Earlier today – on October 16, 2020, a school teacher was beheaded in a street in Conflans Saint-Honorine, in the Yvelines department near Paris, France.
The teacher reportedly gave his students a lesson on freedom of speech and as part of his lecture, showed them a cartoon of Prophet Mohammad. A parent of one of the students from Chechnya then attacked the teacher and cut off his head.
The killer was later found and shot dead by police in Eragny-sur-Oise, in the Val-d’Oise department.
The message accompanying the image of the teacher’s severed hear reads:
In the name of Allah, the most merciful, the most merciful.
From Abdullah, the servant of Allah, to Macron, the leader of the infidels, I executed one of your hellhounds who dared to belittle Muhammad, calm your fellows before we inflict you a severe punishment…

Best Gore member @clarkia provided the following update:
The teacher, in the scope of the official program of french education, had to present a “freedom of speech and thinking” course to his class.
He decided to use the Charlie Hebdo’s caricatures of Mahomet in this course. However, he allowed any (muslims) students who could be offended by those caricatures, to leave the class before he would show them.
It was the second year he used the caricatures, no incidents were reported last year.
However this year, a parent was offended to learn that the caricatures were shown in class. That parent decided to post a video on social media to condemn this act, while leaving the teacher’s real name and the address of the school where he was working for everyone to see.
Soon after, an 18 years old Chechen born in Moscow, Russia beheaded the teacher.
Many thanks for the update @clarkia.
