this story is all over world news, and france is close to lockdown.

still amazes me, when others point to the islamist vengeance calls of perpetrators of these terrorist acts, that some people continue to believe that "anyone could've done it". there is a toxic virus proliferating in extremist islam which fortifies terrorism.

Warning: the demise of humour, satire and free expression in a nation precedes the imposition of a totalitarian form of government. This process has been repeated many times throughout history.

There is also a "toxic virus" that assails the brains of Western politicians, their media and many supporters that also seeks to ameliorate this sort of behaviour by a combination of claiming that "this is not the true Islam" and desperate attempts to pin a "Christian" motivation label on to non-Muslim violent acts like the Oklahoma bombing. If one can gauge the psyche of Mr Mohamed by his biography I am sure that were he alive today he would give full approval for these murders in Paris.

The world is in shock at the moment and in the comming weeks this incident will be discussed and mulled over ad infinitum.
Did Catholics bomb and execute Hebdo for their satirization of the Pope? Did Americans for our presidents? Did anyone else?
To paraphrase Einstein, the world is evil because no one does anything about it.
Is ANYONE going to DO something about terrorism besides dumbly talking about it?

There was a big demonstration outside of the French Consulate in San Francisco (and many other cities) on Wednesday, to show support for Charlie, the French people, and Free Speech.

A Care2 friend shared some cartoon images from the magazine or newspaper. They were offensive. They portrayed the Muslims as degenerate sodomites—a morally filthy creed. The cartoons were meant for debasing the Islamic culture.
We are entitled to FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!! Sometimes, we have to allow people the right to express their opinions no matter how offensive their opinions might be!
These victims did not deserve a bunch of terrorists wounding and killing them. In truth, an Islamic organization should have sued and financially penalized the newspaper or magazine in a French court of law!!!

However, these images were/are very vulgar, though! But, then, I find the Islamic culture very vulgar in its way of treating women and children. The ideology simply sexually abuses women and children!!! Wafa Sultan, a Syrian Muslim, states that throughout her book, A God Who Hates, and so does several other ex-Muslim women authors!!!

There's only one cult on our planet that can't take criticism/satire. We all know which one.

"They portrayed the Muslims as degenerate sodomites—a morally filthy creed. The cartoons were meant for debasing the Islamic culture."

What culture - you mean followers of the desert bandit who thieved,tortured,murdered,raped and thought of women as domestic animals without many brains who gave some kafirs the choice of Convert,pay the jizya or die whilst others they just murdered
and one of whose ayatollahs thought it ok to have sex with animals

were these cartoons depicting reality -- I think so
Anyone who disagrees with mohammed is an apostate and can be murdered - once you are in,it is a death sentence to get out

a good mohammedan to the westerner is a bad mohammedan in islam

Used to be a time when you heard ISIS you knew the ice-cream van had arrived
