Sending a follower on a stabbing spree, ISIS uses France’s liberal asylum policy to commit acts of terrorism.
When ISIS attacks they aren’t shy about making sure everyone knows it was them. So they put out a propaganda video after the recent stabbing spree in Paris. The knifeman has a Chechen refugee who had come to France for asylum in the 1990s. Rather than assimilating, he was radicalized over time. Based on the other arrests that were made it is likely that he was helped in the process by friends and relatives who also immigrated to France.
Yet the French authorities have recently encouraged more immigration!
The Daily Mail reports, “Knifeman, 20, who killed one and injured four in rampage near Paris opera house a decade after arriving as a refugee from Chechnya urges his ISIS ‘brothers’ to ‘stay strong’ in martyrdom video.”
The Islamic State has released a posthumous video featuring the knifeman who carried out a deadly terror attack in Paris on Saturday.
20-year-old Khamzat Asimov, who arrived in France as a refugee from war-torn Chechnya, launched a nine-minute lethal knife rampage through the centre of Paris.
Asimov murdered one man and severely wounded four others – including a Chinese and Luxembourg citizen – in the attacks close to the historic Opera Garnier, in the city centre.
Hours afterwards, his parents were both arrested at the family home in Paris, where they have lived since fleeing Chechnya in the early 2000s.
Now though, ISIS have released a propaganda video featuring the killer in which he recorded a last message confirming his affiliation with the terror cell.
In the video, Asimov, who was on an anti-terror watchlist of suspected extremists, refers to his ‘brothers’ in ISIS overseas in Iraq and Syria and explicitly declares his allegiance with the group.
He goes on to address other extremists residing across Europe in Germany, France and the UK telling them to ‘stay strong – victory is at hand’.
The attacker can be seen speaking to the camera in French as he sits in a rainy park with trees in the background.
He ends the video by looking into the camera and simply saying ‘goodbye’.[…]
Paris prosecutors confirmed that the dead man was born in the Russian republic of Chechnya in 1997 and had no previous criminal record – but was on the so-called ‘S file’ of people suspected of radicalised views who could pose security risks.[…]
He came to France as a political refugee in the early 2000s, and as he grew up displayed an increasing interest in radical Islam, another source added.
There are some 30,000 Chechens in France, most of whom arrived as political refugees in the early 2000s because of the two Chechen Wars.
President Emmanuel Macron has since been active in admitting more who have suffered persecution in a Muslim-majority republic that is now part of the Russian Federation.
