While a radical Islamist was carrying out a shooting spree and taking hostages at a kosher supermarket in a Paris suburb on Friday, another Muslim, Lassana Bathily from Mali, who worked at the store, was saving the lives of shoppers and helping them hide in a supermarket freezer

    it is important to know this. more should be reported about Lassana Bathily; he is a hero and deserves recognition as such.

    The second part of the story is that the Jewish owners hired a muslim.. They should get at least some credit for that. No one has ever denied that there are good muslims. It is that Jews have been targeted for being Jews

    It would have been so easy to run away or just play along.Most people want to cling to life at any cost.This great man has kept his life and will live with a clean conscience that few cowards have ever experienced by their actions.He should be thanked by the people of France. They are fortunate to have this kind in their mist.
