There are at least 500 ISIS fighters who have served in Syria and Iraq in France, and it is likely they will start using car bomb attacks, the head of France’s intelligence services has said.
Speaking before a French Parliamentary commission looking into anti-terrorism measures, Patrick Calvar also warned that further attacks were “inevitable.”
Calvar, who is head of the Direction générale de la sécurité intérieure (General Directorate for Internal Security, or DGSI), said that the “settled” nature of the nonwhites in France was going to aid their future terrorist activities.
After saying that ISIS would switch its modus operandi in France from Bataclan theater type attacks to the use of “car bombs and explosive devices,” he said they “need the logistics [to prepare the attacks], that is to say, [they need to] settle on our territory, and acquire all components.”
“We know very well that they will proceed in this way,” he continued. “They have seen the effects caused by a massive operation,” he said, adding that the use of car bombs can allow them to “avoid sacrificing their fighters while creating maximum damage.”
The fight against Islamic terrorism now takes up more than two-thirds of the DGSI’s capacity, Calvar also said.
“In this regard, the greatest threat is represented by people who fought in, and were trained in Syria and Iraq,” he said, using as an example those refugee-terrorists who “attacked the Bataclan” theater in November 2015.
“It is these people who will lead the terrorist actions, and they number between 400 and 500,” he said.
Calvar also briefly mentioned the possibility of a “confrontation” between what he called the “ultra-right and the Muslim world,” claims which he had made to an earlier hearing as well.
Calvar said he was “concerned about the radicalization of society and the basic movement that drives it. That’s what worries me when I talk to all the European colleagues: we will have to provide resources, at one time or another, to deal with other extremist groups because the confrontation is inevitable.
“You will have a confrontation between the ultra-right and the Muslim world—not the Islamists, but the Muslim world.”
His remarks were similar to those he made on May 10 before the Committee on National Defense of the National Assembly, when he warned that there was a risk of “civil war” in France.
“Europe is in danger: rising extremism everywhere and so are we, domestically, trying to move resources to investigate the ultra-right that seeks confrontation,” he had said then.
Calvar said that “even one or two [Muslim] attacks” would cause such a reaction,” adding that “it is up to us to anticipate and block all those groups who would, at one time or another, trigger such common clashes.”
These remarks—usual fare for the far left who are always trying to overstate the alleged danger posed by what they call the “far right”—have been seized upon by the controlled media in order to generate scare-stories about “far right militants.”
Of course, all the facts show that the largest threat comes from the far left and the refugee-terrorists, not the “far right.”
This is a common scare tactic designed to try and hide the true origin of social disharmony: namely, the promotion of mass Third World immigration and the racially-divided societies which follow.
