student movement which threatened to destabilise the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland — BRD). Her first book So macht Kommunismus Spaß! (Making Communism Fun! — 2006) deals with the history of the Left in Germany from 1949 to 1968.

In her second book, Die RAF hat euch lieb (The RAF Loves You — 2018), Bettina Röhl recounts her experiences as a child in the first-generation RAF, whose most prominent names include Horst Mahler, Gudrun Esslin and Andreas Baader. The author conveys the movement’s quasi-religious, “Marxist-Leninist-Maoist” fervour among privileged students, who, mostly children of the National Socialist generation, were capable of arson, bank robberies, bombings, kidnapping, killing and a prison break.

In the light of an essay which treats of the ever-expanding reach of ideology, the meaning of the book’s title is worth a brief remark. “The RAF Loves You” is an impersonal greeting Ulrika Meinhof wrote to her 11-year old twin daughters from Cologne-Ossendorf prison in October of 1972. With this title and the chapter dedicated to it in the book, Bettina Röhl captures the abandonment of the children, as if the mother, who addressed the twins as “comrade mice” [Genossinnen Mäuse!] had confused or fused the intimate sphere with a collective persona.

“Whether you know it or not, whether like it or not, the RAF loves you. I probably know best.” (op. cit., Kindle vers. 1.28.0. München: Random House, Chapter: Die RAF hat euch lieb, para. 12):

Introduction

The intoxicating crowd-events and the brutal highlights of the early RAF years in the Bundesrepublik still live with a special atmospheric colour in the German consciousness. Now after only two months of violent assaults of the Maoist cultural revolutionary type on Western culture, the English-speaking world read Bettina Röhl’s essay on the RAF years with almost the same vivid sense of immediacy as the Germans.

Only the type of collectivist identity has changed after five decades: “The Red Army Faction is Dead”, but “Long live Antifa”. It is as if the author writes of a time-spanning protean spirit of collectivism which preternaturally modifies its external expression to adapt to the changed external political and social circumstances of each generation. Hence Röhl speaks of a spirit of the times, a “revolutionary Zeitgeist”; a “revolution-phantasm” and a “diffuse prototype” of the revolution found in specific dictatorships.

The names of the street gangs change as do those of the identity groups; at one time it is social class, at another it is a particular race, at another a coalition of races, ethnic groups and sexual identities. Röhl’s intuition suggests the presence of a latent, transgenerational collectivist “Geist” which can only be inferred from the surface events she describes.

However, Antifa itself does have a history, or at least its name has a lineage. Its history as paramilitary strategy can be traced to the official founding of Die Antifaschistische Aktion of the Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands (KPD) on 10 July 1932 (Bernd Langer. 80 Jahre Antifaschistische Aktion, 2012, p. 3).

The Red Army Faction is Dead — Long Live Antifa

Source: Neue Zürcher Zeitung

02 June 2020

The freeing of Andreas Baader from prison fifty years ago was the beginning of the Red Army Faction (RAF). What began with revolutionary romanticism terrorised the Bundesrepublik Deutschland (BRD) for more than three decades. Radical Left-wing terror still exists today.

by Bettina Röhl

[original German language article places an image with the RAF logo here]

Who was in a fever in the seventies? Was it the RAF? Was it the German Federal authorities and politicians? Were the media overheated? Was it the society, the establishment, that chased after the terrorists? Or was it the students who were awakened by the events surrounding 1968 — that army of student disciples in the 1970s, who in the publishing sphere time and again rolled out the red carpet for the RAF?

In the Bundesrepublik [Federal Republic] of the time, the large silent majority did not side with the ’68er-movement, much less did they side with the RAF, a movement of armed struggle in West Germany. The overwhelming majority of citizens (above all the working population) felt little attraction to terror, violence, urban guerrillas and revolution; and they looked on with vexation, somewhat paralysed at the fashionable phenomenon of “terrorism”: “being high, being free and a bit of terror must be thrown in”. The silent majority were the ones to be combatted, the “bourgeois”. That is how the young pop-Communist enthusiasts saw it; those who gravitated to Che Guevara, Ho Chi Minh and more particularly to Mao Zedong as the ‘one who fundamentally transformed society’ [Umwälzer].

Especially the so-called left-wing intellectuals became, at best, semi-critical propagators of the 1968 RAF ideology; they were the subcultural and established artists, from the writer Hans Magnus Enzensberger to solicitor and singer Franz Josef Degenhardt; from theatre director Claus Peymann to Nobel Prize winner for literature Heinrich Böll. They were ubiquitous at the time with their opinions, especially in the boom-media with their circulation in the millions, such as Der Spiegel, Stern and the “Die Zeit”; but also, they were everywhere in the powerful public sector television broadcasters of the time. Also, many journalists were completely lacking in detachment and became avid reporters for the RAF. At the same time, reportage on the RAF functioned almost like a true-crime serial, presenting the public with crimes, perpetrators and the deaths almost in real time.

