When a teacher was assassinated on the street, the Paris police assume Islamist terrorism. She has now arrested nine suspects. For years France has been rocked by such attacks. This hits the heart of the republic: education. After the alleged terrorist murder of a teacher in a Paris suburb, there is great horror in France. According to initial findings, he was beheaded. The police arrested several people from around the alleged perpetrator, as confirmed by the anti-terrorist public prosecutor’s office. A total of nine people are in police custody. According to reports, relatives of the alleged perpetrator and other people are involved.
According to the public prosecutor’s office, the alleged perpetrator was born in Moscow in 2002 and is of Russian and Chechen origin. He has had refugee status in France since the spring and has not yet been noticed by the secret service, said public prosecutor Jean-François Ricard. Accordingly, he was shot by the police shortly after the fact. The man was armed with a knife and an airsoft pistol – the police also found a blood-smeared knife about 30 centimeters long near the crime scene. The victim, a 47-year-old history teacher, had numerous wounds on the upper body and head and was found beheaded, Ricard said. He was just on the way home from school. The perpetrator ambushed him.
Teacher beheaded on the street Macron speaks of “Islamist terrorist attack”
The prosecutor said the attack was preceded by threats against the teacher and the school. At the beginning of October, the teacher had shown corresponding drawings in class as part of the debate on freedom of expression and the publication of Mohammed cartoons in the satirical newspaper “Charlie Hebdo”. A father then published posts on social networks, complained to the school management and mobilized against the teacher. The alleged perpetrator posted a photo of the dead victim on the network after the fact. “I executed one of your hellhounds who dared to belittle Mohammed,” the prosecutor quoted from the tweet. The investigators assume a terrorist-motivated attack. French President Emmanuel Macron had spoken of an Islamist act of terrorism. The gruesome act occurred on Friday afternoon in the Paris suburb of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine. There, the history teacher is said to have been attacked by the attacker on the street. President Emmanuel Macron had left for the crime scene that evening and stood very clearly behind the teachers. It is no coincidence that a terrorist murdered a teacher of all people because he wanted to attack the country’s values, said the head of state. From Elysée circles it was said that a national commemoration was planned. The date has not yet been set.
France expert on assassination attempt “attack on teachers shakes the republic”
“First of all, my first feeling is fear, but I think that’s exactly what these terrorists are looking for,” said Minister Assistant to the Interior Ministry, Marlène Schiappa, on Franceinfo. “Schools educate the free spirit, enlightened citizens – and that is exactly what the Islamists, who live on stupidity, ignorance, indoctrination and hatred, cannot tolerate.” In the fight against radical Islamism, the head of state had recently focused primarily on education as a central element. Distance learning for children who stay at home should be strictly limited from the coming summer, Macron announced in early October. There should only be exceptions for health reasons. Lessons are compulsory from the age of three.

Only a few weeks ago there was a knife attack in front of the former editorial building of the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in Paris. Two people were injured – here, too, the perpetrator gave published Mohammed caricatures as the motive for the crime. There was a devastating murder attack on the editorial team of “Charlie Hebdo” in January 2015, in which the most important illustrators of the paper were killed. The trial against alleged helpers of the Islamist terror series is currently ongoing in Paris in January 2015, in which a total of 17 people were killed.
