Al-Qaeda claims responsibilty for Paris attack; French upset with Israel and USA

Front cover of January 14, 2015 edition of Charlie Hebdo


The Yemeni branch of the terrorist group Al-Qaeda is claiming responsibility for last week’s murders in France:

January 14, 2015

Yemen’s al-Qaida branch officially claimed responsibility for last week’s attack on the Paris offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, saying it was an “act of vengeance” for the Prophet Muhammad.

Charlie Hebdo regularly publishes anti-religious pieces and has several times published illustrations featuring the Prophet, an act many Muslims consider sacrilegious.

On Wednesday, the magazine put out its first edition since last week’s attack, with a cover that featured a cartoon illustration of a weeping Prophet Muhammad on the cover, along with the line “All is Forgiven.” The issue has been selling out across France.

In a video posted online Wednesday, a man identified as Nasr al-Ansi, a top leader of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, said his group planned and financed the Charlie Hebdo attack that killed 12 people.

“As for the blessed Battle of Paris, we, the Organization of al-Qaida al Jihad in the Arabian Peninsula, claim responsibility for this operation as vengeance for the Messenger of God,” Ansi said in the recording. …


French police killed the Charlie Hebdo attackers, Said and Cherif Kouachi, on Friday, the same day another Islamic militant, Amedy Coulibaly, killed four Jewish victims at the kosher supermarket in eastern Paris before being killed by police. Coulibaly had also killed a French policewoman one day earlier.

The al-Qaida in Yemen leader said Coulibaly was not operating as a part of the group and that his actions were a coincidence.

Meanwhile, French comedian Dieudonne was arrested Wednesday for defending terrorism, after posting a statement on social media that seemed to support last week’s attackers.

Dieudonne has won notoriety with his outspokenness in the past, most notably for popularizing an arm gesture deemed by some to be anti-Semitic because it resembles the Nazi salute.

ISIS released a video Wednesday praising last week’s Paris terror attacks and urging more violence in Europe and the United States. The latest propaganda video features interviews with three French-speaking jihadists belonging to ISIS, according to Flashpoint Partners, a service that monitors jihadist groups. The men threaten to extend ISIS’s caliphate, or territory, into Europe, and urge the killing of more police officers and “infidels” in the streets.

Religiously connected groups should oppose what happened and encourage peace, not more violence. Calling the cowardly attack ‘the blessed Battle of Paris’ again shows the depravity many terrorists hold to.

While the translated front cover of Charlie Hebdo states ‘All is forgiven,’ the reality is that French have not forgiven the terrorists, the terrorists are not repentant, and there remain other problems associated with all of this.

Some of the French now have new issues with Israel and the USA–which they are not inclined to forgive.  In a biblical context, this is not unexpected.

Notice something that the late evangelist Dibar Apartian wrote over five decades ago:

But contrary to what you may think, it will NOT consist only of Gentile nations. It will INCLUDE a group of ISRAELITISH nations. “Come out of her , my people,” says God in Revelation 18:4. “My people” means Israelites in Bible prophecy. Yes, once again, Joseph’ s own brothers will sell him to the Gentiles!

Once again REUBEN (the first-born of Jacob who anciently conspired with his brothers, will “act” in terms of saving him, but end · up by compromising with his brothers to send him into CAPTIVITY.

Ever since the early days of American history, the French have been on our side. There exists a brotherly link among all the ISRAELITISH nations. Nevertheless, by uniting politically with the “beast,” some of the modern Israelites will be instrumental in conquering the United States and Great Britain.

So says YOUR Bible! (Apartian D. De Gaulle and the Next World War. Plain Truth, September 1964, p. 11)

While there are many reasons why France would be involved in betraying the USA, UK, and Israel, some matters associated with the aftermath of the terrorist attacks may be factors as well.  A reader sent me the following last night:

Hollande Furious After Netanyahu Participates In Paris March, Disobeying French President’s Request

Jan 12, 2015   excerpts…

French President Francois Hollande conveyed a message to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend asking him not to come to Paris to take part in the march against terror on Sunday…

After the French government began to send invitations to world leaders to participate in the rally against terror, Hollande’s national security adviser, Jacques Audibert, contacted his Israeli counterpart, Yossi Cohen, and said that Hollande would prefer that Netanyahu not attend, the source said…

Audibert explained that Hollande wanted the event to focus on demonstrating solidarity with France, and to avoid anything liable to divert attention to other controversial issues, like Jewish-Muslim relations or the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Audibert said that Hollande hoped that Netanyahu would understand the difficulties his arrival might pose and would announce that he would not be attending.

