Paris terrorist attack: govt operative caught in the act throwing firecracker into cafe

This is a companion post to “Paris terrorist attacks: Strange behavior of 2 women at Café Nostra“.

On November 13, 2015, ISIS terrorists simultaneously attacked several public places in Paris, France, killing anywhere from 125 to 300 people.

One of the places is the Casa Nostra café & pizza restaurant in Rue de la Fontaine au Roi, which was attacked at 9:29 pm.

Daily Mail published the video footage from Casa Nostra’s security camera, which was uploaded to YouTube by HowISeeIt on Nov. 23, 2015.

HowISeeIt claims that a puff of white smoke outside the café came from a firecracker thrown by a woman who then dashes into the café and hides behind the counter. I took a screenshot from the video (see below) and painted a yellow arrow pointing at “firecracker woman”. ↓

Here she is crouched down behind the counter, presumably to conceal herself from the gunman — behaviors you would expect from a victim of a terrorist attack. ↓

I was dubious about the claim that the woman had tossed a firecracker because I didn’t see her doing that in the video.

Thanks to FOTM reader bongiornoc, who pointed me to another video from HowISeeIt — a segment from the first video, in slow motion, which clearly shows the woman tossing a firecracker into Casa Nostra through the broken window of the café door.

Here are screenshots I took from the slow-mo video:

Now why would a woman, who threw a firecracker into a café, run into the very same café and hide behind the counter?

This woman is no victim. She is a false-flag operative.


Paris terrorist attacks: Strange behavior of 2 women at Café Nostra

On November 13, 2015, terrorists simultaneously attacked several public places in Paris, France, killing anywhere from 125 to 300 people, and injuring many more. ISIS or the apocalyptic Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

2015 Paris terrorist attacks

One of the places is the Casa Nostra café & pizza restaurant in Rue de la Fontaine au Roi (underlined in yellow in map above).

According to the map above (from the Daily Mail), shooting began at 9:25 pm in three restaurants/cafés near Casa Nostra, which resulted in 14 deaths. Shooting at Casa Nostra began 4 seconds later at 9:29 pm. A witness said “he saw a terrorist dressed all in black ‘like a combat soldier’ firing short bursts from a machine gun.”

Daily Mail published the video footage from Casa Nostra’s security camera, which was uploaded to YouTube by HowISeeIt on Nov. 23, 2015. (Caution: Totally unnecessary foul language at the beginning of the video)

The video begins with HowISeeIt comparing the sound made by firecrackers vs. a machine gun, thereby making his case that the “gunfire” at one of the attack places, the Bataclan, where a U.S. death metal band was playing, was actually firecrackers.

HowISeeIt then shows the video footage from Casa Nostra. He claims that a puff of white smoke outside the café came from a firecracker thrown by a woman who then dashes into the café and hides behind the counter. I am dubious because the video does not show the woman tossing the firecracker. What I find more curious are the behaviors of two women seated in chairs on the sidewalk outside the café.

But first, let’s look at “firecracker woman”.

At the 12:50 mark in the video, “firecracker woman” runs into the café right after a puff of white smoke is seen outside — and presumably because she had heard gun shots in the three nearby restaurants. Another woman in a white top cowers in a corner of the café. (Ignore the red circle painted by Daily Mail. I painted the yellow arrow pointing to “firecracker woman”.) ↓

Cafe Nostra

At the 12:55 mark, a man flees the “gunfire” outside and runs into the café. “Firecracker woman” is now in the foreground. ↓

Cafe Nostra1

Beginning at the 13:18 mark, three other men flee from the “gunfire” — two men on the sidewalk run away to the right; a third man, crouching, dashes from the counter of the café to the right. ↓

Cafe Nostra2

Despite “firecracker woman” and the four men we’ve seen in the video fleeing from the gunman, two female customers of Casa Nostra managed to stay seated in chairs on the sidewalk.

Beginning at the 13:32 mark, the gunman crosses the street to the sidewalk in front of Casa Nostra, points his AK-47 at one of the female customers seated outside, fires, then points his machine gun at a second female and fires. Then he leaves, supposedly because his machine gun had jammed. ↓

Cafe Nostra3

At the 13:38 mark, one of the two women who just had an AK-47 pointed at her gets up, has the presence of mind to pick up her belongings from the chair next to her, then runs away to the left. ↓

Cafe Nostra4

At the 13:44 mark, the other woman whom gunman had tried to shoot gets up, has the presence of mind to pick up her white shopping bag before she scampers away to the left. ↓

Cafe Nostra5

I find the two women’s behavior utterly incredible:

  1. Both remained on the sidewalk outside Casa Nostra, despite gunshots in nearby restaurants, bullets reportedly spraying and shattering the windows of Casa Nostra, and people fleeing into Casa Nostra or running away down the street.
  2. After a gunman tried to shoot them with an AK-47, both women had the presence of mind to gather their belongings before running away.