How Dare He?

A female politician for the Social Democrats, Assistant Mayor Elfi Scho-Antwerpes of Cologne, was groped in broad daylight by one of the culture-enrichers for whom she so assiduously provided a “welcoming culture”.

Migrant sexually assaults an SPD political icon in Cologne

By MANFRED ROUHS — It happened in broad daylight. In the middle of colourful, cosmopolitan, multi-cultural Cologne. Cologne’s assistant mayor Elfi Scho-Antwerpes was confronted with the harsh reality of a society that lacks universally accepted values. The well-known politician from Cologne did the only right thing:

I then called in policemen nearby for help. The perpetrator could be identified immediately. […] It was a man around 30, apparently with an immigrant background. The man didn’t even apologize.

When the well-known SPD representative, who was also a member of the Bundestag for a time, is walking through the cathedral city, the forces of law and order are not far away. A shout is enough, and then the access takes place.

But what should women do who are not travelling with a large entourage in the city? All they can do is call 110 and hope that help will arrive in time.

Scho-Antwerpes now hopefully realises what the policy of open borders of her party means for many women in Germany. She complains: “To experience something like this is a drastic experience, simply unpleasant. I am deeply hurt. You can’t expect such an irreverent attack.”

A Torture Chamber in a Shipping Container

The video below shows raids by Dutch police on warehouses that were allegedly used by organized criminal groups. The targeted enterprises are part of the Moroccan drug-trafficking underworld.

The police raid uncovered shipping containers that were used as prison cells and an apparent torture chamber.

Robin van O.: The man behind the underworld prison is himself longtime target of the criminals

July 7, 2020

One of the men arrested in the investigation into the underworld prison in Wouwse Plantage (Brabant) is the 40-year-old Robin van O. The sports gym owner, originally from Utrecht, was arrested in the Hague on June 22. Robin van O. is not unknown in criminal circles. He has often been identified as the right-hand man of Mustapha F., was one of the men behind the Los Pepes alliance against Ridouan Taghi, and his name surfaced in the investigation into the mysterious disappearance of June Churisan Allen.

Underworld Prison

The police discovered the warehouse with seven containers intended for torture and locking up fellow criminals through the investigation into Robin van O. That investigation began in April with the suspicion that he was involved in drug dealing and an attempted murder. According to the police, he led an existence under the radar, but financial investigation revealed that he probably used a warehouse in Wouwse Plantage. Just when the police turned their attention to the warehouse, they obtained access from another investigative team to important chat messages which the suspect sent and received with a encrypted telephone. The messages, sent via EncroChat, were intercepted live in the 26Lemont investigation, which was made public last week.

Robin van O.

That Robin van O. attempted to exist under the radar did not stop his enemies from trying to expose him. The push was so great that a special website was set up under the name crimebron.nl. Named after an old crime website, but not with the same owner as was the case back then. On the website, the sports gym owner was repeatedly linked to criminal activities. For example, according to the website, he is believed to be involved in the disappearance of June Churisan Allen, the murder of Altan Soysal, and to have ties with Mustapha F. and Karim, alias Taxi (the brother of the murdered Samir Bouvakhrichan [sic?], alias Scarface). In addition to these well-known names, many lesser-known names were mentioned of people involved in Robin van O’s organization.

Multiple Recidivist Culture-Enricher Rapes 83-Year-Old Woman

A court in the former DDR threw the book at a long-time Afghan resident, sentencing him to four years in prison for raping a senior citizen.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

What kind of country is this, when something like this is possible? An Afghan who should have been deported 21 years ago rapes an 83-year-old woman.

by Eugen Prinz

On Thursday (July 2, 2020), the Leipzig Regional Court sentenced 47-year-old Afghan Hamid A., a rejected asylum seeker, to four years in prison for rape.

The crime is hard to beat in terms of its repulsiveness, as the victim is an 83-year-old German senior citizen from Delschitz who suffers from age-related hearing loss. The senior citizen, Christiane B., went through the railway underpass near the station on her way home in the early evening of January 9. Due to her hearing impairment, she did not notice that Hamid B. was following her and waiting for a favourable opportunity.

Rape without regard to the old woman’s facial injuries

In the underpass he brutally pushed the old woman to the ground from behind. The senior citizen hit the asphalt with her face. According to the indictment, she was immediately in tremendous pain. The elderly woman’s dentures broke due to the impact.

