French intelligence fears Islamist ‘missile strike on airliner’ or 9/11-style attack

French security forces are bracing for the eventuality of civil unrest and fear there could be a missile strike on a passenger airliner or a September 11-style attack, according to sources close to French intelligence.

“Airlines have been warned of a possible attack on a plane with an anti-tank missile,” a source told The Telegraph. “But pilots are unsure how to take evasive action.”

  • Well, France, your work is cut out for you.

    • Is it ever. This sort of attack is only a matter of time.

      • I doubt even that will put some sense in the French.

          It can if:

          1 it’s Visible. If it gets on social media and goes viral.

          2 It’s Bloody. Not just a death count statistic but say a torn body thrown from the wreckage. a dead child; that sort of thing.

          3 It’s Celebrated. If isis/terrorist ‘X’ stands over the proverbial corpse of the incident and laughs for all to see.

          Only then MAYBE will people be aroused from there self imposed stupor and rage against the narrative.

          If it doesn’t nothing but total war will.

          • Charlie Hebdo should have been that wake-up call.

            Alas, the desired effect was not reached.

          • Jabberwokk

            Not big enough. In the end no one knew charlie hebdo in the west. But watching a plane be taken in out at an international airport for all to see? maybe. That’s something more people can relate to not just the satirically inclined.

          • The September 11th attacks did not have the response the Pearl Harbour attacks did.

            We have lost our will to fight.

        It’s not just France that’s in the crosshairs. Thanks to government pretty much every western country is.

  • Maggat

    ““But pilots are unsure how to take evasive action.”” Be evasive and avoid France.

      Exactly! I just emailed this article to my husband and said I am never going to Europe again.

      • David Murrell

        Good. I male it a point never to vacation in any place with a large Muslim popjlaion. Everybody should do likewise.

    The buggers attempted this on an El Al jet leaving Kenya a few years ago. The plane had some sort of system installed (don’t know the correct terminology) and was able to detect the missile and take evasion action, thank G-d. A lesson to learn from the Israelis once again.

    Libya: 20,000 Surface-to-Air Missiles Missing

      This is a shot from the past, when the US was frantically searching for both Soviet made SAMs and Stingers left over from the Afghan war in the early 2000s.

      The Soviet ones were bad enough for their persistent tracking of aircraft when launched, but the old Stingers were said to be even harder to shake.

      I understand that the newer gen Stingers are even more tenacious in their tracking, but hopefully, none of those have fallen into enemy hands…

      • mauser 98

        old ones are short range ,only good for take off and landing.. but good enough
        Hill & Barry Benghazi event is where many were from (from what i have read)

        One problem is the thermal battery; generally, their life in storage is about 10 years under proper conditions. Excessive heat can be detrimental. And, as an example, Qaddafi’s ammo storage arrangements were not of the best.

    France’s best defence at this point might be to hope for more American tourists to save their asses.

      They are a nation of faggots themselves.

    Do I see a Ruger Mini 14 rifle in the hands of French Special Forces personnel???

    • UCSPanther

      That’s a Mousqueton AMD, a French license built version of the Mini 14/AC 556. They are standard issue for French law enforcement.

      Interestingly enough, the stock has an M1 carbine style oiler cutout.

  • Gary

    They fear a 9/11 type attack?????????

    Wake up you braid dead a-holes , you should be assuring the public you’re ready for WHEN the muslim savages go jihad to slaughter thousands as a favour to allah.

    islam either helps to create a mental illness to KILL KILL KILL , or it attracts
    those that are mentally ill to start with and gives them purpose to KILL KILL KILL.

    • It won’t be 9/11 but all-out warfare.

  • The jihadists are getting bolder and more aggressive every day, and we may soon witness all out battles in Europe. But this of course has nothing to do with Islam, and Muslims are really very nice peace-loving people.

      They are starting in Germany.

      France has been in a kind of protracted civil war for a number of years now. Police interventions in hostile neighborhoods resemble military operations more than mere policing. Now they’re talking about the reappropriation of national territory. France is riddled with no-go zones. The state has “swiss cheese” sovereignty over its territory.

  • BillyHW

    The solution is to get rid of all the muslims.

    • Justin St.Denis

      “…get rid of all muslims…”? How? Deportations? Many are citizens. A cull? That takes guts, and we’re talking France here! And Germany is saddled with its own history of trying to cull a religious minority.

      European states do not have the balls to do what it will take to survive.

      European people – nations of them – need to rise up and bring down their own governments and install NATIONALIST governments, which means getting rid of the EU as well.

      That is a lot of politicians to kill.

      Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

      • Blacksmith

        THat is the correct solution I believe.

  • Allan

    Yeah well, keep importing Islamists. Way to go France, and all other European and Western countries. Just keep importing.