Sophia Bejali, 40 (l), and Barbara Serpentini, 18
Daily Mail identified the women as Sophia Bejali, 40, and Barbara Serpentini, 18 — “two friends who had been drinking outside La Casa Nostra pizzeria”. Here’s Daily Mail‘s account of what the women told the newspaper:

As Sophia Bejali and Barbara Serpentini cowered under a table, their eyes shut, a jihadi terrorist who had already killed one customer aimed his AK-47 rifle at them in turn. Standing over them, he pulled the trigger twice – but had run out of bullets. […]

The gunman had earlier sprayed the front of the pizzeria with bullets, killing a man who had come to collect a takeaway pizza.

But as he aimed at the two friends he discovered his AK-47 was either empty or jammed. He is seen on the video nonchalantly walking away and climbing into a black Seat car. Seconds later the women run away. The jihadi meanwhile, reloads and heads to a nearby bar to slaughter more innocent victims enjoying a night out. […]

[Bejali and Serpentini] heard the gunfire heading their way. The few seconds of warning gave Miss Bejali the chance to push her friend under the table and join her.

Her quick reaction meant they missed the spray of bullets that shattered the restaurant’s window. […]

Miss Bejali, who was closest to the door of the pizzeria, said: ‘I just remember this black car stopped just in front of us, right in front of the terrace, and suddenly there were noises which sounded like firecrackers. After a few seconds I realised it wasn’t firecrackers, it was shooting. I pushed Barbara down under the table and she ended up covered in bruises because I had pulled her down too much.

‘I saw him get out of the car but my brain doesn’t allow me to remember what happened next. It is all very vague. We were holding each other tightly. I didn’t see many things because we were hiding and protecting ourselves. I heard lots of shots and it sounded like people were dying all around us. It was so loud I couldn’t hear any screams or anything else. Then the sound stopped and I shouted to Barbara, I said: “Let’s go, run”.’

Here’s a photo of the exterior of Casa Nostra taken by Gerard Misrahi in October 2015 (source). Note the outdoor tables on the sidewalk outside the café. Do they look like tables that the women could hide under to protect themselves from machine guns? Seriously?

Pastor’s wife is perfectly ok with him marrying his pregnant girlfriend

Another wife is just like “having a sister around”….except she sleeps with your husband.

The LADBible reports on a polygamist family that is making news. Belinda Miller (above left in the picture) is a 44-year-old woman and is married to Thom, a 60-year-old mafia enforcer-turned-pastor. Thom also has a girlfriend, 19-year-old Reba Kerfootruba who is pregnant with Thom’s child. Thom is currently building a house in Ohio with two separate wings–one for each of his wives. The trio plans to raise Thom and Reba’s biological child as a family.

Belinda has decided she was happy enough to share her husband with another woman, each having three days a week with him. Thom has made it clear that he is the only person who can have multiple partners in the relationship.

“The whole situation works for all three of us. I am the only one who is allowed to have more than one partner and both my wives understand and appreciate that. I think polygamy benefits everyone because my wives get to have a much larger family – it means they always have a friend with them. There have been arguments in the past and at times there can be flares of jealousy but we manage to make it work. Sexually I have no preference and look forward to my time alone with both wives,” Thom Miller told the Barcroft Media.

Belinda seems to not mind the presence of Reba and doesn’t see her as a threat.

“I wanted to have more of a family – having another lady in the house not only makes our family whole but individually it’s a beautiful thing because it’s like having a sister around. Thom is the love of my life and Reba is the blessing of my life so it all works.” She told Barcroft Media

And the pastor believes his lifestyle fits perfectly within Christianity:

I don’t preach about polygamy but I feel it is a very Christian lifestyle. I have no problem with homosexuals but I think it’s wrong that their marriage is now recognized by the state but my second marriage is not. I’m going to try and fight the bigotry of that – this is America and my wives and I have the right to live anyway we please – providing we’re not hurting anybody.”


This is not a Day Care. It’s a University!

Finally, some one tells it like it is to the special snowflakes!


Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University (a Christian, four-year liberal arts college), wrote a piece for the special snowflakes that perpetually feel like victims. Here’s his piece:

This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt “victimized” by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13. It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love! In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.

I’m not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them “feel bad” about themselves, is a “hater,” a “bigot,” an “oppressor,” and a “victimizer.”

I have a message for this young man and all others who care to listen. That feeling of discomfort you have after listening to a sermon is called a conscience! An altar call is supposed to make you feel bad! It is supposed to make you feel guilty! The goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins—not coddle you in your selfishness. The primary objective of the Church and the Christian faith is your confession, not your self-actualization!

