The Religion of peace strikes again. Gunmen from al-Qaeda’s Yemen affiliated stormed the offices French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. As of this writing, 12 were killed and the Islamic militants are still on the loose.
PARIS (AP) — Three masked gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar!” stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday, killing 12 people, including its editor, before escaping in a car. It was France’s deadliest postwar terrorist attack.
Security forces were hunting for the gunmen who spoke flawless, unaccented French in the military-style noon-time attack on the weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo, located near Paris’ Bastille monument. The publication’s caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed have frequently drawn condemnation from Muslims.
President Francois Hollande called the slayings “a terrorist attack without a doubt,” and said several other attacks have been thwarted in France “in recent weeks.”
“Hey! We avenged the Prophet Muhammad! We killed Charlie Hebdo,” one of the men shouted in French, according to a video shot from a nearby building and broadcast on French TV. Other video showed two gunmen in black at a crossroads who appeared to fire down one of the streets. A cry of “Allahu akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great”— could be heard among the gunshots.
On social media, supporters of militant Islamic groups praised the move. One self-described Tunisian loyalist of al-Qaida and the Islamic State group tweeted that the attack was well-deserved revenge against France.
Over at LGF, they are downplaying this attack and mocking people who are angry about it.
Charles chimes in on the attack and rather than condeming the act, he lashes at out at the Right.
Terror attacks have become an opportunity for the right to pound their chests and spew indiscriminate hatred at Muslims.

Charles and LGF support Islamic terrorism.
Posted without comment.
Charles criticizes people posting the anti-Islamic cartoons.
Charles sympathizes with Islamists, not the people killed.
Now Curious Lurker chimes in.
Its obvious where her sympathies lie.
