It is unfortunately not unheard of for certain journalists to exhibit sympathies for militant organizations or terrorists. It is more unusual for journalists to become terrorists themselves. We now have such a case.

On June 6, 2017, a hammer-wielding Algerian student attacked police officers outside the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Farid Ikken, 40, took one of the officers to the ground and wounded him before other policemen shot two bullets at him. Ikken was carrying kitchen knives in addition to a hammer.

Anti-terrorist police who later raided Ikken’s flat found a video of him pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS). The French Interior Minister confirmed that Ikken shouted “This is for Syria!” as he struck the police officer.[1] According to the news agency AFP, a spokesperson for the French government said the man had never shown any signs of radicalization. The attack is therefore being treated as an “ isolated incident.”[2]

There seems to be many such “isolated incidents” happening during Ramadan, from Egypt to England.

The Swedish independent news website Fria Tider soon exposed that the suspected terrorist from Paris had previously worked as a journalist in Sweden, including for the national publicly funded radio broadcaster Radio Sweden (Sveriges Radio).[3] Radio Sweden eventually confirmed that he had worked for them in 2010.[4] Ikken was a freelance journalist employed for different media in Sweden for several years.

In 2009, Farid Ikken won an EU award for journalism against “discrimination.”[5] He is thus an award-winning journalist and a terrorist. The article for which he received this award dealt with asylum seekers who are not entitled to free medical care but who still receive it, courtesy of the local taxpayers. Ikken was pleased to see that such important topics as discrimination and diversity received positive attention from the EU.[6]

Ikken had studied at Stockholm University and is thought to have married a Swedish woman during his time there. In 2017, he was enrolled as a doctoral student specializing in communication at Metz University in eastern France. Arnaud Mercier, his PhD supervisor, stated that he was completely stupefied by the attack as Mr. Ikken “believed very much in journalistic ideals.” Professor Mercier claims that he didn’t have a beard and he didn’t wear special clothes. The Swedish Security Service (Säpo) had no previous record of Ikken.[7] A well-known French media and journalism researcher has described him as “meek as a lamb.”

According to most reports, Ikken does not seem to have shown external signs of so-called radicalization before this attack. The mass media and the authorities stress this fact, seemingly in an attempt to reassure people. Have they considered the possibility that this actually makes matters worse, not better?

The attack in front of the Notre Dame appears to be a case of what the author Daniel Pipes has dubbed “Sudden Jihad Syndrome.”[8] This term applies to Muslims who, without having previously shown clear signs of Jihadism, suddenly attack, anyway. If Farid Ikken was indeed a so-called “moderate Muslim,” his example illustrates that even so-called moderate Muslims may physically attack us.

The simple truth is that some allegedly moderate Muslims lie. The concepts of taqiyya and kitman allow Muslims to lie and falsify their intentions towards non-Muslims. This strategy is widely employed by Islamic terrorists.

Another possibility is that a moderate Muslim can suddenly turn militant within a very short time. This abrupt change may be triggered by political or personal experiences, even trivial ones.

As a science fiction fan, I have previously compared Islam to the film The Matrix from 1999. In the movie, anyone connected to the Matrix can at any time become agents of the system and kill those who are perceived as being a threat to the system. This is a good analogy for Islam. Anyone who identifies with Islam can suddenly become agents of Islam and kill those who are perceived as being a threat to the system.

In reality, this means that we cannot rely on so-called moderate Muslims. They may suddenly and without warning turn against us and attack us. The only ones we can trust to a certain extent are ex-Muslims, individuals who have completely abandoned and publicly distanced themselves from Islam.

    Ja helt utrolig nå er svenske journalister blitt terrorister ? man kan vel si at mulighetene for å redde Sverige er minimale nå.

      Tipper det var frustrasjon over at en artikkel ble om å utdanne migranter til sjåførter ble refundert

  • Chingachgook Jensen

    Vore journalister trænger i vidt omfang til en omskoling i bedste Pol Pot-stil.

      Tak, det var hurtigt.

    Gadd ikke å lese artikkelen siden den var på engelsk og både jeg og fjordman er norske.
    Å boikotte sin egen kulturarv og språk er feil vei å gå selv om man vil spre budskapet sitt internasjonalt.

    Men at en journalist ble terrorist er ikke overraskende da vi vet at de fleste journalister har en politisk agenda.

    LAD HAMMER OG SEGL LYSE
    Troels Trier

    Det borgerlige samfund efterlader dig fremmedgjort og forvirret. Komunismen kan gi dig en samlet opfattelse af din omverden og en vej til at ændre din situation. (Læs Karl Marx og Friedrich Engels: Det kommunistiske manifest.)

    Lad hammer og segl lyse – hammer og segl finder vej,
    lad hammer og segl lyse – hammer og segl finder vej.
    Du kan la’ hammer og segl lyse – hammer og segl skinner på dig.

    Du er røvrendt og forvirret – du har intet sted at stå,
    Du er røvrendt og forvirret – du har intet sted at stå.
    Lad hammer og segl lyse – det kan gi’ dig en vej at gå.

    Op med kommunismen – ned med alle de ting som står i vejen,
    Op med kommunismen – ned med alle de ting som står i vejen.
    Lad hammer og segl lyse – hammer og segl viser vejen

      Det kan være en farlig branche, kommunismen. Jeg kendte ikke denne historie

      How British universities spread misery around the world

      Most of our British university teachers imbue their overseas students with disastrous ideas and remain comfortably here, uninvolved in the misery they have sown overseas. One heroic-cum-tragic exception was Malcolm Caldwell, a communist lecturer at the School of Oriental and African Studies who was such a fan of Pol Pot and his murderous regime that he went over to see it in person. He had a private interview with Pol Pot himself and was murdered later the same day.

        Den kendte jeg heller ikke.
        Jeg synes sammenfaldet med hammeren i teksten, jeg af en eller anden årsag har på lager, var oplagt- selvom den sidst hammersvingende måske ikke nogensinde var kommunist…
