Meanwhile, in other news, Sudanese Muslim kills two in France
While you were obediently sheltering in place and socially distancing to self isolate out of an abundance of caution you might have missed other news about some people who took advantage of the situation.
For instance, in a town outside France's third-largest city, Lyon, a Sudanese Muslim refugee person of color stabbed two people to death while severely injuring seven others. Proud of himself, he then screamed the Muslim go-to phrase, "Allahu Akbar," (Arabic for: [Muslim] god is great[er]; implied--your god isn't) as he begged the French police to kill him and thus martyr him -- an honor -- for his Muslim beliefs and actions. As a Muslim martyr he would go directly to Muslim heaven where those supposed 72 virgins await him, among other delights and honors.
However, the French police, racist -- or something -- as they are, denied him the pleasure of the next world and merely arrested him in this world; later arresting two of his friends.
Three Sudanese refugees were in custody in France today following the first terrorist attack in Europe during the coronavirus lockdown - raising fears that they were part of an ISIS-style cell.One, identified as 33-year-old Abdallah A.O, stabbed two people to death and severely wounded seven others during a bloody rampage in the French town of Romans-sur-Isère, south of Lyon, on Saturday. (snip)Detectives later found extremist literature in his house, including a complaint by Abdallah that he hated 'living in a country of non-believers'. (snip)All are thought to have entered France in early 2017, and were seeking asylum having complained about persecution in the east African country.Now investigators are trying to work out whether they made up a terrorist cell linked to extremist Islamists in Sudan. (snip)His attack on Saturday corresponded to numerous suicidal knife attacks carried out by Islamic State-linked terrorists in France in recent years. (snip)The Sudanese are one of the biggest groups seeking asylum in France, with many fleeing violence and extreme poverty in the Darfur region, as well as political persecution.
Abdallah should have returned to his native land where certainly life among the "believers" -- his kind of beliefs -- would have outweighed the violence and poverty and political persecution brought about by his fellow believers.
