Allahu Akbar. It’s everywhere you don’t want to be.
A woman who allegedly shouted “Allahu akbar” attacked two people with a box cutter at a supermarket in southern France on Sunday before she was arrested, local media reported.
The incident took place around 10:30 a.m. at the supermarket Leclerc in the Mediterranean city of La Seyne-sur-Mer, located near Marseilles.
Witnesses told Var-matin the young woman attacked a customer and employee.
The woman was dressed in black and wearing a veil at the time, shouting “Allahu akbar” – “Allah is greater” in Arabic.
Europe 1 radio quoted Toulon prosecutor Bernard Marchals as saying that a customer in the store in La Seyne-sur-Mer was injured in the chest in the Sunday morning attack and hospitalized.
A woman at the market’s cash register was injured too, but less seriously.
Paper or plastic. Cash of credit. Jihad or normal customer.
But the French authorities are predictably trying to play the psychiatric card.
A woman, dressed in black and a regular client of the store, assaulted a supermarket client at around 10:20 am on Sunday morning, injuring her under the collarbone and thigh. The 60-year-old man has been hospitalized and is currently out of danger, said prosecutor Bernard Marchal, confirming a Nice-Morning report .
In attempting to disarm her, a 28-year-old cashier was slightly injured on the brow bone. Finally two other employees succeed.
“It is apparently the isolated fact of a person with proven psychiatric disorders,” commented Bernard Marchal, “however it does not exclude the possibility of radicalization.”
The prosecutor refers to the state of “extreme excitement” of the author of the facts at the time of the interpellation, which reads : “ Allahu akbar , you are disbelievers” but also “I am the darling of God”
You are infidels. That is the usual excuse for Islamic violence.
If I had to predict what happens next,
1. The police will find that she was browsing ISIS sites
2. The media will play up some sort of real or imagined history of mental illness. Her family will claim that they don’t understand what happened and will suggest that the authorities framed her.
3. A copycat attack will take place within a month by another Muslim woman
