The Louvre in Paris is one of the most famous art museums in the world, the home of priceless works of art and culture. It’s an historic landmark as well as a huge sanctuary that dates back to the 12th century for some of the finest creative efforts of mankind.It’s impossible to see everything in a single day. Nearly 35,000 exhibits from prehistory to the 21st century are exhibited over nearly two acres. And today the Louvre was targeted by a Muslim terrorist.
Incroyable. This is what it has come to.
29-year-old Abdallah EH (full name not released yet) is an Egyptian, who arrived in France on a flight from Dubai on January 26 and reportedly applied for refugee status. He came to the Louvre with a backpack that contained paint bombs, according to the Paris Chief of Police. When security guards asked him to open his backpack, his pulled out a machete, started yelling the old war cry ‘ Allahu Akbar!’ and attacked one guard who sustained a head wound. He then was shot several times by the other guards, critically wounding him. There’s a report that he had an accomplice, who fled and is still being sought by the police.
The terrified museum patrons who had come for a day of enjoying the marvels the Louvre has to offer were put in lock down for several hours and then evacuated.
The paint bombs pretty much tell us the story. Abdallah and his partner intended to vandalize and slash as many of the priceless and irreplaceable works of art as they could and kill as many infidels as possible in the process. Islam, as some of you may know, forbids any artwork depicting the human form and has a dim view of artwork in general.What better way to tell the kuffars (nonbelievers) that France belongs to Islam now then to attack the Louvre?
