The Vatican: Is The City Under Threat Of Invasion By The ISIS?

VaticanISIS often airs its threats to conquer Rome and convert St. Peter’s, above, into a mosque. These aspirations go all the way back to the early years of Islam, when Constantinople — capital of the Eastern Roman empire and bulwark of Christianity in the eastern Mediterranean and West Asia — was an early target of Arab ambitions.

This article was first published on the Eidolon site by BY

In October 2014 an arresting image appeared on the cover of Dabiq, the slickly produced, English-language magazine of ISIS (the “Islamic State in Syria,” also known also as the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,” among other names). The magazine features — as Robert Evans has detailed in an article of the “I read it so you don’t have to” variety — interviews with jihadis and photos of their brutally slain victims, together with other material calculated to entice the devout to join the cause of world domination.

The Photoshop job in question shows the ISIS flag flying in front of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, hoisted atop the Egyptian obelisk that marks the center of the piazza. The accompanying headline ‘The Failed Crusade’ imagines a reversal of the West’s medieval crusades, launched against the Muslim world from the Holy See. It also reverses the West’s more recent dispensations in the Middle East, from the divisions of the former Ottoman provinces after World War I to the results of the 2003 Iraq War.

ISIS is expert at representing its aspirations in prankish, media-friendly terms. Its black and white flag, inspired by ancient descriptions of Mohammed’s own banners, also coincides in color and general design with the Jolly Roger. It flutters in the image like a skull-and-crossbones raised over a captured vessel, the flagship of Western Christendom reduced to pirate’s booty.

The Italian daily Corriere della Sera was quick to take notice of the image, while in the International Business Times Umberto Bacchi pointed to the gloss provided by ISIS spokesperson Mohammed al-Adnani: “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted.” On one level he is trolling us with a cartoonish Orientalist stereotype (like Boris Karloff’s Fu Manchu urging his Asiatic hordes to “kill the white man and take his women!”) with the phallic obelisk mischievously restored to Eastern ownership. But al-Adnani is also quite serious.

Africans! Sorry for Aids and Ebola

NEW AIDSBy Micro-Surgeon and Scientist Johan Van Dongen

In America and Europe, educated white people with elitist attitude, have a blind eye to the real needs of Africans.  The domination and manipulation of black people by the so-called elites have devastated effects on the African continent beyond remedy.

Soldiers, scientists and politicians occupying high positions in Europe and America, must now realize within the second millennium, the destruction and aggression which took place in the last two hundred years in Africa, leaving the continent handicap with poverty and diseases.

I am a scientist and since I didn’t take part in this horrible crime against mankind, I am free to say that Africa is used as a dumping ground for unwanted drugs, for testing of drugs and for exposing people to bio-warfare products. The deliveries of war materials to the wrong regimes have adversely affected the continent as well.

Actually, it seems that Africa is not part of this world because the people have been seriously abused and degraded as if they are not human beings with brain walking around on the continent. Yet Africans are same products of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics realized as whites.

So what is the reason white rulers treat blacks unfairly? Many Europeans and Americans do not realize that there is a black American president. In this way, are we not aware that an educated black can also occupy a top position throughout the world? Of course, we do, but to what extent nowadays if we look over the African continent?

For four decades; I did investigations / research to reveal that Aids, Ebola, and many other deadly diseases were medical crimes against Africa. I can’t follow their evil deeds, so I’m the enemy today. But that’s not what bothers me, because the evil one sows, the same he shall reap. In order to scrape everything together to provide some counterweight to the destructive way in which Africans have suffered at the hands of whites, I can say that I am ashamed. Yes, I can also say that I can understand the suffering of Africans.

Every word of a white mouth seems as empty as the promises that he gives to the people on the continent of Africa. It is always easy for Europe and America to manipulate Africa, because of the corrupt regimes. Since Africa is the leading continent in corruption, Europe and America support and pay bribes to the corrupt African leaders to remain in power. The corrupt African leaders like that, so how do you expect them to accuse Europe and America of medical crimes against the continent?

