Muslim waiter braved hail of bullets to save two women’s lives during Paris terror attacks

A Muslim employee — who gave his name only as Safer — at one of the cafés targeted in the horrific attacks in Paris reportedly saved the lives of two injured women by running into the hail of bullets to drag them to safety.

According to the BBC, Safer was behind the bar at Café Nostra when shots rang out.

“I was at the counter. We heard explosions — really loud bangs,” Safer told BBC reporters. “Everyone started screaming, glass rained down on us. It was awful. There was glass all over the place, hitting us in our faces.”

He noticed two injured women outside.

“I saw two women out on the terrace had been hit. One in the wrist and in the other in the shoulder. They were bleeding really badly,” he said.

At a break in the shooting, Safer — who is of Algerian origin — ran outside and helped the two women to safety.

“I picked them up and rushed them downstairs to the basement. I sat with them and tried to stop the bleeding,” he said.

“As we were downstairs, we could hear the gunfire continuing above. It was terrifying,” he recalled.

Safer’s view, he said, is that the attacks have “nothing to do with religion.”

“Real Muslims are not made for killing people,” he said. “These are criminals.”

He encouraged his followers to engage in voter intimidation under the guise of "poll watching," and told armed hate groups to "stand by." Trump also floated a number of baseless conspiracy theories about "voter fraud" that are clearly designed to discourage voting and rationalize legal efforts to stop votes from being counted.

‘You just called me a liar!’: Trump campaign official flips out after he’s fact-checked on Biden ear-piece lie

Published

on

MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin attempted to fact-check President Donald Trump's campaign official, Steve Cortes, on the lies coming out of the campaign, but Cortes refused to back down, instead claiming that the host was calling him a "liar."

Cortes began Tuesday by joining other campaign members accusing Vice President Joe Biden of refusing to have his ears inspected by a third party to prove he's not wearing an earpiece. They falsely claimed that Biden agreed to it but then pulled back on the agreement. The Biden campaign has said that isn't true. So, Mohyeldin asked Cortes who made the agreement with the Biden team. Cortes fumbled around, saying it was "the campaign," but Mohyeldin demanded to know what the name was of the campaign official who made the agreement. Cortes said there was a "debate negotiating committee" who made all the demands. He ultimately couldn't name the name.
