“THIS IS AN ACT OF WAR”: French President Hollande Confirms the Islamic State Behind Jihad Massacre

19

The Islamic State has claimed credit for the city-wide massacre in Paris. President Hollande has confirmed this.

French President Francois Hollande has this morning pointed the finger of blame for last night’s Paris attacks squarely at Islamic State (ISIS), describing the attack as an “act of war.”
Mr. Hollande asserted that the attacks were “committed by a terrorist army, the Islamic State group, a jihadist army, against France, against the values that we defend everywhere in the world, against what we are: A free country that means something to the whole planet.”

He said France “will be merciless toward the barbarians of Islamic State group.”

France “will act by all means anywhere, inside or outside the country” and described the attack as “cowardly”.

Announcing three days national mourning, and raising the country’s threat level to its highest possible point, Mr. Hollande spoke of “the terrorist menace,” and announced that he would address the French parliament on Monday.

He said in a televised address: “I pay homage to the country’s defenders who fought the terrorists yesterday.

“Everyone has given their upmost and will be putting in their best efforts in the day to come.”

“Even if France is wounded, she will rise.”

Mr. Hollande said the attacks were “organised” but “planned from outside” with help from within, suggesting that the terrorists who committed the atrocities may have been able to make their way into and across France from another country…… more

The Islamic group orchestrated the slaughter working with Muslims in France. How many helped the now dead eight jihadis?

Hollande was a target of the attack. He was at the stadium that was bombed.

Scenes were described as “apocalyptic.”

“We heard the sound of guns, 30-second bursts. It was endless. We thought it was fireworks,” he said.

Another witness described the scene: “For a moment, we could only see the flames from the gun. We were scared, how did we know he wasn’t going to shoot the windows?”

Florence said she arrived by scooter a minute or so after.

“It was surreal, everyone was on the ground. No one was moving inside the Petit Cambodge restaurant and everyone was on the ground in bar Carillon,” she said.

“It was very calm — people didn’t understand what was going on. A young girl was being carried in the arms of a young man. She seemed to be dead.”

On Rue Charonne, a little further east, fire engines drive past, their sirens wailing.

A man said he heard shots ring out, in sharp bursts, for two or three minutes.

“I saw several bloody bodies on the ground. I don’t know if they were dead,” he said.

“There was blood everywhere,” said another witness.

Paris Attacks: France Blames ISIS, Vows ‘Merciless’ Response,” NBC News, November 13, 2015

by Cassandra Vinograd, Nancy Ing, Jason Cumming and Matthew Grimson

PARIS — French President Francois Hollande blamed ISIS for orchestrating the worst attacks on the country’s soil since World War II as Paris woke up to a nightmare on Saturday.

A state of emergency was declared and France deployed 1,500 troops after a near-simultaneous series of explosions and shootings brought the city to a horrified standstill overnight. The death toll rose to 127 and around 200 other people were wounded, officials said.

French police were hunting possible accomplices of eight assailants, who attacked concert-goers, cafe diners and soccer fans in a coordinated assault targeting at least six locations in the French capital.

Speaking early Saturday, Hollande pointed the finger at ISIS for the “cowardly” attacks which he described as an “act of war” organized from abroad. He said France remained “unbreakable,” calling for “unity and courage.”

Hollande added: “We will work alongside our allies to fight this terrorist menace … France is strong and even if she is wounded she will get up always and nothing will hold her down, even if we are feeling the grief now … We will defend ourselves.”

Earlier, Hollande vowed to be “merciless” with the nation’s foes.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the violence, which came less than a year after deadly attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket drove home the threat of Islamist terrorism here. However, ISIS supporters praised and celebrated the attacks on social media. The militant group has previously threatened attacks in France due to its military operations against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

“This time it’s war,” pronounced Saturday’s front page of Le Parisien newspaper. “War in the middle of Paris” echoed Le Figaro.

    At least one in ten of the French population are Muslim & if only 5% are radicalised that is something like 3 million French citizens – that are at best anti French. That is without the freedom of other like minded Muslims to roam around Europe without even the need of a passport – because the are in the Schengen area. They can freely transport arms, ammunition & the terrorists to use them. Thank God Britain did not sign the Schengen Agreement! Britain must leave the EU & regain total control of her borders or we will see atrocities like the Paris massacre. Britain must be ultra careful who they give the ‘right to remain’ to. Citizens of the Middle East, Pakistan, Bangladesh & parts of North Africa should be dissuaded from coming to live in Europe!

    My thoughts & sympathies of course go out to the innocent French people who lost their lives in a shameful act of indescribable brutality.

      Dissuaded from coming? England needs to be stronger than that. Turn the boats back, Burn down the Jungle in Calais & deport every last occupant. No appeal if your application for asylum is denied, deport immediately. Anyone entering the country illegally to be transferred to off shore detention knowing they will NEVER be settled in the UK. No paper work no entry straight back to where you came from or to the European country that let you cross it’s boarders. Advertising in all Middle East & African countries that you will not be settled in England so don’t come. Cancelling of all dual citizenship. You are either British or you leave taking your 4 wives & 20 kids with you. Time to get REALLY harsh. NO MORE PROTECTION OF ISLAM, no more appeasing & special treatment. If you are on a visa or awaiting results of asylum applications & you commit a crime, ANY crime, Visa cancelled, application denied & deported back to where you came from. Use RAF transports so they can’t disrupt commercial airlines & the Royal Navy to turn boats around & also take deportees beak to their home lands. Hopefully that should “dissuade” them

        “Off shore detention”… Great idea! Deport to Elba, Devil’s Island, and the like. Just make sure the Navy prohibits unauthorized access to any other craft but those bringing in detainees and supplies. When those are full, there ARE lots of other similar places to fill up.
        Can’t be any worse than what the “refugees” claim to be escaping from. And far safer.