According to the source, when Cohen informed Audibert that Netanyahu would be attending the event after all, Audibert angrily told Cohen that the prime minister’s conduct would have an adverse effect on ties between the two countries as long as Hollande was president of France and Netanyahu was prime minister of Israel.

Audibert made it clear that in light of Netanyahu’s intention to arrive, an invitation would also be extended to Abbas. And indeed, several hours after Abbas announced that he would not be traveling to Paris, his office issued a statement stating that he would in fact be at the march.

Hollande’s anger at Netanyahu was evident during the ceremony held Sunday evening following the march at the Grand Synagogue in Paris, an event attended by hundreds of members of the local Jewish community.

Hollande sat through most of the ceremony, but when Netanyahu’s turn at the podium arrived, the French president got up from his seat and made an early exit.

Obama’s Paris snub wasn’t an oversight

Jan 12, 2015   excerpt…

The uproar over whether President Obama or another top administration official should have attended the massive unity rally in Paris has obscured an important point about the White House’s reaction to the latest terror attacks in Europe. The administration no-shows were not a failure of optics, or a diplomatic misstep, but were instead the logical result of the president’s years-long effort to downgrade the threat of terrorism and move on to other things…

Even as the march wound its way through Paris, the White House sent out yet another sign of its unseriousness. On Sunday morning, the press office announced the president will host a “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism” on Feb. 18. The plan is to bring together “social service providers, including education administrators, mental health professionals, and religious leaders, with law enforcement agencies to address violent extremism as part of the broader mandate of community safety and crime prevention.”

As the world watched images of black-clad, AK-47-wielding terrorists killing Parisians, Obama proposed to meet the threat with social service providers.

So when the president chose not to attend the Paris march, nor to send the Vice President or Secretary of State, the problem wasn’t a tin-ear sense of public relations. It was Obama’s actual attitude toward the terror threat facing not only Europe but the United States.

So the Israeli Prime Minister attended an event that the French President did not want him to attend and the USA failed to send a high level representative to the same event, despite being invited.  There already is a lot of antisemitism in France (see France and Israel mourn terrorist deaths, while many Jews fear the rise of antisemitism in France) and a distrust of the USA. Even The Boston Globe felt the USA did not handle this correctly:

Obama let France down

January 13, 2015

America’s failure to march with world leaders against terrorism marked an embarrassing diplomatic misstep. As leaders from some 40 countries joined more than 1 million demonstrators Sunday in a solemn and extraordinary progression along the boulevards of Paris, the highest-ranking United States official on the scene was America’s ambassador to France, Jane D. Hartley — hardly a familiar face on the world stage.

And that simply wasn’t stature enough, not for a display of solidarity against violence by Islamic radicals that turned into what French officials described as the most massive rally in the history of America’s oldest ally. The numbers of marchers in other cities around the world — from Boston to Sydney — surpassed 3 million, according to news reports. Seventeen people died in the attack last week on the satirical French newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a related hostage-taking at a kosher grocery, also in Paris.

The bewilderment and international criticism were justified. In a belated concession, the Obama administration on Monday said that it should have dispatched an official of greater prominence to join France’s Francois Hollande, Germany’s Angela Merkel, Britain’s David Cameron, and dozens of other leaders. “I think it’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,’’ White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters.

No one questions that the United States is deeply committed to battling terrorism. The tone of many analysts who noticed the absence of a top-rank American leader at the solemn Paris march was more rueful than angry. “I wish our American president had gone to Paris to stand with our European allies,’’ tweeted James Stavridis, dean of Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a former US Navy admiral.

The fallout from the terrorist events may have deepened the rift between the USA and France.

As Dibar Apartian wrote, the French will betray some of the descendants of Israel in the end times.  And while the events of the past week or two are not the most important in this context, they will likely be remembered by the French when they do at least acquiesce to the destruction of the USA and its British-descended allies.

As many of you are aware, my wife and I returned from a trip to France a couple of weeks and put together two sermons related to France: specifically its origins and prophecies related to France. These are The ‘Lost Tribe’ of Reuben and France and Prophecy.  They were able to be available around the time of the incidents in Paris as they were videoed just prior them.

Knowledge of the origin of the French and Bible prophecy helps us to understand what will end up happening in France and elsewhere.