The rejected asylum seeker, who had 2.0 g/l blood alcohol content at the time of the crime, was not interested in the pain and injuries of the elderly woman. He raped her.

Lacking intelligence and a tendency to lie

While the Afghan, who was certified in a preliminary report as “lacking intelligence” and had a tendency to lie pathologically, confessed to the crime during the police interrogation, but he suddenly claimed in court that he had only wanted to help the woman up.

The verdict is not yet final. Both the defendant and the public prosecutor’s office can appeal it within one week.

Governmental impotence that endangers citizens

If what you have read so far was bad enough, in view of decades of governmental impotence and the failure of authority, now it has become even more criminal:

Culture-Enriching Knife Murder on a Bus Full of School Children

An Afghan culture-enricher stabbed his wife to death on a bus in Bavaria. There were schoolchildren riding on the bus at the time.

Below is a description of the incident (from Politikstube, translated by MissPiggy):

The idyllic Bavarian village of 6,000 in Obergünzburg is in shock. An Afghan stabbed his ex-wife on a public bus, in front of schoolchildren and other passengers. In 2017 a demonstration was held against deportations. The Afghani already had a police record because of an earlier assault. His deportation might have saved the woman’s life. Children who were passengers on the bus and witnessed the incident can receive psychological support.

Throwing the Book at ’em, Swedish Style

Two culture-enriching “Swedish” youngsters have received sentences of three and a half and two years for the robbery and murder of a third culture-enricher. The one who received two years did not participate in the murder, according to the court, and the other one pretended to be 16 at the time of the crime to avoid a stiffer sentence. Which, knowing Sweden, might have been as much as — gasp! — seven years in detention. As it is, he will serve his draconian three-and-a-half-year sentence in juvie.

The case has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

Murder with 66 knife cuts and robbery brings 3.5 years juvenile custody for immigrant of unknown age

by Av Pettersson

In December of last year, a dead man, Rabeen Zuher Khalid, was found by passersby in Lövgärdet in Gothenburg. He had been beaten and been killed with 66 stab wounds in his head, throat and neck. Today, two young men were sentenced for the act. One for murder and robbery, the other for robbery and protecting a criminal, aggravated crime.

The younger of the two, Ayuub Mahamed Nur, with duel Somali-Swedish citizenship, and possibly 16 years of age at the time of the crime, was sentenced for murder and robbery to three and a half years in juvenile custody. The prosecutor had claimed that he was older than he stated, and that he was 18, not 16, when it happened. Concerning this the district court wrote: “In light of the margin of error regarding the medical age investigation and what else has emerged, the district court considers that the age of 19 does not appear more likely than 17 years. The district court shall thus assume the age which is most favorable to NN, and in this context that is 17 years.”

In the investigation, a letter was found where Ayuub himself wrote that he would soon be 19 years old, yet he is sentenced as a 16-year-old at the time of the murder.

[Inset:

From Migration Court judgment UM 2437-13 dated February 11 2014:

It is the asylum seeker who must prove that he is a minor.

This principle also applies to unaccompanied children.

In the first place, written evidence is relevant.

However, the asylum seeker has the burden of proof concerning his age, and if he cannot prove that he is underage, he will be considered an adult.]

The older of the two, Ibrahim Ali Mohamud, born in 1999, and for some reason a Swedish citizen, was sentenced to two years in prison for robbery and protection of a criminal, aggravated crime. He is freed of any suspicion of murder.

Pettersson wonders why the courts don’t follow the law regarding age; it is the asylum seeker who must prove his age, and if he can’t he is to be considered an adult and sentenced as an adult.

Geert Wilders on “Racism” in the Netherlands

Geert Wilders on racism: “80,000 social rental homes to asylum-seekers while native Dutch have to wait”

by Bart Reijmerink
July 1, 2020

Geert Wilders cannot tolerate that politicians believe that the Netherlands is racist to the bone. Asscher, in particular, must suffer in the debate on racism. The Netherlands is one of the most tolerant countries in Europe, so many provisions have been made for migrants, but it is still thought that the Netherlands is racist. Wilders can no longer entertain this nonsense, and he is ranting in the Tweede Kamer.

In recent weeks, people have liked to throw out terms such as “systemic racism”. For Wilders, this is incomprehensible because if the Netherlands is so institutionally racist, why do we in the Netherlands do such much for asylum seekers? According to Wilders, it is specifically the native Dutch who are discriminated against and not the foreigners. He cites here the example that foreigners should be given priority in rental housing.

Wilders on Twitter:

80,000 social rental homes went to asylum-seekers while natives on are a waiting list for years.

