The Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris shocked the world with their brutality. Now, authorities are desperately searching for dozens of other Islamic extremists they believe are laying in wait. And this new information has many fearing that the attacks against Europe have only just begun.
The murderous Muslim terrorist who led the savage Paris attacks also bragged that he slipped into France with a group of 90 extremists from Europe and the Middle East, according to testimony from the woman who tipped police to his location.
In an interview that aired Thursday by RMC television and confirmed by her lawyer, the woman identified only as Sonia said Abdelhamid Abaaoud was proud of the attack that killed 130 people.
The 42-year-old woman was with Abaaoud’s female cousin on Nov. 15 when the younger woman got a call from a Belgian number. It was Abaaoud, asking for a hideout.
The two women drove to a deserted industrial road outside Paris and Abaaoud came out of a bush. It was at that moment she realized who he was, according to her testimony. What followed is Abaaoud’s only known conversation about the attacks and their aftermath — with a woman so horrified and angered by the bloodshed that she challenged him repeatedly.
She said the Islamic State group commander told her he had entered France without documents, among a group of 90 people that had scattered around the Paris region. She accused him of killing innocent people, which he denied, and challenged the deaths of Muslims that night. Those, she said, he described as “collateral damage.”
“He was proud of himself. That was the worst,” she said. “He appeared to fear no one, a superman. He talked about it as though he was shopping and had gotten a bargain on a box of detergent.”
She asked him whether he had come in with Syrian refugees and he told her he came in a group without any documents. “There are Syrians, Iraqis, French, Germans, British. We came in a group of 90 and we’re a little bit everywhere around Paris.”
She asked him why he needed the help of his cousin, her friend Hasna Ait Boulahcen, who ultimately died in the Saint-Denis apartment with him and another of the gunmen who attacked customers at bars and restaurants in central Paris.
“He told me no, they left a lot of traces and they’ll be identified quickly. And that it’s not over,” she said. His description of the triple suicide bombings at the French national stadium, which claimed only one victim amid a night of carnage: “The exact words of his response were: ‘There were some failures. I am here to make sure that there will be no more.'”
At that point, Abaaoud told Ait Boulahcen to find a hideout, buy a pair of business suits for him and his accomplice and return without wearing the full Islamic dress. As the two women drove away, the Belgian number rang again, this time threatening Sonia if she spoke.
As soon as Ait Boulahcen left her apartment the next morning — Monday, Nov. 16 — Sonia called police and got a response instead from the top intelligence services. All that evening, she tried to persuade the younger woman to abandon her cousin, who she said planned an attack that Thursday on a nursery school, a shopping mall and a police station in the La Defense business district. Finally, the younger woman gave her the address where she was going to hide Abaaoud.

Merkel is taking up the old German tradition of trying to ruin Europe.
It will happen here too. The guy in the White House is bringing them in. We’ve got to get rid of him and elect Trump. He’s our best hope as far as I can see —
Agree 1000% with you. Impeach Obama and his lackeys. We sure need someone with guts and the mouth to go with it.
There are no other republicans or democrats who are worth a plug nickel!!!
TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT! I have not been able to find any bumper stickers yet. Should we have SARAH PALIN as VICE-PRESIDENT? What a hell of a team! A large and drastic change is due in this country. SPEAK SOFTLY AND CARRY A BIG STICK! AND WEAPONS TO DEFEAT “ALL” TERRORISTS.
The DC DICTATOR is working Overtime to bring in the MUZZIE TERRORIST so they can help him MORE RAPIDLY DESTROY THIS NATION….
Much of Europe is waking up…Sweden and Finland and some other Nations are starting the DEPORT these TERRORIST….but Merkel is must be Completely BRAIN DEAD…as she wants to keep bringing more of the TERRORISTS to Germany….It appears that she learned no lessons from History….Both from the 1400 year history of the TERRORIST DESTRUCTION OF ISLAM….plus Destruction of what her own Country’s Former Dictator Hitler did to Germany…

