Face of the day

I honour todays’s face of the day, Stephane Charbonnier, a year after his brutal murder at the hands of Islamic terrorists. The media blamed him and his fellow journalists for what was done to them. They said that they incited the violence by offending Muslims. Now a year later, other Islamic terrorist attacks inside France have blown holes in the argument of incitement. It is growing more and more difficult for Islamic apologists to blame the victims of Islamic terrorism.

It is well past time the MSM acknowledged that Islamic terrorism is the military arm of the ideology of Islam. It is well past time the MSM called the Muslim Brotherhood out for what it is the propaganda and legal arm of the ideology of Islam. It is well past time the MSM acknowledged that Islam is not just a religion but an entire way of life. It is a legal system and a system of government. Its goals and beliefs are totally incompatible with democracy and human rights. It is a supremacist organisation that cannot and will not assimilate into our western societies. Allowing Islam to grow in numbers and strength inside our societies is cultural and democratic suicide.

On 7 January 2015 at about 11:30 local time, two brothers, Sa?d and Ch?rif Kouachi, forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Armed with assault rifles and other weapons, they killed 11 people and injured 11 others in the building. After leaving, they killed a French National Police officer outside the building. The gunmen identified themselves as belonging to the Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen, who took responsibility for the attack. Several related attacks followed in the ?le-de-France region, where a further five were killed and 11 wounded.

France raised its Vigipirate terror alert and deployed soldiers in ?le-de-France and Picardy. A massive manhunt led to the discovery of the suspects, who exchanged fire with police. The brothers took hostages at a signage company in Dammartin-en-Go?le on 9 January and were shot dead when they emerged from the building firing.

On 11 January, about two million people, including more than 40 world leaders, met in Paris for a rally of national unity, and 3.7 million people joined demonstrations across France. The phrase Je suis Charlie has become a common slogan of support at the rallies and in social media. The staff of Charlie Hebdo continued with the publication, and the following issue print ran 7.95 million copies in six languages, in contrast to its typical print run of 60,000 in only French.

Today I also honour all the Israeli victims of Islamic terrorism. Their death toll keeps rising day by day, yet the Islamic terrorism, which they face on a daily basis inside their country, is misreported by the Media or ignored.

28 lives have been stolen in terrorist attacks during the current wave of violence. We have updated this graphic too many times already. We pray there will be no more.

Where is the international outcry? Today we remember all 28 victims, including the Palestinian victim who was murdered by another Palestinian in an attempt to kill more Jews.

This extremism harms everyone. #StopIncitement ? with Mahesh Dammika Irsuriya Arachchilage.

Stand With Us

A message from the grave

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier, has attacked his magazine’s critics in a book that was completed two days before he was murdered. The Islamic terrorists intent was to silence him and his magazine forever but his death and words will be forever remembered historically whereas his brainwashed killers will remain anonymous pawns in the dark game of caliphates.

Head lone wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen says attack some more, but don’t worry it’s not at all related to Islam

The head lone?wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen?has called for more attacks by the other lone wolves out there.

But we mustn’t be afraid this has nothing at all to do with Islam.

Al-Qaeda’s Yemen branch called for lone-wolf attacks against the United States and the West in a video posted Tuesday, days after the group claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo killings.

One of the group’s ideologues, Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi, urged supporters to conduct what he called “individual jihad,” according to the SITE monitoring group, which tracks Islamist extremists online.

“We are preparing and lurking for the enemies of Allah. We incite the believers to do that,” Ansi is quoted as saying in the online video.

In a previous video, Ansi claimed Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was behind the attack on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, the start of three days of bloodshed in France that left 17 people dead. ? Read more »

Charlie Hebdo Editor Slams Gutless News Organizations For Not Publishing Cartoons

Huffington Post reports:

Gerard Biard, editor-in-chief of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, on Sunday denounced the Western publications that have declined to reprint his paper?s controversial cartoons in the aftermath of the Jan. 7 mass shooting at Charlie Hebdo’s Paris office.

?This cartoon is not just a little figure. It?s a symbol. It?s the symbol of freedom of speech, of freedom of religion, of democracy and secularism,? Biard told NBC?s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. ?When they refuse to publish this cartoon, when they blur it out, when they decline to publish it, they blur out democracy.?

Biard said he was in London at the time of the shooting, when two masked gunmenstormed the publication?s headquarters and killed 12 people, including editor St?phane Charbonnier and several of the paper’s cartoonists and editorialists.

The attack, for which the group al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility this week, was an apparent response to the paper?s history of publishing cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.? Read more »

Face of the day

Today’s Face of the day is a man of courage, a man who stood for freedom of expression, a man who persisted in the face of danger. His body guard was not able to save him or the others at his newspaper. I honour him, and them today and I challenge us all to not let their deaths be in vain. We too must be brave. We too must stand strong against this worldwide threat against the freedoms that we hold so dear.

#JeSuisCharlie – Cartoons that ‘offend’

Freedom of speech and expression is important, terrorists cannot be allowed to win through intimidation and bullying.

They especially can’t be allowed to win over silly drawings.

12 people were killed in?the terror?attack in Paris on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical newspaper, including the editor Stephane “Charb” Charbonnier.

Violence must not silence the media…or anyone else for that matter.
