What France is like weeks after their own 9-11

The Times of Israel/AFP tells what Paris and France are like now, in the weeks after the tragedy when 130 people were murdered by ISIS supporters within the country:
Bags are searched during mundane grocery shopping, heavily armed police patrol the streets and bomb disposal teams are frequently called to examine “suspect packages” — four weeks on, the jihadist attacks have left Paris a changed city.

This is France at “war” against the Islamic State jihadist group, as a visibly shaken President Francois Hollande said soon after cafe terraces and a concert hall became scenes of carnage on November 13.

The fading photographs tucked in among the shrines of candles and flowers show just how many youthful faces were among the 130 victims that lost their lives while enjoying a night out.

Outside the Bataclan music venue on Friday, workmen scooped up piles of wilted flowers, as even the deep mourning over the attacks must eventually end.

The tourist trade is recovering in the world’s most visited city, but the attacks have left their mark on its residents in a multitude of ways.

“I really pay attention now to people who get on the train with bags,” said Pierre Breard, 24, who works for a start-up in Paris.

“I look at people’s stomachs” for signs they are wearing explosive vests, admitted Aurelie Martin, a 24-year-old primary school teacher. On the night of the attacks, she was forced to file out of the Stade de France with her hands in the air as police frantically searched for more suicide bombers after three blew themselves up outside while France played Germany in a football match.
It's clear that France will not be the same again for a long time.

This article, however, has the gall to take what the father of one of the terrorists said at face value:
When investigators revealed the identity of the third Bataclan attacker on Wednesday, the father of 23-year-old Foued Mohamed-Aggad from Strasbourg did not mince his words.

“I would have killed him myself beforehand,” his father, Said Mohamed-Aggad, told AFP.
I'm not fooled by what the man says. If he'd really wanted his son to lead an honest, non-violent life, he would never have raised him on Islam or allowed any imams to do the raising for him. The AFP flubbed on that one, which is just apologia and refusal to recognize what's wrong with Islamofascism.
