Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed Israel’s foreign minister and the head of the Mossad to render “every possible assistance” to French authorities in light of the Charlie Hebdo killings and two hostage-taking situations in Paris, Netanyahu’s spokesman Ofir Gendelman tweeted on Friday.

The Israeli Prime Minister also met with French Ambassador to Israel Patrick Maisonnave on Friday and reaffirmed Israel’s commitment to work together with France in defeating “the enemies of the democratic values we all cherish.”

“We have experienced such attacks, we know the feeling, and we share your grief, but also your resolve, which has been demonstrated in the last few days by so many of France’s citizens who gathered to say, we have to fight these enemies of our common civilization,” Netanyahu said. “Bringing to justice the Paris murderers is just the beginning. It must be followed by a broad based assault on the forces of radical Islam throughout the world. This is everyone’s battle.”

Wednesday’s terror shooting on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris resulted in the deaths of 12 people, including Jewish cartoonist Georges Wollinski. The two Islamic terrorists wanted for the attack were killed in a raid on Friday by security forces at a print shop where they were holed up with a hostage, Reuters reported.

    Hey,Ben, Don’t forget to thank those great French cops. If you have any extra ammo laying round ship them a few thousand rounds and some fresh doughnuts.

    Not a lot that can be said in relation to the matter, they were known to the French. Little things like how they did not conduct surveillance or recon the building as they feared they were being watched. Hence they had trouble finding the offices.

    Although I do not condone what these terrorists did, one has to go back and see what brought this on. For a very long time the French Government has looked the other way and gave in to Islamic terrorists very easily. France wanted to smell of such sweet fragrance in the European Market that it got dizzy from it’s own smell and tolerated the Islamic rendition of democracy. When the Muslims stared closing off streets to pray in the middle of it, they threw the gauntlet to the Government. This attitude of theirs is of defiance of the French authorities. They thought this was a harmless gesture but by doing nothing this gave the Muslims power. Nothing is harmless with these people, terrorists or not. Maybe now the know it all French authorities who wants to show off their ” cultural tolerance “, will realise that these people only understand one language and that is to fight hard to keep them out of France for like a bottle of poison, they keep their sting as revenge is what keeps their blood pumping. It is too late now for too many have ben allowed in the country for like foot and mouth disease cows, even if you bury them, they are still harmful. May G-d help France and all other countries being plagued by these brainless brainwashed parasites/

    It is critical that Israel offer assistance to France at this time to show that Israel wishes to work with any country which is confronted with the scourge of radical Islamic terror.

    It’s time to expel all Muslims from the country (all the European countries) and close the borders to any Muslim visitors. Tough luck — if you’re an innocent, peaceful Muslim, then why haven’t you organized yourselves into groups to speak out and oppose the terrorism, barbarism, cultural isolationism of your Muslim brothers and sisters?! Take a clear stand, or be expelled.

  • The world needs to put together immediately an International task forces to fight terrorism and Muslim extremists. It needs to be a well trained force with substantial resources and manpower as well as an International intelligence cooperation with no restriction. It has to be a unified and cohesive battle to abolish terrorism at all costs. Let the terrorists know that there is no hole they can hide in, that the world terrorist task force and other law enforcement agencies will get them wherever they are. We must shut off all their resources, financing, financial institutions and any source that supply them with any kind of support; weaponry, economic, information, etc. whatsoever.
    I urge the world powers at large to take these terrorist events seriously with utmost urgency. The situation is at a critical stage and if immediate all out action is not taken in all parts of the world, terror and mayhem will take over the world and we will not be able to stop it.
    Just imagine if one of those terrorist got a hold of a nuclear suitcase bomb. Do I need to describe it any further.
    Is there a leader today (please stand up) in the free world who can take the bull by the horn and initiate this global war on terrorism.

      There is a defect in Western civilization . We rely on government agencies ran by politician/clerks to defend our societies. Their policy is to hire golfers who work in an office on an 8 AM to 5 PM schedule . They seldom have had an experience with a street mugger much less a fanatic killer but the media has faith that these kind will bring positive results. A great example is the lady who dodged sniper bullets in Bosnia and was in charge of affairs in Libya when a clerk was drug down the streets by those insulted by a movie. As you see sir.The USA is being led by educated idiots who have experience in shuffling papers and making eloquent speeches and betting the taxpayers last dollar on non functional robots. Our worst enemy is not the terrorist .It is stupid actors holding positions of power that should be undertaken by real men with combat experience.
