The cost of Islam: Terror attacks cost Paris region €750m in lost tourism, officials say

Terror attacks have scared off thousands of tourists from Paris and its top attractions, leading to a €750m drop in the region’s revenues, officials have said.

Strikes and floods have also taken their toll, overshadowing the boost from the Euro 2016 football tournament and leaving the tourism industry in need of massive new investment and a rescue package, they added.

“It’s time to realise that the tourism sector is going through an industrial disaster,” the head of the Paris region tourist board, Frédéric Valletoux, said in a statement on Tuesday.

    this is one of the most famous cities in the world. a terrible shame.
    when the mooslims get down on their knees in a power showing,
    they need to be shuffled away like the rats they are ..

    Not a mention of the obvious: that the decline in tourism is directly linked to the influx of cultural enrichers to France. But halting or reducing immigration from such lovely locales as Somalia, Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan? Too extreme to even contemplate, apparently. However, surrendering their nation to invaders from Islamic backwaters – that’s something that works for them it would seem.

    Yes.Ban islam; they cost too much in the West…the commie multi culti diversity is not worth it…they bring nothing and suck welfare they do not deserve.

    Did I just hear someone say, “Serves them right?”

    And a small museum in Normandy has to close down and sell its inventory because tourism has dried up.

    Those scum are trying to create the new dark ages when people in the Middle ages couldn’t venture far due to the razzias and the piracy.

    That alone should be grounds to wipe off the jihadists from the face of the earth

    Now I understand why the Federal bureaucrats who are accused in today’s big Liberal Govt spending scandal spent what they spent….

    They have a viable excuse – restaurants raised their prices to make up for a loss in revenue due to a decline in tourism.

    Canadians are now paying $50.00 per muslim for the security cost to watch known islamists and potential jihadists .
    But when you add up the number of Canadians with job to pay taxes , it’s a huge burden per person as is the CBC cost of $1.1 billion a year when many don’t even watch the CBC.

    While liberals love to talk about how Rich Canada is with our safe society and social benefits…… they fail to mention that Combined debts for all levels of Gov with is just over $3,000,000,000,000.00 .