The only thing that really holds water as described, is that Africans are intelligent enough to manage their own lives and not necessary to depend on the West and America to meddle in Africa’s politics. Africans themselves are in a position to lift up the African continent in the course of humanity to the top of the dams, but massive corruption dominates the leaders mind than the welfare of the poor and helpless Africans.

The so called educated white folk would have to learn, study and to listen to the voice of Africans. And if a black writer asks himself : “Why black folks were abused and degraded by other races,” there must be an answer, they shouldn’t hide from that question. The bell should ring in your minds.

Most striking to me is the absence of African-Americans and wealthy Africans in the diaspora. Not a single one is reaching his hand towards Africa, Africans, your descendants or us, to help reveal the truth about those man-made origins of Aids and Ebola. The Africans in the Diaspora now looked like whites and act like whites. They are not real Africans anymore!

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to know why the other races of mankind, especially the white race, abused and degraded the black race in such a manner. I have considered this question from every possible angle and yet did not seem to find an answer to it.

It was only recently when I forced myself to grapple with the implications of Quantum Mechanics, that I seem to get a handle on my question. It simply did not add up for the universe to allow one particular race, black people, to be insulted and humiliated in such a manner for no reason.

Of course, I can tell the white man with tears in my eyes, the reason he has abused and degraded the black race. In fact, I have said to all Africans in eighteen articles, my opinion about ‘the origin and spread of Aids.’ We, the Western civilization, has cut off African cultures from the traditional roots and the rest of the world cultures.

We, especially the Dutch, have captured Africans and brought them to America for our own profit. We make money out of blacks. That must be the answer! It is a disgrace to say that, but where does it really go wrong? It will be most certainly not Alexander the Great, although he was also white.

Intelligent Africans can call upon Alexander the Great and ask him why he didn’t prevent the down flow of Africa, instead of giving them an opening by bringing the African people into the stream of ancient civilizations? But…, Alexander didn’t explore the Nile and as a consequence, interior Africa or African people have been isolated from the rest of the world.

Also striking is that some Africans discussed the presence of mosquitoes and why white folk did not penetrate Africa until the nineteenth century? Within one of my hundreds of previous articles, I explained to Africans and the Afro-Americans that white folk has developed diseases and put them with genetic engineering techniques into African mosquitoes in order to kill black folks.

This is the reason the type of mosquitoes in Central Africa are different from normal mosquitoes in Africa. I can imagine that my research may not be satisfactory to many, but you shouldn’t doubt what I have said. I have already issued a challenge to all top scientists in Europe and America to prove me wrong, if Aids, Ebola, Lassa fever and other deadly diseases weren’t medical crimes against Africa, up till now no one has accepted the challenge.

They are quiet, not because I’m crazy or a liar, but rather they are running away from the truth. They are scared to death if I publish such articles and since I know that fear in their eyes, I will not stop writing or publishing the truth until the time I go down to my grave to rest. They must also live with their crime and guilty conscience forever.

As it were, nature was preserving Africans for a different type of civilization, the one that Africans are best suited for and the type they would lead the world into, a civilization based on love. Nature did not want to corrupt Africans by making them behave as how the other races of mankind behaved hatefully.

All human beings, white, black and oriental are the same and are coequal. Intelligence is distributed in the same pattern in all the races. As everywhere else, few Africans have superior intelligence, some have above average intelligence and most of them are average and a handful is mentally retarded. If Africans are the same as other people, why are they treated differently?

Dear Africans, in my investigations about ‘Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind’ I  explained the reason white folks have driven black people backward, I will do so again within the next articles. The white folks knew that Africans are intrinsically interested in understanding the meaning of love around them and the world they see.

Africans want to understand the implications of their living and seem to be the consciousness that they are more than matter. Revealing my investigation of Aids and Ebola as medical crimes, made me a whistle-blower, passing through lot of difficulties in my country, Holland, in a situation I could describe it as ‘Darkness fighting the light.’

Europe has exhausted itself, and it will continue to do so. Therefore it is now time for Africans to take over the reins of human civilization and to take your continent to a higher phase of civilization yourself. But never, NEVER be grateful to the whites for what they have done for you because they are too much in debt.

