Report: French Officials Blame Le Pen For Foiled ‘ISIS Terror Attack’

Earlier today, French police reportedly arrested two men on suspicion of plotting a terror attack ahead of the first round of the country’s election.

Breaking911, citing news wire service Reuters, states that an ISIS flag, along with propaganda, were subsequently found at one of the suspects’ homes.

According to the BBC, the suspects – aged 23 and 29 – are “said to have been [radicalized] in prison.”

It is not clear what the men were planning on targeting but officials say they were planning to strike “in the very next days.”

The BBC goes on to cite French intelligence officials that suggest Islamic terrorists are attempting to force a victory for right-wing presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.

“The line of reasoning goes like this,” reads the article. “If there is a lethal attack, then people are more likely to vote for the far-right – and that is what the jihadists want, because a victory for Marine Le Pen could tip the country into chaos.”

Le Pen, meanwhile, has historically blamed the French government for its failure to address Islamic terror.

The BBC reports that Le Pen’s adviser, Florian Philippot told French media “our democracy itself, our voting operation and electoral campaigns are under threat.”

French citizens will head to the polls for the first round of the country’s election in five days.

According to this BBC article even before today’s attack, Le Pen vowed to halt all immigration to France.

The article further states that Le Pen is predicted to make it to the second round of the French election next month. The race between her and the center-left Emmanuel Macron is reportedly very close.

    Nonsense. Terrorists know who their friends are, and it’s not Le Pen.

    Le Pen, Brexit and Trump happened BECAUSE of these terrorists, and these Globalist ass mongrels. Think about it, if it wasn’t for the leftist agenda aiding and abeding these terrorists and their ilk, making it easier for them to commit their atrocities all the while dumbing down our society and making straight white christians (espeically men) the scapegoat for everything, none of this would be happening. If you left wing assholes would have dealt with these terrorists accordingly, instead of helping them or blaming someone else for what they did, if you weren’t so blatant in your attempts to destroy the working middle class and have the world be only the poor drones and the rich political elite, if you didn’t show such callous hatred for everything western society has built and what it was founded on, NONE OF THIS would have been happening. But you’ve forced the hand of the people who are sick and tired of it and have realized that their politicians are not going to do anything to help them so they are going to take you clowns out and replace you with individuals they feel at least care about these problems. You have created your own demons because you were so hell bent on destroying our society and now the people have come to take you assholes out.

      There is a tremendous amount of truth to your sentiments. The consensus from the 2016 U.S. presidential election was that a large number of voters who supported Obama in 2008 and 2012 defected from their respective parties to vote for Donald J. Trump in 2016 to push him over 270 electoral votes to win.

    So now we’ll admit that the Islamic terrorists are bad guys, but only because they’re obviously working with the guys who want to kill them? Makes sense.

      Jihadis think it’s good to die for Allah. Under a Le Pen (Le Phone?) administration more jihadis will die for Allah. A Le Pen administration is good.

      What could be simpler?
