Islamist barbarians have struck again, as 3 gunmen went on a killing spree, murdering 10 journalists, 2 police officers and injuring 7 people in the name of Allah.
Gunmen have attacked the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and injuring seven in an apparent Islamist attack.
At least two masked attackers opened fire with assault rifles in the office and exchanged shots with police in the street outside before escaping by car.
The gunmen shouted “we have avenged the Prophet Muhammad”, witnesses say
Barbaric, primitive religious fanatics and those so-called moderates, who feign disgust at these atrocities but still spew passages from their Holy books to justify atrocities, need brain transplants!
This is another blatant attack on Freedom of Expression by these barbaric religious fanatics.
It was also reported that 2 of the cartoonists killed had personal body guards because there has been ongoing life threatening messages from Islamists who feel offended by the cartoons the Newspaper published.
Imagine what it is like to be under constant fear for your life for exercising your Freedom of Expression.
I am so tired of hearing the rhetoric that people should not upset the religious community. Why should we care that religious people are offended that we mock their Skydaddy. If we are free to mock Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman, why should we not be free to mock Allah? There is as much evidence for the existence of Allah and the mysterious powers he possess as there is for Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman!
In this time and age, there should be a resounding message from all civilised countries that such acts of intimidation and terrorism will not be tolerated. The world needs to come together to take action anywhere such acts of terrorism rears its ugly head.
President Hollande has condemned it as an act of “extreme barbarity”
UK Prime Minister David Cameron sent out a tweet to condemn the atrocity
The murders in Paris are sickening. We stand with the French people in the fight against terror and defending the freedom of the press.
President Barack Obama went a step further and offered help to bring the attackers to justice
US President Barack Obama has condemned the “horrific shooting”, offering to provide any assistance needed “to help bring these terrorists to justice”. Obama said in a statement that the U.S. would provide “any assistance” to “America’s oldest ally” in bringing the terrorists to justice.
So far, the death toll include the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Stephane Charbonnier, and three cartoonists Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski
It is very appalling. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims.
We must come together to haunt this criminals down! We need to stand up and refused to be intimidated by their primitive tactics.
As a friend suggested:
all the world press should stand together and reproduce the images that these murdering bastards found so offensive… United we stand!!!
It would be a great idea to widely reproduce the images these barbarians killed people for. The world needs to say NO to this intimidation by these barbaric, bloodthirsty religious fanatics!
As I said in an earlier post aptly titled Islam deserves no respect from me:
No religion deserves respect from me. However, when in this modern age, a particular religion is always grabbing the headlines when its adherents kidnap and open fire on innocent people in shopping malls and cafes while screaming, “There is no other God but Allah”, and murder children for simply daring to seek an education, I can say, Islam deserves nothing but contempt. My heart bleeds for all the innocent lives lost in the latest atrocities committed in the name of religion and a mythical skydaddy.
No lie or myths sold as truth deserves respect and all religions are myths and lies. However, when lies are used as brainwashing tool to harm innocent people and cause havoc in the society, that lie deserves nothing but contempt and condemnation from decent people.
It is not just about the fanatics who chose to carry out the commands in their sacred ‘holy book’. It must also be about people who defend the Quran or the Bible simply because they consider religion beyond criticism and cherry pick their holy book to suits their purpose.
When a religion provides a hiding place for bad people to commit atrocities, that religion deserves no respect. Religion is an instrument of oppression, useful in the hands of the rulers. Religion easily provides an excuse for evil people to carry out deluded activities, however, an excuse for evil is itself evil.