Europeans absolutely do not deserve that gratitude. On the contrary, I would say, of course, you have the right to say that love means union with all beings, I cannot deny that. To be truly human is to love all people. Black folks do love; they love white folks despite white folk’s abuse of them. All those facts are true, only…, white folks haven’t even started to learn those facts.

“In my opinion white smartness is a form of stupidity.” I need to say that because it’s absolutely not smart to degrade, abuse or backward African people in such a way. In the West, smart white people get the Nobel Prize for their criminal actions in Africa, which in my opinion, the Nobel Prize organization is also a criminal institute…!

Every nation that has committed a crime in Africa, during the colonial rule or with medical crimes, should accept the responsibility for all the misery in Africa. We cannot exculpate this mess passed on to the Africans. People can only live in peace together if they can live at peace with itself. Only then can insidious diseases, wars, riots and natural disasters that are increasingly bringing humanity into disrepair be stopped.

At the end of the last millennium all threats were known and the overall globalization of the third millennium. We should not forget the overall findings by the Aztecs as they mentioned the cataclysm year of 2012. Is it meaningless? I really don’t know. We should wait, but further destroying of our world will become increasingly intense, with protests, terror, and calls for war.

I really think we now have to face another sort of cataclysm. Refugee Migration! I also think that we need this to let white people understand what it takes to get a better future. Therefore I call upon every African or African refugees to come to the Western world to take back what belongs to you. Yes, Western Europe looted the African continent and all those riches they are now boasting of are still here. Come and enjoy your fruits of labour Africans.

Europeans didn’t only stole your wealth, but also your health, prosperity, and identity. This way the white ones will be forced to change their attitude. We can not shoot every black person as happening in America, we cannot drown every African in the Mediterranean Sea and we cannot kill every African with contaminated vaccines and poisonous medicines.

The mere fact that the net assets of the sixty-two richest people, like Soros, Gates, Rockefeller, Zuckerberg, and Rothchild, surpass the total income of the suffering and the underprivileged, indicates that the gap between rich and poor has become unbridgeable. They use this money in many projects to depopulate the world, sometimes without knowing it. Over a hundred employees of the World Health Organization are paid by Bill and Linda Gates. What about the secretly paid employees in other so-called distinguish organizations?

Pecuniary wealth has become concentrated in countries outside Africa, a continent plundered of human beings and wealth by the whites. In over one hundred poor countries, it’s just a sharp drop in the average income shown and that worldview is an increasingly rapid process to the detriment of Africa, which is not changing for the better.

Africans, you talked about God? I have long wondered exactly who He is and why He allows people to dice with African people for their own gain. I am not God, of course not, but certainly I know that He God is neither Ego, white, black, Jehovah, Muslim, Christian or Jew. Yes, God is not even an entity but still present.

I think the current belief on earth is, people feel they will not succeed in describing him as the Ultimate Source and power of the universe. The closest way to describe him to me seems to Quantum Mechanic and Physic theories but just then, humans forever will be humans until they have eradicated themselves.

Africans sorry!!!! But does my sorry and shame help? I doubt it, the only thing that will rest is to give the world back to the African natives and their splendid traditional healers….. A world without white conquerors…!

Life As Immigrant At The Notorious Pantanella In Via Casilina Rome

Ex Pastificio Pantanella occupato da centinaia di immigrati asiatici provenienti dal Pakistan e Bangladesh.Ex Pastificio Pantanella occupied by hundreds of Asian immigrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Roma Novembre 1990 Ex Pastificio Pantanella occupato da centinaia di immigrati asiatici provenienti dal Pakistan, Bangladesh, Africani tra cui (Joel Savage) Panoramica della Pantanella. Rome

As a child growing up in a strongly religious family, I was thought that everything which is opposite to the teachings of the Holy Bible, including laziness is a sin. I tried my best to live a clean life. We were thought to believe that Israel, Jerusalem, and other Biblical countries were all in heaven, without a slight knowledge those countries were on the same earth we are living today.

