The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “French arrest suspect in soldier’s stabbing” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2013/05/2013529949316613.html).
“Paris prosecutors say (a) man, named Alexandre D, admitted to attacking French soldier in a neighborhood”.
“French authorities have arrested a man suspected of stabbing a 22-year-old French soldier. Prosecutors say that he has admitted to the attack and was probably motivated by “religious IDEOLOGY“. People who have rigid “ideologies”, of course, show/demonstrate LACK OF TOLERANCE for others.
“Paris prosecutor Xavier Molins said the man, named as Alexandre D and who turns 22 on Thursday (May 30, 2013), was a convert to Islam who had bought two KNIVES and said a Muslim prayer shortly before stabbing Private First Class Cedric Cordiez in the neck on Saturday (May 25, 2013)”. “two knives” suggests that Alexandre D. was PREPARING FOR this attack.
“The suspect, who was detained on Wednesday (May 29, 2013), carried out the attack just days after the killing of a British soldier in London by men SHOUTING religious slogans“. “shouting religious slogans” is just what religious EXTREMISTS are known for/do.
French Interior Minister Manuel Valls told iTele television: “He was known [to police], but we cannot speak of RADICAL Islamism. I remain VERY cautious“. This is a MUST, given the violent reaction to the film INNOCENCE OF MUSLIMS.
The suspect, known to police for crimes such as THEFT and POSSESSION OF FIREARMS, was arrested in a Paris suburb early on Wednesday (May 29, 2013) after being identified through fingerprints, a police source told the Reuters news agency”.
“(The) AFP news agency identified the site of arrest as Yvelines, just west of Paris.
“Cedric Cordiez was attacked FROM BEHIND with a KNIFE or BOX CUTTER while patrolling the La Defense business neighborhood, a busy underground shopping and transport hub, west of Paris”. “attacks from behind”, again, of course, are EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE and can be EXTREMELY HARMFUL. Also, “box cutters” are FRIGHTENING because these were used in the attacks back on SEPTEMBER 11 2001 (Web-site/URL: http://archives.cnn.com/2001/US/09/23/inv.investigation.terrorism/).
“He was released from hospital on Monday (May 27, 2013)”.
Finally, “Al Jazeera‘s David Chater, reporting from Paris, said: “We have a few details that have been released by both the Interior Ministry and the French police. Apparently they got to him by having VERY, VERY CLEAR clear CCTV images of the actual attack and they saw this 22-year-old man praying before the attack. He was wearing a BLACK sweater apparently with a belt around it. They say the indications are that this was a PRE-PLANNED attack, then he launched the attack on the soldier, STABBING HIM IN THE NECK“. Again, “stabbing” is EXTREMELY VIOLENT.
To conclude, once again, this reinforces how DEEPLY TROUBLING religious extremists are. TERRORISM IS UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT/MICROSCOPE ONCE AGAIN.
