Gun attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo kills 11

Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 11 people and injuring 10, French officials say.

Witnesses spoke of sustained gunfire at the office as the attackers opened fire with assault rifles.

The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its take on news and current affairs.

Its latest tweet was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

An eyewitness, Benoit Bringer, told French TV channel Itele: “Two black-hooded men entered the building with Kalashnikovs. A few minutes later we heard lots of shots.”

The men were then seen fleeing the building.

“It’s carnage,” French police official Luc Poignant told another French channel, BFMTV.

The magazine was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Charlie Hebdo is one of the eleven killed.

    • Bastards

    • Pete_Brewster

      Mission accomplished.

    • This was inevitable. Charlie Hebdo had made fun of Mohammad and Islam a number of times. And has been repeatedly threatened by jihadists.

      This attack is part of a continuous tactic of sowing terror.

      What French (or other European) will be willing to speak freely about Islam after this.

      Islam is just numbers gone bad. A small number of Muslims and you might feel fear. A large number of Muslims and you will feel fear.

      This is the heart and soul of what Islam’s pathology is. More Muslims equals more fear.

      Read my complete thesis on this at:

  • Porky17

    A clear manifestation of the wonderful enrichment of French society by muzloid immigration! Let’s watch the pundits talk about “lone wolves” and an outbreak of “mental illness”. We all know this has NOTHING to do with islam!

    • Yes, we must increase Muslim immigration lets all write Ottawa.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        Reverse should work…whatever the majority of citizens desire, government will inevitably do the opposite…like they live and breathe just to piss us all off…

  • ontario john

    I think all blog websites should carry pictures of mohammad all day in protest of this attack on our culture, and freedoms. The media has been giving non stop coverage of the muslim journalist in Egypt, but I bet when journalists are actually killed in Paris they will drop the story as fast as they can.

    • Fucking Bastards, I can’t wait for the first “Nothing to do with Islam” comment.

      • Porky17

        The imams and “peaceful taqiyya artists” will be frothing and foaming at the mouth. *ugh*

        • tom_billesley

          How will they handle a street battle between security forces and banlieusards?
          The attackers are reported to have fled towards the eastern banlieues where there are thought to be weapons caches and known to be groups of people antagonistic to police authority.

          • Pete_Brewster

            They’ll be in Switzerland by tonight and Syria by tomorrow morning. No real effort will be made to stop them.

          That is the disgusting truth.

      • moraywatson

        “Nothing to do with islam”, followed by “Why do we have to keep apologizing”, followed by “We are the victims because there is going to be a backlash”. The totalitarians of islam are SICKENING>

      • It is already being said in the French media and by French politicians. They all keep repeating like a mantra “ne pas faire d’amalgames”. As for Cameron and Merkel, they were careful not to mention Islam in their speeches on the subject.

    • Pete_Brewster

      I’d like to think this’ll bring the hacks to their senses. But it won’t. Charlie Hebdo is being made an example of.

      • Frau Katze

        They’ll be doubling down on NTDWI.

  • The_Infidel_01

    BBC have no idea what the motivation is, even after reporting that the gunmen declared “we have avenged the prophet mohummad”. If they can’t figure it out by now, they are doomed, Europe was nice while it lasted, but alas, they have decided to commit suicide.

    • Oh Cripes.

    • Santos2

      To be honest, Europe wasn’t really that “nice while it lasted”, either.

            I’ve seen it before in a dozen different hellholes and I always heartily recommend learning how to defend yourself with any means possible at your disposal.

  • Iamnotweetoddit

    .However matters may go in France or with the French Government or with
    another French Government, we in this island and in the British Empire
    will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people. If we
    are now called upon to endure what they have suffered we shall emulate
    their courage, and if final victory rewards our toils they shall share
    the gains, aye. And freedom shall be restored to all. We abate nothing
    of our just demands—Czechs, Poles, Norwegians, Dutch, Belgians, all who
    have joined their causes to our own shall be restored.

    What General Weygand has called the Battle of France is over … the
    Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the
    survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British
    life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The
    whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler(Islam)
    knows that he(they) will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If
    we can stand up to him,(them) all Europe may be freed and the life of the
    world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

    But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States,
    including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss
    of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by
    the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our
    duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its
    Commonwealth[note 5] last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.

    Everytime you see or think Nazi, insert muslim and islam. The lights across Europe are dimming, they may never return.

    Oh how I hope this is a real turning point in how the west deals with this filth.