When I left my family looking for a job, I tried to be sincere and prevented doing anything wrong which could land me in jail. I read that jail changes people’s attitude to be good or worse. But I wasn’t interested to know the positive or negative influences of jail on people. My only interest is never to be there because it’s not the right place for me.

In the year 1990, from Lagos, Nigeria, I made a transit in Rome, on my way to German. In Rome, I was detained at the Fiumicino airport. The Italian immigration regularly does that to many foreigners, especially Africans. Like a tourist, I walked around the airport lounge without a room to sleep and food for three days. On the third, I was really starving, so I approached one of the immigration officials and said to him that I am hungry. He looked at my face and asked me “Am I your father?” Then he walked away.

Without knowing what the officials have in store for me, I handed over an application for asylum as a journalist and it worked, because I have some few publications over my profession on me. On the fourth day, from nowhere came one of the immigration officers, he said to me: “Your application has been accepted, today the police will come to take you to Rome.” I was shocked beyond expression.

Rome, January 31, 1991 Ex Pastificio Pantanella occupied by hundreds of Asian immigrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Police evacuate the Pantanella.

 The good Samaritan didn’t only deliver the unexpected message, but he pulled out from his pocket a number of notes and said to me: “I don’t want my colleagues to see me giving you money, buy some food to eat at the airport.” I didn’t take the money. I told him: “This important information you have given to me has taken all the hunger away, thank you.” He walked away with his money.

On the fourth day, the police came, just as the officer told me and took me in a police car to the city, Rome, and left me there to fight for my survival. Without anywhere to sleep, I passed all my nights at the Central Train Station. Among other Africans, we watched a big television screen during the day to forget our misery, then in the night, I go to sleep at my hiding place. The police and the workers at the train station never discovered the place I slept.

After some time, I discovered places where I could eat every day without paying for food. I could take my bath and take some clothes. One of such places was at ‘Via Dandolo.’ Daniela, the head of the Caritas (Charity) at Via Dandolo, was a very good woman, but one of her female workers was a very bad woman. A thief. Since we had no address, our letters passed through the Caritas at Via Dandola and this woman took the opportunity to steal money from our letters.

I caught her twice, so I wasn’t surprised when I lost the 10 pounds a friend sent me from England, but I didn’t tell Daniela about it. Through the Caritas, I had my initial lessons and attended classes to learn the Italian. I was one of the best immigrants who could write and speak the language fluently, yet my life was miserable because I was still sleeping at the train station.

In Rome, I was robbed, admitted and operated at a hospital, but the nurse refused to touch me, because of my color, thus; every morning when on duty, she calls someone to attend to me, but she had time for every Italian patient at the hospital. I was once sitting in the hospital’s garden after the operation, when an Italian old man, one of the patients came close to me, looked at my face and said to me: “Marocchino motaccizoa.” – an insult, after mistakenly taken me as a Moroccan. I didn’t say a word.

Then all of a sudden, as if it was announced on the radio, all the immigrants in Rome, without accommodation, discovered an abandoned Pasta factory called ‘Pantanella.’ Pantanella is notoriously known for all criminal activities, including drug peddling and crime, similar to drug cartel zones of Mexico. One needs strength, courage, heart and braveness to survive at that place. Italians think they are brave, but many of them dare to pass Via Casilina, the street Pantanella is located in the night.

That was the place I lived and worked as a toilet cleaner for thousands of immigrants, using six containers as toilets, to raise money to feed. I was employed by the Muslim head at the place. It’s terrible and frightening to live at Pantenella. It wasn’t a prison, but the place, I think was tough like Alcatraz, because of the criminal activities many illegal immigrants engaged in feeding.

The abandoned factory accommodated both soft and hardened criminals from various countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Africa etc. I lived in Pantanella for four months, and the Italian government tired of the crimes going on in that abandoned Pasta factory ejected all the foreigners.

But the Italian government did something great for the African immigrants. Something we weren’t expecting. The government paid for two weeks stay in a hotel for all the Africans, with the ultimatum that before the two weeks expired, we should find a place on our own to live.

