Be aware of one thing. Before Muslim mass immigration and terrorism was exported into the West, a constant source of violence and internal terrorism was leftists. This is a fact anyone can research. Is there any wonder Muslim immigrants tend to nearly always be supportive of the left and vice-versa?
Paris gunman ‘had been living in UK’ before shooting spree

The lone gunman arrested on Wednesday night for carrying out two shootings and a carjacking in Paris had “recently returned from England”, it was reported on Thursday.
In a coup de theatre, police caught the gunman on Wednesday night in an underground carpark and named him as Abdelhakim Dekhar – convicted in 1998 for giving a gun to a leftist couple that went on a “Bonnie-and-Clyde”-style killing spree four years previously.
Hailing his arrest, Manual Valls, the interior minister said that he had “probably been living abroad” for the past few years.
A source close to the invesigation told AFP that it is thought he was living in the UK, where he is believed to have family.
During his 1998 trial, he claimed he was nowhere near the scene of the crime as he was with his sister in London, an alibi his family later denied.
His arrest followed a manhunt underway since Monday morning, when a gunman critically wounded a photographer at the offices of Liberation newspaper, before opening fire on the offices of Société Générale bank in the La Défense district and briefly taking a motorist hostage.
Mr Dekhar’s DNA matched genetic prints found on the shotgun cartridges the gunman used and a car he commandeered during Monday’s drama.
Police found “confused” notes on Mr Dekhar containing rants about the situation in Libya and Syria that “might be an attempt to explain his acts”, although they said it was far too early to say whether there was any “political motivation” behind the violence.
Mr Dekhar – known to have moved in leftist circles – also slammed the French media and capitalism in general as a “fascist plot”, according to the Paris prosecutor.
The suspect was previously sentenced to four years in jail for buying a gun used in the 1994 attacks by Florence Rey, a 19-year old political science student, and her lover Audry Maupin, who murdered 3 policemen and a taxi driver in a case that gripped France.
Mr Maupin died in the chase, while Miss Rey, a fresh-faced student from a middle-class family, was a figure of fascination, as she showed no emotion during her trial in which she maintained a stony silence.
She had claimed that Mr Dekhar, 46, was the “third man” in their killing spree.
He escaped charges of being a full-scale accomplice but was convicted of association with criminals in 1998, walking free aged 33 after the verdict as he had already served time awaiting trial.
Police seized Mr Dekhar last night at around 7pm local time in a vehicle in an underground parking lot in the western Paris suburb of Bois-Colombes, not far from where a carjacking took place on Monday.
They were unable to question him immediately as he was in a “semi-conscious state, probably after taking medication that may suggest he tried to commit suicide”.
He was reportedly seized after a witness – said to be familiar with the suspect – turned up at a local police station providing the coordinates of the gunman whose face has been on TV screens across the country.
Detectives took a DNA sample from the suspect, which later matched that found at the crime scenes.
A police source said Mr Dekhar had “shown no signs of life” since his trial and that his DNA would not be in the national database as “there were no genetic print files at the time (he was arrested)”.
Despite being caught by several CCTV cameras, Mr Dekhar managed to evade capture by changing clothes regularly. In the end, he was confounded by a witness who had been housing him for the past two weeks and recognised his lodger as the prime suspect.
The 23-year-old photography assistant shot during the gunman’s attack in Liberation’s reception area on Monday was in a slightly improved condition yesterday and had been taken out of an induced coma, but remained “intensely monitored” by doctors.
While Mr Dekhar’s motives are still not known, he remains an elusive character. In his trial, he claimed to be working as an Algerian spy tasked with infiltrating leftist groups to unearth possible links with Islamist terrorists. Algeria denied this. Court psychologists dubbed him an individual with “mythomaniac tendencies”.
“He’s a strange, enigmatic man,” Emmanuelle Hauser-Phalizon, his former lawyer, told AFP.
“I never really who he was.”
