    Terrorist Attacks in Paris (248)

    According to preliminary estimates, Friday's attacks left at least 127 people dead and more than 100 injured.

    Friday's Paris attacks are an "act of war" and Islamic State is behind them, French President Francois Hollande said Saturday.

    "This is an act of war, and a terrorist army, the Islamic State, jihadists that made a stand against France, against the values we protect around the world, is behind this attack," Hollande said in a televised address.

    "I have signed a decree declaring a national three-day mourning," Hollande said.

    The French president added that on Monday he would address the parliament that will convene for an extraordinary meeting in Versailles."

    Hollande confirmed that 127 people died and many more were injured on Friday night after gun and bomb attacks hit seven venues around Paris.

    One of the bombings took place near the Stade de France stadium, on the northern outskirts of Paris, where the president attended a friendly football match between France and Germany.

      That's what you get for sponsoring illegal regime change. The people said no but the polititions would not listen. Now the chickens are comming home to roost. Sorry to say we told you so.

      This incident is created to force some Nato countries to intervene in Syria and achieve their objectives to remove Assad and also to obliterate ISIS from the scene as ISIS's function is deemed over. The Russian plane crash was planned by Nato so that Russia is demoralized and will eventually leave Syria. All were planned by the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization with the direction of the US. But ISIS might be retained by the US for further terrorist activities across the globe. It is more convenient to use non state actors for the US at the moment, as it could hide in the background like a good Samaritan.

      Let's see what is going to happen! ISIS must be defeated undoubtedly!

      And who was it who FUNDED them, you fat talentless Zionist moron, Hollande?????????

      I found what seems to be a decent website. I don't see how suspicious events that just happen to support intervention in Syria by the West can keep being accepted. The website also has one about the apparent Charlie Hebdo false flag attack, which had similar circumstances, "dropped ID" and other suspicious aspects.

      The 11/13 Paris Suicide Bombing.

      The news broke yesterday evening or very early this morning that there was a "suicide bombing" in Paris. "ISIL" has been blamed. I didn't see the initial reports because I went to bed much earlier than usual.

      My wife came to bed in the wee hours and woke me up: "Husband, there a bomber in Paris - many are dead!

      "Yes, I know; we've been expecting a false flag attack in Paris for some time."

      "False Flag? You don't think this is real?"

      "No I don't. That doesn't mean their deaths aren't real; it's like 9/11 - everything the government said about that, every word was a lie except for the fact that the buildings are destroyed and nearly 3000 died as a result. Next thing they will tell us is they find a perfectly preserved magic passport in the wreckage. You'll see."

      This morning when I got up at around 7:00 I got on line, opened Sputnik's home page and what did I find? "Breaking: Syrian Passport Found Near Body..." You can't make this stuff up. I took a screen shot just to preserve the moment.

      When will the people of this world decide they've had enough, drag these ruthless bloody bastards of House Rothschild into the streets and smash their evil heads? The world will not know peace until the Khazarian Mafia has been destroyed. The longer we wait pushing patience to the limit, the worse things for us will become, and we've been warned. If we don't stop them before the so-called "Greater Israel" project is completed, we won't ever be able to stop them short of an all-out Nuclear Exchange.

      But the Government and the Pentagon are shot through with Israel First traitors, they are the ones who are preventing the Military from doing its duty to put a stop to this before they have destroyed everything. You know them as the "Neo-Cons." They want a one world government, i.e. the New World Order. If anyone stands in their way, then they will destroy the world if they can't have what they want.

      This goes back to the early 11th Century. The Russians and their allies should have killed every single one of them in Khazaria, instead of allowing them to disperse and spread their error throughout the world.

      I know it sounds like I'm making this HUGE leap in logic, but when you know what's at the bottom of this so-called Syrian civil war that was started by Israel serving their purposes of their "Greater Israel" project, then it's very easy to point directly to the source of the problem. It's this illegitimate and evil entity that the world has sanctioned and protected while it grew ever stronger and plotted our demise. To kill a snake, you must cut off its head.

      This has NOTHING to do with the Will of God; it has EVERYTHING to do with the plots of the fallen one, our accuser, and our destroyer. If this was truly "of God," then the way would have been cleared voluntarily, to re-establish the Kingdom. But that didn't happen. and it's just not real, so why are we resisting recognizing it for what it is, and why are we abetting this enemy? Because we look forward so much to the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning Israel that we are willing to bring them to pass artificially instead of allowing God to determine the timing. This is presumption in the extreme, and shame on all you Israel First Christians who have betrayed everything protecting it.

      Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes! Matthew 18:7 (NKJV)

      marcanhalt, Tony Cartalucci is already in front of this. That's the question he has in his article.

      "Act of war"? Sounds exactly like G. W. Bush in 2001. In the States it led to Patriot Act, in Europe it will lead to official mobilization of the already deployed to Europe US soldiers - well trained in Jude Helm drills how to deal with local population of occupied states. We may experience a couple of more attacks like this in Paris, the goal is we ask for US soldiers to "protect" us. Hope, Europeans are smarter and braver than that.

      No, Mr Hollande, you know better, after all you are a minion for the Rothschild Cabal. All going according to the plans laid out by Bush/Clinton way back before 9/11 and certainly in line with Project for the New American Century. Don't forget the 21 goals of the Bilderberg:
      So far, with Angela Merkel's help, national identity is being destroyed.

      vvj3080, well said. Also obvious is how this has happened at a time of the G20 meeting. A convenient time for all the neo-con patsy's to re-negotiate there allegiance to the septic (US) course!!!
    • marcanhaltin reply tojas(Show commentHide comment)
      jas, The problem I have with all of this, is the timing of Hollande's public announcement shortly after its beginning and his conclusions as to who was responsible. Could it be, like George W Bush, he was made privy to this event long before it happened? I mean Hollande was on the air WiTHOUT the benefit of any cabinet meeting and telling everyone exactly what went down. If you think that I think that this was all scripted beforehand, you would be right. And why all the fuss from the paper when the attacks in Iraq and Lebanon were hardly worth mentioning by the same Western press that is fondling all over France?

      vvj3080, Where is your evidence of these slanderous statements?
    • samantha956in reply tomarcanhalt(Show commentHide comment)
      marcanhalt, If you read your facts you will find out that Hollande was in the stadium where some of the explosions occurred. Geez guys, instead of spitting out your rhetoric and accusations read the facts...
    • marcanhaltin reply tosamantha956(Show commentHide comment)
      samantha956, In the stadium? Why was the press running to the stadium to get the scoop but being denied to it instead of being there to cover the remarks Hollande was suppose to be making to them from his office? Don't be pitiful in your conclusions.
    • samantha956
      He was rushed out of the stadium when explosions were heard. Since the crowd in the stadium did not panic, thinking it was sound effects they stayed and watched the rest of the game. You can imagine the stampede which would have occurred if the people inside knew what was going on. 80,000 people trampling over each other to get out would have resulted in more deaths and injuries. After Hollande was rushed out he was taken to a secure place where he eventually addressed the people of his country and the world. The facts, just the facts please!