Through a very good sympathetic woman called Nana, (she died in Rome a few years ago) I got a job as a houseboy to serve one journalist called Claudio Lavazza, working at television station TG2, belonging to the former Italian Prime Minister, Sylvio Berlusconi. He provided me accommodation and paid me well. Besides, he gave me the new version of Fiat Cinque Cento (500) to drive. It may be likely that I was the first black man in the entire Italy to drive the new Fiat Cinque Cento when it freshly came out. I met other journalist friends of Claudio, including Michele Cucuzza.

After three years, I said goodbye to Rome and returned to Africa. I married and returned to Europe once again but this time choosing Amsterdam. ‘Overseas Chronicle: The Rome and Amsterdam Experience’ is a book once started you’ll find it hard to put away, because of the shocking intriguing stories in the book. Find out more of what happened to me in Rome and later in Holland, which led me to detention in Amsterdam.

Love Conquers Everything If We Give Peace A Chance

Man 3Muslims praying in a Jewish Synagogue

After Mosque Arson, This Synagogue Opened Its Doors to Muslims in Need of a Place to Pray

by Rafi Schwartz : Original article published in ‘Good- A magazine for the Global Citizen

Sometimes it seems as if the world is full of nothing but sectarian violence and interfaith animosity. In Peterborough, Ontario, however, an act of hate intended to tear a city apart has instead brought it closer together.

The Masjid al-Salaam mosque serves a Muslim community of around 1,000. On November 14, that community suddenly found itself without a place to worship after a fire—believed to be deliberately set in what police are investigating as a “hate crime”—destroyed Peterborough’s only Muslim prayer space, causing a reported $80,000 in damages. It’s an attack that shocked the city, and drew immediate condemnation from Mayor Darryl Bennett, who called the arson “totally out of character” for his community, echoing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said he was “deeply disturbed,” reports CBC.ca.

In response to the attack, Peterborough’s Jewish community has stepped up and offered their prayer space to the temporarily displaced mosque members as place where they can worship. Larry Gillman, president of the city’s Beth Israel Synagogue, told The Canadian Jewish News: “I immediately sent an email to our board with the idea of sharing our space with the Muslim community, realizing that they were not going to have a place to pray in the meantime.”

Since extending their invitation, Beth Israel has hosted a number of prayer sessions for the mosque’s members, as well as an interfaith potluck dinner. Children from the synagogue greeted their guests with a large, handmade banner reading “Welcome Friends,” hung across the wall of the makeshift prayer space.

Canadian media outlet CityNews reported from the scene:

To that end, the synagogue also shares its space with the local Unitarian Fellowship.

Speaking with CBC.ca, Masjid al-Salaam president Kenzu Abdella described a sense of trepidation after receiving the synagogue’s offer, but “within 24 hours, that changed. [Synagogue representatives] walked to the mosque and told us that whatever we need, they will support us.”

Even though it came out of a tragedy,” he added, “we are working together.”

In addition to the temporary prayer space, a crowdfunding effort raised over $110,000 to cover the cost of the mosque’s reconstruction.

We’re so grateful to everyone,” Abdella told The Canadian Jewish News. “It’s not just the financial aspect that really makes us very proud to be Canadian and proud to be a part of the Peterborough community, but the comments we’ve received in support …

Obesity: A Major Public Health Epidemic In Both The Developed And The Developing World.

OBY 5

“Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese, 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese. 

Most of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013. Obesity is preventable,” according to the World Health Organisation. 

In an effort to fight against increasing obesity, the government of Dubai recently offered residents, one gram of gold, which worth approximately $45 at that time, for every kilogram of weight loss. To make it a successful program, the weight loss was fixed in the time of Ramadan, when every Muslim eat less. The fact is serious obesity sends people early to the grave.

Food is extremely delicious, especially when well prepared to meet the right taste, but if you don’t have self-control, the ability or strength to fight food addiction, then you should know that you are inviting so many health hazards into your life. People suffering from obesity can tell you about criticisms and gossips against them daily in public, office or wherever they go.

In Europe, the United Kingdom has the higher rate of obesity and overweight people than anywhere in Western Europe, according to an authoritative global study that raises fresh concerns about the likely health consequences. In the UK, 67 percent of men and 57 percent of women are either fighting against obese or overweight. Published in the Lancet Medical Journal, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study, more than a quarter of children, 26 percent of boys and 29 percent of girls are also overweight in the UK.

