Interviewed on CNN her cousin said that she feared she was killed for being Jewish as other women within the Charlie Hebdo offices were spared by the Kouachi brothers. Also killed in the attack was Jewish cartoonist Georges Wolinski as previously reported.

As a result of the attacks, Paris’s Grand Synagogue went into lockdown and did not open for Friday night services…the first time it had not been available for Shabbat services since the end of WWII.

    What has unfolded in Paris is just another episode on the Wars against the Jewish People, and more specifically wars against freedom of thought, and freedom to live in peace.

    Islam is a religion that is based on a death cult. There is no other way to explain their suicidal actions against children, the infirm, woman, or everyday people either riding on a bus, shopping in a super market, or mall. This is death personified.

    As an American I cannot imagine telling every Australian that they are driving on the wrong side of the road, when as a guest in Australia I decide to change the rules of driving to suit my tastes. Islam through Sharia laws tells its followers to break the laws of their host countries to suit their particular beliefs. If you question any of their fanatical beliefs you stand the chance of being called a racist and you may be killed for it.

    Everyone in the world needs to take a good hard look at the events that unfolded in Paris. What happened in France, can just as easily happen in Sydney, Perth, or any other city or town in Australia, if the people of Australia do not put an end to this madness first.
