Is Paris Safe For Our High School Students?

Has radical Muslim terrorism made Paris too dangerous? That question was debated by the school board in Conway, New Hampshire a few weeks ago. The local Kennett High School French club went to Paris during an April terrorist attack. Two jihadis opened fire with assault rifles, killing a policeman and a tourist, and wounding another policeman.
“Kennett students were heading down the famed Champs-Elysee toward the Arc de Triomphe (pictured) when shots rang out,” reported the Conway Daily Sun. “Kennett High School senior Will Synnott planned on having an exciting April vacation during a student trip to France, but he didn't expect to be running for his life from a gun-toting terrorist.”
Mr. Synnott is a senior and, in spite of his exposure to terrorist murders, wants the student trips to continue. The Sun said he also wants “to discourage people from becoming bigoted against Muslims because of last Thursday's attack.” In that, he sounds like the European media or a European Union official. After every attack in every European country, they warn against “Islamophobia,” as if that were a bigger problem than jihadis raping and murdering Europeans nearly every day somewhere on the continent.
France has been in a national state of emergency for two-and-a-half years since January, 2015 when Muslim terrorists murdered twelve people for publishing pictures of Muhammed. Months later Muslim terrorists murdered 128 people in a series of Paris attacks with guns and bombs, and wounded many more. In Nice last summer, a Muslim terrorist drove a truck into a crowd killing eighty-six. There have been rapes, stabbings, and shootings too numerous to mention before the latest attack on the Champs-Elysee. There are “no-go zones” in Paris and across the country into which even the police don’t dare to go lest Muslim residents riot. In recent presidential debates, the liberal Macron said to the conservative Le Pen, “You are giving into their [Muslims’] trap of civil war.” As I write this on Tuesday, The UK Telegraph is reporting: “Paris' Gare du Nord train station was evacuated last night as armed police reportedly searched for three 'dangerous' terror suspects.”
Such is the new Europe under multiculturalism — the word to which liberals ascribe their notion that all cultures are equal. It became an official EU policy when that multinational body came into being. Conservative European leaders like Holland’s Geert Wilders and France’s Marine Le Pen who dare criticize passages in the Koran advocating the killing of Jews? They are prosecuted, but they continue to garner support nonetheless. In spite of European mainstream media’s constant drumbeat for multiculturalism, in spite of all the wonderful falafel restaurants that have opened across Europe, a growing percentage of ordinary Europeans are observing that millions of Muslim immigrants are not assimilating.
A critical mass of Muslim immigrants in Europe have no intention of becoming French, German, British, Dutch, or Swedish. What they want is to establish Sharia Law in their adopted countries. They want to make Europe Muslim. After centuries of trying by military invasion, they’ve changed tactics. Now they’re doing it through hijrah, or jihad by migration. In the late 20th and 21st centuries, this is coincident with a drastic decline in native European birthrates. The French, Germans, British, Swedish, Italians, Greeks, Spanish, etc. are simply not reproducing. Muslim immigrants are, however, and profusely. Demography is destiny and native Europe has essentially stopped reproducing, while Muslim immigrants multiply rapidly. Muslims are 7.5% of France’s population now. What will France and the rest of Europe be like in the next generation? The one after that?
Sexual assaults against European women skyrocket across Europe while governments forbid identification of perpetrators as Muslim immigrants. Media cooperates in the coverup. When for years young Muslims set hundreds of cars on fire in France during almost any given weekend, they’re called, simply, “youths,” not Muslims. Ordinary French are not fooled, but they fear being called racist or being prosecuted for speaking up. There’s no First Amendment in the EU Constitution. It is still in force in the USA though — except on college campuses.
Those pesky French "youths"at it again

Unlimited immigration was the biggest reason for the Brexit vote in the UK. British citizens wanted out of the EU and that sentiment is spreading across Europe. On Sunday, French voters elected a left-center president who promises to stimulate the moribund French economy. In spite of France’s never-ending state of emergency, he defeated the conservative candidate who promised to restrict Muslim immigration. Economics has trumped demographics for now. Meanwhile, France is being transformed.
If the purpose of sending American high school students to France is to provide them a taste of French culture as the “Religion of Peace” changes it, then yes, send them. But first, teach them to duck and cover.

France still has a lower violent crime rate than the USA, and if a student WAS harmed there it would statistically be much more likely to be at the hands of a non-Muslim. These facts make your column seem really dopey.

France is officially a dhimmi country thanks not just to violent and stealth Islamic jihad but to the Leftists who enabled them. It started with the Euro-Arab Dialogue in the early 70's and now, with the election of Macron, they just put the final nail in their coffin. We're next unless we wake up politically.

I've read dozens of books on Islam, the hijra, refugee resettlement and so on but you don't have to. Pick up a copy of Leo Hohmann's "Stealth Invasion" and join the growing movement against the cult of death also known by the Pope as the "religion of peace".

Columns like this are exactly the reaction the perpetrators of these atrocities want – they rely on us feeling bombarded by this news and they want us to feel at risk. They want us to be afraid. It’s called terrorism after all. Understanding the limitations of their ability to hurt us helps, in some small way, to frustrate their aim. They do not want you to think rationally and realize that as there are 66 million people in France, then at the current level of activity, the odds of being killed in a terrorist attack in a given year are less than two ten-thousandths of one per cent. That’s 27 times lower than their odds of dying in a car accident. In other words, there is no need for columns like this over-stating the power of the terrorists/boogeymen.

