The Islamic terrorist attack in Paris, France, that killed more than 130 people, including one American, failed to arouse the wrath of President Barack Obama against Islamic terrorists. Only days later, when two terrorists ambushed an office full of local government workers in San Bernardino, the President and the majority of the Democrat politicians responded to the death of 14 Americans by complaining about people exercising their constitutional right to bear arms.
The world to many appears to have been turned upside-down by the current political classes with the French becoming serious about defeating the jihadists while far too many America’s leaders are seeking to punish citizens of their own country.
Unlike America after the San Bernardino attack, France immediately jumped into action that included government officials ordering police counterterrorism units to begin raiding certain mosques. French cops had complained that far too many Muslims living in French communities are hardly forthcoming and helpful by providing information to police or intelligence officers.
“In 15 days we have seized one-third of the quantity of war-grade weapons that are normally seized in a year,” France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve recently noted:
And many French leaders have joined those voices in the EU calling for an end to importing Syrian Islamic refugees, as a proper screening process is impossible. Compare that to the response we saw from President Barack Obama, who tried to blame the attacks on San Bernardino on “workplace violence” for days, while calling on his Attorney General to prosecute those who speak out against radical Islam.
And despite French detectives being called racists or Islamophobes, a large Parisian mosque was raided this week anyway. And the raid proved fruitful for the police officers and for the French people: they uncovered weapons, ammunition and box loads of propaganda videotapes produced by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The mosque’s imam was also discovered possessing an illegal handgun that was hidden with a number of terrorist documents.
The cops also discovered audio recordings of Middle Eastern chants “glorifying the martyrs of jihad linked to the terrorist organization [Al Nusra Front] the Syrian branch of core al-Qaida.
“The recordings were found among a wealth of teaching material for young people in an undeclared madrassa, or religious school. Police removed a hard disk and 10 computers. No request was made to open a private school,” the state prefecture said in a statement.
French cops managed to nab more than 230 muslims and collected caches of weapons. A number of other suspects are under travel bans and house arrest.
Compare that to the response we saw from President Barack Obama, who tried to blame the attacks on San Bernardino on “workplace violence” for days, while calling on his Attorney General to prosecute those who speak out against radical Islam. Meanwhile, the Democrats and their Super PAC, the news media, are seeking to diminish the people’s right to protect themselves from enemies foreign of domestic with new gun laws.
