Paris: A False Flag Operation?

To begin with, I would like to express my sincerest condolences to the families of people who were victims of various forms of terrorism, regardless of their ethnicities, religious belongings, or nationalities.

The latest atrocious assaults in Paris brings into our minds the image of the 9/11 events. We all saw in our TV screens pictures and videos of corpses shattered in the streets, of blood flowing in the streets of the city of love, of terrified people running away from death. As human beings, we were touched by these grieving occurrences. But, let us for a second put aside our emotions and sympathies and try to rationally and critically analyze these attacks, because this will ensure that those who are truly responsible for them are exposed.

As you may remember, few months ago, Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine headquartered in Paris, was violently attacked by “terrorists” who were reportedly members of the infamous terrorist group Al Qaeda in Yemen. The attack led to the death of 11 people and the injury of the same number of people. After the barbaric assault, in an expected and suspicious move, the French government enacted a law whereby it would spy on phone calls of any person suspected of being “terrorist”. The law in question would also allow the government to install hidden cameras in public places in the blink of an eye. Immediately after the announcement of this law, commentators and observed declared convincingly and publicly that, what has become to be known as “the Charlie Hebdo Shooting”, was actually a false flag operation staged by the French government. A false flag operation, as I explained formerly in my article, is an operation that is predominately carried out by  governments so as justify their military interventions in other states (The US’s invasion of Iraq in 2003, as an example), or to pass  laws that violate the rights and freedoms of the population. To avoid the wrath of the populations, governments often impute these operations to “terrorists”. Visibly, and as many reports and indicators point to, Charlie Hebdo was a false flag operation. The aim behind this state-sponsored crime has now become crystal clear. Now there remains one striking inquiry to ask; are the attacks on Paris another staged operation of the French government to justify some upcoming suspicious moves abroad? Or is the operation intended to pass another law that is similar to the one issued after the Charlie Hebdo Shooting? Or is it both ? I think it is both. The French government will, as the saying goes, hit two birds with one rock; it will have an indisputable justification for its military interference in Syria and will likely intensify its intervention in the said country, and it will also help Hollande put an end to the issue of Syrian refugees flooding into France.

The multiple assaults that stroke the capital of France, Paris, two days ago shook the world like no others. Initial investigation reports have indicated that a Syrian passport was found near the corpse of one of the “terrorists”. This reminds us of the  Charlie Hebdo massacre, when one of the Kaouchi brothers, the assumed attackers responsible for the massacre, left his identity card in the car used in the assault. This looks suspicious, because no “terrorist” would leave a clue that would definitely lead to his arrest. Similar to the Charlie Hebdo shooting, the light, in this occurrence, is specifically shed on the nationality and religious belonging of the so-called terrorists, while other questions are cunningly overshadowed by Mass Media, such as, where do refugees in France obtain automatic weapons and bombs? What do refugees have to gain from making themselves unwelcome with acts of violence committed against the host country?[1] The above-mentioned questions are outshone because once you ask and answer them, the truth will be magically revealed and all the narrations that are currently being promoted and broadcast in Mainstream media would be discredited. France has been unable to cope up with the number of Syrian refugees, who seek asylum in its soil. Perhaps this operation serves not only as means to shield the French government from criticism in case it decides, in the upcoming days, to enact a law that bans refugees from entering its territory (like the case with “Israel”), but also as a justification for the government’s decisions.

The speech that François Hollande delivered following the assaults resembled in many respects the one G.W. Bush gave a decade ago, after the sad 9/11 events. In his speech, Hollande began by declaring a state of emergency and informed his citizens that the borders are to be closed. He also noted that the various attacks on the French capital, Paris, are a war against the values of the French society and that his country would strike back. Addressing the armed forces in the Batalcan Music hall, François Hollande said, “To all those who have seen these awful things, I want to say we are going to lead a war which will be pitiless”. This is similar to what G.W. Bush stated a decade ago when he stated that his country would launch a “war against terrorism”. There remains one question to be asked, will this “pitiless war” (conceivably against Syria), as Hollande called it, be as cruel and damaging as the United States’ invasion of Iraq in 2003?

My sole hope is to see a world wherein peace and tranquility reign. I urge people to pray for all the victims of terrorist attacks, not just the assaults that target French or Westerners.
