Islamic Terrorists Attacked Paris

Islamic State launches social media campaign to capitalize on Paris attacksAt 11:30 the morning on January 7, 2015, Paris, France suffered a bloody and deadly attack by Islamic terrorists, the worst since 1961. Two Islamic terrorist brothers, Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34, penetrated the building of the satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo and opened fire. They killed eight journalists, a maintenance worker, a visitor, and two police officers. The terrorists also injured 11 people, four of them critically. A third suspect, Mourad Hamyd, 18, turned himself in at a police station after hearing his name being associated to the terrorist attacks. Hamyd´s relationship to the Kouachi brothers is not yet known.

Once inside the building, the Islamic terrorist brothers headed straight to Stephane Charbonnier, killing him and his police bodyguard first while shouting “Allahu akbar!” as they fired. Charbonnier had stated earlier the following regarding death threats against him and the newspaper: “I rather die standing than live on my knees.” The assassins then called out the names of other employees. Witnesses stated that the Islamic terrorist assassins claimed allegiance to al-Qaida in Yemen.

This well-known satirical newspaper had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad. Charlie Hebdo is a publication that satirizes many religions and political figures, including Islam. This weekly newspaper was firebombed a few years ago for publishing cartoons that made fun of the prophet of Islam. The Quran prohibits any drawing of Prophet Muhammad. In many Islamic countries to make fun or to blaspheme the prophet of Islam carries the punishment of the death penalty.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the two Islamic terrorist brothers, Cherif and Said Kouachi, who were born in Paris and are of Algerian descent, were known to the intelligence services of France. One of the two brothers, Cherif Kouachi, was convicted of terrorism in 2008 for having ties to a terrorist network that sends Islamic jihadist fighters to Iraq.

The police tracked down the identities of the brothers because one left his identification card behind in a getaway. French police said in a bulletin that the two terrorists were “armed and dangerous.” Charlie Hebdo´s editor, Stephane Charbonnier, one of those assassinated had been threatened in a 2013 edition of the al-Qaida magazine Inspire. A caricature of the Islamic State’s leader was the last tweet sent out by the satirical newspaper, a few minutes before the deadly attack.

French President François Hollande stated the following: “France has been struck directly in the heart of its capital, in a place where the spirit of liberty – and thus of resistance – breathed freely.” This was France’s worst terrorist attack in decades. At noon, the Paris metro came to a standstill and a crowd remained silent near Notre Dame Cathedral to honor victims.

France’s prime minister said the possibility of a new attack “is our main concern” and announced several overnight arrests. Tensions ran high in Paris. Additional police officers patrolled schools, religious places, and public transportation, including the Metro subways from Paris. Thousands of French security forces were immediately mobilized. Great Britain increased security imports and throughout the nation.

The Islamic terrorists attack against the newspaper was also an attack against freedom of speech and the press. This assault brought a large response throughout the world, from Berlin, to London, to Rome, to New York City to Bangkok. Thousands of people filled squares and streets demonstrating for various days while holding up pens to protect the right to freedom of speech.

Kai Diekmann, editor in chief of Bild, Germany’s largest selling daily stated the following: “The only thing we can do is to live fearlessly. Our colleagues in Paris have paid the ultimate price for freedom. We bow before them.”

Fears have run high in France and other European countries, as well as in the United States, Canada, and other nations. Many countries fear that jihadis trained to fight by the Islamic State or other terrorist groups in the Middle East would return to conduct attacks at home. The Western countries are on high alert suspecting more Islamic terrorist attacks.

Mourners gathered during a rally in support of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical weekly newspaper, since 12 individuals died and many injured in the Islamic terrorist attack. A large crowd demonstrated to support freedom of speech and freedom of the press at Union Square in New York City.

