Rambouillet attacker suffered from ‘personality disorders’

The investigation into the most recent knife attack at the Rambouillet police station, which claimed the life of a 49-year-old white police officer, concluded that the terrorist had been radicalized in recent months and had suffered from "personality disorders". Five people are still in police custody, including a cousin of the assailant.

    “The radicalization of the aggressor seems hardly questionable,” the judge confirmed and added that the “the presence of certain psychological disturbances could be observed”.

    The investigation, conducted by French intelligence, suggested that Djamel Gorchene became involved in radical Islam in the fall of 2020. In the context of the republication of the Mohammed cartoons by “Charlie Hebdo” and the assassination of Samuel Paty, he justified an armed response against those which offend the prophet. He also regularly listened to the speeches of Islamist preachers, in particular a sheikh in Qatar, supporting the resentment of Muslims against Western countries.

    Due to “personality disorders” on February 19 and then on February 23, he saw a psychiatrist at Rambouillet hospital. A friend of Djamel Gorchene, who had provided him with an accommodation certificate when he arrived in France in 2009, also told the police that he had noticed that the future killer was “depressed” at the time. But his condition did not raise any particular concern according to the doctor, however, since he was prescribed treatment or hospitalization.

    On Facebook, Djamel Gorchene followed the news of several Tunisian figures of Salafism.

    The government has vowed to protect the police to avert similar attacks, but RN member Jordan Bardella dryly remarked: “We will protect the police by other police. Then we will protect the police officers who protect the police by Sentinel soldiers. And we will put up barricades to protect the Sentinel soldiers. What if we simply stopped importing terrorists?”

      Some politicians also suffer from personality disorders. A few hours after the Tunisian beheaded a policewoman, the far-left Montpellier mayor (PS-EELV-PCF) preferred to pay homage to illegal immigrants rather than to the murdered official. Unlike the mayor, who finally communicated on the subject, the deputy mayor did not sign any personal message about the Rambouillet attack. On Saturday, however, she again provided support to the NGO SOS Méditerranée.

      A comment, and questions. We have seen the mental illness excuse for jihadist attacks used again and again in a number of European countries. The aim is to perpetuate the ‘lone wolf’ claim that the perpetrators of jihadist attacks act alone, and often have mental problems. The reality is that this attacker, like others, was groomed and indoctrinated to commit the attack, and had a support network that included his family. The ‘lone wolf’ idea is purely fiction. Now some questions. If this fellow has been an illegal since 2009, despite being ‘regularized’, then why was his family in France? How did they get there? Was it because of him, or was it the other way around? And what was their role in priming him for the attack? Let us see if we ever get a satisfactory answer from the authorities.
