Europe: “We will not allow fear to change us”

How inconvenient for the left’s narrative for all of this to have occurred.  It ‘plays right into our hands’ to have a ‘convenient’ bloodbath by some lone-wolf madmen so we can push through our statist, totalitarian, freedom eroding legislation.

Meanwhile, in the real world

More European leaders have joined David Cameron in accepting President Francois Hollande’s invitation to attend a Unity Rally in Paris’s Place de la Republique on Sunday to “celebrate the values behind Charlie Hebdo”.

Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, EU president Donald Tusk, German chancellor Angela Merkel and Spanish president Mariano Rajoy Brey will be among the dignitaries.

“I will be in Paris this Sunday supporting the French people. Spain with France are against terrorism and for liberty.”

“On Sunday I will be with Francois Hollande in Paris … We will not allow fear to change us.”

Meanwhile, the French woman suspected accomplice described as “armed and dangerous” is still at liberty. This isn’t over yet.

Damn lone wolf madmen and woman.

In the aftermath, things are still not entirely clear.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has just spoken in Paris.

He doesn’t want to give too much info without vetting it first with judicial authority.

“The investigation is ongoing. We’re gradually getting more clarity on what happened.”

He began by thanking all GIGN security forces and police who made the liberation of hostages possible. The safety of hostages “was kept under difficult and oppressive circumstances” while the risks were high, he said. They were “professional and courageous.”

Despite Friday’s developments, Cazeneuve insists that France remains on high alert. We remain extraordinarily mobilized to ensure the safety of all French people in France. “Over the past several months, we have taken precautions through anti-terror laws to be more effective in combatting terrorism. On Sunday, I am meeting my EU colleagues who have been invited to Paris. We are obligated to remain vigilant.”
