French soldiers patrol in front of the Eiffel Tower on January 8, 2015 in Paris as the capital was placed under the highest alert status a day after heavily armed gunmen shouting Islamist slogans stormed French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and shot dead at least 12 people in the deadliest attack in France in four decades. A  huge manhunt for two brothers suspected of massacring 12 people in an Islamist attack at a satirical French weekly zeroed in on a northern town Thursday after the discovery of one of the getaway cars. As thousands of police tightened their net, the country marked a rare national day of mourning for Wednesday's bloodbath at Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, the worst terrorist attack in France for half a century.

France calls for ‘enlightened Islam’ against jihadist ideology, then asks for Pony for Christmas

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve urged French Muslim leaders on Sunday to develop an “enlightened Islam” to confront what he called the obscurantist views of Islamic State that lead young Muslims into violence.

At their first meeting since the Nov. 13 killings of 130 people, he told about 400 Muslim leaders, imams and activists that France would do everything it could to track criminals, but only they could win the battle of ideas within Islam.

    What would happen if your average Frenchman suddenly realized how little their own government cared about them?
    Their lives are worth less than the hurt feelings of your average unemployed, welfare immigrant.
    That’s not very much.

    • Not much at all.

    • Dana Garcia

      It’s not just France that has uncaring elites…

    Didn’t they call for enlightened NAZI’ism in 1940.

    The only way Muslims are going to become enlightened is if the lives of the unenlightened ones become a lot more difficult.

    It may take putting out contracts on the noisiest imams before somebody in the Muslim world gets the message.

    Minister Cazeneuve would do well to heed the advice my old guvnor gave me regarding “bad” guys.

    “The only time these guys pay attention and listen is when you flatten them.
    Actually….metaphorically….legally…..however you care…..and no half measures!”

    I personally would employ my variation of the old “honey trap” ruse tailored for
    One maintains a herd of post menarche goats ……when the goats are in heat our men insert a nanny into every mosque ….perhaps at the midnight hour…..every nanny will have been coiffed and scented with her horns and hooves brightly burnished but with a GoPro on a live feed inside their vaginas….

    The results requires no further explanation…the propaganda value would priceless.

  • Spatchcocked

    Unorthodox….yes, but not I say dubious concerning results.Remember the cavalry hooted at the notion of a ‘tank’……the Navy laughed at the
    ‘Mini sub’. ….they derided Henry Ford for his production line concept…

    Hit the Mahometan where he is most vulnerable ……that place being his unbridled lust for children of either sex and the beasts of the field.

  • Spatchcocked

    The CIA and their exploding cigar for Castro (Justin’s uncle Fidel) …
    The polonium tipped umbrella ferrule in London Town….
    Oh hell even Irma Bundt of Bond fame…

    The goats in heat are sounding very much more thinkable and doable I dare say.
