Paris, Syria, & Francois Hollande
Did Paris weaponize and finance the Islamic State or prior organizations in Syria and Iraq from which this terror attack grew?
Consider that in 2012, Hollande admits Paris delivered canons, missiles, and rocket launchers to Syrian rebels in violation of the European embargo. Hollande states as much in the book “In the Corridors of French Diplomacy” published in France.
The deliveries took place in 2012, before the embargo was canceled in May 2013, according to François Hollande’s last year interview with journalist and writer Xavier Panon. “We began when we were certain they would end up in the right hands. For the lethal weapons it was our services who delivered them,” Hollande told the writer, AFP reports.
In October 2012 an article in the New York Times states that “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats”.
In December 2012 an article in the Guardian states that “France has emerged as the most prominent backer of Syria’s armed opposition and is now directly funding rebel groups around Aleppo as part of a new push to oust the embattled Assad regime”. The French newspaper le Figaro reported this week that French military advisers had recently met with rebel groups inside Syria, in an area between Lebanon and Damascus, in further evidence of efforts by Paris to step up pressure on president Assad.
In August 2014 an article on the France 24 website states that “President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that France had delivered weapons to rebels battling the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad a few months ago.”
The deliveries took place “a few months ago, when the Syrian rebels had to face both the armies of the dictator Bashar al-Assad and this terrorist group Islamic State,” Hollande told reporters on a tour of the French island of La Reunion.
Allow me to divert momentarily and mention a villain serving in the US Senate, one John McCain alleged hero because he was a POW and not because he performed an act of heroism. But such is the mainstream media MO when it comes to dispensing lies. The non-hero states in January 2014 to Candy Crowley, “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar.” “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends,” the senator said once again a month later, at the Munich Security Conference.
McCain was praising Prince Bandar bin Sultan, then the head of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services and a former ambassador to the United States, for supporting forces fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham had previously met with Bandar to encourage the Saudis to arm Syrian rebel forces.
Why am I bringing this up? Elementary my dear Watson, because France benefited from its support for the U.S.-Wahhabi regime change project in Syria and Iraq by getting huge orders for military equipment from the medieval Wahhabi regimes:
In April 2015, Reuters reports that France and Qatar seal $7 billion Rafale fighter jet deal. Qatar has agreed to buy 24 Dassault Aviation-built Rafale fighter jets in a 6.3-billion-euro (4.55 billion pounds) deal, the French government said on Thursday, as the Gulf Arab state looks to boost its military firepower in an increasingly unstable region. Paris has close commercial and political ties with Qatar and Hollande will push further business interests in the country as well as encourage investment into France, where the gas-rich Gulf state already has assets of about $10 billion.
In June 2015, Al Arabya reports that France and Saudi Arabia plan to sign $12 billion of deals on Wednesday, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters during a visit by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in deals highlighting Paris growing commercial ties in the Middle East. According to Al Arabiya New sources these contracts, which highlight Paris growing ties with Riyadh, are “the first signs of a much stronger Riyadh-Paris alliance, and the next few months are going to demonstrate exactly just how close these two allies have now become.”
The contracts include 23 Airbus H145 helicopters worth $500 million, Fabius told reporters. The H145, previously known as the EC145, is a light twin-engined helicopter typically used for emergency services or border patrols. A military version is used by the U.S. Army.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said he was still discussing the price for a contract for French naval patrol boats, built by DCNS. Saudi Arabia also plans to sign a feasibility study for two EPR reactors built by Areva , Fabius added.
In September 2015, even after it became obvious that the regime change project in Syria had led to an expansion of terrorism, Hollande was still demanding the end of the Syrian state. President Francois Hollande of France told the United Nations General Assembly on Monday that his country would “shoulder its responsibilities” in global efforts to end the fighting in Syria, but that the conflict could be resolved only if President Bashar al-Assad was removed from power.
Hollande, Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do, When they come for you…
As for the rest of the European inept political elite, they are currently exhibiting a lack of leadership that is sophomoric and is only surpassed by the current and aspiring leadership of the United States of America.
Regardless of the bloody writing on the wall for the past decade and a half, the West, with Europe in the lead, continues to be shocked every time a terror attack occurs. After 9/11 in the United States with 2,977 murdered; the 2004 Madrid train bombings, with nearly 200 murdered and 2000 wounded, and the 2005 attacks on London’s transit system with 56 people murdered and 700 wounded, the poor excuses for world leaders we are currently damned with have no credible excuse left to be shocked at mass murder occurring in the midst of Western capitals.
