Driver Ploughs into Crowd in France’s Second ‘Allahu Akbar’ Attack

Pauline Talagrand et al., Yahoo! News, December 21, 2014

A driver shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) ploughed into pedestrians in eastern France Sunday, injuring 11 of them, just a day after a man yelling the same words was killed in an attack on police officers.

Two of the people injured in the car attack in the city of Dijon were in a serious condition, a police source said, adding that the driver had been arrested.

“The man, born in 1974, is apparently unbalanced and had been in a psychiatric hospital,” a source close to the investigation told AFP, adding that “for now his motives are still unclear”.

The man had targeted groups of passersby at five different locations in the city on Sunday evening in a rampage that lasted around half an hour, the police source said.

“Nine people were lightly injured and two others seriously but their lives do not appear to be in danger,” the source added.

Witnesses told police that the driver shouted “Allahu Akbar” and “that he was acting for the children of Palestine”, a source close to the investigation said.


France is still reeling from a suspected radical Islamic attack on Saturday that saw a French convert to Islam shot dead after attacking police officers with a knife while also reportedly crying “Allahu Akbar” in the central town of Joue-les-Tours.


The assailant, Burundi-born French national, Bertrand Nzohabonayo seriously injured two officers–slashing one in the face–and hurting another.


Nzohabonayo had previously committed petty offences but was not on a domestic intelligence watch-list although his brother is known for his radical views and once pondered going to Syria, the source said.


Authorities in France believe around 1,200 nationals or residents are involved in one way or another in jihadist networks in Iraq and Syria.

    for now his motives are still unclear

    Yep, clear as crystal.

    • rebelcelt

      Why is it unclear? he was yelling it the whole time?

  • superlloyd

    More atrocities committed in the name of the barbaric, Islamic death cult. Propagandised as the religion of “peace” by useful, liberal idiots and Islamic commentators. Why don’t we believe you?

    • Cid Campeador

      You said it all! It’s always been a cult; never a Religion.

  • Samuel_Morton

    According to the #iwillridewithyou mindset, it is more important to preen your moral superiority bona-fides and denounce any potential backlash against foreigners, than it is to mourn violence committed against your own brethren.

    How much violence will it take before whites collectively grow a spine and risk being called a racist for acknowledging the painfully obvious fact that non-European immigrants are a net loss?

    How many rampages have to happen before whites will openly say “even if the majority of Arabs are not violent, our country would be better off without them.”

    • Cid Campeador

      Let’s not forget to include homegrown, congenitally psychotic Afros as a “net loss”.

  • Kenner

    It happened again in Nantes Monday night. Authorities say it was ‘an isolated incident’ unrelated to the attack in Dijon, and was not ‘religiously motivated’.
    That could be true, but they haven’t released the name of the driver as yet.

  • Jaggers

    Ah yes, another “mentally ill” person. Nothing to do with race whatsoever.

    • libertarian1234

      Yes, he’s a nut case for sure.

      And he’s not alone. There are about a billion of them altogether. While they all don’t kill people, every last one of them is unquestionably nutty.

      • Sick of it

        The friendly ones pass young girls around as they rape them…

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      Yep, these people aren’t really mentally ill in the sense that Westerners mean when they use the term. They’re usually not having hallucinations or fundamental breaks with reality (as schizophrenia patients often do). They fully know and understand what they are doing.

      But the left can’t comprehend that their precious diversity often doesn’t live by the same moral standards and codes of conduct that they do. Their universalism is blinding them to the fact that to Muslims, killing people in the name of Allah seems like a perfectly rational and reasonable thing to do, and it is reasonable by the standards of their own community.

      This is why we should be preventing their community from entering our communities at all costs.

  • libertarian1234

    I wonder if he thought he was doing Allah’s will.

    Of all the religions of the world the one that is less able to offer any credibility is Islam.

    It’s tenets are so screwy it’s on a par with some of the kookiest cults in this country.

    And the mindless rabidity exhibited by its followers mark them as similar to the Jonestown Cult that obediently drank poisoned Kool-Aid without question, because they were told to.

    Who but adherents of a kooky cult or sect too dumb to know better would believe anything so incredible that they would be given 20 virgins in an after life for blowing up themselves and innocent people?

    Oh no, he’s not a religious fanatic, he’s just “unbalanced”. Let us understand him. In the mean time you can just go die.

  • “The man, born in 1974, is apparently unbalanced and had been in a

    Ever notice when the motive is as clear as a Ramadan bell, they tell us it’s “unclear?” You’re even hearing that said about Brooklyn, that his “motive is still unclear.”

    “The man, born in 1974, is Muslim.” There, I fixed it.

    And also…get ready for the articles worrying about backlash, Marine Le Pen, and praising I’ll Ride With You SJWs.

    France is a wonderful country. The mother of our civilization. The next time that the Americans have to go over there and save the French for the consequences of their incompetence and stupidity, we should keep large sections of the place for ourselves.

    Some of the outlining suburbs of Paris are so full of hostile muslim immigrants that the police don’t even respond to calls into them anymore. If the French police have abandoned parts of the outskirts of Paris, then, as far as I’m concerned, they’re open for the taking of anyone who can drive the Mussies out of them. We should get ten thousand Americans who want to live in Paris, just get ourselves there, ‘deal’ with the Muslims occupying the place, and declare ourselves “les nouvelles Parisiennes”, the new French. We’ll keep our USA citizenship (and our guns) while also declaring allegiance to Western civilization and values. Then we’ll rebuild the place to what it was 100 years ago before all the brutal cement ugly housing projects appeared and got filled with Muslims who hate France and Western civilization. As for what happens to the Muslims there now, ‘ask no questions, tell no lies’.

