As suspect in French train attack is interrogated, questions mount on Europe’s security

PARIS — French authorities on Sunday continued to interrogate a suspect whose attack on a high-speed train was foiled by vacationing American service members, amid mounting questions about security lapses on Europe’s vital rail system.

A Moroccan man identified by security officials as Ayoub El-Khazzani was being questioned Sunday by French counterterrorism investigators on the outskirts of Paris. He was tackled, disarmed and hogtied on the train by the Americans and a British man Friday evening after starting to shoot aboard the packed train, which was hurtling from Amsterdam to Paris.

    Europe needs to impose the death penalty , waste of time locking those terrorists and realising them back to society.

    • They have largely lost the will to survive, most lack the courage necessary to decisively put Islam in its place.

        People needs to be united , form a new government that will work for the safety of everybody and set new laws to kick them out ,deport them , it doesn’t matter if they are citizens or not .

          What about Harper?

    I see he’s got the garden gnome beard going.

  • Let’s assume for a moment that the hapless idiot really DID intend to rob the passengers.

    That’s better how?

      Sharia law says we get to cut off his hands.
      I wonder if he would be “up” for that kind of action?
      I wouldn’t be surprised if his lawyer then cam back with: “it’s OK to steal from the kafirs”.

      • He did admit to robbery….

      • Alain

        Actually in Islam it is OK to steal from the kafirs. Stealing is only wrong if from other Muslims.

      In what world do you need a dozen 30 round magazines for a train robbery in an unarmed nation? He only needed that many if he was planning on killing people.

      • Yes, I know that.

        Do the Europeans know that?

        I’m assuming not.

  • Millie_Woods

    He was ‘hogtied’. There’s the money shot.

    • Maggat

      Hogtied, would that be halal? or harem?

      • Millie_Woods

        Not sure, but somewhere a copy editor is going in for sensitivity training.

    I’m waiting for the Yanks to be arrested for assault.

    If this happened in Canada, the Airman, Reservist and Brit would be charged with assault and battery plus hate crimes, (because they assumed he’s a muzzy terrorist, never mind that they were correct) — and, because they took it from him, possession of a prohibited automatic weapon, with no trigger lock, not stored separately from the ammunition. This stinking muzzy would then be granted an audience with his regal majesty “The Shiny Pony” to ascertain The Root Cause of his behaviour, whereupon they would join hands, and after a rousing chorus of “Kumbaya” would go to Friday Mosque together.

    The Refugees are just 5th Column entries into Western Society. Control them or they will control the EU.

    The beard and coffee-filter hat are akin the the “look” of F.A.S.

    Europe’s train networks are a very tempting soft targets for these assholes. It’ll soon be impossible for people to go about their normal routine.
