“Hey! We avenged the Prophet Muhammed! We killed Charlie Hebdo”

PARIS (AP) — Masked gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar!” stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday, killing 12 people, including the paper’s editor, before escaping in a getaway car. It was France’s deadliest terror attack in living memory.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said security forces were hunting for three gunmen after the noon-time attack on the weekly, whose caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed have frequently drawn condemnation from Muslims. Twelve people died and eight were wounded, including four critically, officials said.

French President Francois Hollande called the slayings “a terrorist attack without a doubt” and said several other attacks have been thwarted in France “in recent weeks.”

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Clad all in black with hoods and machine guns and speaking flawless French, the attackers forced one of the cartoonists at the weekly Charlie Hebdo — at the office with her young daughter — to open the door.

The staff was in an editorial meeting and the gunmen headed straight for the paper’s editor, Stephane Charbonnier — widely known by his pen name Charb — killing him and his police bodyguard, said Christophe Crepin, a police union spokesman on the scene. Minutes later, two men strolled out to a black car waiting below, calmly firing on a police officer, with one gunman shooting him in the head as he writhed on the ground.

Ten journalists were killed and two police, Crepin said, one of them assigned as Charb’s bodyguard and another who had arrived on the scene on a mountain bike.

“Hey! We avenged the Prophet Muhammed! We killed Charlie Hebdo,” one of the men shouted, according to a video filmed from a nearby building and broadcast on French television. Other video images showed two gunmen in black at a crossroads who appeared to fire down one of the streets. A cry of “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great”— could be heard among the gunshots.

The gunmen abandoned their car at the northern Porte de Patin and escaped, Paris police said.

This AP story seems to be the most complete recounting of events thus far.


 Expect a deluge

Islam’s useful idiot apologists will be out in force shortly. Expect the ususal barrage of “Islam is a religion of peace”, “Nothing To Do With Islam”, and  “Muslims fear (imaginary) Backlash” stories.

Our politicians will grovel, as will our security services. The MSM will cower in Dhimmi fear.

The usual suspect Imam’s will be trotted out to “Condemn Terrorism”, just like they are after every Muslim terror attack. This will be hailed as proof of Islam’s benevolence and tolerance and yet somehow the same Muslim community that repeatedly condemns terrorism will continue to spawn more and more acts of terrorism, relentlessly,  every single day without let up.

Deceitful cries of Islamophobia will be employed to silence anyone who dares speak the truth about Islam’s inherent malevolence and the cycle of perpetual victimhood will be reinforced by debauched interfaith sycophants.

Do not be afraid to call your politicians liars when they pronounce Islam  a religion of peace. They are lying, they know they are lying and they know their lies are unsustainable.

They lie about Islam to curry favour with the Muslim community strong men our insane policy of multiculturalism has created. They lie for votes. They will always lie.

Call them on it.

    “President Barack Obama strongly condemned the attacks in a statement released by the White House.”

    “I strongly condemn the horrific shooting at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris that has reportedly killed 12 people,” Obama said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this terrorist attack and the people of France at this difficult time.”
    No mention of Islam. It’s just people shooting people. That is all.

    • See! It’s those damn NRA gun nuts fault!

        I’m surprised he didn’t work in some homily about his non-existent son.

        • Dudley Morris

          “If I had a son, he wouldn’t look at all like those mentally ill gunmen of no particular religious affiliation.”

        How about: “The future must not belong to those that murder in the name of the prophet of Islam”

        That would make more sense.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        It’s like he’s ordering attacks, the sleazy veiled-threat muzzle’em way of threatening people….

    Good news. A “Je suis Charlie” rally is planned in Montreal tonight at 6:30pm, outside 1501 McGill College Avenue (the home of the French consulate in Montreal).

    • How I wish we had one in Toronto, however I fear we are far too multicultural for that.

      • Pete_Brewster

        6pm at the Toronto consulate, 2 Bloor St East, according to Le Monde.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      It should be “Vengez Charlie” and not “Je suis Charlie”.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      I was going to suggest that people start going to mosques, to protest and start picketing there…but I changed my mind.

  • Jay Currie

    Islam is not a religion – it is a political cult. Start there and what to do about these murderous savages and their supporters becomes much clearer. I have some suggestions at my place http://jaycurrie.wordpress.com

    The root cause is we are pretending that Islam is a religion when, in fact it is a political framework for incitement and murder.

    charge the woman who let them in by revealing the pass code .charge her as an accessory after the fact.

