Once again, the media blame it on “mental problems.” Nothing to see here folks, nothing to do with Islam.
UK Telegraph (h/t Kitty) A Muslim man in Metz has tried to strangle a police officer while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (My God is greater than yours), the latest in a spate of attacks in France that have heightened fears of terrorism. The doctor who treated the officer said “just a few seconds more and it would have been too late.”
Other police officers saw the events on the video surveillance system and rushed to save their colleague, who had been thrown to the ground. His assailant was said to have a history of “psychiatric problems” – (the new Get-Out-Of-Jail free card for Muslim criminals and terrorists)
Manuel Valls, the prime minister, ordered the deployment of up to 300 extra “military forces” around the country just before Christmas after three similar attacks in three days left one dead and scores injured.
While officials insisted the incidents were unrelated, they raised fears of ‘lone wolf’ attacks by Islamist terrorists. The government has faced criticism for supposedly playing down the threat, at a time when at least 1,000 French nationals are thought be involved in jihad in Syria and Iraq.