    • The_Infidel_01

      Yep, the BBC has already put forward exactly this. I am listening to it right now. Basically they are saying the muslims were perfectly in their rights to deal with the uppidy kaffir

    • Pete_Brewster

      No. This is intended as a lesson in manners to any kuffar tempted to make hajji look bad. Charlie has been made an example of.

      You really think the Elysée will change their tune? If Hollande has any sense of gratitude a case of the best cognac is waiting for each gunman in Syria. Everyone who mattees wins—hajji and Hollande both.

  • David Murrell

    My heart and prayers go out to the family of Charlie Hebdo and the other staff, and to the French policemen.
    One thing. Some conservatives may depreciate the French — in France and Quebec — for many valid reasons. But I think this massacre will help stiffen the French in France, such that the country will probably hit back at Muslims and Islamists in France. France is not Sweden. They have a fairly tough attitude against Islam.
    Note that France has established a forward base in northern Nigeria, ready to hit back at Islamists in Libya. I realize that Prime Minister Allonde is Obama-like. But we should all support France now, and support the probably hard counterpunches the country will undertake moving forward.

    • Pete_Brewster

      Somewhere Hollande is laughing like a lunatic. You think he doesn’t benefit from anti-Muslim journalists being made an example of?

    • b_marco

      French security services are no joke. There’s gonna be trouble.

  • Pete_Brewster

    May the fallen at Charlie Hebdo rest in peace and may justice against their murderers be swift.

    I mean, of course, Hollande and his gang in the Elysée, who are now rid of a particularly irritating gadfly.

    Three may keep a secret if two are dead. The gendarmerie don’t have the excuse of “lone wolf, unpredictable, nobody’s fault but his.” They almost certainly knew about it and nothing was done till it was too late. Why?

  • Ron MacDonald

    It’s only a matter of time before vigilantes organize and
    start killing Muslims in Europe.

    • I hope not. I hope that governments come to their senses and restrict Islamic immigration. However that will be difficult in France where may are in fact citizens from former colonies.

      Suddenly I have much less sympathy.

      The cover of what will probably be the last issue had a caricature, drawn by Charbonnier, of “the mage [Michel] Houellebecq,” the author of Soumission dressed as a pantomime wizard. “In 2015, I’ll lose my teeth.” predicts the “mage.” “In 2022 I’ll keep Ramadan!”

Les temps ont changé, nous entrons dans une nouvelle période de cette confrontation”. Et de poursuivre : “Nous sommes horrifiés par la brutalité et la sauvagerie dans les locaux de Charlie Hebdo”.

        “Nous condamnons absolument ces faits de ce genre et nous attendons des autorités les mesures les plus justes. La communauté est abasourdie par ce qui vient de se passer. C’est un pan entier de notre démocratie qui est gravement atteint”, a ajouté le religieux.

    Ah yes, another attack by the cult of peace. This goes on and on and politicians continually say that the attacks are not part of the true followers of islam. Well please tell me just who are the true followers of islam? The one’s who behead people, blow up shopping markets, attack children with acid and burn down schools, churches and synagogues?

    The one’s who riot over cartoons and now are attempting to silence the press because this particular magazine has insulted mohammad….Who, by the way was a sadistic child molester.

    Or is it the one’s who sit silently by, listening to their imams preach that anything non-muslim must be destroyed through violence. Is there not any group of muslims who condemn this continuing march by these bloodthirsty thugs of death and destruction?

    Not ONE muslim TRULY will condemn this and actually mean it. Not one single muslim will take to the streets to condemn isalmic violence.

    Islam is nothing but a cult, born through the mind of a very sick individual some 600 years ago and these monsters have been violent ever since. Knuckle dragging apes.

    He, or it, must be laughing while he toils in hell at the misery that islam continues to inflict on the earth. Disgusting, vile cult.

    Juan “Guano” Williams on FOX News is blaming Islam, straight up no equivocation.

    For the international community, Guano was an NPR (ultra-liberal public radio) reporter who was fired when he confessed on television to being concerned when he flew and Moslems in full Islamic garb boarded the plane. FOX immediately picked him up and he’s continued to infuriate Conservatives with his far-left views for the past several years, although he is quite critical of NPR and the way he was treated there. Expect the left to attack him again over his latest anti-Islam comments.

    “Le mode opératoire dénote un entraînement poussé

    Le mode opératoire des tueurs impliqués dans l’attentat contre l’hebdomadaire, leur calme, leur détermination et leur efficacité, est la marque d’hommes ayant subi un entraînement poussé, de type militaire, selon des sources policières.

