Police raided the homes of dozens of radical Islamists in Paris after a Chechen born teenager beheaded a teacher for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to students.
The operation followed directives from President Macron to crack down on radicals whose doctrines are blamed for provoking Abdullakh Anzorov, 18, to murder Samuel Paty, who taught at a secondary school on the outskirts of Paris.
Gérald Darmanin, the interior minister, said that the targets of the raids were not suspected of involvement in the slaying but were known activities and that they had a clear intention of passing a message and that there wouldn’t be a minute’s rest for adversaries of the republic.
It’s simple really if they don’t like the cultural norms of the country they’re living in, then don’t stay and don’t go applying the sort of medieval punishment they found in their own country.
You know the saying, when in Rome and if these people don’t like our ways, then they should leave.
Europe has been infested by all kinds of terrorist minds, but it’s not they’re fault, we let them in – we greeted them with open arms and now we’re paying the price with blood.
It’s terrible what happened, but we must also remember not to tar everyone with the same brush. The problem is, the same brush seems to apply to a common reoccurring theme no matter how compassionate we might want to be and that’s the problem, and the majority of Muslims in France were born there.
And we have to remember that there are millions of Muslims in Europe and few have killed anyone and perhaps we have been too free with our bombs in other people’s countries, although I don’t condone this in any way.
What baffles me is, why was this teacher showing this kind of cartoon to school children?
There’s no problem with people having different beliefs, but that should never spill out onto other people, especially when it comes to slaying another person because of their beliefs, and this teacher could have shown his students some caricature of something else, perhaps President Macron – at least he wouldn’t have become headless.
Of course, this teacher didn’t deserve what he got and showing a cartoon as an educational tool doesn’t justify murder, and sometimes it’s better to keep quiet if you don’t know anything about a subject or topic, although he should have been able to discuss any faith openly and we should be able to caricature without fear of reprisals.
People come from different country’s all the time and settle in very well, however, some refuse to assimilate, and we can’t have people like this living in our country’s if they can’t be bothered to adhere to our laws and criteria.
