Jihadis Murder 12 in Paris

Three jihadi terrorists stormed the office of a French satirical newspaper, murdering 12 and injuring five others. The paper, Charlie Hebdo, was known for leveling crass satire against politicians and religious groups, including Muslims. In 2011, the paper was firebombed after adherents of the “Religion of Peace™” took offense at a caricature of Muhammad posted by the paper. Hebdo picked itself back up and published a few more cartoons skewering Muhammad and more recently, Islamic State leaders, who filled the terror vacuum in the Middle East after Obama claimed victory against al-Qaida ahead of his 2012 re-election bid. In a clip aired on French television, the attackers are recorded shouting, “We have killed Charlie Hebdo. We have avenged the Prophet Mohammad,” and yelling the now familiar refrain “Allahu Akbar.” In a graphic video, one of the terrorists, who has prior convictions for terrorism but was still walking the streets of Paris, is seen murdering a wounded police officer, who was responding to the attack location. (Of course, Obama has released terrorist leaders from Gitmo and they will likely also return to their deadly trade.) Given all the videos that were shot of this attack, it’s too bad that Paris is a gun free zone – instead of videos, someone could have been shooting these attackers dead.

There has been much media handwringing about freedom of speech after North Korea compelled Sony to censor a satirical movie, but the real threats to free speech are Islamist terrorists. Instead of firing off a nasty letter to the editor, the Paris jihadis – who are still at large – brutally murdered Hebdo’s employees. The French have allowed this Islamist menace to fester in their country for years. Now they are paying the price, and make no mistake, this menace is festering in our homeland. Islamists, like Nidal Malik Hasan, who killed 14 people (including an unborn child) and wounded 30 others at Ft. Hood, will continue to strike with increasing frequency. And while the media refers to these deadly assaults as “lone wolf attacks,” there are no such thing – all these actors are part of an ideological Islamist web. (Anyone for terrorist profiling?)

Footnote: Recall if you will that in 2012, Barack Obama proclaimed before the UN, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Ironically he was condemning an Internet video defaming Muhammad, which his administration blamed ahead of the 2012 presidential election for the al-Qaida attack on Benghazi. Obama’s campaign was built on having defeated al-Qaida. (And laughably, he also proclaimed, “It is time to leave … the politics of division behind.” Of course, Obama has built his political career on the “divide-and-conquer” politics of disparity, whether classism or racism, etc.