 

France has suffered previous terrorist attacks as well as other European countries. In 2014, a deadly attack took place on a Jewish museum in Belgium. The Islamic terrorist had returned from fighting with extremists in Syria. The terrorist, who killed three soldiers and four people at a Jewish school in Toulouse in 2012, had received paramilitary training in Pakistan. France has more than 500,000 Jews. After the three days of terror, the French government has mobilized 10,000 soldiers to protect the 717 Jewish schools in the nation. Both al-Qaida-affiliated terrorist organizations and the Islamic State have repeatedly threatened to attack France for engaging in airstrikes against Islamic terrorists in Iraq and fighting Islamic jihadists in Africa.

Sean Hannity wrote an article entitled “Paris Terror Tests Values” on his website on January 8, 2014. He wrote the following: “In the wake of the horrific terrorist attack in Paris at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists, our values and policies related to free speech and security are once again being challenged. Will the United States and the world stand up against violent extremism?”
Hannity said that Republican Senator Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, told National Journal, the following: “To me, Congress having oversight certainly is important, but what is more important relative to these types of events is ensuring we don’t overly hamstring the National Security Agency’s ability to collect this kind of information in advance and keep these kinds of activities from occurring.” Republican Senator Lindsey Graham also expressed concern that our intelligence capabilities are under attack and could potentially hinder our ability to prevent this type of attack in America.

France and many European Western countries have allowed millions of Muslims to move into their nations. Many of these immigrants have arrived illegally over the years. The Muslim population is rapidly growing throughout Europe and is now estimated to be more than 50 million. France has 6.5 million Muslims, which represents 8% of the total population in this nation.

Recently, University of San Diego estimated that at least 25% of the European population will be Muslim in the next 12 years. And some experts estimated that by the end of the century there will be a majority Muslim population in Europe.

Similar to other European countries, France has allowed the spread of no go zones in many of its cities. In these no go zones non-Muslims do not enter, Shariah law is being implemented, and schools and mosques teach radical Islam and death to infidels.

There are practically thousands mosques in these areas, often with Imams who follow the strict interpretation of the Quran. Many of these Imams preach hatred against the infidels. They preach that the infidels must be converted to Islam and that, if they refuse, they can be killed or enslaved. Astoundingly, there are 751 semi-autonomous enclaves in France where French law and customs are not being followed or accepted.

France and other European countries have made a great mistake by allowing so many self-rule and semi-autonomous enclaves. Muslim immigrants come as colonizers and not as immigrants who want to integrate to and assimilate into the European culture with its laws, customs, and way of life.

Muslim men treat women as second class citizens. Non-Muslim individuals fear entering these no go zones, even the police. These Islamic immigrants and their children born in European nations do not integrate into their societies. Muslim population keeps growing rapidly and Islamic radicals want to convert all Europeans to Islam and implant Shariah law on all.

Three terrorists who seized hostages at separate locations and ignited fear across France were killed on Friday January 9, 2015 along with three of their hostages as the gunmen clashed with thousands of French security forces.

French Security forces killed the three Islamic terrorists
On January 9, 2015, the two al-Qaida-linked Islamic terrorist brothers who killed 12 and injured many during the attack of the headquarters of the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper came out of their hideaway firing their weapons. Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Said Kouachi, 34, were killed in a shootout and their hostage was freed. Cherif Kouachi was convicted of terrorism charges in 2008 for ties to a network that was sending jihadis to fight U.S. forces in Iraq. A Yemeni security official said that Said Kouachi is suspected of having fought for al-Qaida in Yemen. Another senior security official said that Said was in Yemen until 2012. While in Yemen, this terrorist had contact with Anwar al Awalaki, the U.S.-born radical jihadist Iman who was killed by a U.S. drone..

On January 9, 2015, Islamic terrorist Amedy Coulibaly took at least five people hostage at a kosher grocery in Paris. He died in a nearly simultaneous raid there. He killed four hostages at the grocery. Hayat Boumeddiene, the companion of Amedy Coulibaly, who police listed as an accomplice and was being sought, flew to Turkey on her way to Syria.

