When I heard about the deadly attack on Charlie Hebdo Paris’ office in France today, which left 12 people dead and 20 wounded, my first thought was the terrorists have crossed a line and have now put good, innocent Muslims in that country at risk as anti-Muslim sentiment surges.
I think the attack may be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, and that ordinary citizens fed up with cowardly attacks around the world by Muslim fanatics will now start launching attacks of their own — on Muslims in their places of worship and businesses, and on the street.
Indeed, I remember how so many French citizens took to the streets to protest against same-sex marriage, and how some of them resorted to violence by beating up gay people and in one case murdered a young gay man.
It is no stretch of the imagination to think that some French citizens will seek revenge on Muslims — any Muslims — after today’s attack, even though neither ISIS nor Al-Qaida may be directly responsible.
A new Pandora’s box has been opened, and everybody should be concerned. There is no way of knowing how it will all end, but one thing is for sure: many innocent lives will be lost before all the murderous fanatics are locked up or killed.
I just had a Jewish friend on the line who claimed non-stop that all muslims were guilty about today’s terrible event.Therefore I think your blog is refreshing and just, showing the other side of the story. We must also be concerned about the future killings of innocent people…Thank you!
There are much more sinister forces in play here. Think: If America had not left Iraq in such a mess. And we all know who runs America. Nonetheless, “the common man” will always bear the insanity of the political and military masters no matter who and where they exist. This is fact sad as it is
Indeed, my thoughts were for the many Muslims in France who would be at risk. We need to separate these criminals from the followers of Islam. They are two very separate groups.
