Car Rams Into Group Of Soldiers In Paris; Six Injured In "Deliberate Act Of Terrorism"

In the latest car-ramming terrorist attack in France, at least six French soldiers were injured, three of them seriously, after being rammed by what was described as a black BMW in a Paris suburb, French Armed forces confirmed, adding that the police were searching for the driver in what prosecutors are treating as the latest act of terrorism.

Patrick Balkany, the local mayor for the suburb of Levallois-Perret, said on French television that it was “without a doubt a deliberate act.” Quoted by the WSJ, he said the vehicle involved was a black BMW. The driver waited in an alley near the local city hall before driving his car into the men as they walked out of a building toward their vehicle around 8 a.m. local time, Mr. Balkany added. He also said that the incident took place not far from the town hall.

“I find this shameful,” Balkany said, calling the incident an “intolerable aggression.”

Minister for the Armed Forces Florence Parly condemned the incident as a “cowardly act,”saying that the investigation is yet to determine the motives of the attacker.  The counter-terrorism unit of the Paris prosecutor’s office has launched an investigation into the incident, AFP reports, citing the prosecutor’s office.

After the attack, three soldiers were seriously injured but their lives aren’t in danger, Defense Minister Florence Parly said. The soldiers were among some 7,000 who have been deployed across the country to protect sensitive targets such as government offices, schools, places of worship and tourist attractions. There are many security cameras in the area.

The ongoing string of attacks, which started with a Nov. 13, 2015 assault by Islamic State militants that killed 130 people in Paris and the truck attack in Nice that killed 86 on Bastille Day in July 2016, has put France on edge. The government has declared and renewed a state of emergency, but the crackdown hasn’t stopped the drumbeat of periodic attacks.

There have been roughly a dozen terror attacks in France since Nov. 2015, and more than half of those targeted military patrols or police. In June, two separate attackers targeted armed patrols near the Notre Dame Cathedral and on the Champs-Élysées, causing only minor injuries.  In April, a gunman opened fire on the Champs-Élysées, killing a police officer and wounding two other people. Police returned fire, killing the gunman, who was later identified as Karim Cheurfi, a French national. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the April attack, said SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors the extremist group’s communications.

Wednesday’s incident is the second potential terrorist attack in just a few days in the Paris region. On Saturday night, a knife-wielding man attempted to force his way into the Eiffel Tower.

The man, who was shouting “Allahu akbar”—Arabic for “God is great”—was quickly detained by police and no one was harmed, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office said. The man has a history of psychological problems, she added, without disclosing further details. "Psychological problems" has become Europe's generic cop out when it wishes to avoid any debate or discussion on the ongoing terrorist attacks by radicalized jihadists.

It seems Muslim men (and the occasional female) are destined to go completely and maniacally homicidal at some point in their life. The odds of this are not insignificant, obviously, so why are we Americans inflicting this upon ourselves? I see no upside to bringing any of these people here

ALL acording to plan...nothing to see here, it is just a plan to turn europe into a future race of mongrel Jew-worshippers... check also:-KALERGI plan (miscegenation into low IQ brown mongrels) / also Hooton plan-George Soros leaks on the Merkel plan Merkel Plan Compassion and Control… Charlemagne Prize BEARERS list professional rapefugee smuggler operation… divörsity™ Lerner Spectre"I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive." ~ Barbara Lerner Spectre"Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit...The man of the future will be a mongrel.  Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian–Negroid race of the future, similar in its outward appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals."Practical Idealism - by Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

Unfortunately even Tyler has gone the 'passive voice' route."Car Rams Into Group of Soldiers.."No Tyler, the car did not ram anyone. Someone behind the wheel used the car to ram the soldiers. However, when driver-less cars become more prevalent, you might just be on to something. Imagine the headlines when the first driver-less car is programed to go on a rampage.

"No Tyler, the car did not ram anyone. Someone behind the wheel used the car to ram the soldiers."


"Driver purposefully runs down a group of soldiers." would have been much more valid and accurate according to the details.

Politically correct language corruptions engineered for perception management and propaganda disguised as journalism are being inserted insidiously into our discourse, even here on The Hedge.

Sadly, one must observe, listen, and parse warily and distrustfully even those that claim to be honest allies and patriots.

No. Are you?

OT: While idiots are being distracted by Zionist bs, geopolitical moves are being made. Putin has just declared that Russia will guaranty the independence of Abkhazia on the Black Sea between Russia and Georgia. It looks like Russia has preempted Zionist NATO plans to stir shit up in Georgia.

Meanwhile carry on watching the show.

Given you edited your comment significantly whilst I was replying I will add that it is well known that facts are anti-semitic /sarc

I fail to see the connection between Abkhazia and the tendency of French Muslims to ram their cars into people...Back to the topic at hand - how do you exactly imagine that a a tiny country of about 8 million people and very little natural resources, is supposedly controlling the actions of over a billion Muslims worldwide, directing them to kill both non-Muslims and Muslims alike in practically every corner of the world?Just suppose "a Zionist agent" would approach you and offer you money to fly a plane into the world trade center. Would you do that? I'm guessing you wouldn't.And yet here you are, claiming that for some reason "innocent Muslims" do fall for the trap and commit horrific acts of violence in order to please their so called Zionist masters. Does this make any sense? no, it doesn't.

You missed out on the real news, that someone was "body shamed", at least that's what popped up on bing first, so it must be true.There is a lot of fake news around, but I don't believe that zionism has converted from trying to establish Israel to destroying all western civilisation by filling it with millions of savages that want to kill all jews.  Because if that was true then their end goal would be to have every nuclear arsenal other than Russian or Chinese owned by Muslims, that seems a dumb plan.

Those same terrorists never attack Israel not because they like Israel, its because they are not allowed into the country and the border is secured by the IDF.As for the idea that Jews run false flag attacks against non-Israeli jews in order to get them all to cram into Israel, well I wonder what that does for the possible survival of Jewish people when virtually the entire world population could be wiped out with 30-40 nuclear warheads.  That seems the sort of thing someone who wanted to kill all the Jews would want to do, hardly a masterplan, and it would also do nothing for Israeli security.  The lasst point which counters zionism since the whole point of zionism was to establish Israel to start with.And no one yet has managed to explain how much money you need to pay somone to suicide themselves for these "false flag" attacks...

This is so obviously operation Gladio 2.0 using muslims instead of nazi members. And the reason is to intimidate the Europeans into submission to accept the new anti Russian sanctions and not counter attack.There were attacks in Germany too.It is so transparent.Every time the Europeans showed some signs of independence from the AAZ empire,boom some "terrist attacks"

Diversity!Diversity!!Let them ALL in!No Borders!(Oh, and we should also pay, feed, cloth, house and care for them all on the US taxpayer's dime, and give them free medical too, and their families, and anyone else in the entire world looking for a free handout from my personal sweat and labor).It's the only "fair" thing for us to do (Justice, racism, xenophobia and all . . . ).What could possibly go wrong?!!

" I see no upside to bringing any of these people here"Niether do I. However, this is only part of the picture. Since invasion of Iraq by the US along with our regime changes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, Syria, ......, one might  say that the "ME could see no upside of bringing any of US there"   If you consider this problem in a vacuum, your observations make sense. Taken in context, what is a good response? I propose that we make a trade. We not let ANY muslims in the US and as an exchange, we bring ALL our troups home -namely also not let ANY US people fight in ME.
