Yes. I think we should have a "castrate" button and a "spank" button.

Maybe a "heavy petting" button, too?

Conflating French-born Muslims in Paris with Boko Haram and the oppressive state of Saudi Arabia is as idiotic as the terrorists' conflating of Jewish bakers in Paris with Mossad and the IDF.
Aren't they all voluntary members of the same Islamic club franchise? Don't they all try their best to follow the same perfect book, life and teachings of the same perfect prophet?

Don't talk cock. There's 1.3 billion of the buggers. If you expect more than a billion people to all think and act the same, then you're more daft than they are.

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

A very impressive video shot by an amateur in porte de Vincennes showing the GIGN attack on the kosher grocery. We can distinctively see bodies on the ground before the attack and the terrorist storming out of the shop with weapons in his hands. Warning graphic violence.

To be fair, I think some of them just happen to be sitting there thinking, "WTF have I been born into, and how do I survive through this?". So will just keep quiet hoping not to be noticed.

I know which is why I say the book is not perfect as a perfect book from sky God would have no room for misinterpretation.

Almost 2 billion

Off course they don't think alike because if they all started following the perfect book properly then we would be in lot more trouble.

Explosives found inside the kosher grocery store in porte de Vincennes (source BFMTV).

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

I stopped watching on way home from work .. But just seen a few minutes of 'Euro News' saying that a second terrorist, unknown male or female (the one in the pictures) escaped through a back door of the kosher shop??

For real ?? The cops seemed to do an amazing job but somebody escaped through a back door??

Yes, basic problem with dealing with terrorists is they all have different agendas.
Near where I live there is a big Wasserkraftwerk (an electric power station driven by currents in the river). You would think this would make the "greens" very happy, no nasty fuel burning, no CO2 produced.
But no, there is a big "green" group that want to close the power station and "return to nature"

No, just kneecapping as usual.

Dare I mention inspector Clouseau again
From what I saw of the TV coverage they had far, far too many police at each location. How you could properly control and administer such a very huge group and ensure they work together is impossible

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

30 Jewish shoppers were hiding in the freezer for 5 hours?

I find it truly shocking if this wanted woman was in the shop and escaped? Don't police round up everyone including hostages to be sure and get the full story?

Unless they let her escape to secretly track her and see where she leads them.

The numbers were indeed mental .. I heard one number today of 80k heavily armed cops.
Imagine similar happened in the UK. All the cops in high vis yellow jackets with pepper spray at the ready

Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

The vitriolic, racist anti Muslim and generally anti-immigration comments on French FB and Twitter are massively shocking- despite the tragic circumstances.

In the meantime:

French imams condemned violence committed in the name of Islam during Friday prayers as the country reeled from the double hostage dramas that followed the massacre at Charlie Hebdo magazine, AFP reports. The same message - distancing the country's five million Muslims from the jihadists responsible for the attacks - was relayed at more than 2,300 mosques across France.
"We denounce the odious crimes committed by the terrorists, whose criminal action endangers our willingness to live together," said the rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur.
He also appealed to "all the Muslims of France" to take part in demonstrations planned for Sunday to pay homage to the 12 victims of the attack on Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, the bloodiest in France in more than half a century.
