After Islamic Terrorists Kill Journalist Over Cartoons, Muslims Around The World Protest & Riot Over… The Cartoons.
If it were not for death and mayhem, the french satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo could say the Islamic terrorists have been the best marketing agency this side of the 21st century. The January 5th terrorist attack that claimed the lives of 12 Charlie Hebdo contributors has now morphed into a global act of terror. The oversensitive, free speech hating terrorists have been amping up attacks since the satirical newspaper chose not to back down in the face of terror.
According to Yahoo News, five people were murdered and eight churches were burned in Niger, as an act of protest to Charlie Hebdo. These attacks came as many countries have ramped up security in the wake of terrorist attacks in France. The church burnings and murder came in the second day of protests in Niger. Niger, a former French colony, is considered predominantly Muslim today.
The Islamic protestors, which number around 1,000, bore iron bars, clubs, axes, and hurling rocks in the attack. The local police responded with tear gas in an attempt to break up the violent protest. Niger's President Mahamadoi Issoufou called for calm, as the French embassy in the region urged citizens to stay home.
Death Tolls from the first day of Islamic protests had to raised from four to five bodies after a body was found burned inside a church, President Issoufou stated in his broadcast on state TV.
The global Islamic protests have taken up residence in Russia, Pakistan, and Greece.
In Russia, an estimated 15,000 people rallied in Russia's Muslim North Caucasus region of Ingushetia against Charlie Hebdo. Protests in Pakistan and Gaza on Friday included defacing the French cultural centre with graffiti, that read "You will go to hell, French journalists". French investigators detained 12 people on Friday and questioned them over "possible logistical support" they may have given to the Paris gunmen, Yahoo News reports. Belgium deployed troops on the streets after security forces this week disrupted a suspected Islamist terrorist cell plan that was allegedly trying to kill police officers. This was the first time troops walked the streets in Belgium in 35 years, thanks to Islamic terrorists. In Greece, "anti-terror" police arrested at least four people suspected of links to a dismantled jihadist cell. Britain is taking their own measures to arm police, who apparently are otherwise mostly unarmed, with taser guns.
A disturbing survey, that was released Sunday, shows that not all of France is truly in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo. The survey said that 42 percent of French citizens think publications should avoid running cartoons of Mohammed, and 50 percent favored limiting freedom of expression on the Internet and places like Facebook and Twitter. The poll was published in the French weekly journal Le Journal du Dimanche.
Charlie Hebdo's chief editor defended the cartoons to NBC's Meet The Press, saying it defends freedom of religion.
"Every time we draw a cartoon of Mohammed, every time we draw a cartoon of prophets, every time we draw a cartoon of God, we defend the freedom of religion.”
In a move that only serves to highlight America's current standing on freedom of speech, and sending the founding fathers into a perpetual spin cycle, French President Francois Hollande said France was committed to "freedom of expression". Hollande stated that is was "non-negotiable". In a speech, he urged his fellow Frenchmen not to change their day-to-day activities, because "to do so would be to yield to terrorism".
The french satirical magazine, as an act of defiance against the free speech quashing terrorist act, released the very next issue on schedule on last Wednesday. The last count of issues sold was 7 million and climbing. Sadly, America's so-called "free press" refuses to print Charlie Hebdo's cartoons. If you support free speech, the magazine can be purchased online, and all the app stores carry it.
