France has mobilized 7,000 troops after a teacher was stabbed to death in an Islamist terror attack
· Oct 14, 2023 ·

Well I think it's safe to say things are very tense in western Europe right now:

France on Saturday said it will deploy 7,000 soldiers after declaring a top-level alert following the fatal stabbing of a teacher by a Chechen-origin man, who also severely wounded three others at a school. …

Police arrested the suspected attacker, Mohammed Moguchkov, who had cried the Arabic phrase "Allahu Akbar!" (God is greatest), according to the preliminary elements of the investigation.

The attack took place in the town of Arras, which is "home to large Jewish and Muslim populations," just in case you wanted to know.

Macron had already noted on Thursday that hundreds of the country's religious and cultural institutions "were receiving stepped-up police protection" after Hamas's attack on Israel and a call to violence from Hamas' leader.

The country's education minister also ordered stepped-up security measures at schools across the country "without delay."

Riots and protests have gripped the nation, with the large Muslim immigrant population taking to the streets to support Palestine after Hamas gunned down hundreds of Israeli civilians.

France has banned these pro-Palestine "demonstrations" amid a rise in antisemitic attacks in the country, but it is uncertain if the crowds will listen to the order.
