Charlie-Hebdo-Cartoon

PARIS, France — On Wednesday, 12 people were killed and 11 more were wounded at Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine in Paris, France. The gunmen managed to shoot their way through multiple encounters with police.

Heavily armed Islamic terrorists shouting “Allahu Akbar” stormed the Paris magazine headquarters killing journalists and police officers in an attack that brought more than 100,000 protesters onto streets across France.

Why were they killed? Because a satiric French paper published offensive cartoons about Islam’s prophet Muhammad. Yes, cartoons. They ‘offended’ Islamic terrorists, so these barbaric scum chose to do what they do, which is to murder innocent lives for their beloved Muhammad.

The suspects screamed “we have avenged the prophet, we have killed Charlie Hebdo,” according to some witnesses.

The journalists were in an editorial meeting at the time of the attack when masked gunmen stormed in and started shooting. They initially shot and killed eight journalists, including some of France’s best-known cartoonists, a security guard and a visitor. One person survived by hiding under a table.

WARNING: Extremely Graphic Video

Video below shows the murder of a French police officer by the gunmen.

Charlie Hebdo was known for publishing controversial cartoons targeting all religions, including Islam and their Prophet Mohammed. They were killed for exercising their freedom of speech as a group of radical terrorists could not take what the scary and insulting cartoons were expressing.

Many media outlets have refused to air or publish any of these cartoons. Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and NBC, all decided not to show the offensive cartoons.

This is exactly what these barbarians want. They don’t want them to be published and they killed those who chose to utilize their freedom of expression.

Here are some of the cartoons that happened to ‘insult‘ Islamic terrorists:

In a video published on a French website, you can hear the suspects shouting, “Allahu Akbar!” or “Allah is the greatest”.

A statement from President Obama condemned the attack but failed to mention Islam.

I strongly condemn the horrific shooting at the offices of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris that has reportedly killed 12 people,” Obama said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this terrorist attack and the people of France at this difficult time. France is America’s oldest ally, and has stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States in the fight against terrorists who threaten our shared security and the world.

The men responsible for the Paris massacre Chérif Kouachi, 32, and his brother Said, 34 were killed by French Police in a terror raid on Friday. The youngest of the three, Hamyd Mourad, 18, surrendered to police at Charleville-Mézières, about 50 miles northeast of Reims in Champagne on Wednesday.

The Kouachi brothers had taken several hostages at a Jewish grocery store in eastern Paris on Friday.

French police took out Cherif and Said Kouachi and a suspect in a policewoman’s killing, but also left four hostages dead, according to authorities and reports from the scene.

French police released mugshots of the other man involved at the store, Amedy Coulibaly, 32, as well as a woman named as 26-year-old Hayat Boumeddiene, also wanted over the shooting of the policewoman.

Police identified Hayat Boumeddiene and Amedy Coulibaly as the suspects in the grocery store hostage situation in Paris. Coulibaly was killed by police, while Boumeddiene is reportedly unaccounted for.

U.S. intelligence officials believe Said Kouachi trained in Yemen for a few months in 2011 with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, Al Qaeda’s franchise organization there, according to a U.S. counter-terrorism official.

Cherif Kouachi was arrested in 2005 by French authorities and convicted in a French court in 2008 of trying to help smuggle fighters to Iraq. The brothers were linked to a plot in 2010 to free an Algerian militant from jail but neither one was prosecuted in the case, the official said.

There are now reports that the brothers had been on a US terror watch list “for years”.

A member of Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen said the group directed the massacre at Charlie Hebdo. The Al Qaeda member on Friday provided a statement in English to The Associated Press saying “the leadership of AQAP directed the operations and they have chosen their target carefully.”

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. – French President Francois Hollande

The victims from this deadly attack were eight journalists, including the magazine’s chief editor, Stephane Charbonnier (Charb), two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor.

Social media users have been expressing their solidarity with the people of France since the attack on Charlie Hebdo. Shortly after the violence, #JeSuisCharlie or #IAmCharlie began to trend worldwide.

The words of Charlie Hebdo’s editor-in-chief and beloved illustrator “Charb”:

‘‘I am not afraid of reprisals. I don’t have kids, I don’t have a wife, I don’t have a car, I don’t have credit. This may sound a bit pompous but I would prefer to die standing than to live on my knees.’’

There can be no compromising on freedom of speech. Charb and his fellow cartoonists lived by that. They fought for what they believed in. They died for not backing down, but they never wavered nor waved a white flag.

Rest in peace brave souls, rest in peace.

Now, we stand and proudly say #JeSuisCharlie.

    A quick and shocking reminder that, as an integrated part of the
    Christian faith, you cannot mock/offend Jesus more than what he already has experienced.
    He was insulted, cursed as a demon, spat upon, struck in the face, whipped, and
    finally executed as a criminal .… all willingly endured because it was the
    only way to save me and you from the Evil we have chosen to adopt.

    It is also a reminder that Jesus calls whoever chooses to follow him to
    have the same love and sympathy for ALL human neighbors, anyway regardless of
    their ideologies and behavior towards others including you* (practical tips
    below).

    And a final reminder that “A servant is not greater than his master. If
    they persecuted me, they will persecute you also”. John 15:20.

    Imagine Jesus not Muhammad in the comic, and then ask yourself. Are you still Charlie?

    • It’s about Free Speech. Period. Besides, if it were Jesus who is made fun of quite often actually, I would not be showing up to murder those who did the slandering. Big difference.

    I don’t support terrorism, but nor do I support people satirizing other religions or races. They are both terrible things, and cannot be justified. This is the end result of such actions. Its obvious that the incident in Paris is a great tragedy. But I suppose this is a lesson for everyone to try to be more respectful toward one another.