Don’t make the racism problem bigger than it is. And think, finally, of all the natives who are discriminated against!

Wilders also criticizes the fact that Lodewijk Asscher pictures the Netherlands as some kind of banana republic. This is simply a big lie according to Wilders. The Netherlands is far away one of the most tolerant countries in Europe. If we look at our legislation, Wilders is certainly right. There are a number of countries that sometimes act like barbarians with migrants, or countries that maintain naturalization and integration policies that are many times stricter.

African Migrant Terrorizes the Berlin S-Bahn

Last Monday a young African culture-enricher terrorized everyone, and in particular one young woman, on a suburban train in Berlin. The video below shows what happened

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following article from Politically Incorrect (also translated by MissPiggy) describes what happened on the Berlin S-Bahn:

Black Man Terrorises an Entire Train Carriage

S-Bahn Berlin, Gehrenseestraße — A dark-skinned man attacks woman with dog

Martyrdom of a young woman in Berlin’s S-Bahn — Where nobody helps!

By EUGEN PRINZ | A mobile phone video that was recorded on the 29th of June in a Berlin S-Bahn [suburban train] compartment near the Gehrenseestraße stop makes it shockingly clear that unaccompanied women in Germany have become helpless fair game. It also shows how little hope the victims have that someone will come to their aid.

The video sequence begins with pictures of a nearly empty S-Bahn train compartment. Near the front exit of the train compartment we can see M.B. kneeling. She’s kneeling because she being harassed. In desperation, she is on the ground next to her family dog. Standing in front of her is a highly aggressive black man in a red t-shirt, shouting at her and calling her names.

Cries for help are not heard

The kneeling young woman keeps calling for help, while the few people in the compartment stand around indecisively. Only one young man, with wild curly hair and wearing light brown trousers, hesitantly tries in vain to verbally appease the aggressor, who is completely out of control.

When B.M. tries to stand up again, the black man stomps back over to her and shouts: “I’m f***ing your mama!” The girl fearfully holds her hand in front of her face in anticipation of being beaten.

“Can you help me, please?”, she implores the curly-haired man. The black man insults him with the words “You bastard”. When the girl tries to create distance between herself and the black man, he shouts at her several times: “Come to me! Come on, come to me!” and “You’re nobody!”

“You’re nobody!” — (Information for a Bio-German from a asylum seeker)

Unbelievable: Burly man sneaks away, without helping

While this is happening, in the foreground of the video, we can see how one of the passengers, a burly-looking young man with a backpack and white shorts, quietly and inconspicuously moves from standing at the far right end of the compartment to the nearest exit without making any effort to help the young woman.

A few seconds later the S-Bahn stops at Gehrenseestraße station. The man with the backpack leaves the compartment without further concern about what was going on just a few meters away from him. Near the exit where the young girl is standing, the sliding door of the carriage also opens. The black man uses this opportunity to push his victim out into the open with full force. The young woman is desperate because her dog is still in the carriage. Despite the presence of the attacker, she tries to get back into the compartment to her dog. This leads to further scuffles. The woman pleads more and more desperately:

“Can you help me, please, can you help me… please, can you help me… please! I’m getting beat up, please!”

Shockingly, in the background you can see that the strong, younger passenger in white shorts and with a backpack, runs away from the fight, but out of curiosity, comes back when the black man is no longer there.

How anyone can ever look at themselves in the mirror again after such behaviour is a mystery to the author.

Only the younger man with the curly head tries to dissuade the black man from his actions with a repeated loud “Hey, hey, hey”.

Luckily, the aggressor leaves the S-Bahn compartment and makes his way to the stairs of the Gehrenseestraße stop.

Victim reports on Facebook

In the meantime, the victim of the crime has made a statement on Facebook about what had happened earlier:

I actually stood up for the man with the backpack, because he was attacked before me. When he attacked me, unfortunately the man with the backpack didn’t help me…

Apparently there were also Facebook commentators who criticised the victim’s dog. Here too, the young woman had an answer:

Many thanks for the ‘Get well soon’ wishes. However, I would like to address the people who think that think my dog should have intervened. I am HAPPY that he didn’t do anything! The guy was absolutely crazy and we were locked in the moving train. I don’t know what would have happened to my dog, my best friend and a living creature for whom I have responsibility! I wouldn’t have been able to forgive myself if something happened to him! My animal is my friend and not my weapon! Thank you very much!

