Paris Airport Attacker's Last Words: "I Am Here To Die For Allah, There Will Be Deaths"

Tyler Durden's picture

The man shot dead by French soldiers at Paris Orly airport on Saturday shouted he was there to "die for Allah" when as reported this morning, he tried to seize a soldier's assault rifle, apparently intending to open fire on passengers, a Paris prosecutor said. According to the Paris prosecutor, Francois Molins, who held a press conference in the French capital on Saturday evening the attack is being treated as a terrorist incident, and three people - the assailnt's father, brother and cousin - have been placed in custody.

The attacker, named as Ziyed Ben Belgacem, arrived at Orly airport on Saturday morning, threw down a bag containing a can of petrol and seized hold of a woman air force member who was part of a military patrol at the airport. Using the servicewoman as a shield, he put his air pistol to her head and shouted at other soldiers with her: "Put down your guns. Put your hands on your head. I am here to die for Allah, there will be deaths."

He was right, but the death was only one... his, because the moment he grabbed the woman, two soldiers fired eight bullets in three bursts at the man, killing him instantly. A Koran was found on his body.

According to Reuters, the prosecutor said the assailant, who tried to grab the woman's Famas assault rifle, seemed bent on carrying out a serious attack. "Given the violence that is shown in the (CCTV) pictures ... you sense that he was determined to go through with it," Molins told a news conference. "Everything leads one to believe he wanted to seize the Famas so that there were deaths and then to fire at people."

On his body, police found a Koran and 750 euros in cash. At his home, they found several grams of cocaine, a machete and some foreign currency, Molins said. Prosecutors are investigating a number of terrorism-related offences, including attempted murder. Belgacem's choice of target and evidence that he had been radicalized justified launching a terrorism investigation, Molins said.  Belgacem's father, brother and a cousin are in police custody, Molins said.

Belgacem, 39, was already on the authorities' radar. They spotted him as a radicalized Muslim when he served a prison term several years ago for drug-trafficking. The prosecutor said that Ben Belgacem, who had been born in Paris, had been sentenced to five years for robbery with a weapon, for offenses beginning in 1998, and was given a three and a five-year term for drug trafficking.

As reported this morning, several hours prior to the airport attack Belgacem shot and wounded a police officer with his air pistol after a routine traffic stop north of Paris before fleeing, officials said. After the first incident, Belgacem called his father and brother saying he had done something stupid, the prosecutor said. Later he entered a bar in Vitry-sur-Seine on the other side of Paris and opened fire with his air gun without hitting anyone. He also stole a car before arriving at the airport.

More than 230 people have died in France in the past two years at the hands of attackers allied to the militant Islamist group Islamic State, whose strongholds in Syria and Iraq are being bombed by an international coalition including France. These include coordinated bombings and shootings in November 2015 in Paris when 130 people were killed and scores injured.

With the country in the throes of a highly-charged election campaign before a two-round presidential election in April and May, the attacks will fuel the political debate. Conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon said in a video message that France was in a "situation of virtual civil war" and there was no justification for lifting a state of emergency in place since the November 2015 attacks, after the justice minister said this week conditions were in place for lifting it.

Anti-immigrant candidate Marine Le Pen said the death of the Orly airport attacker, who she said was a multiple repeat offender, had averted a "possible massacre". "Our government is overwhelmed, stunned, paralyzed like a rabbit in the headlights," she told an election rally.

President Francois Hollande said the case had shown the need for the "Sentinelle" security operation brought in after 2015 attacks. The soldiers involved were patrolling the airport as part of the "Sentinelle" operation. Last month, Egyptian Abdullah Reda al-Hamahmy, 29, was shot and seriously wounded near the Louvre museum when he launched himself at a group of soldiers, crying out "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest).

You see what you've gone and done right-wing haters? That young mooslim warrior was forced to take a stand and it's your fault he's dead.

Good job.

I saw on the BBC that the alleged attacker had a long criminal record.  The whore media would do their Muslim friends a great service by beeing honest that the perp was likely a Salafi (orthodox) Sunni Muslim who wants to destroy the infidel  as opposed to the vast majority of Muslims  many who could be described as secular Muslims who are more interested for example in March Madness. But instead the whore media attempt a coverup with the result that all Muslims get labeled as Jihadis.

Or worse, they killed an innocent man, realize he's a Muslim, then labeled him as a terrorist.

Or it's one of those fake terrorist attacks, pre-recorded in the Mossad basement to malign all Muslims ahead of attacking Iran (backdoor to WW3).

