    A female police officer has been seriously injured after a man attacked her with a knife at a police station in Toulouse, France, local media reported. The suspect reportedly tried to grab the officer’s weapon and when the attempt failed, he took a knife and stabbed her in the throat. The police officer was taken to hospital with multiple injuries, but as yet there is no further information on her condition. The attack took place in the Rempart Saint-Etienne prefecture of Toulouse. The assailant, 31, had a psychiatric disorder and attacked the officer because she “represented France,” La Depeche du...

    What is possibly one of the art world's greatest finds came about because some French homeowners wanted to fix a leaky roof. The 400-year-old work, which was found by accident in 2014 in an attic of a house in Toulouse, is thought to have been painted by Italian master Caravaggio, according to Old Masters expert Eric Turquin, who has been studying it for the past two years. The amazing find was discovered in a sealed-off part of the attic space, which had to be accessed in order to repair a leak. Named "Judith Beheading Holofernes," the painting represents the biblical...

    Intelligence officials are comparing a newly discovered secret Islamic State document to Hitler's "Mein Kampf," as it blames Israel for the rise of the Islamic State and crowns U.S. President Barack Obama as the "Mule of the Jews." Found in Pakistan's remote tribal region by American Media Institute (AMI), the 32-page Urdu language document promotes an "end of the world" battle as a final solution. It argues that the Islamic leader should be recognized as the sole ruler of the world's 1 billion Muslims, under a religious empire called a "caliphate." ...Retired U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency Director Gen.

    A Jewish school in Paris was evacuated on Thursday — three years to the day after the brutal massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse, French news website JSS News reported. The evacuation follows disturbing instances of increased antisemitic violence throughout France and Europe. Police searched the classrooms and common areas at the Ecole Alliance Gustave Leven in Paris using bomb-sniffing dogs. Though the report did not indicate whether the police found any explosives, sources did tell JSS News that it was a fairly serious threat. The evacuation at the French school occurred on the third anniversary of the horrific...

    Killer becomes a 'victim' Op-ed: False notion of 'Muslim victimhood' raises its head in wake of Toulouse murders Politically correct European elites and many Muslims have jointly created the perception that all Muslims are victims of the West. Consistent flawed reasoning and false arguments have made this possible. On the basis of the fake "victimhood" platforms created over the years, whitewashers of Toulouse murderer Mohamed Merah are constructing new false images. It is difficult to deny that the three French soldiers, a Jewish teacher and three children whom he killed are victims. Once having paid tribute to them, whitewashers began...

    The 27-year-old man photographed in 2009 seemed to represent hope springing from Paris’s desperate suburbs. Part of a work-insertion program, he was about to meet then-French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who was trying to combat high youth unemployment.... The man was Amedy Coulibaly, who was killed Friday after seizing hostages in a Jewish supermarket in Paris, an attack he claimed was in support of the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq & Al-Sham. A close associate of Said and Chérif Kouachi, the two brothers who attacked the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo Wednesday, Coulibaly is a symbol of the huge challenges lying ahead...

    Amid a public debate in France over the allegedly anti-Semitic “quenelle” gesture, French media have reproduced a photo of a man performing it outside the Toulouse school where four Jews were murdered last year. The photo, which was published Monday on the website of the France 3 broadcaster, shows a man wearing a shirt featuring a portrait of Yasser Arafat in front of the Ohr Torah school. The man is holding his left palm outstretched over his right shoulder – in the gesture, known as quenelle, which was invented by the anti-Semitic comedian Dieudonne M’balla M’balla. Jewish groups say that...

    Once again the "lone wolf attack"is a big fat digusting media lie. There is no such thing. Lone-wolf jihad is an oxymoron. All jihadists are part of the ummah (worlwide Muslim community). All jihadists wage holy war in the cause of Islam. All jihadists use the same playbook (the Quran). All jihadists cite the same chapter and verse. An attack on Jewish children is one of the most pious of Islamic ritual slaughters. Of course the devout Muslim who opened fire on a children's school didn't act alone. There were many Muslims working with Mohameld Merah. There are millions like...

    A report published by Tel Aviv University's Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry, in cooperation with the European Jewish Congress, reports that incidents of anti-Semitic violence rose an alarming 30% in 2012. Associated Press: The report linked the March 2012 shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse, where an extremist Muslim gunman killed four, to a series of copycat attacks, particularly in France, where physical assaults on Jews almost doubled. Researchers who presented the report at the university on Sunday said they had also found a direct correlation between the strengthening of extreme right-wing parties in some...

    The father of Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah told FRANCE 24 that he wants to sue the French state for failing to capture his son alive. Benanel Merah told the French television on Tuesday that police besieging his son’s Toulouse flat were "hasty" and they “could have used sleep-inducing gas and taken him like a baby.” Merah hired Algiers-based lawyer Zahia Mokhtari, according to the BBC. Mokhtari told French media that Merah considered his son murdered by security services. Mohamed Merah, a 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian origin, killed three Jewish children and a rabbi and three Muslim soldiers in southwestern France...

    France is to ban radical Muslim preachers from entering the country as part of a crackdown after shootings by an al Qaeda-inspired gunman in Toulouse, President Nicolas Sarkozy said today.  The President said he would block the entry of some imams invited to an Islamic conference next month, organised by the Union of French Islamic Organisations (UOIF).  The UOIF, one of three Muslim federations in France, is regarded as close to Egypt's Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.         'I have clearly indicated that there certain people who have been invited to this congress who are not welcome on French...

    Mehdi Nedder knew the suspected Islamic terrorist, Mohamed Merah, only “slightly,” says the Associated Press. But what he knows about him now has him slightly more worried. Merah, 21, killed seven people in Toulouse, France, including three children, who just happened to be Jewish, and three French paras, who just happened to be soldiers, before he was finally killed in a shootout with police. He bragged he had brought France to its knees according to various newswire accounts.  "This person doesn't represent me," said Nedder. "What worries me is what society will say tomorrow in the bakery shops, at the...

French Interior Minister Claude Gueant said "[The police] had never seen anything like this. In the end Merah jumped out of a window continuing to shoot. He was found dead on the ground. We were able to remove him and the dangers he posed to the people of Toulouse".
