12 Dead In Terrorist Attack In Paris
France has been termed the terror capital of Europe, with multiple attacks occurring, as well as others being thwarted, over the last few years. A big plot to blow up the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and a nuclear power plant was foiled in July 2014. Even more plots were foiled in France. There was an attack where an Islamist hit 11 people with a car while yelling “Allahu Ackbar”, which came shortly after another attack by an Islamist on French police in December. Now we have this
(BBC) Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring 10, French officials say.
Witnesses spoke of sustained gunfire at the office as the attackers opened fire with assault rifles before escaping.
Police have launched a major operation in the Paris area in their hunt for the attackers.
Charlie’s latest tweet was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Two black hooded men walked in and opened fire, then escaped, and are still on the loose. Anyone think this has anything to do with the so-called religion of peace?
(UK Telegraph) “Several men in black cagoules were heard to shout ‘the Prophet has been avenged'”, wrote Pierre de Cossette, a broadcast journalist with Europe1 News.
Charlie Hedbo has published numerous satirical pieces and cartoons regarding Islam and Mohammed. They’ve made fun of Christians, Jews, and many, many more. But it is only one that turns violent.
The Guardian reports that 9 reporters and 2 police officers are among the murdered. Also
The journalist Martin Boudot, from the Premières Lignes agency, has posted this video from the roof of a building situated close to the Charlie Hebdo building. we can hear gunshots and voices who cry ‘Allahu akbar’.
Huh. How about that. I’m sure we’ll soon hear about “lone wolfs” and how this has nothing to do with the radical, hardcore beliefs of a chunk of Muslims, unlike when the entire Republican party, all conservatives, all Christians, are blamed for the actions of 1 person.
Francois Hollande has been speaking to the media. He said that 11 people had been killed and four people seriously injured but 40 people had been rescued.
Hollande said that the security level had been increased in Paris and a number of terrorist plots had been foiled in recent weeks.
An emergency meeting will be held at the Elysees Palace in the next hour.
Hollande said France had experienced “an exceptional act of barbarism committed against a newspaper”.
Perhaps France should reconsider their policies which have let vast amounts of illegal aliens from Muslim countries in.
