    I pretty much predicted that Paris would be a target in a drunk new year discussion of upcoming events. Berlin and London, can't be far away.

    "France 24 TV is showing amateur footage apparently of the gunmen firing outside the building, running over to a person lying on the pavement and shooting at them while shouting slogans before getting into a car and driving off."

    Looks a different ball game to the one man loons we've had popping up around the world. These boys were/are pro. Most likely still armed to fuck with a bag of decent explosives as well, so this story is far from over.

    Fuck being a Muslim right now.

    there is footage of the gunmen shooting a police officer then going over to him and shooting him with his hands up at close range. wish i could unsee that tbh.

    this will only serve to radicalise the french public at large. the impact will be huge; who knows what will happen in the coming hours and days...

    Wierdly I quite want to see that, but I'm not going to seek it out. Plant flowers not weeds and all that.

    This might be premature but I'm worried about the consequences in France's political landscape. That harpy Le Pen is going to have a field day with this until the next elections.

    I see a few of those killed were quite well known in France and with the idea of an attack against freedom, it draws a dark veil over the French position in the currently grubby world climate. I doubt they'll follow the Australian method of flowers and caring.

    Are they like a French Private Eye? I wonder how worried Ian Hislop is right now.

    I've seen it and without wanting to be disrespectful, it looks as if the bullet misses him. (there's no gore/blood which would be impossible from the range and the weaponary involved) I doubt he died from the apparent headshot if he did at all.

    Scary stuff indeed though.

    British satire tends not to provoke Islam so much, unlike those on the liberal continent.

    The massacre is a huge tragedy in itself, but I can't bear to watch the impending backlash; Muslims, Middle Easterns and maybe even immigrants at large are in a very perilous position

    Yeah it's fucking terrible isn't it. We can laugh at a young woman dying of cancer. We can laugh at a child's murder. But god forbid we mock a religion! :manson: :manson: :manson: right back at you.

    It's not even mocking a religion (not that I'd hold these scum up as shining examples of Islamic piety) - it's literally the same dog-whistle language used by the likes of Front National and the anti-Islam protesters in Berlin right now.

    It's also the language used by many Muslims to describe Islam. It just seems a little ironic after yet another atrocity committed in it's name no?

    I wouldn't take anything committed in the name of Islam by ISIS any more seriously as a representation of Islam than I take anything committed in the name of Christianity by the Westboro Baptist Church. Every religion has its share of utter cunts who pervert it. I'd have thought the the puffed-up cunts who think they represent Islam because some utter nobody appointed himself Grand Caliph were more of an appropriate target for mocking than the slightly depressing snark at Muslims as a whole.

    This is going to have massive repercussions.

    The Front National may have just won the next election.

    There is a vigil at 7pm on Dam Square in Amsterdam this evening, to show solidarity with France and the victims - I suspect the far right will be massively present.

    It was only yesterday that I was reading that 40% of Dutch mosques have been attacked - arson, racist graffiti etc - in the last 10 years.

    Things are going to get worse.

    I shudder.

    And arson attacks on at least 5 Swedish mosques over the holiday.

    That One, your statement is wrong, because the people who perpetrate these attacks, and groups like ISIS, also see their fellow Muslims as targets of violence and murder. If we dare to disagree, we are deserving of the same fate. And its the reason why more Muslims have died at the hands of 'Islamist terror' than anyone else. So at that point, with their logic, your statement is far beyond a critique of a religion. Your statement just doesn't get it. Its not like Islam mandates Muslims to kill other Muslims that disagree - so at some point, its gotta be something else, or something more than just Islam.

    I took my class to the largest mosque in Western Europe today! It was fascinating. Sad day.

    Terrible terrible news on every level.
    And yes, Marine Le Pen is probably going to be the first French female president...

    Marine Le Pen can't even win a bloody seat, let alone the presidency. She'll get to the second round (if Hollande runs again) then she'll get slaughtered by Sarkozy.

    The French system's pretty good in that regard - because everything goes to a second round if nobody cleared 50% in the first round, they don't have the problem we do here where someone could win on 30% of the vote. I can't ever see a majority of French voters supporting FN.

    I can. In response to such a brutal attack on la liberté, even the most level-headed member of la République may turn sharply to the right POST-HASTE

    the Danish equivalent to NF was recently the biggest party in polls

    I say we ditch democracy and introduce a moderate left oligarchy while there's still time
