Jamel Gorchene, the Tunisian terrorist, who slashed the throat of a female police officer in Rambouillet (Yvelines), France, arrived in France illegally in 2009, when he was 24 years old. He worked in construction and as a delivery driver in the Paris metro region. In December of 2019, he was given a work permit. [1] Radicalized during the pandemic lockdown? It was only last April (during the pandemic lockdown) that he started writing for the first time about religion online. He published verses of the Coran in Arabic. In October 2020, a week after a teacher, Samuel Paty, was decapitated in a terrorist attack, he shared a photo saying “I am Mohamed” and asked Muslims to “respond to France and Macron’s abuses of our Prophet”. He also changed his profile photo and wrote “Respect Mahomet [Mohamed]” [2]. France needs to do more to fully assimilate-integrate its earlier generations of North African (Maghreb) immigrants and their French born descendants, especially the many from Algeria, rather than adding more immigrants. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_to_France#Maghrebis

Excerpts from the French National Anthem:
Allons enfants de la Patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L’étendard sanglant est levé, (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes!

Aux armes, citoyens,
Formez vos bataillons,…
Arise, children of the Fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived!
Against us, tyranny’s
Bloody standard is raised, (repeat)
Do you hear, in the countryside,
The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
They’re coming right into our arms
To cut the throats of our sons, our women!

To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions,…

From VOA News:
French authorities have detained three people and opened a terrorism investigation after a man attacked and killed a police administrator Friday with a knife at a police station in a Paris suburb.

Security officials said the attacker stabbed a female police administrative worker outside the police station in the southwest Paris suburb of Rambouillet.

The officials said at least one police officer at the scene opened fire on the assailant — identified as a 36-year-old Tunisian national living in France  — and fatally shot him. Media reporters said the man had no previous criminal record and was unknown to police.

Authorities say the victim was a 49-year-old female police administrator, who was returning to work after her lunch break, when she was attacked and stabbed in the throat. Witnesses say the attacker shouted “Allah Akbar” — “God is great” — as he stabbed her.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex, along with other officials, was at the scene of the crime in Rambouillet, an upscale suburb about 60 kilometers southwest of Paris in France’s Yvelines department. Castex, and France’s antiterror prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard, who also was at the scene, said the incident would be investigated as a terrorist attack.

On his Twitter account, French President Emmanuel Macron said the nation is at the side of the slain police administrator, her family, colleagues and the police. “In the fight against Islamist terrorism, we will not give up.”

The attack comes six months after another knife attack in the region when an Islamist teenager beheaded a schoolteacher in Conflans, another town outside Paris.

France has suffered a wave of attacks by Islamist militants or Islamist-inspired individuals in recent years that have killed about 250 people.”

Note: VOA news appears to be run and operated by self-perpetuating international bureaucrats who support Biden, Kamala Harris, BLM, and their ilk. While one would think that it would reflect the US government, it did not reflect the Trump administration. Thus, it should be used with caution. It is very similar to mainstream media, but it’s in the public domain, which is why we use it sometimes.