So here’s my advice:

If you want the chaplain to tell you you’re a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you’re looking for. If you want to complain about a sermon that makes you feel less than loving for not showing love, this might be the wrong place.

If you’re more interested in playing the “hater” card than you are in confessing your own hate; if you want to arrogantly lecture, rather than humbly learn; if you don’t want to feel guilt in your soul when you are guilty of sin; if you want to be enabled rather than confronted, there are many universities across the land (in Missouri and elsewhere) that will give you exactly what you want, but Oklahoma Wesleyan isn’t one of them.

At OKWU, we teach you to be selfless rather than self-centered. We are more interested in you practicing personal forgiveness than political revenge. We want you to model interpersonal reconciliation rather than foment personal conflict. We believe the content of your character is more important than the color of your skin. We don’t believe that you have been victimized every time you feel guilty and we don’t issue “trigger warnings” before altar calls.

Oklahoma Wesleyan is not a “safe place”, but rather, a place to learn: to learn that life isn’t about you, but about others; that the bad feeling you have while listening to a sermon is called guilt; that the way to address it is to repent of everything that’s wrong with you rather than blame others for everything that’s wrong with them. This is a place where you will quickly learn that you need to grow up!

This is not a day care. This is a university!

About America’s Rulers


Psalm 58

1 Do you rulers indeed speak justly?
Do you judge people with equity?

2 No, in your heart you devise injustice,
and your hands mete out violence on the earth.

3 Even from birth the wicked go astray;
from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies.

4 Their venom is like the venom of a snake,
like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears,

5 that will not heed the tune of the charmer,
however skillful the enchanter may be.

6 Break the teeth in their mouths, O God;
Lord, tear out the fangs of those lions!

7 Let them vanish like water that flows away;
when they draw the bow, let their arrows fall short.

8 May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along,
like a stillborn child that never sees the sun.

9 Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns—
whether they be green or dry—the wicked will be swept away.

10 The righteous will be glad when they are avenged,
when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 Then people will say,
“Surely the righteous still are rewarded;
surely there is a God who judges the earth.”

Punk rocker at 60 looks demonically possessed

Sometimes while I wander around on the World Wide Web, I am just struck by something I see, even though it’s not about politics or economics or America or the world.

In Oscar Wilde’s book, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the eponymous Gray doesn’t age, but his portrait, concealed in the attic, not only shows his age, it shows his sins as well. Unlike the fictional Gray, however, as we grow old, unless you get plastic surgery, our faces eventually show our character — what kind of person you are.

This is one of those posts.

Would you believe that the man in the photo below ↓

Billy Idol, 30, in 1985

. . . looks like this, 29 years later? ↓

Billy Idol, 59, in 2014

The two pics above are both images of Billy Idol (birth name William Broad), an English punk rocker.

The first photo was taken in 1985 when Idol was 30 years old, for a cover story in Rolling Stone magazine. The second photo was taken in 2014 when Idol was 59 years old. Today is his 60th birthday.

It’s not just the aging. It’s the evil demonic visage, shown vividly in another pic of Idol in 2014:

Billy Idol 59

Wikipedia says Idol, born in 1955, has two children with two women — a son with Perri Lister; a daughter with Linda Mathis.

Idol is a drug addict. He claims to have first smoked marijuana at the age of 12, and took acid at the age of 13. In 1994, he collapsed outside a Los Angeles nightclub due to an overdose on a drug called GHB, which was a legal drug at the time, mainly used by weight-lifters. Idol claims that although he has not completely renounced drug use, he now has his habit under control.

In 2005, Idol released an album, his 6th, called “Devil’s Playground” that reached No. 46 on the Billboard 200. The album’s cover song is “Plastic Jesus”. Other songs on the album include “Monster,” “Evil Eye,” Body Snatcher,” “Stranger in My Skin” and “Man in the Kill Box”. Here are the lyrics of the blasphemous “Plastic Jesus”:

I don’t care if it
Rains or freezes
As long as I’ve got my
Plastic Jesus
Ridin’ on the dashboard
Of my car

Through my trials
And tribulations
And my travels
Through the nation
With my plastic Jesus
I’ll go far . . . .

An if I weave around at night
Policemen think I’m very tight
They never find my bottle
Though they ask

‘Cos plastic Jesus shelters me
For his head comes off you see
He’s hollow and I use him like a flask

Woa Woa Woa

Save me

I don’t care if it’s dark or scary
Long as I got magnetic Mary
Ridin’ on the dashboard of my car . . . .

When I’m goin’ fornicatin’
I’ve got my ceramic Satan
Sittin’ on the dashboard of my car
Women know I’m on the level
Thanks to the wide-eyed stoneware devil
Sneerin’ from the dashboard of my car
