Al Qaeda has hit the West in its back garden, while we at ISIS have been attacking our own sheikhs. — ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed Aladnana

They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me. Then they will have my dead body, but not my obedience. — Gandhi

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it. — Voltaire

If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. ― George Orwell

Two possibly three gunmen walked into the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo and carried out a massacre. Twelve killed, many injured.

ISIS has called upon its followers in the West to carry out revenge killings. This though does not appear to be carried out by amateurs, too professional, more likely battle-hardened ISIS fighters returning to France.

The rounds fired into a police car, were closely spaced, the work of a professional.

They also seemed to be well informed, or lucky. They got into a secure building, at a time an editorial conference was taking place.

Sick trolls are having a field day, tweeting racist and inflammatory tweets, which only serve to worsen the situation.

The one thing we do not wish to see, is Muslims being targeted, but that is not to say, a clampdown on religious fanatics who are stirring up hatred (and that includes vile trolls).

We are seeing a failure of immigration policy, or the lack thereof. Both France and England, have large numbers of disaffected young Muslims, ideal recruiting grounds for ISIS.

Muslim schools should not be permitted. This is the West, tolerant yes, but Islam is not a religion of the West. If they wish to go to Muslim schools, then live in a Muslim country. Cannot have it both ways.

Freedom to practise a religion, provided it does not impinge on the freedoms of others, is not the right to impose your religion on the rest of society.

Islamists have scored a massive own goal. But to be honest I do not think they will care as they do not care what we in the West think of them. All they wish to do is bastardise women and see the Black flag of Islam flying across Europe.

Sony showed cowardice when they were hacked, pulled a rubbish film. The French have taken to the streets to show solidarity that they will not be intimidated by Jihadists (assuming that is who it was).
