Paris under attack again - Page 6

post #76 of 322
From the communications put out by ISIS I think they were considering the entire city of Paris as the symbolic place. Something to do with sin and hookers?

ISIS strategy is not to conduct operations outside the zone they want to have control of so I'd take anything that comes out with a grain of salt, it might not be ISIS or the central leadership might be mightily pissed.

The only significance I can tease out of this is rue Charonne and the 1962 massacre of protesters favouring Algerian independance at Métro Charonne but that is far-fetched and these fuckers probably don't even know about that event.

A greek minister has confirmed, that the owner of the passport entered Europe on a refugee boat 6 weeks ago and was registred in Greece.

Source?

The state prosecutor just anounced 129 dead and 352 wounded. Three teams coordinated the attack, some were Belgians.

The holder of a Syrian passport found near the body of one of the gunmen who died in Friday night’s attacks in Paris passed though Greece in October, a Greek minister told Reuters.

“The holder of the passport passed through the island of Leros on 3 October 2015, where he was identified according to EU rules,” said Nikos Toscas, Greece’s deputy minister in charge of policing.

A Greek police source told Reuters that European countries had been asked to check the passport holder to see if they had been registered.

While this heavily implies that one of the gunman came into Europe along with refugees, Syrian passports are known to be valuable currency amongst those trying to enter Europe, and it is not yet confirmed whether the holder of the passport is indeed the perpetrator.
Unclear whether he was just the owner of the passport or if it was his actual passport, or if it wasn't his altogether. Some reports state the passports (the Egyptian one of the other attacker) were found on the bodies, others state near the bodies. Then again, they probably blew themselves up, so "near the body" is probably as good as it gets.

I saw it on a danish newspaper quoting Reuters.

Aren't you required to have an ID on you at all times in France?

I imagine even if you were planning a suicide attack, you'd obey all the laws up to that point to reduce the odds your plan gets tripped up over something mundane like not having an ID to produce to some beat cop.

"The Greek government has announced one of the terrorist gunmen who had a part in killing over 120 in Paris on Friday evening entered Europe while masquerading as a refugee just six weeks ago."

It's Breitbart, so we'll see, but seems credible so far.

I guess it will strengthen position of Hungary and like minded governments on migration policy

Well I'll bet you whatever you want that most people implicated will be citizens and not even first generation. Some of them are apparently Belgians (Molenbeek-Saint-Jean is a hotbed of radicalism).

Well the Iraq invasion partly lead to Daesh and Bush II was an awful president but yeah, monocausal explanations for the world's ills are the mark of stupidity or fanaticism.

Wallonia is a hotbed of happily inebriated White trash, real street trash and Muzzies. Filth gravitates together. I have never seen such dirty, third world country with broken buildings, abandoned factories and terrible roads like French part of Belgium. Truly awful looking place, with one redeeming value: French restartnt food.

Don't be so quick to reject your nephew.

Reuters reports that George W Bush was seen driving the escape car. CNN reports that his photo was taken meeting with the disaffected youths and constructing explosive belts.
