    Before the jihadist was eventually shot and killed by police storming the building, Arnaud Beltrame, a colonel in the gendarmerie, had offered himself in exchange for the last of the hostages taken during an attack claimed by ISIS.

    The manner in which Beltrame was killed has been suppressed by the news media both inside and outside of France. News stories reported that he had “received injuries to the neck”, and others noted that he had been “stabbed in the neck”. But Beltrame was in fact slaughtered like an animal in an Islamic zabiha ritual: his throat was slit, as required by the Quran.

    In an article published in Riposte Laïque, on 26 March 2018, Jeanne Bourdillon noted that “Colonel Beltrame was slaughtered like a sheep at the Feast of Eid!”

    Readers learn that Colonel Beltrame died with his throat slit, but no newspapers reported the facts.

    The publication received a tweet from one of their readers last Friday evening, but hesitated to make it public, fearing a false rumour. But it turned out to be true.

    The French authorities have tried to lie to the public, telling them that the unfortunate colonel, who remained for three hours in the company of his killer, may also have been fatally shot. They had wanted to hide the barbarity of his criminal.

    The tweet is a direct reply to Minister of the Interior Gérard Collomb’s lies in front of the cameras.

    “Minister, stop lying to the people with the help of the media. My surgeon brother is the one who received Lieutenant Colonel Beltrame yesterday at the hospital in Carcassonne; he confirmed to me this morning that in reality, he had his throat slit.”

    The French daily Le Parisien, had headlined the killing with: “Attack in the Aude: Constable Arnaud Beltrame died stabbed in the neck”.

    His killer, Radouane Lakdim, a 25-year-old jihadist who rushed into the store after shooting motorists and a CRS police officer, was armed with a dagger and a 7.65 small-arms pistol. The constable’s service weapon, a 9 mm calibre, was also found near his body. The shots provoked the intervention of the GIGN, which, in response, killed the attacker.

    At various points inside the store Lakdim had arranged improvised explosives, connected to a triggering system, but they did not detonate.

    An autopsy, comprehensive hearings and computer forensics are keeping a team of a hundred investigators from the Counter-Terrorism Sub-Directorate of the Judicial Police and the DGSI (internal intelligence) busy in their investigation.

    Two suspects are still in police custody in connection with the investigation, in particular for “murders in connection with a terrorist enterprise”, in coordination with the Paris anti-terrorist prosecutor’s office. It includes the companion and a friend of Lakdim.

    Magistrates and police officers no longer have any doubts about the ideological references of the jihadist, since in his apartment in Carcassonne they discovered writings alluding to ISIS.

    The attack, which killed a total of four people, was claimed by the terrorist group via its propaganda agency.

    While Le Parisien later reported that “We still don’t know the exact order of the stab wounds and the shots,” it has now become clear that the genderme was butchered and disarmed as soon as he entered the supermarket.
