81-Year-Old Jewish Cartoonist Among 12 Murdered in Paris Terror Attack

At least 12 people died in an attack on the Paris headquarters of the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine.

Footage from the scene of the attack shows two armed men exiting a black car and shooting a rifle at a police officer near the building. One of the assailants then approached the officer and shot him in the head, in the video of the attack Wednesday posted on the French news website

Ten people also were wounded in the attack, five in serious condition.

The assailants escaped the scene. The identities of the victims have not yet been made known.

Two of the 12 people reported killed were police officers, according to the French daily Le Monde. Employees of the satirical magazine also are reported killed. Among them was caricaturist Georges Wolinski, 81, a French Jew who was born in Tunisia and moved to France at the age of 13 and has worked in leading publications including L’Humanité, Le Nouvel Observateur and Paris Match.

According to the Le Monde report, the assailants cried out “Allah is the greatest” and that their attack was to “avenge the prophet.”

    If you had the right to vote in France, and elections were being held right now, who would you vote for?
    Should I dare vote for Le Pen?
    On second thought, probably doesn’t matter who wins. This may escalate world-wide, and lead to a repeat of the X-tian/Muslim wars, they had centuries ago.

    Can anyone guess where this is going to happen next……? (I’ll give you some insight – being that I’ve been saying for years that this was going to happen almost exactly as it did, I hope I’m wrong, but in my opinion it’s not a question of “if” or “how”, but “when” and “where”…….) Better check your Mezuzos and stock up on ammo!!!

    Men and women should be skilled in the use of a firearm.

    But these ALIENS, from some other kind of creation, are also armed, and are not deterred by anyone else arms. So, get ready for a big battle.

    The approach of Noah was about his own. The approach of Avrohom Avinu was to mekarev and draw Jews to the King and His commandments. And this will help us and the rest of the world. And this is what the Rebbe told him us to do. Then we will neutralize the evil element and the spirit of impurity will be cleansed from the world. And be prepared the other ways as well.
