1. It is now official that the Paris knife jihadi was Islamic, it was an IS motivated attack, and the fellow is named and from Chechnia.
French authorities have identified the slain suspect in a deadly Paris knife attack as Khamzat Azimov, a naturalized French citizen who was born in Russia’s Chechnya region in 1997.
Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said on May 13 that Azimov attained French citizenship in 2010 “following his mother.”
Griveaux also said Azimov had been registered in a Paris police database in 2016 as a person “with propensity for radical actions.”
Azimov, who reportedly moved to Strasbourg with his parents after arriving from Chechnya, was shot dead by police after killing a 29-year-old man and injuring four others on May 12 in a neighborhood near the Opera Garnier.

3. More on Paris
This Euronews is a rather sterling example of EU Narrative propaganda. Two things to note. Using something very akin to the Islamic concept of ‘kitman’, they try and make the inference that the attacker is Russian, and they quote not what the attacker said, but a deliberate mistranslation without saying he was shouting the Arabic, “alah hu ackbar”. Possibly to give a false impression of the motive, but certainly to deflect from the Islamic one.

Thank you all who are paying attention. Who send in news, and point out the propaganda we are being fed on a minute-by-minute basis.
Great and terrible things are happening now everywhere and often. This is the time to hold on to one’s wits.
