what about the 2000+ killed by Boko Haram in Nigeria last month.....( I appreciate tragedy in Paris - but we should not forget atrocities by extremists elsewhere)
You may be on the wrong topic here oldpm but I agree with your point. These atrocities are everywhere not just France, and Charlie Hebdo have IMO taunted for long enough. Freedom of speech is fine unless it destroys another. In this case it indirectly destroyed 17 through their own persistence.
Isis beheading children for being Christians doesn't even get heard of now, or the systematic beatings, torture and killings of many more in these dreadful situations.
That could I suppose be due to the fact that only governments or armies can intervene in such ,where as the people took the power to the streets in France and Germany. People in other countries cannot do that.
When 1,500 million took to the streets of London against the Iraq invasion......that man should have listened !
