Prosecutors in Paris have revealed that the Muslim covert who went on the knife stabbing rampage followed radical Islam, defended jihadist attacks and recently began to change his dress style. He texted his wife a religious message before stabbing five people, killing four.
Questions raised as to how an openly radical Muslim was able to launch an attack on colleagues at a Paris police precinct where he worked. His comments in support of jihad were indeed reported to higher-ranking officers but nothing was ever done.
The NYT reports that the jihadist was a long term convert to Islam, not a recent one as initially stated. He was extremely devout, where he always attended a local mosque that featured a radical imam. The murder rampage was originally described as a workplace dispute.
The jihadist’s Facebook page features posts about radical Islam, Palestine & Syria. He slit the throat of a police major, stabbed to death an officer, an administrative employee and a female officer at the central police headquarters. nytimes.com/2019/10/05/wor…
The jihadist’s wife has been arrested but not charged. She is trying to blame his mental health for attack. Media report say she is a veiled Muslim woman from Morocco. When he texted her after buying the knife, she texted back: “Only Allah will judge you.” faz.net/aktuell/politi…
