This satiric video by Mark Fiore from the USA says about itself:
Thank You. Love, ISIS
12 April 2016
If we carry out police crackdowns just because people are Muslim and ratchet up the torturing in response to ISIS attacks, the terrorists have won. I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s true. These religious nutballs want nothing more than for the West to pour gasoline on the fire and drive more recruits to their apocalyptic mission.
Dutch NOS TV headlined on 21 April 2017 (translated):
Trump positive about [French extreme right presidential candidate Marine] Le Pen: most strongly against terrorism

‘Most strongly against terrorism‘? Then, how about the satiric Mark Fiore video, and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, stating that Trump (and similar politicians like US Republican Ted Cruz, and Marine Le Pen) are recruiting sergeants for ISIS?
How about the report that Trump’s business and political cronies in Indonesia are working on a coup d’état jointly with ISIS supporters?
The NOS report says that it is very unusual for a United States President to say something positive on a candidate in an election in a European country.
The NOS also mentions that ex-president of the USA Obama on Thursday called French presidential candidate Macron to wish him success. The militarist and pro-austerity Macron, who wants to start an anti-environment gold mine in French Guiana, is not a good alternative to racist Marine Le Pen. That would rather be left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon; the only candidate with the courage to call Ms Le Pen a fascist; instead of incorrect euphemisms like ‘populist’.
The first round of the elections in France is being held against the backdrop of an attempt by the state and the media to use the violent incident on the Champs Elysées, involving a gunman who is alleged to have been acting on behalf of ISIS, to create an atmosphere of political hysteria. With over 50,000 soldiers and policemen set to deploy to polling stations tomorrow, the elections are to be held at gunpoint: here.

FRENCH Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve accused the far-right National Front (FN) yesterday of trying to exploit Thursday night’s terrorist shooting to gain electoral advantage.
In the wake of the Isis-claimed attack on Paris’s famous Champs-Elysees boulevard that left one police officer and the gunman dead and two wounded, FN leader and presidential candidate Marine Le Pen called for EU free movement rules to be suspended.
In a statement from her campaign headquarters in Paris, Ms Le Pen urged government and judicial authorities to prosecute all individuals on French territory known for “their adhesion to the enemy’s ideology.”
But left presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon retorted that true patriots would avoid “gross and vulgar polemics” and stand up for “republican values.”
Mr Cazeneuve noted that the FN had voted in 2014 against an anti-terrorism law and in 2015 against legislation to boost resources for French intelligence services.
“She seems to be deliberately forgetting everything that has been done over five years to make people forget that she opposed everything, without ever proposing anything serious or credible,” he said.
He added that “as after every drama, the National Front candidate seeks to profit … to divide. She seeks, without shame, to exploit fear and emotions for purely political ends.”
The murdered officer was named as Xavier Jugele by French LGBT police association Flag! Mr Jugele was among officers who responded to the terrorist attack on Paris’s Bataclan concert hall in November 2015.
