Three mosques shut down in anti-terror raids as officers seize 330 war weapons

POLICE investigating the Paris terror attacks have shut down three mosques in a series of raids to close the net on Islamic extremists.

On Wednesday, French police shut down three mosques as part of anti-terror operations
Police in France also arrested the owner of a revolver found during Wednesday’s raid, France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.
Security officials found jihadist documents at the mosque where yesterday’s raids took place.
They have placed nine people under house arrest. Another 22 have been banned from leaving the country Mr Cazeneuve said.
France has been under a state of emergency since 130 people were killed in a series of terror attacks in Paris on November 13. Since then, some 2,235 homes and buildings have been raided, 232 people taken into custody, and 334 weapons confiscated.
Cazeneuve said the number of weapons apprehended so far is staggering.
He said: “In 15 days we have seized one-third of the quantity of war-grade weapons that are normally seized in a year.”

Thank God that they were able to do this before more people got hurt.

Yet, leftists may certainly say that this is “racist” or “bigoted” against the "new influx of Islamic refugees."


Brexit should serve as a wake up call to Europe. It is not to say that the maority of Europeans on average are not good hearted people who want to extend their hands and homes to people in need.
But neither do they want to be made patsies. Islamists in Europe cannot and should not be tolerated.

Aiding and abetting Islamists is not just a criminal matter, but a matter of high treason. Mosques need to be shut down when they are found doing that, and individuals who engage in the same need to be shut right out of Europe.

Rotherham demonstrated amply to the people of England that the faceless bureaucracy of the status quo did not have the people’s best interest at heart. If the elites want to keep their positions of power and prestige, they need to ensure that they show as much passion in shutting down and shutting out these kind of enemy agents as the people themselves do.

Charges of racism and xenophobia and fascism will only go so far in cowing people into submission. People are going to strike back at the first available opportunity against a bureacracy that is indifferent even to the sexual abuse of children in their pursuit of a cheap labor pool to draw workers from.

A well observed point.