YES. I AM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT. TOO LATE FOR ME TO CHAGE PARTIES. SO I REFUSE TO VOTE IN MY STATE’S PRIMARY..DONALD TALKS ABOUT THIS AND THEY, THE ESTABLISHMENT, PULLS THE RACE CARD. BUT THE ENEMY IS WAITING IN THE SHADOWS TO KILL US. DONALD TRUMP IN 16.
Deport these people immediately
Europe has asked for this themselves. They have open borders without any vetting of these scum bags. Until they take on Donald Trumps’ idea and stop importing any of them, they may be able to get a hand on it. I doubt very seriously they will do anything but wring their hands at the next attack. You know what they plan to do once they get enough people into a country, they will enforce Sharia law, they will be blowing up any opposition with bombs, beheading citizens in the streets. This is their plan until they control all of Europe. You all asked for this.
I have a nice M4 assault rifle and 9mm pistol and plenty of rounds to go with them.
I believe in the 2nd Amendent and the Constitution and a government of, by, and for the people. Not the other way around like many politicians want. WE HAVE TO VOTE THESE VORACIOUS INSECTS OUT OF GOVERNMENT ONCE AND FOR ALL. It is the peoples fault for letting these idiots into our government. AND, petitions have to be started for term limits on governors, mayors, local government officials, and especially our “elite” members of congress and the senate. Can you just imagine a president having more than two terms now? Maybe the presidential term should be reduced to one term only. Then perhaps having the then vice-president take over, unless voted out of office. Things really have to change to get this country on being great again. Not whipped.
forgot one thing. Law enforcement officials, fire fighters, EMT, Paramedics, and the like should not be set to any time limit unless they are in serious violation of any written law.
And military services should be looked at more astutely (benefits, etc.) as they are the principle defenders of this great nation. Hundreds and perhaps thousands of them are killed, wounded, or missing in action every year around the globe. But “obama” did not do much to grant them a little more of a pay increase for their dedicated worldwide services.
And note, social security recepients, military retirees, and V.A. compensation did not see much of or nothing. However, if the congress and senate along with the white house get a large raise they don’t kill that.

I VOTED FOR MITT IN THE LAST ELECTION
That’s what I thought—WHY were the refugees mostly young MEN who should have stayed and fought for their land and country–I see very few woman and children–very few! They should NOT have let in young men and NEITHER SHOULD THE U.S.!!! Woman with children only and then only temporarily until ISIS is gone!!!
They are already enforcing Sharia law. The German Gov’t is telling women to dress more modestly, especially in public.
Randy F says
This is not Sharia Law, it’s Gods Law.
What is this in are country catch and release from Obama? Why are the Americans putting up with the guy?
White Eagle says
Because our congress is too corrupt also to impeach him apparently. Heck, they are giving him more power with fast track, and will probably give away our soverngty to the corporations with the trans-Pacific Trading bills.
Brain dead, tree hugging, bleeding heart liberal idiots deserve to go first.

Donald Trump said it first, was branded a joke and the Media tried to portray, as….all talk …no action…blow hard Billionaire …who was misleading …the American people…after what has happened in Germany., Sweden, Greece, he is and was right and the American people from before he announced he was running for the Presidency voiced loud and strong ..we need you..we believe you..we are tired of crooked politicians ..we are tired of a racist liar, who does not pay attention to Congress..and proudly states I have a pen and will use it . To have Muslims In Great Britain sign a petition because of closing our boarders to un vetted Muslims..is outragest …but not unforeseen ..after all threir Koran..spells out how to treat infadels …and make their countries your own..It is sad that a country that we thought was our best friend is being over run with unsafe areas and accepting their laws . To read that not one person defended Donald at their meeting was ludiquest ..I will say no more ..when Donald becomes President and he gets fawned over by their government ..if I was in his place I would choose my words carefully but in a nice way let them know exactly how I feel about how I was treated unjustly
Carter support ing trump over cruz because “he”more.mamiable” I want president that cant be manipulated
Justin W says
ISIS probably has its terrorists spread around the globe. This movement should have been destroyed before it had the chance to become so large. Yet President Obama had wanted us to go to war in Syria as an ally to ISIS.
Perfectly said .All W.H. wants to fight side by side with ISIS against everybody else. Against Syria , against Putin -because Putin and Assad are fighting against ISIS.
TRUMP FOR PREZ
He’s not taking any shit from anybody, YES he is the man we need , to get us out of the hole obama got us into. I am so sick and tired of getting side glances from muslims now. It has not only become a war with our countries but also in our mall’s ,banks, dental offices,schools. My children and I were in the dentist office the other day and some muslim people came in and sat down. My 3 children were afraid that we were going to be hurt and they wanted to leave. I have NEVER encountered anything like this before. My children are afraid. I was around in the 60’s with manson ,zodiac and others. But this muslim thing is to much. It’s time to stock up on your amo people. WE ARE AMERICA. LET’S TAKE OUR AMERICA BACK. BE STRONG AND FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY
Susan Barry says
We must keep these muslim people out !!! They are the most violent eating animals !!! We had nice peaceful lives in the past, now, we must think on getting rid of these sleezballs. They are not our culture, put them back into their own wildlife that they created upon themselves, they have been fighting for centuries !. Leave us normal people non-violent Americans alone….Trump is the only man for us !!!!!! All the other candidates are against us also…traitors like the W.H.
White Eagle says
Brining terrorists in apparently deliberately with the open borders policies. To what ends? Im thinking so that the Governments will ultimately have a ready made excuse to clamp down on the freedoms of their populations, and here in the US have an excuse for operating their ‘detainee / refugee’/ Homeland Defence and Fema camps as they round up these illegal immigrants and refugees, with the citizens blessings. Then next will come anyone else whoe’s policitcal views are inconvient to whatever administration is in power. Watch and see…some smaller camps have already been utilized to house the homless.
