TERROR MANHUNT: French Authorities Seeking Accomplices of Islamic Killers

Posted on | November 15, 2015 | 78 Comments


The perpetrators of Friday’s massacre in Paris have been identified, and the investigation exposes the worldwide menace of Islam:

Police [on Saturday] issued an international arrest warrant for one of three Belgian-born brothers believed to be at the heart of the eight-strong ISIS cell who murdered 132 people in Paris.
French police are hunting 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, from Brussels, who is accused of renting a Volkswagen Polo used by the suicide bombers who killed 89 people at the Bataclan music venue on Friday.
His brother Ibrahim is believed to have blown himself up during the Paris siege and a third unnamed sibling has been arrested in the Belgian capital.
An official told the Washington Post another of the shooters was Bilal Hadfi, who was from Belgium and had spent time fighting with ISIS in Syria, who also died after detonating his suicide vest during a murderous rampage.
The killer gang, containing a number of Frenchman living in Belgium, two others carrying Syrian passports after sneaking into Europe disguised as migrants and a female accomplice, are believed to have travelled together from Brussels to Paris in rented cars.
Serbian media claims Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, whose Syrian passport was found on the body of a suicide bomber, allegedly blew himself up at the Bataclan concert hall, where at least 89 people were slaughtered on Friday. Two other bombers were said to be carrying fake Turkish passports, it was being reported tonight.
French police have said homegrown terrorist Omar Ismaël Mostefai , 29, from Courcouronnes, Paris, was one of the Bataclan suicide bombers but he is said to have been radicalised by a Brussels-based hate preacher who spoke regularly at his French mosque.

We learn more about the role of “refugees” in the Paris attack:

The [Serbian] newspaper, Blic, claims [Ahmed] Almuhamed arrived with another of the bombers in Europe on the Greek island of Leros on October 3 on his way to Paris. Greek website Protothema have published ferry tickets showing the name of a second man, Mohammed Almuhamed, who could be a relation.
French police are hunting 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, from Brussels, who is accused of renting a Volkswagen Polo used by the suicide bombers who killed 89 people at the Bataclan music venue on Friday.
His brother Ibrahim is believed to have blown himself up during the Paris siege and a third unnamed sibling has been arrested in the Belgian capital. . . .
Bilal Hadfi, who was from Belgium and had spent time fighting with ISIS in Syria, who also died after detonating his suicide vest during a murderous rampage.
One of the attackers has been named locally as homegrown terrorist Omar Ismaël Mostefai , 29, from Courcouronnes, Paris. The petty criminal was known to police as a radical and identified by the fingerprint on a severed digit found after he detonated his suicide belt. . . .
The disclosure that some may have entered Europe as migrants, which came amid claims of French intelligence failures, inevitably raises new security concerns about the safety of Europe’s borders.
Meanwhile the black Seat Leon used by the terrorists who murdered diners outside the Casa Nostra pizza restaurant and the La Belle Équipe cafe has been found abandoned 20 minutes away in Montreuil with three AK-47s with five full magazines and 11 empty ones. . . .
Ahmed Almuhamed is believed to have taken around a month to travel to France posing as a migrant. He had entered Serbia at Miratovce, having crossed the frontier from Macedonia. The newspaper reported that Almuhamed, applied for asylum in Serbia in Presevo before crossing into Croatia and Austria.
Paris prosecutors confirmed that the suspects, all wearing explosive vests, roamed across the French capital in three teams, perpetrating the ‘worst acts of violence’ in the country since the Second World War. Fingerprint records show that two of the terrorists had arrived in the EU as refugees through Greece.

UPDATE: Read what Pamela Geller wrote:

Despite all this horror, the European Union elites are bringing into Europe millions of these savages. I have warned for years about this coming jihad. For doing so, I was attacked, smeared, and marginalized. We were right about it all, and yet still my colleagues and I are blacklisted. Hundreds are dead, and the war has just begun. We did everything in our power to save lives. But the political, media, and academic elites aligned with the savages. . . .
This is a world war. I have exposed hundreds of Islamic State social postings which name names and provide addresses and photos of U.S. soldiers here in the States, urging American Muslims to slaughter our boys and girls.
Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in U.S. mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the U.S. have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State. And now they seek to wage jihad here at home.

