Charlie Hebdo


Like most Americans, I had never heard of the satirical  Charlie Hebdo weekly French newspaper before today.  It’s fare is not that kind that I would be interested in, even if it were available in English.

No matter how irreverent and insulting the periodical’s content, though, nothing it could have published – words and pictures – could have warranted the systematic, brutal attack that took place earlier today – nothing.

The ideology behind this, unless stopped, is a danger to the future stability of the world.  There was likely three people working together in a terrorist cell and they are certainly not going to be the last.  There is no doubt in my mind that other attacks will occur – and some will make it to America.
