WASHINGTON, D.C. – Over 100 people were killed in Paris, France Friday when gunmen stormed a music venue where a rock band was playing.

The reaction across the free world was swift, and police forces in major cities mobilized to ward any potential threats here in the United States.

French President François Hollande said “In the face of terror, there is a nation that knows how to defend, knows mobilize its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists.”

President Barack Obama had the following response:

“This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond. France is our oldest ally. The French people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States time and again. And we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism. Paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong. The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberté and égalité and fraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about, but they are values that we share. And those values are going to endure far beyond any act of terrorism or the hateful vision of those who perpetrated the crimes this evening. We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice, and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people.” —President Obama on the attacks in Paris

    The quickest way to get results is to threaten the moderate Islamic community with eviction. Force them to make a choice: peaceful Islam or Jihad. Shut down their Mosques and deport them. Offer one way tickets to Syria. Once you travel to a Muslim nation, you dont come back. You get ONE chance to embrace western values. Check Islam at the door.

      Good comment. We should lay down the law with the moderate Muslim’s. Either support our country or get out.
