This is the France that Macron and Hollande and their predecessors and colleagues have made. This is the new, multicultural France. The French people better get used to this, because there is going to be a great deal more of it.

“‘VENGEANCE FOR SYRIA!’ Trebes hostage horror – ‘ISIS’ gunman kills butcher, takes eight hostages and shoots cop in French supermarket,” by Jay Akbar and Peter Allen, The Sun, March 23, 2018:

A SUSPECTED ISIS gunman shot at cops and killed a butcher before taking eight hostages at a French supermarket today, reports claim.

The attacker was heard screaming “Vengeance for Syria!” before going on a rampage in Trebes, south-east of Toulouse.

He is understood to have fired six shots at a group of police officers who were jogging down the street, hitting one in the shoulder, leaving him in a life-threatening condition.

The attacker then stormed the Super U store in a suspected terror attack and killed a store worker who is understood to be a butcher.

“A butcher in the U-Supermarket has been shot dead,” according an unnamed source in the town.

“The gunman was heard shouting slogans about the war in Syria. He says he is representing Islamic State.”

“He pulled out a gun and fired five times, wounding one officer,” said another source in Trebes who claims to have seen the man carrying grenades.

Trebes mayor Eric Menassi confirmed the attack and said seven hostages have since been released, leaving the gunman alone in the supermarket with another police officer.

Police are reported to have surrounded the supermarket in southern France.

French Interior Ministry earlier confirmed an operation was underway at the supermarket but gave no further details on reports of a hostage situation.

AFP has reported that ISIS took responsibility for the attack but the weakened terror group often does this as a propaganda tool, even when it is not associated with an incident.

There were initially conflicting reports amid the chaos of the shooting, with L’independent claiming two men shot at the cops from inside a car.

It claims one of the Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité officers was rushed to hospital after taking a bullet in the shoulder.

The cops who were shot at – all part of the CRS 57 unit based at Carcassonne – were off duty when they were attacked around two miles from the supermarket….