Security forces stormed the Paris grocery minutes after their counterparts assaulted the printing plant in the northeast area of Paris where two brothers involved in the killings in the Charlie Hebdo were hiding. At the kosher grocery near the Porte de Vincennes neighborhood in Paris, the Islamic terrorist Amedy Coulibaly had stormed in shooting just a few hours before the Jewish Sabbath began. Several people were wounded when the gunman opened fire in the kosher grocery, others were able to flee and get medical care.

The attack came before sundown when the store would have been crowded with shoppers. Amedy Coulibaly was responsible for the roadside killing of a Paris policewoman the day before.

More than 45 world leaders, except Obama, participated in the Paris march of solidarity and unity

President Barack Obama shamefully did not participate in the march of solidarity and unity in Paris on Sunday January 11, 2015. Obama did not send the vice president or any other cabinet officers to the march either. Not even Attorney General Eric Holder, who was already in Paris participating in a meeting on terrorism. Holder flew back to Washington on the very day of the march. The absence of Obama, Biden, and any other cabinet officer was considered as an insult to the French and other Europeans. Obama has now become the “Ugly American” of Europe.

On January 12, 2015, Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted that the White House made a mistake at a press conference by saying, “We should have sent someone with a higher profile than the U.S. ambassador to France.” Earnest would not answer where President Obama was on Sunday. On this same day, the New York Daily News stated on its front cover “You let the world down.” Indeed, president Obama, you did!

Obama sent cabinet officers to the funeral of African American Michael Brown to Ferguson, who was shot dead for attacking a police officer, but not to Paris! Obama did not send a cabinet officer either to the funeral of an Army general killed in Kabul. Obama did not attend the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, thus insulting America´s oldest and most faithful ally. His priories are upside down and his values are completely different from freedom-loving Americans.

Roger Aronoff wrote an article entitled “Why Did President Obama Stay Away From Paris This Weekend?” which was published in Accuracy in Media on January 12, 2015. Aronoff wrote the following: “In case you were wondering why President Barack Obama, or Vice President Joe Biden, or Secretary of State John Kerry weren’t in Paris for the unity rally against terrorism on Sunday, so were a lot of other people”. The reporter said that The New York Daily News ran a headline on the front page, along with this article, headlined “Eric Holder, top U.S. officials no-shows at Paris unity rally.” Aronoff pointed out that, according the Washington Examiner, “A search of the White House website reveals that Obama had nothing scheduled for Sunday, so the administration cannot say Obama had a scheduling conflict.”

Roger Aronoff reminded us the following: “The person that the White House did send was Ambassador Jane Hartley, who The Washington Post described as a “bundler” who “raised at least $500,000 for Obama in 2012.” Her reward was becoming Ambassador to France. Not bad.”

What an inappropriate appointment to such an important post such as France in the age of Islamic terrorism! Of course, this is not an isolated case. Many Obama’s appointees have been incompetent campaign donors, Marxists, and members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

you let the world down
Aronoff concluded his article by saying the following: “The White House hasn’t specifically answered the question, but it may be that President Obama doesn’t want to associate himself with the views of the French prime minister who declared that France was at war with radical Islam. Obama has repeatedly avoided saying that… refuses to tell the truth, or perhaps to face the truth. The administration, along with most of our media, refuse to acknowledge the clear link between jihadist, Islamic ideology and the spate of terrorism and other brutal attacks perpetrated in the name of Islam. I cited numerous examples in my recent column titled Paris—The Latest Example of Jihadist Islamic Terrorism”.

Obama, it makes no sense to not declare war against radical Islam when it has been at war against us for many years. Is it because your brother, Malik Obama, supports Hamas financially, and works with Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Sudan? Is it because both of you sympathize strongly with radical Islam?

Liz Alderman and Dan Bilefsky wrote an article titled “Huge Show of Solidarity in Paris Against Terrorism, which was published in the New York Times on January 11, 2015. The reporters explained that more than a million people joined over 40 presidents and prime ministers on the streets of Paris on Sunday to show solidarity in the West against the threat of Islamic extremism since the September 11 attacks.