In September 2015, Andrew Parker, director-general of Britain’s MI5, said that the terror threat to the UK was at its highest level in more than three decades and “growing.” British police and intelligence agencies have intervened to foil six terrorist plots in the past year alone. “That is the highest number I can recall in my 32-year career, certainly the highest number since 9/11,” he said. “It represents a threat which is continuing to grow, largely because of the situation in Syria and how that affects our security.”
Instead of Britain, these attacks happened in France. They could have happened in Germany, where police revealed the arrest of a man whom they believe may be connected the Paris attacks. German authorities are investigating whether a man arrested in the southern state of Bavaria last week has ties to the perpetrators of Friday’s terror attacks in Paris after discovering assault weapons and explosives in his vehicle. “There’s a link to Paris but it hasn’t been established that there’s a link to this attack,” Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told reporters in Berlin on Saturday. Officials found “very dangerous weapons” in the man’s car and a Paris address entered into the navigation unit. “Whether there’s a connection is being investigated,” de Maiziere said. The Paris attacks, which left at least 127 people dead on Saturday, started near the Stade de France soccer stadium during an exhibition game between Germany and France. The German team spent the night in the stadium before taking a specially arranged flight to Frankfurt early on Saturday. Before the game, an anonymous bomb threat forced the team to evacuate its hotel, according to Der Spiegel.
Already in February, it was reported in several European newspapers, among them the British Daily Telegraph, that ISIL threatened Europe with an influx of 500,000 migrants, which would include ISIL operatives hiding among them, to create chaos on the continent.
Astoundingly, European leaders nevertheless allowed the current wave of migrants to flood into their countries. Many of these migrants hide underground, often in the suburbs with these “parallel societies;” with European authorities unable to account for their whereabouts.
In September, a Syrian ISIL smuggler told the British daily, The Express, that more than 4,000 covert ISIL gunmen had been smuggled into Western nations, and were “ready” across the European Union. He also said that the undercover infiltration was the beginning of a larger plot to carry out attacks in the West, allegedly in retaliation for the US-led coalition airstrikes against ISIL.
In September, Lebanon’s education minister, Elias Bou Saab, estimated that thousands of ISIL “radicals” were among the 1.1 million Syrians currently in refugee camps. He predicted that one in 50 migrants are members of the terror organization. Although at the time, the minister admitted that he had no solid information on the infiltration of refugees, he said, “My gut feeling is ISIL are facilitating an operation. To go to Europe and other places.”
The terrorist attacks in Paris are either the direct and deplorable result of political cowardice and inertia or, they were allowed to happen to sway public opinion against the unchecked immigration of Muslims into Europe. Either way the blame falls squarely on the politicians and their masters. These Politicians are degenerates unable or unwilling to name the problems by their rightful name. These loathsome, rotten to the core, politicians have been shying away from engaging with the enormous security and social problems that Muslim immigration into Europe and the West has caused and continues to cause.
According to a leaked German intelligence document — portions of which were published by Die Welt on October 25 — reveals growing alarm within the highest echelons of Germany’s intelligence and security apparatus about the consequences of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door immigration policy.
The so-called non-paper (the author of the document remains anonymous) warns that the “integration of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants will be impossible given the large numbers involved and the already-existing Muslim parallel societies in Germany.” The document adds:
“We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law. German security agencies are unable to deal with these imported security problems, and the resulting reactions from the German population.”
An unidentified high-ranking security official told Die Welt:
“The high influx of people from other parts of the world will lead to the instability of our country. By allowing this mass migration, we are producing extremists. Mainstream society is radicalizing because the majority does not want migration, which is being forced by the political elites. In the future, many Germans will turn away from the constitutional state.”
So once again the Muslims hordes are at the gates of Vienna and who is coming to Europe’s aid? Why, the most hated (according to the mainstream media and the morons who drink it’s kool-aid) man on planet earth, Vladimir Putin. LOL, go figure…
In closure, I believe the time has come for a second Bastille in Paris, and subsequently Rome, Madrid, Berlin, and London, as elections are just not cutting it. If you do not understand the why, just think that it was the deviant politicians and their chancroid masters that decided to remove Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, and Bashar al-Assad, thereby creating ISIL and the rest of the murderous actions that have and will continue to befall us. So you can either sit back and passively accept it or you can do something about it.
