Hours ago, the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility as a police chief and his wife were stabbed to death in Paris, France.
The Islamic terrorist screamed “Allahu Akhbar” and used a knife to kill them both, while their 3-year-old child was saved just as police entered the home.
This is what “Islamic terrorism” looks like Obama. It is evil:
A knife-wielding attacker stabbed a senior police officer to death Monday evening outside his home in a distant suburb of Paris, officials said. The attacker and a female companion of the police commander were later found dead after police commandos stormed the home and rescued the couple’s three-year-old son.
French officials said anti-terrorism prosecutors were investigating the attack. ISIS’ Amaq news agency cited an unnamed “source” as saying an ISIS fighter carried out the attack, but the extremist jihadist group has not officially claimed responsibility.
The off-duty police commander was attacked outside his home in Magnanville, about 35 miles west of Paris, interior minister spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet told reporters at the scene. The attacker then retreated indoors and elite police commandos laid siege to the residence, eventually storming it after a roughly three-hour standoff. Brandet said the woman, the commander’s companion and a fellow police worker, was found dead, as was the attacker. The police couple’s son was unharmed.
Although officials said the attacker was killed by police when they stormed the residence, it was unclear how the woman was killed.
“The toll is a heavy one,” Brandet told reporters, his voice heavy with emotion. “This commander, this police officer was killed by the individual … (and) we discovered the body of a woman. The assailant, the criminal was killed. Thankfully, a little boy was saved. He was in the house. He’s safe and sound. He was saved by police officers.”
The Paris prosecutor’s office said early Tuesday that anti-terrorism investigators had been brought in to the case given the target, the method behind the attack, and what the attacker said to police during the ensuing standoff.

Now, this child will grow up without parents due to this deadly attack.
Perhaps Obama should hold a press conference, and blame this attack on the knife?
Terrorism is possible everywhere, and it’s time to confront ISIS directly. This is a tragedy.
Let us pray for the family of this ISIS attack in Paris, France. RIP
