Relax. The “Frenchman of Tunisian descent” (as Reuters described him) who drove his car at French troops — who were, ironically enough, guarding a mosque — was no terrorist. He just had a “fit of anger” according to Prosecutor Alex Perrin of Valence, the city in which the attack occurred. Perrin says it was a spontaneous thing:
He explained that when he parked his car in front of the mosque and saw the soldiers, he got the urge to ram into them because French troops are killing civilians in Syria.
Ah, sure. No problem, then. Any “Frenchman” would react that way, n’est-ce pas? What’s more, Perrin said “he doesn’t claim to be part of an Islamist movement.” Then he must not be, right? Perrin also commented:
On the face of it, this seems like an isolated act.
Of course. Pay no attention to that global jihad. It was an isolated act. A huge international jihad group has called for Muslims to murder French civilians? Never mind that!
