From the Daily Mail A heroic customer at the kosher supermarket in Paris snatched one of the terrorist's guns and turned it on the hostage taker - only to find it was jammed, leaving the extremist to execute him in cold blood. I think the correct word is murder.  The dramatic account was revealed ...Read More...

The shots in the Paris street that were seen and heard around the world killed Ahmed Merabet, a Muslim policeman going to the defense of Charlie Hebdo: a reminder that by no means all Muslims in France, far from it, are France-hating, Allahu-akbar-shouting fanatics, and that many are well-integrated. ...Read More...

From the National Post of Canada. The attack on the magazine, which left 12 dead, and Coulibaly’s apparently coordinated actions, which resulted in the deaths of a police officer Thursday and four hostages Friday, highlight the growing problem of radicalization among young, disenfranchised French ...Read More...

Here is the article. It's meant to be tough on Islam and Muslims, by asking them to stand up and denounce the murderers in Paris for "not being Muslims." It contains statements that are both widely disseminated, and absurd. The first is the idea that since one of the policemen killed was a Muslim, this ...Read More...

The government-subvented mosques, the government-paid imams (Dalil Boubakeur in the lead), will turn out the troops, or enough of them, expressing their fake indignation and supposed solidarity with the laic Republic and Voltaire and so on and so forth.

The French intelligence services surely have been monitoring many mosques. And the most deceptive and cunning  of trhe Muslim clerics, such as Amar Lasfar (who hopes you won't google him, and find out what he's said over the past decade) are all for encouraging, for the sake of Islam's image, that imams ...Read More...

Here. The Ahmadis are killed in Pakistan, for being Infidels who dare to consider themselves Muslims. They are not allowed, on official documents, to declare themselves to be Muslims.

Whether, like Amedy Coulibaly, Muslims in France take their orders from the Islamic State, or from a wild-eyed or smooth imam, or from what they read in the Qur'an and have glossed by the Sunnah, any Muslim in France who follows such orders is a permanent threat to the well-being of the non-Muslims ...Read More...
