    Yes, I am. That's probably it then. They were exceedingly careful the whole time on the French channel stressing repeatedly that the info was very unreliable at that point and that nothing was officially confirmed. They just had the Minister of the Interior on a few minutes ago and he was directly asked for official figures on the number of casualties. He said that he did not have anything official yet and that he would only provide that info once he was 100% sure it was accurate. Maybe Hollande will have more to say later during his live adress.

    Damn, they took out more innocents. Time the whole world takes action. If "moderate" muslims don't stand up, and RISE up, then they're not part of the solution, they're part of the problem. Let your voice be heard or it will be silenced.

    Unfortunately, that's not what will happen.

    The woman wanted in connection with the recent terrorist shootings in Paris apparently left France on 2 January. Unofficial sources say Hayat Boumeddiene flew to Turkey and then crossed the Turkish border into Syria. Turkish authorities have refused to comment. Before he was killed by police, the boyfriend of Ms Boumeddiene - Amedy Coulibaly - told French news channel BFM TV that the attacks were conducted on behalf of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

    Never understood why Muslims are unique in the world in being responsible for policing the activity of their coreligionists. (when were Christians held accountable for the KKK, the Ustasha, or the Falange (of either the Spanish or Lebanese variety) What exactly are they supposed to be doing?

    And no that's not to say that one justifies the other, merely that this bizarre notion that the community as a whole is responsible for regulating the actions of a tiny minority of its members is not applied in any other case. If anything it would make more sense in cases related to Catholicism, which has more of a unitary structure.

    Lastly, shooting people for drawing a cartoon is bad.
