Never bring a knife to a gunfight!
Once again, the inbred, violent Middle Easterner shows that he’s incapable of living at peace with his neighbors.
A machete-wielding knifeman who tried to enter the Louvre has been shot by a soldier.
A French soldier opened fire on a man armed with two knives who was trying to enter the Louvre museum in central Paris, a police source said.
The Louvre attacker wielded a machete and shouted ‘Allahu akhbar’, according to French police.
Another police source said the man had been trying to get into the museum’s underground shop with a suitcase.
The soldier fired five shots and seriously injured the attacker, including in the stomach.
He was carrying two backpacks, but neither had explosives say police.
Soldiers patrolling as part of France’s on-going State of Emergency stopped the man getting into the building shortly after 9am.
‘He was carrying a suitcase and was refused access,’ said a police source at the scene.
The man immediately withdrew a knife, and attacked.
‘It was at this moment that a soldier used his weapon to disable the men, who was wounded. The area has been evacuated.’
Tourists inside the Louvre have been evacuated into locked halls and advised to sit down while officers investigate if there is a continued threat.
One soldier suffered a minor scalp injury.
The French interior ministry says anti-terrorism prosecutors are investigating an attack outside the Paris landmark, but there are no details about the identity of the attacker.
Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet says a second person also was arrested but it is unclear whether that person was linked to the attack.
Brandet says about 1,000 people were inside the actual museum and were held inside in safe areas near the Louvre.
Paris remains on a high state of terrorist alert following murderous attacks by Islamic State operatives in 2015.
On November 13th 2015, 130 people were murdered in a single night of violence which included attacks on the Stade de France, the Bataclan concert venue and cafés and restaurants.
U.S. president Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven Middle East countries is a good first step to ensuring public safety in the U.S. But will Marine Le Pen, if she ascends to a leadership role in France, have the courage to do the same and more?
