More Fallout from Paris Attack

by lizard

After the ridiculous photo-op comprised of hypocrites and state-funded western terrorists (but absent high-level U.S. representation) it seems the solidarity quickly evaporated.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, joined the crazed conspiracy theorists with a stunning outburst:

It was less than 48 hours ago when Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, joined millions marching in Paris to pay tribute to the 17 people killed by ISIS-supporting extremists. Then, almost the moment he got back, things changed, and as the FT politely paraphrases what transpired, the “country’s president struck a much more confrontational tone.” That’s one way of putting it. Another is that the former PM and current president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of NATO-member Turkey did the unthinkable: accused the west, and French citizens in particular, of staging the Charlie Hebdo murder in order to blame Muslims, even as the mayor of Ankara said “Mossad is definitely behind such incidents . . . it is boosting enmity towards Islam.”

“The duplicity of the west is obvious,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a press conference on Monday evening. “As Muslims we have never sided with terror or massacres: racism, hate speech, Islamophobia are behind these massacres.”

His punchline: “The culprits are clear: French citizens undertook this massacre and Muslims were blamed for it,” he added.

The FT is confused: “Although political leaders in Turkey have repeatedly condemned the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, a Jewish supermarket and a policewoman, a parallel narrative has emerged in the country, with conspiracy theorists blaming the murders on foreign intelligence agencies rather than radical Islamists.”

It’s not just the French who were said to be behind the attack: so is Mossad:

Melih Gokcek, mayor of Ankara for the ruling AK party, said on Monday that “Mossad [the Israeli intelligence service] is definitely behind such incidents . . . it is boosting enmity towards Islam.” Mr Gokcek linked the attacks to French moves towards recognising Palestine.

Ali Sahin, a member of Turkey’s parliament and foreign affairs spokesman for the AK party, last week set out eight reasons why he suspected the killings were staged so that “the attack will be blamed on Muslims and Islam”.

In more stunning news, France appears determined to learn absolutely nothing from the attack that is absurdly referred to as their 9/11. First, the resolve to bomb more Muslims:

France’s lower house of Parliament on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved extending French airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Iraq.

The vote came after France’s worst terrorist attacks in decades. Last week in Paris, a man claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group killed four people in a kosher grocery and a policewoman, while two brothers that he knew for years claimed ties to al-Qaida in Yemen as they killed 12 people at a newspaper office.

“France is at war with terrorism, jihadism and radical Islamism,” Prime Minister Manuel Valls told the National Assembly to thundering applause ahead of the vote. “France is not at war with a religion. France is not at war with Islam and Muslims.”

If this is true, shouldn’t France be bombing Saudi Arabia and Qatar? No, the jihadists those terrorist regimes fund and train are useful tools when fighting the Assad regime in Syria.

Second, the problem of free speech is also being taken care of:

France ordered prosecutors around the country Wednesday to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses since the Paris terror attacks.

The order came as Charlie Hebdo’s defiant new issue sold out before dawn around Paris, with scuffles at kiosks over dwindling copies of the satirical newspaper fronting the Prophet Muhammad.

Like many European countries, France has strong laws against hate speech and especially anti-Semitism in the wake of the Holocaust. In a message distributed to all French prosecutors and judges, the Justice Ministry laid out the legal basis for rounding up those who defend the Paris terror attacks as well as those responsible for racist or anti-Semitic words or acts.

Among those detained was Dieudonne, a controversial, popular comic with repeated convictions for racism and anti-Semitism.

Ah yes, anti-semitism. That accusation has been levied against this blog recently as well. It’s too bad the historical victimhood of Jews during WWII renders any criticism of the Israel as anti-semitism. Is there anything that Israelis can do that would be so outlandish as to actually warrant condemnation? Like, let’s say, threatening to kill journalists? From the link:

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris last week Haaretz published a daring cartoon juxtaposing journalists* killed in Gaza by Israel during the brutal summer slaughter with the journalists killed at the office of the satirical magazine in Paris. This set off a chain reaction which ultimately led to calls for murdering Haaretz journalists after Ronen Shoval, founder of the neo-Zionist and proto-fascist Im Tirtzu movement, called for an investigation of the newspaper’s editors.

Here is on of the statements calling for the death of Haartz journalists:

‘With God’s help, the journalists at Haaretz will be murdered just like in France’

Hopefully the Judaic God won’t oblige.

All in all, it appears things are getting back to normal. France will bomb Muslims and arrest people for “hate speech” as anti-semetic conspiracy theorists speculate on Mossad involvement and Israeli terrorists pray for God to murder journalists.

And so it goes…


  1. ‘With God’s help, the journalists at Haaretz will be murdered just like in France’

    I’m thinking that you’re misunderstanding the quote. Since Muslims overwhelming kill other Muslims proportionally the Israelis are hoping on them killing their own.