    Of course we could do the same thing to Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, Camden NJ, or St. Louis. But then after all that work, spirit, and blood, we’d end up with just Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and Camden NJ. Hardly worth the trouble. But Paris, well that’s different.

      France is overdue for another visit by the German Army.

      • Sloppo

        Germany has some housekeeping of their own to do first.

        • Julius Caesar

          Let us no forget Jared Taylor’s “Towards a World Brotherhood of Europeans” speech. We should not be speaking about each other as being better than another, but rather we should be looking to help one another to reach the heights of civilization that Europeans ones possessed.

          • Sloppo

            I do not look down on Germans at all. I absolutely believe that they’re some of the finest people out there. On the other hand, Germany has a big muslim population which needs to be repatriated and I can’t expect them to put handling our problems ahead of their own.

    If their “God” truly is the greatest, it would never command its children to use lethal violence on random people… That is not a true “God”. This is nothing more than a clear “eat it you evil white French people”

    France is also suffering from vigorous and endless political correctness forcing itself to submit to non-white third world immigrants and their influence, the sharia law and the the islam belief.

    Miss France 2012 and 2013 were beautiful brunette white girls, but after they chose a white woman to be Miss France 2013, all muslims and politically correct people reprimanded the Miss France committee, and in 2014, they gave in and a woman who is the product of a white French dad and an African mother from Benin was chosen to be Miss France 2014. Miss France 2014 does not even look like she has any white blood in her in my eyes…


    Attached to this post is a photo of Miss France 2012, Delphine Wespiser from Alsace, and Miss France 2014, whose name I could not care less. As soon as I finish uploading the photo of Miss France 2014 I will delete that photo from my computer.

    Can you have workplace violence on a Sunday?

      According to the BBC, 55% of Pakistani-Britons are married to a first cousin, and as a corollary to that produce « just under a third » of all children in the UK with
      genetic illnesses, despite being only 3% of the total births.

      Today, 70% of all Pakistanis are inbred and in Turkey the amount is between
      25-30% (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 “More stillbirths among immigrants“).

      A rough estimate reveals that close to half of everybody living in the Arab world is inbred. A large percentage of the parents that are blood related come from families where intermarriage has been a tradition for generations.

      The Times of India affirmed that “this is thought to be linked to the probability that a British Pakistani family is at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders.”

      Medical evidence shows that one of the negative consequences of inbreeding is a 100% increase in the risk of stillbirths.

      One study comparing Norwegians and Pakistanis shows the risk that the child
      dies during labour increases by 50%. The risk of death due to autosomal
      recessive disorders — e.g., cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy — is 18 times higher.

      Risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher. Mental health is also at risk: the probability of depression is higher in communities where consanguine marriages are also high.

      The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of mental and physical retardation and schizophrenic illness.

      And then there are the findings on intelligence. Research shows that if one’s parents are cousins, intelligence goes down 10-16 IQ points. The risk of having an IQ lower than 70 (criterion for being “retarded”) increases 400% among children from cousin marriages.

      An academic paper published in the Indian National Science Academy found
      that “the onset of various social profiles like visual fixation, social smile, sound seizures, oral expression and hand-grasping are significantly delayed among the new-born inbred babies.”

      Another study found that Indian Muslim schoolboys whose parents were first
      cousins tested significantly lower than boys whose parents were unrelated in a non-verbal test on intelligence.

      It is estimated that one third of all handicapped people in Copenhagen have a foreign background and 64% of school children in Denmark with Arabic parents are illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system.”

      Massive inbreeding among Muslims has been going on since their prophet allowed first-cousin marriages more than 50 generations (1,400 years) ago. For
      many Muslims, therefore, intermarriage is regarded as being part of their religion.

      In many Muslim communities, it is a source of social status to marry one’s daughter or son to his or her cousin. Intermarriage also ensures that wealth is kept within the family.

      Islam’s strict authoritarianism plays a large role as well: keeping daughters
      and sons close gives families more power to control and decide their choices and lifestyles.

      themuslimtimes org/2013/01/science-and-technology/biology/cousin-marriage

      Another reason why not to marry a Muslim.
      I don’t know about France, as France doesn’t keep race records, but the chance are it’s quite similar in France.

      • Sloppo

        Indeed. Fourteen centuries of inbreeding to follow the example of Muhammad has created a lot of people who are too “unbalanced” to be held accountable for their actions in western civilization.

  • MBlanc46

    I have some French ancestry and France is one of my favorite places in the world, but there’s no denying that the French have brought this on themselves. I can only hope that Marine LePen and her ilk can save France before it’s too late.

  • KenelmDigby

    ‘A French convert to Islam’, yup, ‘Bernard Nzohabonayo’, a nice good Gallic name.

    • Cid Campeador

      Another fancy named Mau Mau. The hard nosed French of the past would have dragged him out of the car and dismantled him.

  • Raydonn

    The Comrade News Network ‘reported’ that he was yelling ‘god is great in Arabic’…….I guess that was the softest way they could word it short of leaving out that little tidbit altogether….

    If his problems are in his head France needs to dust off the cure for head problems. La Guillotine.

    I don’t care WHAT traitors to Christendom say, All- ah is NOT GOD.
    Never has been, never will be. And your reportage saying so, is prejudicial to Christians everywhere.