The terrorists are fighting a battle for your mind, don’t give it to them.

Oh, you're so right. Much better to ignore what the Koran says about killing infidels or "Kufar." Just don't look when Muslims in Europe say they want to institute Sharia Law. Ignore all those cars burning up every weekend. If Muslims massacre dozens, just put flowers and Teddy bears at the site and move on. Nothing to see here.

You seem to have no problem ignoring what the Bible says about killing infidels.

I'm not sure what Sharia law has to do with your column, but it is true that less than 30% want it.


Burning cars do not refute a word of my previous post. You are still falling into their hands by magnifying their actions, and making things sound drastically more dangerous than they really are. THe odds of falling to the terrorists are not changed by anything you say.

I bet French parents are scared to send their children to the U.S., with the rise in hate crimes since Trump. Then there is all the Christian terrorism:

Wisconsin Sikh Temple massacre, Aug. 5, 2012

The murder of Dr. George Tiller, May 31, 2009

Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church shooting, July 27, 2008

The murder of Dr. John Britton, July 29, 1994

The Centennial Olympic Park bombing, July 27, 1996

The murder of Barnett Slepian by James Charles Kopp, Oct. 23, 1998

Planned Parenthood bombing, Brookline, Massachusetts, 1994

Suicide attack on IRS building in Austin, Texas, Feb. 18, 2010

The problem isn't Muslim, its radical religion in general. The number of Christian terrorist attacks in the U.S. outnumber all others by a wide margin. The problem is that if someone burst into a crowded area in the U.S. and screams "This is for Jesus," just before they kill a bunch of people, the attack is labeled as an attack by an mentally ill person, not a religious motivated attack. If the same thing happens with a Muslim, it is a terrorist attack.

I could understand Tom's hysteria if a school field trip was scheduled for Syria, but trying to scare others from France, a country safer than the US, is playing into the hands of the terrorists. This is exactly what they want. By hyping it up you are doing the work of the terrorists.

In Paris, the annual murder rate in previous years has been 2.6 per hundred thousand people. The terrorist attacks this more than doubled the average murder rate, but Even so this makes Paris a little less dangerous than New York City, where the murder rate has been as high as seven per hundred thousand in recent years.

Is there a chance of getting killed in a visit to Paris? Sure, you might get hit by a car, which seems to be the most likely way, but yes, there are also many things with astronomical odds that could also kill you, animal attacks and terrorism included.

Funny how there is no outrage from Tom about a bigger threat to our citizens - right-wing militants who, since 2002, have killed more people in the United States than jihadis have.


I guess Tom sees things differently when the terrorists are white, US christians.

"Pardon our Muslims"? Something only a bigot would say. Yes, categorizing the vast majority of a group because of a small percentage is practically the very definition of bigoted.

WHat is your evidence about rape skyrocketing across Europe? The old debunked Breitbart crap about Sweden? You think all criminals should be identified by their religion? So it should always be pointed out when criminals and rapists are christians? But back to the "rape culture" of Muslims.

It should be emphasized that there are many similarities between the current hatred against Muslims and the way Jews today, and historically, have been slandered and hated.

The Nazis spread the same lies about Jews in the 30s, as Breitbart spreads about Muslims today. It was claimed that there was such a thing as “Jewish Rape Culture.” Especially the magazine Der Sturmer was famous for spreading these kinds of lies.

In the 1930s it was claimed that Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe were overrepresented in the criminal statistics of Germany. That might be true since they were socioeconomically poorer that native German Jews. In the same way as Breitbart does today, the nazis claimed that this was “evidence” of “Jewish criminality” and “Jewish rape culture.”


That is the kind of company Tom is in with his BS opionions.

There was a very good article in the Daily Sun (Ask a Muslim Anything) last week that addressed this issue.

The Sun asked Azzi about the April trip to Paris during which a group of Kennett High School students were in the general vicinity of a terrorist who opened fire on police. No students were hurt.

"I wouldn't sponsor a trip to Chechnya or Yemen ... but I think the likelihood of violence against them (in Paris) is no greater than it is probably in any other major city in most of the Western world, including the United States," said Azzi.

"To start pulling back because of those kinds of incidents is to give a great victory to terrorists."

Azzi stressed throughout his presentation that Islam is not a monolith and varies greatly from culture to culture. For instance, in some countries, the rights of women are limited, but in other countries there is more equality. In fact, there were female heads of state in some Islamic countries like the prime ministers of Turkey and Bangladesh.

"It's not all as bleak and grim" as women in burkas and veils and being segregated from men, said Azzi.

He further explained that Islamic texts are interpreted in different ways , in the same way that Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal, and the late Antonin Scalia, a conservative, would disagree on the U.S. Constitution.

Azzi said the honor killings, female genital mutilations and the murder of gays are crimes that cannot be tolerated in any culture. He also clarified that female mutilation predates Islam in Africa and that honor killings are not encouraged by Islamic Scripture.
