When story after story popped up about a French gunman who shot up a bank, a left-wing newspaper, and car-jacked someone else in Paris, I thought to myself, “Hmmm . . . is his name, ‘Mohammed’?” Well, I was close enough.
It wasn’t Mohammed, but Abdelhakim. Abdelhaikim Dekhar. You get the point. This wasn’t just some “random crazy guy,” just like the guy who shot up several locations, including a French Jewish school in Lyon, was not just some “random crazy guy.” France is overrun with Muslim immigrants and their progeny, who kidnap and murder Jews (see Ilan Halimi) and who have infected the country with extremism and poverty. There are so many Muslims now in France, no one has an exact number, but it’s estimated that they are at least 20% of the country and perhaps as many as 35% (and growing). France will soon be a Muslim majority country. And more of these incidents are going to keep happening. It’s a preview for America’s future, of which we’ve already had many previews on our own soil (see, the 9/11 Hijackers, Fort Hood and Nidal Malik Hassan, the Times Square Bomber Faisal Shahzad, and so on).
Oh, and by the way, Mr. Dekhar recently returned from London, where he’d been living. Hmmm . . . with whom did he meet in London and what were they up to? With which jihadists was he hangin’ out in the UK? Dekhar was convicted of a previous crime in France for his part in a killing spree. (Will France EVER learn?) Apparently, he was taken with leftists and wanted to help them in their violent pursuits, while at the same time pursuing his jihad. Shocker: Muslims allying with leftist criminals. Like that’s never happened before. In fact, it’s the typical M.O.
The lone gunman arrested on Wednesday night for carrying out two shootings and a carjacking in Paris had “recently returned from England”, it was reported on Thursday. In a coup de theatre, police caught the gunman on Wednesday night in an underground carpark and named him as Abdelhakim Dekhar – convicted in 1998 for giving a gun to a leftist couple that went on a “Bonnie-and-Clyde”-style killing spree four years previously.
Hailing his arrest, Manual Valls, the interior minister said that he had “probably been living abroad” for the past few years. A source close to the investigation told AFP that it is thought he was living in the UK, where he is believed to have family. During his 1998 trial, he claimed he was nowhere near the scene of the crime as he was with his sister in London, an alibi his family later denied.
His arrest followed a manhunt underway since Monday morning, when a gunman critically wounded a photographer at the offices of Liberation newspaper, before opening fire on the offices of Société Générale bank in the La Défense district and briefly taking a motorist hostage. Mr Dekhar’s DNA matched genetic prints found on the shotgun cartridges the gunman used and a car he commandeered during Monday’s drama.
Police found “confused” notes on Mr Dekhar containing rants about the situation in Libya and Syria that “might be an attempt to explain his acts”, although they said it was far too early to say whether there was any “political motivation” behind the violence.
Ah, you see what he did? He simultaneously shows us a jihadist (with Islamic reasons for his violent spree) and also leaves “confusing rants,” so he can be dismissed by the usual frauds in the PC crowd as being “just another crazy guy. Islam has nothing to do with it.” Riiiight.
Mr Dekhar – known to have moved in leftist circles – also slammed the French media and capitalism in general as a “fascist plot”, according to the Paris prosecutor. The suspect was previously sentenced to four years in jail for buying a gun used in the 1994 attacks by Florence Rey, a 19-year old political science student, and her lover Audry Maupin, who murdered 3 policemen and a taxi driver in a case that gripped France.
Mr Maupin died in the chase, while Miss Rey, a fresh-faced student from a middle-class family, was a figure of fascination, as she showed no emotion during her trial in which she maintained a stony silence. She had claimed that Mr Dekhar, 46, was the “third man” in their killing spree. He escaped charges of being a full-scale accomplice but was convicted of association with criminals in 1998, walking free aged 33 after the verdict as he had already served time awaiting trial. . . .
A police source said Mr Dekhar had “shown no signs of life” since his trial and that his DNA would not be in the national database as “there were no genetic print files at the time (he was arrested)”. Despite being caught by several CCTV cameras, Mr Dekhar managed to evade capture by changing clothes regularly. . . .
This is no crazy. He’s a trained professional who’s been away plotting and planning for a decade.
While Mr Dekhar’s motives are still not known, he remains an elusive character. In his trial, he claimed to be working as an Algerian spy tasked with infiltrating leftist groups to unearth possible links with Islamist terrorists. Algeria denied this. Court psychologists dubbed him an individual with “mythomaniac tendencies”. “He’s a strange, enigmatic man,” Emmanuelle Hauser-Phalizon, his former lawyer, told AFP.
PUH-LEEZE. The only strange, enigmatic thing here is the French refusal to face facts about what this guy is: a cold, calculating JIHADIST. Hellooooo . . . ?