UPDATE II: More on the terrorists who struck Paris:

French authorities have said seven suicide attackers died in Friday’s carnage and are hunting another believed to be “directly involved” in the bloodshed. Belgian authorities have arrested seven other men in connection with the attacks. . . .
Omar Ismaïl Mostefai was the first attacker named by French authorities. The 29-year-old is of Algerian heritage and grew up in Courcouronnes, just south of Paris, where he picked up a criminal record for petty offences. . . .
French intelligence took note of Mostafei when he began spending time at a mosque with radical links in 2010, but they lost track of him in 2013, when he may have travelled to Syria, the Washington Post reported. . . .
Salah’s brother Ibrahim Abdeslam was identified by prosecutors as the man who rented a Seat vehicle used in the attacks. He carried out the suicide attack at the Comptoir Voltaire cafe. He was 31.
A third Abdeslam brother, who has not been named, is believed to have been among seven people arrested on Saturday in the Molenbeek-Saint-Jean district of Brussels, suspected of being connected to the attacks.

Also, speaking to CNN, French senator Nathalie Goulet said that the suspect on the run is most probably the bomb-maker and is one of the three brothers thought to have been involved in the attacks. “With such heavy material, they need a professional.” The New York Times reports:

The carefully coordinated attacks on Friday night, which killed at least 129 people and which are believed to be the work of the Islamic State, increasingly appear to have involved extensive planning by a network of men with sophisticated weapons who plotted their attack from outside the country. . . .
French officials initially described eight attackers, but on Saturday night said that only seven had died — six by blowing themselves up and one in a shootout with police. . . .
The Salah brothers lived in Molenbeek, an impoverished section of Brussels that is mostly populated by immigrants from the Arab world and that has been linked to violence. “We don’t have control of the situation in Molenbeek at present,” [Belgium’s Interior Minister Jan] Jambon told VRT, a television channel.

Having surrendered control of their borders, by admitting many thousands of Arab immigrants, now Belgian officials are forced to admit they “don’t have control” over parts of their own capital city. It is in these neighborhoods — “no-go zones” that are effectively off-limits to non-Muslims, including police — that this attack on France was planned and organized. But you will be denounced as a “racist” if you call attention to this danger, because liberals always think it is better for innocent citizens to be murdered by terrorists than for any Muslim immigrant to have his feelings hurt.

    Yes, the only question for me is how many Europeans will have to die before they start acting like Europeans by slaughtering massive numbers of people in very efficient ways. I find it baffling that any non-Europeans have been dumb enough to go there. They must be literally retarded.

    Really? No sir, look at their history. Every major revolution, with its accompanying massive deaths, only took ten percent. At most.

    Also, I can guarantee you that Finland and Hungary will remain as they are, simply because they won’t accept anything else, by the knife. If you didn’t know that, then you should accept that you don’t really understand what is going on.

    But what the immivaders really need to be afraid of is the ten percent.

    Look at the history of the prophets in Israel and Judah — those (few) persons trying to warn a society that its own foolish choices are bringing destruction upon it are *always* vilified by those who do not want to stop advocating and making foolish choices.

    The Foreign Legion has units in continental France as well. The FFL HQ is in Aubignon. The 2 REP on Corsica is the only unit that is not permanently stationed on the continent itself. The Paras, however, are the elite of a very tough outfit and are people you wouldn’t want to even think about messing with.

    Well, several factors enabled the Western Roman Empire’s fall. One was an inability to control their borders.

    Another was the decline of the Roman military as Emperors after Commodus refused to permit a strong military under capable leaders, fearing with good reason that it jeopardized their hold on the throne. Another reason was the degradation of the legions as the army became comprised of non-Romans and lost its organizational and training edge over the barbarians.

    So loss of border control, massive influx of unassimilated outsiders, and a military incapable of defending the nation. Sound familiar?

    I agree about Finland and Hungary. I might add Switzerland, which has always been somewhat Euro-skeptical and fiercely aloof.

    As for the general population of Europe, most of them appear appalled at what is occurring, but without our own Constitutional protections (which as we have noted are under assault here) they are largely aimless, undirected, and for the most part incapable of combined effective action.

    Europeans need effective political leadership, and they don’t have and are not likely to get it. As if we can gloat on that score ourselves.

    Someone never served, or studied military history. For every grunt toting a rifle, there are a dozen support troops behind the scenes. And for every uniformed soldier, there are a score of reservists and civilian materiel supporters.
