The Weekly Standard says
that France is extending its state of emergency as more jihadism struck on the week of Bastille Day:
This week was supposed to be the beginning of a slow return to normalcy. After voting to extend its state of emergency three times, the French Parliament had opted to let the extreme actions, dubbed Operation Sentinel, lapse at the conclusion of the Euro 2016 soccer tournament and the Tour de France.
Instead, a terrorist attack in Nice on Thursday left more than 84 dead and scores injured after Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Tunisian man, drove a large truck through crowds gathered to watch the Bastille Day fireworks. Lahouaiej Bouhlel was eventually shot dead by police.
In the aftermath of the attack, French lawmakers rushed to renew the emergency measures yet again. Speaking to the nation early Friday morning, President François Hollande said that he and the defense and interior ministers had decided to present parliament with a bill to "maintain Operation Sentinel at a high level," which enables the government to "mobilize 10,000 soldiers, in addition to gendarmes and police."
Additionally, Hollande said the government had decided to draw upon operational reserves, including army veterans and former members of the gendarmerie "to come and help relieve the pressure on the police and gendarmes." These forces will be deployed wherever needed, particularly for border patrol.
Members of parliament supported the proposal and spoke of potentially making the measures permanent.
"We are faced with a permanent war. We cannot continue to ask every three months if the [state of emergency] continues. So I think we must be placed in a permanent state of emergency," said Olivier Falorni, a conservative member of parliament, who also spoke of the need for "radical actions."
That's definitely what they need. They have to start raiding Muslim enclaves and revoke citizenship for many of the monsters now dwelling their society. And above all, to exile them. Exile is something that anybody who values safety for sane society is going to have to start contemplating if they truly want to defend their country.