    These suicide bombers need to be buried with dead pigs.

      Oh no!!…Can’t possibly do that, might upset the moderate (if there is such a thing?) muslims!!

  • Michael Copeland

    “This is an act of war”, says President Hollande. The next sentence should be “Consequently, France is at war with Islamic State”.
    That sentence never comes.

    Islamic State is acting a little early.

    It’s time to realize that Islam is so much more than a religion. It is a legal and political system that feels no respect for any other. It doesn’t deserve the protection of a religion and in a practical sense it is proving suicidal for those who do extend this protection.

  • Paul Mitchell

    “THIS IS AN ACT OF WAR”: French President Hollande Confirms – It was an ACT OF WAR the FIRST TIME they attacked you when they hit “Charlie Hebdo” and attacked french citizens in that market store!!….So what’s different now?….the number of dead I suppose?….So hundreds more had to die before the French Gov. finally got off their asses to do something….and far too late to shut your borders, because you’ve ALREADY LET THEM IN!!

    • MAS

      As well as the major car burning and assault Muslim riots that happened before Hebdo. Took awhile to wake up and smell the coffee, if they actually did. They are French after all and this time the USA is too weakened by our Dear Leader to bail them (and the rest of Europe) out. Europe you have made your filthy bed, enjoy it.

    • Steve Brown

      If French President Hollande believes that the recent attacks in Paris were an act of Jihadist war then tell Hollande to destroy these two oil fields: 1. Ghawar in Saudi Arabia 2. The Al Shaheen oil field in Qatar. Unless you hit em in their pocketbooks the terror will keep getting worse.

    Europe is being overrun by the sword of allah because as a society en mass, they have turned away from the law of God and the love of God as is shown through the gospel of Jesus. And now God is bringing upon them the consequences of turning away. How sad…but this is what two centuries of leftist ideology will bring to a culture: it promises the liberty of man (like the french revolution) but in reality delivers death and destruction. Am afraid soon to be coming to Canada and America.

    ‘Merciless’. ‘pitiless’ response to an act of war? Come now. France is not going to bri ng back the great National Razor to rremove the trrorists and their allies and accomplices. France is not about to clear out the ‘no-go’ zones of the Muslim banlieux. France is not about to march them to the Med’ and tell them to start swimming across to Algeria and Morocco. France is not about to put down Islam, raze the mosques, or whatever it takes to eliminate the menace from her soil. So, until we see serious action, we will see the Invasion/Conquest proceed almost unhindered.

    I think Mark Steyn, Andrew McCarthy and Daniel Pipes have this one right.
    After all the hoopla, nobody is going to do much of anything.

    The Elites are all too committed to this multi-culti, Coudenhaven-Kalergi scheme and the ability of social welfare/engineering schemes o fix anything that goes wrong with it, never mind that these schemes have actually exacerbated the problems they were intended to address.

    This was nasty, but hardly “apocalyptic”. Just wait.

    As for “Everyone,,,, putting in their best efforts in the day to come,” forget that, too.
    The Socialist Agenda has been aimed at demonizing and marginalizing exactly the sort of people whom a nation could always count on in a crisis.
    No one is supposed to be “masculine” anymore.
    It’s “racist” or “chauvinist”, “militarist” or whatever the “,,,ism” of the week is.
    Think the IS Euro-Volunteers are disappointed with a lack of Starbucks?
    Call up all your Froggy Socialist Girly Boys and try stuffing them into a uniform!
    Try making any demands upon them!
    There’s a climate change on the way, all right, and it’s going to get hot but it’s got nothing to do with the weather.
    They’re going to kill you, Hollande. You, personally.
    That kind of makes all the social demographics a little more interesting.
    Eh?
    But it’s not going to change anything.
    It remains for something truly “apocalyptic” to occur before anything really changes.
    This is just the beginning.
    And it’s too late to do much anything about it, anyway.

    The French should steal a page from America, circa 1941/42 when Japanese and those of Japanese descent, were rounded up and interned for the duration of the war. Putting Islamic ‘radicals’ and those connected to them IN ANY WAY should be treated the same UNTIL such time (which will be NEVER) that ‘hostilities with Islam’s adherents ends. They can ‘volunteer’ to be repatriated (but only after an explosive tracking device has been implanted in such a way that it would take a major hospital and a highly skilled surgeon to remove it without it exploding) to their own countries.
    Those who want to run for election in ANY Western nation should be required to prove that they’ve read AND UNDERSTAND the Qu’ran and how it shapes Muslim thinking. Same applies to Sharia and how it is TOTALLY incompatible with Western Civilization.
    That being said, Americans! Avail yourselves of your 2nd Amendment Rights so you can protect all the other Amendments. And yourselves. Concealed carry in public will help reduce (it won’t stop) the deaths of innocent civilians. And as much as I don’t even like thinking it, let alone writing it, when the first such attack(s) take place here at home the same suggestion made above should become reality. IF they’re innocents they’ll understand and cooperate as did the Japanese. if not, they’ll be known for what they are and be dealt with accordingly.
    It’s a drastic measure, but consider this: the Japanese were downright civil and polite in war compared to what these “radical” Muslims are.

  • Stephen Honig

    Duh! We need Hollande’s confirmation that the attacks were by Muslims. Maybe he’s wrong and it could be an orthodox rabbi, priest, Hindu priest or even a Buddhist monk. This is what Obama’s thinking.
