    A knife-wielding jihadi beheaded a woman and murdered two others at a church this morning in southern France.

    “A man wielding a knife at a church in the French city of Nice killed three people, slitting the throat of at least one, and injured several others before being apprehended by police,” French news agency AFP tweeted, citing officials.

    The  “Allahu Akbar”-shouting attacker decapitated a 70-year-old woman and stabbed the church sexton to death. Another woman, who was stabbed inside the church, managed to seek refuge in a nearby bar where she later died from her wounds, initial media reports said.

    The city’s Mayor Christian Estrosi described the heinous incident as an “Islamo-fascist attack.” The attacker kept chanting “Allahu Akbar” after his arrest and left “no doubt… about the meaning of his action,” the mayor added. The man was shot by the police at the scene and is currently in custody.

    TV channel France24 reported the deadly attack:

    A knife-wielding attacker shouting “Allahu Akbar” beheaded a woman and killed two other people at a church in the southern French city of Nice on Thursday, according to police officials. The city’s mayor described the incident as an act of terrorism.

    Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi said on Twitter the knife attack had happened at the city’s Notre Dame church and that police had detained the attacker.

    The attacker had shouted, “Allahu Akbar”, or God is greatest even after he had been detained, Estrosi said.

    A police source said three people were confirmed to have died, including a woman who was decapitated in the attack. One of the people killed inside the church was believed to be the church warden, Estrosi said.

    The French interior ministry said on Twitter that security and rescue forces were at the site and urged residents to avoid the area.

    The assailant was arrested after the attack and taken to a nearby hospital after sustaining injuries, a police offic[i] al said. He was believed to be acting alone, the official said.

    The city of Nice has witnessed several Islamic terror attacks in recent years. A Tunisian-Muslim immigrant drove a cargo truck into a large crowd celebrating the 2016 Bastille Day, a French national holiday, killing 86 people, including 10 children.

    Islamic attacks on Christian places of worship in France have surged. In July 2016, two terrorists belonging to the Islamic State beheaded an 84-year-old Catholic priest, Jacques Hamel, in front of the altar during a mass in Rouen, located in northern France.

    The French Catholic Church responded to the attack saying that “Christians must not become symbols to be slaughtered.”

    The attack took place amid an atmosphere of growing hatred and incitement against France in the Muslim world. Demonstrators in Muslim countries have been staging angry protests over the recent clampdown on Islamist organizations by French authorities following a teacher’s beheading. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused French President Emmanuel Macron of “Islamophobia” for comments following the beheading in Paris. Erdogan was joined in condemnation by Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei, Pakistan’s Prime Minister, and other Muslim leaders.

    Terrorist attacks follow Islamist anger. In the French city of Avignon, police took out an Islamic terrorist on Thursday after he tried to attack passers-by while shouting “Allahu Akbar.” Another attacker was arrested on the same day for stabbing a guard at the French consulate in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia.

    Islamist attackers may or may not have any direct co-assailants, but they NEVER act alone…

    Funny how the things done by “Islamo-facists” are always justified by regular old Islamic teachings.

    There is no “radical” or “moderate” Islam. There is only Islam, and it is at war with the West, whether the West wants it or not.

    Any reason why there isn’t armed security at churches? These churchgoers are sitting ducks.

    Knife? I think not, you can’t decapitate somebody with a knife, not without taking significant time to do so. Plenty of time for him to get rushed by the crowd and taken down, unless these idiots just stood around and watched him hack away. This guy must have had a sword.

      Oh, you can decapitate someone with a knife.

      “Boy Says Father Beheaded Brother Because Of Devil
      Jul 24, 1995

      Eddie Pells


      ESTANCIA, N.M. – As trucks whizzed past on Interstate 40, 13-year-old Larry Smith watched his father cut off his older brother’s head, terrified he would be next…”

      I remembered this story for a number of reasons. One is that he decapitated his 14 y.o. son with not much of a knife (he had two knives; I doubt he used both).

      “…They found a 4-inch knife and a pocketknife, both covered with blood, but no sturdier knife.”

      If I can butcher a deer or a hog with nothing more than a four inch drop point blade then you can decapitate a 14 y.o. boy with one. Or a 70 y.o. woman.

      Of course dollars to donuts we’re going to find this guy used a 6 or 8 inch chef’s knife. Still eminently concealable, cheap, and available.

        Sure you can decapitate somebody with a 4-inch knife, but it’s going to take a good long time to do. It isn’t a one, or even two, swing thing to accomplish. Now maybe when the French authorities say “knife” maybe they’re actually referring to something like a butcher’s cleaver. That would have the heft to chop things with alacrity. Even a chef’s knife is going to take some work to decapitate somebody. You can cut their carotid instantly but fully severing the spine and throat, which decapitation implies, requires work. Work which takes time. Time that the congregation didn’t use to interrupt or attack him.

          “…but fully severing the spine and throat, which decapitation implies, requires work.”

          Not really. It’s not difficult to cut through a deer’s esophagus or trachea. To sever the head you cut connective tissue between vertebrae; you’re not cutting through bone. It really doesn’t take much time, just a few swift cuts.

          I guarantee you that a deer during the rut (mating season) has a much tougher neck than a 70 y.o. woman.

      BTW, if the knife is sharp it doesn’t have to be big, and it won’t take long to do the job.

      It probably takes an outdoorsman or a professional chef to appreciate just what a huge difference a really sharp edge makes. Or an AQ/IS murderer.

      Not to be macabre, but one of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad’s interrogators asked him if he found it difficult to behead Daniel Pearl. The CIA interrogator, I forget if it was Jose Rodriguez or Dr. James Mitchell, was thinking about emotionally. Did KSM have to choke down any vestige feelings of humanity when confronted with actually beheading a fellow human being.

      The interrogator needn’t have been concerned; the thought never occurred to KSM. Not when he did it, not when he was asked later about it. He said, “No, it wasn’t hard. My knives were really sharp.”

      Just because I as an outdoorsman know how much it means to keep my knives, axes, and broadheads (for my hunting arrows) appropriately sharp please don’t put me in the same category as KSM or “the Beatles,” the IS executioners with British accents. That’s like confusing surgeons with hit men simply because both use knives, or pharmacists with drug dealers, or jewelers with diamond thieves.

        Infidels are the worst of created beings per the Quran, so KSM’s response isn’t surprising. One doesn’t empathize with beings having the same status as offal and feces. If your goal is to create a society of psychopaths Islam is an excellent tool.

          We’re lower than cockroaches, according to Allah. Pigs and dogs may be unclean but they don’t reject Allah, his messenger, and the “religion of truth.”

          Meanwhile, Muslims are the best of peoples.

          Surah 3:110 “You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to Allah – and rebellious against Allah’s Command).”

          Can somebody point to the passage in the Bible that spells out my xtofascist supremacism as clearly as the Quran spells out Muslim supremacy?
