France: Jihad terror plotters include 65-year-old former Legionnaire who converted to Islam


Yesterday the Geller Report brought you the news of arrests of jihad terrorists all across France. Now here is a report from France on the arrests, giving more details. It turns out that one of the jihad plotters is Frederic Renet, a 65-year-old former Legionnaire who converted to Islam.

This sounds like Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter. ISIS claimed that he was a recent convert to Islam, and ISIS does not have a history of claiming attacks that are not their own. The ISIS claim was widely dismissed. We were told that because Paddock was white and 64, it was unlikely that he would be a convert to Islam. Why? Islam is ideological – it’s not a race or an age. It’s a belief system. And now we learn of Frederic Renet, a 65-year-old man who converted to Islam and started plotting jihad mass murder.

Renet explodes a good deal of the official story about Paddock, whose actions have never been adequately explained by police or the FBI. The official story has been changed and contradicted so often, it is impossible to tell what really happened.

We need a full, open and honest investigation. We are not getting it.

Here is a translation of the French news story, courtesy Geller Report reader Alexandre:

They are young people between 18 and 28 years old, except one of them, Frederic Renet, 65 years old, former legionnaire converted to radical Islam. A terrorist team formed, but not yet a specific target Several of these young people have admitted to being part of the IS custody as part of their custody and some have confirmed their willingness to commit an attack in France, according to Sophie Neumayer (France 3). The journalist said that the individuals were arrested before their target and the date of their passage to the act. An ex-legionnaire converted to radical Islam: Frederic becomes Yasin Frédéric Renet, a 65-year-old legionnaire tempted by armed violence, converted to radical Islam and took the name of Yasin. The person is suspected of having put his physical skills to the service of the cell Menton reports La Provence. Frédéric Renet was legionnaire in three regiments of the Foreign Legion, including the 2nd REP of Calvi. A “pretended imam” Switzerland is one of the 8 suspects Among the suspects is also a self-proclaimed imam known to the judiciary, as we reported on Thursday. The man would be one of the leaders of this terrorist project. The eight suspects were presented to a judge and indicted.