    • Exile1981

      The story seems to indicate she let them in because they threatened her as she was entering with her child.

      • That’s what I’ve read too.

        • Exile1981

          Personally I would have refused; not because I want to be a martyr or because I want my child killed but because I would have assumed they would have killed us as soon as I let them in.

          • Linda1000

            She had split seconds to react and unarmed against two rifle-toting gunmen dressed in black, I would have given up the code also. She was out-numbered, out-sized, out – gunned with her daughter by her side. This is exactly why we need, women particularly, to have concealed carry and be able to shoot or hit a target.

          • Exile1981

            I agree with you that we need concealed carry, and I agree it was a split second decision and it will haunt her for the rest of her life; but I think it worked out ok for her but was the wrong decision based on being confronted by the gunmen.

            Now i’d like to know why they let her live when they made a point of executing the other cartoonists. Did they not know she was also one of them or had she never done a cartoon insulting islam?

          • Linda1000

            I question why they let her live also, possibly to take her as hostage or to use as a cover if necessary to escape but decided against it. Maybe we’ll find out eventually. If she hadn’t given them the code, they likely would have just shot the lock off the door to gain entry is my guess?

          • Exile1981

            Depending on the door design, shooting the lock off may not work. I’ve worked at places with some serious electronic locks that a rifle round isn’t going to open on a single shot. If they had too have shot the door lock off, even if they managed it in a single shot, it still would have alerted everyone inside to the presence of the attackers.

            “This is exactly why we need, women particularly, to have concealed carry and be able to shoot or hit a target.”Agree completely. To think I used to believe otherwise. Sometimes wisdom does come with age.

  • Maxsteele

    This is right. The fact that Imam’s, the spiritual leaders of the muslim world, across the Islamic world have been calling out Fatwa’s to kill the people at Charlie Hebdo for years and then two muslim terrorists, armed to the teeth, yelled out Allahu Akbar and celebrated the death of the infidels has absolutely nothing to do with Islam. We need people like Liberal Party Senator Grant Mitchell to tell us all what Islam is about.

  • mobuyus

    Does France not have an army they can send through these no go areas,do a sweep door to door, sewer to sewer.It could be assisted with explosive detecting Hogs.If any collateral damage occurs one could at least say a few words for the poor Swine.

    • jayme

      The issue is you don’t need a passport to travel so not only do they have to worry about France but Germany and Italy as well.

    • Like the police, ambulance drivers and fireman etc they are too afraid to venture into the Banilieues.

  • marty_p

    Toronto Star (and Crescent) seem to be caught between a rock and a hard place – they really want to come out with their “lone wolf…not all Mo’s….religion of peace” arguments – but because this terrorist attack is related to freedom of the press it affects them also – as such it seems that even they are horrified to the point that they are actually telling it like it is and have allowed readers to vent their anger in the comments section – without deleting comments.

    Have a look at the comments:


    This one is my favourite and I can not believe the Star hasn’t deleted it:

    Steve M

    Gee lone wolves gain. Just now on CTV the attackers in Paris were called”lone wolves”. But not to worry the Star lull us all back to sleep. Tomorrow, we will get more stories about how wonderful Islam and all Muslims really are peaceful and wonderful, and how so terrible badly they are treated in Canada, and how ashamed I should be for not believing how wonderful they are.

    I await a flurry of stories by Haroon Siddiqui and others to tell us all how islam and Muslims are never to be blamed for the the carnage. It’s Harper’s fault. Certainly Justin will have little to say, even as he wants to be PM and will inevitably have to deal with such things himself.

  • When does Charlie Hebdo get back up and running?

    The Jews gave the Nazis the middle finger by surviving. The French should also give these losers the middle finger.

    • Conservative American Voter

      they should use that invention dating back to the French Revolution by Dr. Guillotine…

      • The French DO have a flare.

      • Clausewitz

        No the Guillotine was invented in order to make death less painful, quick, and clean. These bastards should be tortured to death. Make them rat on everyone of their known associates and then rinse and repeat. It’s time for civilization to out barbarian the barbarians.

        • Conservative American Voter

          that would be the Vlad-the-Impaler method…different culture and more “front line” back in the day…
