French media report gunman shot dead after killing 3 and taking hostages

 The French police are reported to have raided the supermarket in the southern French town of Trebes and shot dead the terrorist who killed three people and took a police officer hostage.  The gunman earlier burst into a supermarket in Trebes Friday, killing two people, injuring a dozen and taking hostages, shouting his allegiance to ISIS.  One was killed with a bullet to the head. Most of the hostages were released, leaving a policeman still held by the gunman inside the supermarket. There is no word as yet on the fate of the hostage. The terrorist first attacked a group of policemen on a training run in Carcassonne and injured one, before escaping to Trebes, 8km away, in a car he stole and killed the driver.
The gunman, a Moroccan national in his 30s who is known to French intelligence, is reported to be armed with a firearm, a knife and one or more grenades. He said he wanted to take revenge for Syria. He demanded the release of Salah Abdelslam, the only surviving member of the ISIS cell that attacked Paris in 2015 and killed 130 people, who is awaiting trial in Paris.

    Same bullshit from France 24: Lone wolf, not clear on motives, terror, yes, by really it was his petty criminal activity background that needs to be explored, no mention of the overall reason:

    It is Islam Stupid!!! It is the hundreds of thousands of these people you let in from Islamic countries who hate Christians, hate Jews and hate anyone who gets in the way of their jihadist conquest.

    Solution: First you need to admit there is an Islam problem and then you need to do whatever it takes to keep the ideology out, stop the appeasement and accommodation, stop calling people who recognize the real problem, “Islamophobes,” and make sure that your borders and strong and those who enter obey western laws and values or leave – issue only temporary visas like they do in Middle Eastern Islamic countries because they trust no one. Smart people. We need to do the same.
