Gearóid Ó Colmáin is a writer and political analyst based in Paris. In this recent interview segment with RT International, he reveals a number of uncomfortable truths about this week’s alleged “ISIS Attacks” in Paris that have seemingly plunged Europe and North America into a pit of mass hysteria, Islamophobia, forced migration, war-hawking, rampant political opportunism and intellectual terrorism…

On the evening of 13 November 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks, consisting of mass shootings, suicide bombings, and hostage-taking, occurred in Paris, the capital of France, and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis. Beginning at 21:20 CET, there were three suicide bombings outside the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, along with another suicide bombing and a series of mass shootings at four locations in Paris.[10] The attackers killed 130 people,[2] including 89 at theBataclan theatre,[11] where they took hostages before engaging in a three-hour stand-off with police. 368 people were injured,[4] 80–99 seriously.[6][5] Seven of the attackers also died, while authorities continued the search for any accomplices.[3] The attacks were the deadliest on France since World War II,[12][13] and the deadliest in the European Union since the Madrid train bombings in 2004.[14]