      I think you misunderstand the world.

      • Actually I’m tormented by my intellectual insight.

        • So are we all.

    Lune river, wider than a mile
    I’m crossing you in style some day
    Oh dream maker, you heart breaker
    Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way
    Two drifters off to see the world
    There’s such a lot of world to see
    We’re after the same rainbow’s end
    Waiting ’round the bend, my huckleberry friend
    Lune river and me

    • Cari, have you ever wondered about this dynamic of the group “claiming responsibility” for some horrible deed? Have you thought about how easy it might be for anyone with a computer to pretend to be anyone?

      Of course you haven’t! What the hell is wrong with me?

      • Confusing Craig with Cari?

        I’ve met Craig he’s no Cari.

        Have you even considered what is really happening? http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/cdc5c064-96c0-11e4-922f-00144feabdc0.html#axzz3Ookv7J4o

          You advocating that Erdogan should be the next target for a color revolution? Or should we just throw Turkey out of NATO?

          • Craig Moore

            Erdogan is playing a very dangerous game. His racism is evident for all to see in his French citizens versus Muslims comment. There are millions of French citizens that embrace Islam. It is beyond laughable to bite on his claim, “As Muslims we have never sided with terror or massacres…? Really? I’m sure all the kidnapped young girls and murdered people in Nigeria agree with him. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/14/boko-haram-deadliest-attack-baga-nigeria-politics-insurgency

              Just answer my question.

              • Craig Moore

                “No” is my answer.

              • JC

                Good.

              • Craig Moore

                Hai.

      • SO that’s what’s “really” happening. Silly me. I forgot to go to Craig’s one trusted source.

    Those who accept the simplistic miss the long-range purpose of events like this. Who will be surprised when Charlie is used as an excuse to further control freedom of expression and restart France’s bombing campaign in Libya? It’s worked before, and has become SOP.

    “We discover that the leaders of the left and right shared the anti-religious, anti-national and anti-militarist values of the very leftist Charlie Hebdo. We knew that its founder, Philippe Val, was a friend of the Sarkozys. Suddenly we discover that its new manager, Charb, was the companion of a right-wing minister, Jeannette Bougrab.”

    “It’s not only the political class that took the opportunity hog the blankets. So did the press. It sees in Charlie Hebdo an example of the very freedom of press it keeps trampling, self-censoring constantly and always showing solidarity with crimes committed abroad by the government.

    The French press is indeed numerous, but extremely conformist and therefore not pluralistic. This is so right up to the unanimity with which it presents Charlie Hebdo. For, contrary to what it claims, the satirical newspaper proclaimed its opposition to freedom of expression, notably when it was petitionning to ban the National Front or campaigning for censorship of the internet.”

    Here’s an interesting conspiracy take on why Obama didn’t show up in France. It also helps to explain why a French police commissioner was “suicided” a few hours after attempting to get a warrant for Obama’s arrest.

    An absolutely stunning Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today appears to show why all top US officials failed to join their counterparts in Paris yesterday who marched in solidarity against the Charlie Hebdo Massacre as it reveals a top French police commissioner was “suicided” within hours of his attempting to obtain a European Arrest Warrant for President Barack Obama and other as yet unnamed American leaders.

    According to this report, French police Commissioner Helric Fredou was tasked immediately after the 7 January Charlie Hebdo Massacre with the examination of documents contained in a small backpack found in the getaway car used by the killers Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, and which contained the driver’s license/identity card of Saïd.

    Also discovered by Police Commissioner Fredou in this small backpack, SVR analyst in this report say, were a number of “cryptic documents” and telephone numbers, one of the most important being a US cell-phone number “directly linked” to former US general and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director David Petraeus.

    Upon Police Commissioner Fredou’s discovery of this “Petraeus-link”, this report further states, SVR signals intelligence data show he contacted Paris prosecutor François Molins and requested that the Cour D’assises (Assize Court) issue an immediate European Arrest Warrant for President Barack Obama and “other” such American officials to be named within 24 hours.

    Within 3 hours of Police Commissioner Fredou making this request, however, this report continues, his body was found by his desk in his office with a single gunshot to the head at 0100hr on Thursday 8 January that was quickly ruled a suicide; and Obama regime officials began flooding the US media with reports that former CIA director Petraeus was in danger of being arrested on felony charges relating to classified materials found in his mistresses possession.

      Jesus, I read about the suicide but not this additional context.

        Careful, you’ll fly off into la-la land if you follow this tangent. ;-)

    Has anybody here read the book by William R. Forstchen called “Day of Wrath?”

    If you’ve got an extra $3.99 I recommend you download it for your kindle app.

    • In it, evil ISIS threatens to overrun America. It’s really really scary. Could happen too.