Federal police have identified suspects

In the meantime, the Federal police have announced that the suspect has already been identified:

A Gatophage in Campiglia Marittima

Campiglia Marittima is a village in the Italian province of Livorno. Last Tuesday a young culture-enricher from the Ivory Coast killed and cooked a cat over a makeshift fire near the station in Campiglia Marittima, outraging several passers-by, who used their phones to take videos of the incident. The police briefly detained the puir wee bairn, but released him without charge, since apparently there was no violation of any law.

Man who cooked a cat at Campiglia Marittima

Since this morning, a video has been circulating, posted by a Facebook user, in which a man can be seen who is cooking or burning a cat at Campiglia Marittima. According to the press agency ANSA the man killed the cat and started to cook it lighting a fire on the sidewalk near the city station (Livorno/Leghorn). And from what has been reconstructed by the Carabinieri, who intervened this morning after more notifications, and who have identified the perpetrator as a 21-year-old foreigner who will be reported for killing an animal. The young man was then accompanied to the Carabinieri station pending clarification of his status in Italy. At the moment, he does not appear to be listed as legal. The Carabinieri intervened this morning shortly after 7 in response to numerous calls from citizens.

According to what the mayor of Campiglia Marittima, Alberta Ticciati, wrote, the man has been identified but not arrested. Repubblica Firenze (Florence) writes that the young African man is 23 years of age and comes from the Ivory Coast, and confirms that there has been no arrest because the laws do not apply.

He was a resident at a reception center in the area of Livorno from which he left (or was kicked out — an aspect to be clarified) and now is listed as without fixed abode. The young man has made an application for refugee status, but the request was rejected, and he presented an appeal: the proceeding is now at the Tribunal of Florence. There has been no arrest, as Ceccardi writes (no violation is specified in article 544 bis of the penal code, explain the investigators), but there is a report with release.

Article 544 bis of the penal code specifies that anyone who, out of cruelty or without necessity, causes the death of an animal may be punished by a period of incarceration from four months to two years. The episode has been posted on the Facebook pages of Susanna Ceccardi and Matteo Salvini complete with video.

“A chilling episode in its brutality, but unfortunately all true,” also writes Susanna Ceccardi. “I congratulate the Carabinieri who took the torturer into custody; now we ask for punishment as an example, because in our civilization the domestic animals are left alone and deserve maximum humaneness and respect for all the unconditional love they offer without asking for anything in return,” concludes the candidate for the Lega in the next regional elections in Tuscany.

The story has also been propagated by Matteo Salvini, who increased the dose: “An upsetting scene, cruel and monstrous this morning in Tuscany, near Livorno. They tell me that the delinquent will be arrested, I hope that will be confirmed. It merits jail, and, if he immigrated illegally, expulsion; we don’t want to see him walking around again!”

Both speak of an arrest which in reality has not occurred.

The AfD Was the Only Party in the Bundestag That Did Not Condemn Israel

Debate on Two-State Solution in the Middle East

AfD is the only party to reject condemnation of Israel in the Bundestag

July 1, 2020

All parties except the AfD have submitted motions to the Bundestag session this afternoon to condemn Israel for the alleged “annexation” of Judea and Samaria, the home of the Jewish people. The AfD will be the only party to reject all these motions.

The first parliamentary director of the AfD, Bernd Baumann, said at the press conference this morning: “The position of the AfD is that we do not give advice to Israel from the AfD. Given our basic historical position, we will not give advice to Israel.” The AfD will therefore be the only party in the German Bundestag that does not condemn Israel.

The MEP for the AfD, Joachim Kuhs, already described on PI-NEWS why Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria is not an “illegal occupation”. In a recent video from Brussels, Kuhs, who is a member of the AfD board and chairman of the “Christians in the AfD”, said: “ARD and ZDF want viewers to believe that the Israeli provinces of Judea and Samaria are ‘illegally occupied territories’. Last August, I was able to visit Judea and Samaria with a delegation of ‘Jews in the AfD’ and form my own opinion.”

Terror at a Paris Shopping Center

Earlier today an unidentified gunman carrying what was described as a Kalashnikov appeared at a shopping center in Paris. The unfortunate gentleman, presumably suffering from some form of mental illness, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (which is Arabic for “Down with systemic racism!”) while terrorizing shoppers.

The shopping center was evacuated. Some witnesses said they heard what sounded like gunshots, but no injuries were reported. Police were unable to find the gunman, and then inexplicably called off the search for the suspect.

Paris: Police Inexplicably Call Off Search for ‘Allahu Akhbar’ Gunman at Les Quatre Temps Shopping Center

by Amy Mek

This morning, June 30, a manhunt was deployed in the business district of La Défense, at a shopping center just outside Paris, Les Quatre Temps (also known as 4-Temps). Police called off the investigation with the unnerving explanation that they could not find a suspect.
