    CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER STEPHEN HARPER: The fact of the matter is this, ladies and gentlemen. The international jihadist movement has declared war. They have declared war on anybody who does not think and act exactly how they would think and act, they have declared war and are executing it on a massive scale, on a whole range of countries with which they are in contact, and they have declared war on any country like ourselves that values freedom openness and tolerance. We may not like this and wish it would go away, but it is not going to go away.

    The next time newspaper reporters start making fun of how stupid some politicians are, they could always discuss Adam Taylor. The Washington Post foreign affairs writer was dim enough to ask “France has strict gun laws. Why didn’t that save Charlie Hebdo victims?” It never sinks in, that trusty old maxim about if you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have guns. Taylor not only asked a dim-witted question, he mocked Donald Trump for asking it, and then he asked it in all sincerity: Trump, a perennial attention seeker, was likely attempting to score political points and insult liberals with...

    "Just to keep it into perspective, I don't think we should imagine that the conditions and the threat are exactly the same in the United States as they are in France. They are different. In fact, one thing that is different here is weapons are universally available and so it is actually a very good thing that, that the tensions are not exactly the same because we would expect to have a lot more carnage," Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson said on the Friday broadcast of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports.

    New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof warns "we have to be very, very careful not to engage in religious profiling and to recognize that one can't blame 1.6 billion adherents of this vast and complex religion." "One can't blame this event on all of them. One has to acknowledge that the Taliban folks who is shot Malala [Yousafzai] are one element of Islam and Malala herself is another. And this is a religion that contains multitudes," Kristof said Thursday afternoon on CNN. Kristof also warned of society's tendacy to "otherize" people. "I think we have a tendency to otherize people,...
  • NBC Terror Expert on Paris: This Seems To Be Ratcheting It Down, Not Ratcheting It Up

    On MSNBC this afternoon, NBC terrorism expert Evan Kohlmann said the terror attack in Paris today seems to signal terror organizations are "ratcheting it up" and not "ratcheting it down." Kohlmann was very doubtful that these terrorists who had an elaborate escape plan are connected to any major terror group like al Qaeda and ISIS. "It is not clear these individuals are operating under orders or guidance or instructions from anyone, other than what's in their own heads," Kohlmann surmised. Later in the segment, Coleman lamented France has a "historical problem with Islamophobia."

    Quran 8:12: I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks Again and again details of the incident mirror all jihadi attacks .... pray then kill. Pray then kill. But dare not speak of motive. The New York Times buries the lede in the ninth paragraph. The Muslim who stabbed a soldier in the neck on the streets of Paris "was seen on video praying a few minutes before the attack" and was a young, recently converted Islamist.' "Sources said that there was no indication of any tendency toward violence in his behavior." Such...

A police union spokesman said surveillance footage of the attacker showed him as tall and bearded, aged about 35, possibly of North African origin and wearing a white Arab-style...

    A French soldier patrolling a business neighborhood west of Paris was stabbed in the neck on Saturday by a man who quickly fled the scene and is being sought by police, President Francois Hollande said.

SNIP Peyvel said the man was able to flee into a crowded shopping area in the La Defense business neighborhood before the two other soldiers, who were...