    Les images, prises sur leurs téléphones portables par des témoins de l’attaque, montrent le professionnalisme des assaillants qui ont mené une attaque soigneusement planifiée, soulignent un ancien membre d’un service de protection rapprochée et un ancien de la police judiciaire. “On le voit clairement à la façon dont ils tiennent leurs armes, dont ils progressent calmement, froidement. Ils ont forcément reçu une formation type militaire. Ce ne sont pas des illuminés qui ont agi sur un coup de tête”, assure l’un des policiers. Il souligne qu’ils tiennent leurs kalachnikovs serrées près du corps, tirent au coup par coup et non par rafales, ce qui démontre qu’ils ont été entraînés à s’en servir.

    Selon l’autre policier, ancien de la Police judiciaire, “le plus frappant, c’est leur sang-froid. Ils ont été entraînés en Syrie, en Irak ou ailleurs, peut-être même en France, mais ce qui est sûr c’est qu’ils ont été entraînés”. “

    • Absolutely. The execution video shows they are skilled with weapons. Further the entire attack took only minutes allowing them to escape quite handily. Then they switched getaway cars indicating a sophisticated level of planning.

They will speak tough for a while, but they will pull their tail in, lower their ears and crawl quietly out of the way.

    Jewish Home Chairman and Economics Minister Naftali Bennett sharply criticized Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, in a series of remarks at a conference at Rishon LeZion’s Business College.

    “Why do not you get on a plane to Paris to solve the problems there?” Bennett fired, referring to Wednesday’s horrific shooting rampage by Islamists at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine. “Maybe you can manage the negotiations, offer them a political peace deal, because this is the solution. Offer to the French to ‘end the occupation’ and for peace, apologize for the cartoon. It always works.”

    “Explain to them that peace is made with enemies, there is a partner, and maybe you can divide Paris and give it to those fundamentalist Muslims,” he continued. “Maybe say you’re not against the cartoons – but the timing is right. The success is so beautiful – see how it worked in Gaza and Lebanon. Send a delegation to bring that experience to their countries.”

    Bennett then set his target to the political left at large.

    “The Left is stuck in the nineties – the same words, the same slogans, those apologies,” he said. “Blood continues to be spilled and the Left just does not see it.”

    “What else needs to happen in the world, in Israel, in Gaza, for them to wake up?” he continued. “Should several missiles fall to wake them up? Do they not realize that the terrorist who tramples a baby in Jerusalem and terrorists who attack in Paris are the same – that they are both fundamentalist Islamists? We are in the Middle East, not in Scandinavia.”

      Would Mr. Bennett support the release and pardon of Yigal Amir?

      • I do not know. But I doubt it very much. Murder is murder.

    Canadian federal opposition leader Thomas Mulcair is commenting on this and said that freedom of speech of essential.

    He then also went on to say that freedom of religion is essential and that includes “respect for others’ religions”. (Around 10:50-10:56 a.m. EST)

    When asked by one reporter if that includes “respect for sharia”, Mulcair that that he had no comments on that today.

      Did he end up getting those body guards he requested to protect him from the mentally ill?

      Ooo, that reporter was definitely not from CBC. CBC after 300 nonPC comments closed commenting on the story.

        Yup, mine didn’t even make the censors cut. And I didn’t think it was too bad.

    • Really? Which station?

      • Reader

        I was watching CBC News Network as Rogers is having some problems and a number of stations are blank for me right now.

  • One of those killed had declared preferring to die standing than to live on his knees. Truly inspiring statement.

    Charb, tué à l’âge de 47 ans lors de la fusillade au siège de «Charlie Hebdo», faisait partie de l’équipe qui avait relancé le journal en 1992. Après l’incendie criminel dans les locaux de l’hebdomadaire en 2011, il avait déclaré qu’il préférait «mourir debout que vivre à genoux»

    • My God, if true then he is a hero.

      I wouldn’t call him a martyr quite yet. Charlie’s editorial stance was hard left, and anti-Semitic cartoons were as common as anti-Islam cartoons in Charlie. The last issue’s cover mocked author Michel Houellebecq for his alleged Islamophobia.

      When asked to explain himself by his Creator, Charbonnier won’t be able to claim he wasn’t warned.

        Are you an agent provocateur?

      • I am quite aware the victims were rabid leftists, and not friends of Jews or Israel. Nevertheless, what was at stake here was freedom of speech versus fascist suppression of speech.
        As regards Houellebecq, I saw a long interview with him on French TV (A2) yesterday. I would not call him an Islamophobe, far from it. I would rather say he is toying with the idea of personal Islamic conversion, and not too averse that France might end up Moslem. Indeed, far from a cry of alarm, his book seems to be preparing the ground for just such a turn of events in peoples’ minds, which he sees as quite possible if not certain.