Israel has a demoghraphics problem. It is desperate for Jews to go to Israel. Israel has performed false flags in many countries for this purpose e.g. Iraq in the 1950s, bombing Jewish targets to make Iraqi Jews feel unsafe. It worked. A load of them moved to Israel (aided by those behind the attacks).

He was angry because the airport did not have a seperate prayer room for him with fresh towels and blaring that god-awful music.

The non-Islamic nations of the world need to fapply the Star Trek "Prime Directive" philosophy towards the Islamic nations.  No contact or interference or exchange with them at all.  Basically, let them live as they wish and leave them alone.  Do not import them into your nations and do not go and interact with them.  Build a giant big wall around the Islamic World.

They would be arrested, that why you don't see it.'the fatal flaw of the law abiding citizen is that they are law abiding. It is actually suicidal to think that way and we say THESE fuckers are crazy! We're the crazy ones for meekly getting shoved into a narrower and narrower chute

Bigly's picture

Yes.  It is a flaw.  But they are dopes to not see there is no longer rule of law and their govts are ACTIVELY moving against them and their rights.

Therefore i stick with my comment.  There are ways of not attracting attention. No?  

general ambivalent's picture

Yeah, there are people doing what they can, but groups like Nordic Resistance are often arrested (and I think there is a move to outlaw them as a Hate Group) even though they are basically just a protest group.

The reality is that no one is doing anything in the rest of the West either, no matter what the problem is. Anyone with similar ideas to us will be isolated completely, just for the way they think (not to mention that the Right is a pretty big mess currently anyways). And just look at what people get for trying to stand up, murdered openly by the military state and no one did a thing afterwards.

Eventually it will happen. Can't see the police and military letting this shit continue in all these panti-waist countries without real men. People need to get disappeared at night and then this shit will soon stop.

When people fall for this absurd theatre over and over I guess they get what they deserve.

One country in particular benefits from the "Allah Akbar" narrative.

I expect a lot of this shit to happen in France in the run-up to the LePen election. Should get her voted in. Then we will get to see one way or the other who's really running things.

Stock up on popcorn and prepare to be entertained. The kabuki, it will get intense...

Spare us the 'Joos did it' routine

The muzzies have been a clear and present danger since day one.

If the anti-muslim sentiment also helps Israel that's not myproblem.

Israel never invaded the West and never will.

The Joo banksters are a different kettle of fish.

They need to be dealt harshly.

Conflating Israel with ZOG is a failed idea.

Israel is one of the most PC riddled countries.

Cultural marxism is as strong there as in the West

Marxist internationalist Joos (mostly) hate Israel.

They will never admit it publicly though

The time-tested muslim move is to blame Jews on what his religion tells him to do.

When early Americans were busy stealing this continent from the native Americans there was no shortage of reports of native treachery and mendacity to hide the bigger crime of homeland theft.  Same diff.

It's truly an insult to people's intelligence. The more they replay the same script, the more people are thinking this is getting too easy to predict. The "terrorists" always end up not talking.

Try as I might, I really do not understand this kind of near-human.  Maybe I am over-thinking it.  But okay, so the sub wants to die for a zero concept (god belief) takes the time to walk or drive to an airport and get on an airplane to fly to another city, so it can do...what exactly? Seems like the beast took many extra steps just to end its existence.  If it wanted death by suicide, the loser could have started spouting off its zero concept gibberish outside of a police station - because surely there must *still* be the odd French cop who would relish putting it out of its misery.  Or, did this beast actually think it could wrestle a weapon from a trained member of French security?

If you have not yet watched the W5 documentary on the Nuttall case it is time you did. All of these individual cases are the same, and in this one they fucked up and got caught doing it: isolated mad man, radicalize him or even convert him to Islam, become his Imam and cut off access to non-CIA mosques, demand plans for an attack, suggest possible attacks, and even supply weapons (or promise to supply parts). All while Mr. Big himself threatens the mad men if they don't come up with a plan.

It's also quite telling that the experts believe this was a perfect execution of infiltration by special services.

The root cause of terror attacks, is the US war of terror, millions of refugees, all escaping the horror of American violence.

Apart from the millions escaping American violence in Europe, 3 million Afghans have fled American tyranny in Afghanistan to live in Iran.

Russia has taken over 1 million refugees escaping the McCain/Nuland/Clinton Nazis in Ukraine. 

JoeTurner's picture

Wrong. The root cause of terror attacks is islams seperation of the world into Dar al Islam and Dar al Harb....
