French government rejected Israeli technology that could've prevented terrorist attacks
A security expert believes that many lives could have been saved if not for anti-Israel bias that prevented France from using Israeli terror-tracking technology.It's said that civilizations die from suicide rather than murder. Although in this case, it's because Hollande's government threw the citizenry under the bus.
Not long after the deadly Islamic terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly in Paris in January 2015 and nearly a year before the simultaneous Islamic terror attacks in the city last November that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more, French security officials rejected an Israeli company’s offer of terrorist-tracking, according to a FoxNews.com report, citing a security expert.
“The offer of data-mining technology that would allow French authorities to ‘connect all the dots’ in the Islamist extremist community was made to the Directorate-General for Internal Security (DGSI), France’s main intelligence agency. It is used to analyze and match up fragmented intelligence reports from several national and international databases, giving counter-terrorism agents the most up-to-date information on potential terrorists available,” the news site reported.
The offer was rejected. “French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology,” a well-placed Israeli counter-terror specialist familiar with the technology and the company behind it told FoxNews.com. “The discussion just stopped.”
The articles also cite a phony scapegoating Israel:
Kamal Nawash, an American attorney and president of the Free Muslims Coalition, noted that Europe’s tough stance against Israel and hesitation in making technology purchases is an “example of the global community sending a message to Israel that its treatment of the Palestinians is unacceptable.”Oh, some "free" coalition they have there. If they perpetuate the notion that Israel is solely an aggressor, and turn their backs on the Islamist mentality driving the so-called "palestinians" then they're not favoring freedom at all.
“Israel would be wise to change its treatment of Palestinians by providing them with civil and human rights and pursuing a desegregation policy in general,” Nawash said. “Otherwise, Israel may experience the same fate as South Africa during the apartheid era with all the countries of the world boycotting Israel.”
