    Lyon attack: priest seriously injured in shooting at church

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-church-france

    Police are hunting a gunman who shot and seriously injured a Greek Orthodox priest in the French city of Lyon, French media have reported.

    The priest was shot at twice at around 4pm local time as he was closing the church in the city’s seventh arrondissement, a police source told FranceInfoTV. Reporters on the scene said they saw an injured man being stretchered from the building.

    The French interior ministry said in a statement that police and emergency services were at the scene and advised passersby to avoid the area.

    Wonder how far this will go before priests/churches start hiring armed guards, and then when how long till 1 of said guard shoot and kills an aggressor to really open a can of worms.

    While these are horrible events, it does show one thing. The French government is putting the hurt to Islam extremists, this is something that should have happened a long time ago ideally but better late than never. Assuming this was a terrorist attack in the same light as the others recently.

    More nations should follow France and Macron's example. Destroy the organisations and funding, round up and lock up extremists. I do hope they lock them up separately so their venom can't spread further.

    Send them back to Syria, they can go join whatever is left of their ISIS brothers and meet their end by some bullets or bombs, because that's what the terrorists deserve, and nothing less.

    Fairly ignorant statement, first it's more than just Syria or people who went to join ISIS. Muslim extremism is a beast of many heads. Secondly you want to send them to an area they can be further trained, armed and conditioned to come back to western civilization and third i do not wish the Syrian people more suffering and harm so i am opposed to sending rapists, murders and in general criminals back there to commit even more crimes in a failed state.

    Not to be facetious but isn't it showing the opposite.

    Except instead of French government it's "French people".

    Seems it was a private conflict and not terrorism related.

    Ah i see, it may appear that these events are showing that the extremists have the upper hand but i see them merely as acts out of desperation.

    I might sound cold by saying this but these few deaths are not victories for them, entire organisations are being shut down this time. It is not as before that just the people directly involved with the act are being arrested, they are going after the source of their radicalization, where do they pray, where do they get their funding from who are those people involved with the entire chain is being exposed.

    The Muslim council of France is denouncing these actions and are trying to separate themselves from the extremists and we have to call a cat a cat (dutch saying hope it makes sense?) before they weren't so eager to do expose this rift in their community, in part that they are scared the Government will come after them also. They are now working on programs to counter fundamentalism in their own ranks, so that means their places of recruitment, they places of belonging are going to be fewer and fewer.clicky

    Now this is going to first in my opinion explode further with an increase of terrorist attacks, this is a problem decade(s) in the making ever since 9/11 empowered them, paired with modern day ghetto's in Europe and thus failed immigration policies.

    But i do see this as a positive and i do see this as them being hurt as they are.

    I don't think it shows them having any kind of upper hand; but in terms of who is hurting whom, the last month seems to be "muslim extremists" are hurting "The French". While it may fast track finding and removing the extremist elements; there may have been a way to do so that didn't involve people getting decapitated or shot (this case notwithstanding if it was a private conflict) first.

    But more strength to the French if it is a price they are prepared to pay, I'm more used to people absolutely losing their minds over just one or two murders than accepting them as a necessary cost.

    I believe the element of choice was removed a long time ago when the shootings of Hebo Charli took place.

    The support for these hard measures are somewhat divided, but this comes from also Muslims feeling they are being targetted for the sins of a few. Sadly i find this has to happen, as previously just talking and expecting the community to clean up themselves did not work things got worse. However there is also support from within said community.

    Imam Hassen Chalghoumi says Muslims are the first victims of radical Islam and calls on the French government to act. "Clean up Islamist vermin, the poison of Islam. Islamism threatens us too. I’m also threatened. I said and I repeat, to our president and to all European leaders, act now! Protect our children."

    That they can't police themselves shows how incompetent and powerless their religious leaders are.

    You opened up with racism and xenophobia and bigoted hate. In response to "greek orthodox person killed by a Mediterranean person" when GREEKS, ISRAELIS, EGYPTIANS, ITALIANS, SICILIANS are all Mediterranean peoples. Let's see what a person who doesn't default to hatred say about this topic in the first response

    So the guy may be French. Spanish Sicilian Italian Egyptian Israeli Albanian. Turkish Greek Croatian.

    Acidbaron simultaneously says that leaders cause all the terror! Meanwhile, Muslims are also the number one victims People only care when a non-muslim dies to terror.

    It is a rather large community with different nationalities and forms of Islam. I find it rather normal you also have to remember that some mosques are financed by nations like SA.
