This is the new Europe. Terrorist attacks like these are not an aberration. They're the new normal.
And the new normal procedure is to bury them as crimes or just the random attacks of random madmen, randomly shouting, "Allahu Akbar".
A man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' has stabbed two women to death with a butcher's knife before being gunned down by soldiers in Marseille.
One woman was repeatedly stabbed in the stomach before were throat 'was slit', while another woman was attacked from behind outside Saint Charles train station
Eyewitnesses of this afternoon's attack told how a man 'dressed in black' launched himself at the two women, who screamed for their lives as others ran for safety.
The assailant was quickly gunned down by police and soldiers who were on patrol inside the station at the time as part of France's ongoing state of emergency.
Anti-terror officials said they were investigating 'links to a terrorist organisation' and the 'attempted killing of a public official', the identity of which is currently unknown.
A police source said the suspect was known to authorities for common law crimes and analysis of their fingerprints came up with several aliases.
Nothing to do with Islam. Denial Akbar.
The authorities, and or, the media will label him a lone wolf, but the tactics are quite familiar. Muslim terrorist attacks have repeatedly targeted trains and buses. (Along with, obviously, planes.) The use of a knife and or car (second Muslim weekend terrorist attack) are also familiar staples of the current wave of Islamic terror.
Meanwhile the new normal is soldiers patrolling French cities and shooting terrorists.
But it's not a war. It's just the new normal. Go back to shopping and welcome in refugees.
