Europe is in the midst of an incredibly bloody terror epidemic, and the latest news from Paris shows that very little is being done to slow it down.
Worse yet, this latest attack targeted French police who were working to keep the airport secure.
The attacker, who has yet to be identified by name, was certainly known to police. Sources within the investigation tell reporters that the singular male gunman was a devout Muslim who was a prominent name on authorities’ terror watch list, and was the owner of a quite formidable criminal record previous to today’s incident.
“A convicted criminal with links to radical Islam has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after snatching a soldier’s gun and fleeing into a McDonald’s.
“Less than two hours earlier, a female police officer had been shot in the head in a northern Paris suburb during a routine stop-and-search operation.
“Police now believe the shooting in Stains, where three officers were shot at, was carried out by the 39-year-old man, who was later killed.
“After fleeing the scene, the man stole a woman’s car at gunpoint.
“Today’s incidents come as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Paris, where they have met with victims of terrorism.
“The man killed at the airport had previously been jailed for drug trafficking and was radicalised in prison, according to reports in Paris.”
France, of course, has been struggling mightily with terrorism in the past 18 months, as wave after wave of Muslim refugee enters the country from the war-torn and terrorist friendly Middle East. This latest attack is a somber reminder of the evil that lurks in the corners of our society, and our duty to protect our loved ones and fellow countrymen by any means necessary.
