My prayers to the victims and their families. This is just awful to see. And the stories of just outright executing a cop on the street who was injured and had his hands up is appalling. Today, I stand in support of good Frenchmen who condemn this and take a stand to fight for their homeland, their culture and their nation.
I hope we don't run the risk of anesthetizing ourselves to such barbaric acts of violence since they happen with such frequency.
|Quoting EA CO AS (Reply 54):|
France is one of the only western nations that doesn't mollycoddle and acquiesce to the desires of immigrants from Muslim countries. It's a shame more western nations don't embrace their approach.
Europe’s 50 countries have roughly 38M Muslims, 5% of total population. Germany has more than 4M
Muslims, as many as North/South American combined (strangely, that means Germany has more Muslims than Lebanon does) and puts it in top 10 of nations with largest number of muslims living there as minorities. France has a slightly higher percentage of Muslims than Germany, but estimated slightly fewer Muslims overall, although the French data comes from general population surveys which aren’t always reliable.
France had higher birth rates than most of Europe, but has now fallen below the ‘replacement’ level of 2 children per. Muslim birth rates are much higher. This makes for a demographic timebomb.
|Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 111):|
Charlie Hebdo is precisely the type of free speech that must be protected at all costs, and in fact is the sort of free speech that was specifically intended to be protected by the First Amendment in the US and various constitutions around the world in modern countries. Nothing, not politicians, religions or anything else should be considered "off-limits" for satire and criticism.

Trafalgar square is absolutely jam packed with people holding je suis charlie signs.
I hope this shocks the UK into action as well. They're really hosed with islamic immigration.
|Quoting 11Bravo (Reply 132):|
It is self evident that Muslims do not get the concepts of pluralism, openness, and tolerance.
BOOM. And that's the key--they NEVER have. Let me repeat that, they NEVER HAVE. In their entire radical existence since 632 A.D., they've contributed nothing, created nothing, destroyed almost everything they've touched, have a proven historical and factual track record of never being able to coexist in any other culture.
Total intolerance of any dissenting opinion or lifestyle, yet they demand conformance and accommodation to theirs.
I hope France uses this tragedy as a means to secure themselves against such terrorists.