The Interior Ministry reported that the demonstration was the largest in modern French history, 1.6 million people in Paris and almost four million in the nation. Many waved the tricolor French flag, carried pens in raised fists to commemorate those killed in the Islamic terrorist attack at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo as well as four others assassinated at a Jewish supermarket. Ten of thousands raised black and white signs bearing three words that have become famous through social media as a slogan of unity and defiance: “Je suis Charlie” or “I am Charlie.” At various times, those in attendance sang La Marseillaise, the national anthem.

The world leaders—including President François Hollande of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, President Mariano Rajoy of Spain, President Petro Poroshenko of Poland, King Abdallah and Queen Rania of Jordan, President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, and Prime Minister David Cameron of Great Britain—joined the march in a solemn line. They marched slowly, clasping arms to show solidarity with the victims.

Earlier in the day the French Interior Ministry held a security summit meeting, bringing together top intelligence and law enforcement officials from across Europe and North America to discuss ways to prevent terrorism. Attorney General Eric Holder attended the meeting and announced that the White House would convene an international forum on February 18, 2015 to discuss new means of countering terrorism. The White House, in a statement, said the meeting would address domestic and international measures “to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence.”

One more time, the White House refused to use the term “Islamic terrorism.” As stated earlier, it was inexplicable why Holder did not participate in the unity march. The United States was represented by its ambassador to France, Jane D. Hartley.

The reporters wrote that Le Soir had also published cartoons from Charlie Hebdo. Since the attack on Charlie Hebdo, both Netanyahu and Abbas have repeatedly condemned Islamic extremism and expressed solidarity with the French.

Egyptian PresidentEgyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi’s remarkable speech on Islam saying that the Muslim worlds need to revolutionize their laws

Raymond Ibrahim wrote an article entitled “A ground breaking speech—but ignored—on Islam” which was published in on January 12, 2015. Ibrahim wrote that President Sisi made a speech celebrating the birth of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. In the audience were the nation’s top Islamic authority from among the Awqaf Ministry (religious endowments) and Al Azhar University. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi stated the following: “It’s inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma [Islamic world] to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world. Impossible!”

On New Year’s Day 2015, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi made some remarkable comments concerning the need for a “religious revolution.”

0The reporter said the following: “What a refreshingly honest statement to come from not only a political leader but a Muslim political leader who has much to lose, not least his life! Contrast his very true words with the habitual reassurances of the Western establishment that Islamic world violence and intolerance is a product of anything and everything but Islam. Even after the appearance of the head-chopping, infidel-crucifying Islamic State, politicians like U.S. President Obama and U.K. Prime Minister Cameron insisted that the caliphate is not Islamic, despite all the evidence otherwise. Yet here is Sisi, the pious Muslim, saying that the majority of the terrorism plaguing the world today is related to the holy texts of Islam themselves.”

Ibrahim explained that al Sissi pointed out that as a Muslim he will not say that Islam, the “religion,” is responsible for “antagonizing the entire world.” He certainly goes much further than his Western counterparts when he says that this “thinking” is rooted in an Islamic “corpus of texts and ideas” which has become so “sacralized.”

Obama and Western leaders keep repeating that Islam is a religion of peace and that Islamic terrorists are seen as mere “criminals” and their practice of terrorism as “crimes” without mention of any Islamic text or ideology driving them. Ibrahim said the following: “Egyptian President al Sissi further invoked the classical Islamic teaching—the “thinking”—that divides the world into two warring halves: the Muslim world (or in Islamic/Arabic parlance, Dar al-Islam) which must forever be in a struggle with the rest of the world (or Dar al-Harb, the “abode of war”) till, in the Koran’s words, all religion belongs to Allah (Koran 8:39).”

President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi asked the following: “Is it possible that 1.6 billion people should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live?” He made another important point by indicating that Western leaders and media habitually lie by affirming that Islamic “thinking” is “antagonizing the entire world.” Al-Sissi then said that “this umma is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.”

The reporter stated the following: “In other words, Islamic terrorism and chaos is not a product of grievance, territorial disputes, colonialism, Israel, offensive cartoons, or anything else the West points to. It’s a product of their own hands. Again, one must appreciate how refreshing it is for a top political leader in the heart of the Islamic world to make such candid admissions that his Western counterparts dare not even think let alone speak. And bear in mind, Sisi has much to lose as opposed to Western politicians. Calls by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists that he is an apostate are sure to grow more aggressive now.”

President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi stated the following: “I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I say it again, the entire world is waiting for your next move…. I am saying these words here at Al Azhar, before this assembly of scholars and ulema—Allah Almighty be witness to your truth on Judgment Day concerning that which I’m talking about now.”

The United States Central Command was hacked by ISIS supporters

The Twitter account and the YouTube channel of the U.S. Central Command — which controls all U.S. troops in the Middle East and south Asia — were hijacked on January 12, 2015 by hackers allegedly from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The cyber-attack came as President Obama was at the Federal Trade Commission announcing that he was going to ask Congress for new legislation to improve cyber security.

The Pentagon issued the following statement “We can confirm that the CENTCOM Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised earlier today. We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter. We have no further information to provide at this time. On Twitter, the hackers posted a message: “AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, and WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS,” and then posted rosters of what appeared to be a list of home addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of retired U.S. Army generals with slides of intelligence collection priorities in China and possible war scenarios on the Korean peninsula.”

Hackers also posted pro-jihadi videos on the command’s YouTube account. Both accounts were deactivated within hours of being compromised. The Pentagon receives four million cyber-attacks each day.

The day before Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, General Martin Dempsey told Fox News’ Chris Wallace that he was concerned about U.S. cyber vulnerabilities, which persist despite a years-long effort to curb them. “We don’t have an advantage,” Dempsey said. “It’s a level playing field. And that makes this chairman very uncomfortable.”

Conclusion

The Islamic terrorist attacks last week in Paris left 17 dead and many injured. There are many lessons to be learned from this terrible tragedy. First, France and European countries need to stop the incomprehensible policy of allowing the establishment of no go zones, which are semi-autonomous enclaves where radical Muslims ignore French law and customs and imposed sharia law. Even police officers do not enter these enclaves where Muslim men mistreat their wives and young Muslims are brainwashed by the radical Imams in their thousands of mosques to hate the infidels.

Charlie Hebdo

The growing population of Muslims throughout Europe is enough reason to stop these policies. European countries need to stop Muslim illegal immigration into Europe, particularly when they act as colonizers and not as immigrants willing to integrate into the culture and the laws of European countries.

Barack Obama behaved appallingly by not attending the mass rally in Paris with more than 45 world leaders on Sunday. At the very least, the President should have sent Vice President Joe Biden or a high-ranking cabinet officer. Europe feels abandoned by this President who seems to care very little about the fate of that continent and is now is seen as “an Ugly American.” Barack Obama gave a slap on the face to our European, Middle Eastern and African allies. This incident shows one more time that the president is unfit to be our commander-in-chief and that of allies do not trust him.

Part of the reason is that he is a hidden radical Muslim and does not want to participate in the unity march against radical Islam and in defense of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and the freedom of speech of European countries. It is no wonder that he said to the United Nations, “the world does not belong to those that blaspheme the prophet of Islam.”

The news media in the United States hardly reported the excellent speech given by the President of Egypt, where he asked the Muslim world to revolutionize its religion. Barack Obama and other Western leaders keep saying that Islam is a peaceful religion. Yet, the Egyptian president said or implied that Muslims need to look into their religion that seems to bring so much violence throughout the world. He asked a very simple question: Is it possible that 1.6 billion people should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live?”

The hacking of the United States Central Command by Isis sympathizers shows that we could have a Pearl Harbor-type cyber-attacked at any moment. The United States needs to spend more money to defend our national security for the cyber-attacks that have penetrated our industries and stolen military secrets.

Due to the incompetence and ideology of this president, the national security of United States remains at risk. Our beloved country could suffer a seriously devastating attack in the near future. Lets pray to God to protect our beloved nation.