Going to the gym to keep the body fit is a daunting task for many. If you want to avoid going to the gym to work against overweight, then eating the right food should be everyone’s priority. One needs to understand what some foods are high in saturated fats and cholesterol, you must, therefore, avoid these foods which build up in your stomach, arteries, and veins.

For example, the yolk of an egg has 300 mg of cholesterol; it is, therefore, better and healthy to eat the white instead. Eating 10 whole eggs in a week gives one 3 grams of cholesterol in your body. Another way of avoiding obesity is to stop eating fried foods since they absorb the fats that they are cooked in.

There are so many recommended books and online articles in health journals, on how to avoid or deal with obesity and overweight. You can do it too since many have done it. Prevention is always better than cure.

More Hatred For Foreigners In Belgium Aftermath The France Attacks

MoroccoNot every Moroccan or Muslim is a terrorist and not every African is a criminal, but whenever terrorists strike or an African commits a crime, all eyes are on foreigners as criminals or  terrorists. 

The recent  events in France; leaving dozens dead in shootings and explosions, have generated pure hatred to foreigners in Belgium. Belgium is a country integration is very poor, compared to other European countries, yet they do their best for foreigners

According to a Moroccan woman who visited the hospital with her daughter, the day terrorists attacked France, she saw the anger on the face of the doctor who was attending her child. At one point her daughter’s head hit an object when the doctor lifts up the child.

At work, she greets but no one responds. It was really a psychological torture for her to find herself in the center of such hatred, when she wasn’t part of France attacks or not a terrorist.

Once listening to a radio debate over Muslims in Brussels, a man suggested that the Muslim community in Brussels needs a swimming pool for Muslims alone.  This Moroccan woman who doesn’t agree to what the man said, called to tell the man “You are in Belgium, go to Morocco and build your swimming pool there.”

Unfortunately, after the France attacks, she is now a victim of hatred, with many others, because she is a Moroccan. It’s completely wrong to hate someone over crime other people commit. I don’t hate any European for all the bad things they did against Africa, thus; I wouldn’t be happy for someone to hate me, because of a crime a foreigner commits.

Would France Be Free From Terrorism Without Colonizing Many Islamic Countries?

 

France 3“France population consists of dangerous terrorists born and raised in the country, making the country an easy target.” – Joel Savage

The scramble for Africa was very swift. It was an opportunity Europeans made good use of it, but with iron fist, after discovering Africa’s wealth, in the least advanced continent. Even though malaria killed hundreds of Europeans, by 1862, they had reached the source of the Nile, then little later, they traced the route of the Niger and confirmed the reality of Africa’s rich mineral resources- ivory, gold, diamonds, tin, copper, rubber etc.

Between the 1870’s and 1900, Africa experienced European imperialist invasion, diplomatic pressures, military invasions, and eventual conquest and colonization. Among other European countries, France had Republic of Benin, Upper Volta, now Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of Chad, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Senegal and Republic of Togo in Sub-Saharan Africa, and Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia in North Africa, then Djibouti, Lebanon and Syria.

Since most of the countries colonized by France were Islamic countries, Islam became the second largest professed religion in France, following Catholic-Christians, with an estimated total of 5 to 10 percent of the national population. France stands as the largest Muslim country in Western Europe. Do we have to ask: Would France be free from terrorism without colonizing many Islamic countries?

As the story unfolds, France ruled heavy Islamic dominant countries, including Republic of Guinea, until Guinea attained its independence in 1958.  Like Belgium, that couldn’t stand the pain of losing Congo and embarked on ruthless destruction of Congo, both physically and medically, France aimed to destroy Guinea as well. They emptied all the coffers of the bank and took everything from the state house, including the furniture to France. The newly elected Prime Minister Ahmed Sekou Touré inherited a very bad economy and complete looted country.

France still interested in Africa, established its embassies in every country they colonized and continued interfering with African politics. The reason whenever there is coup in any of the countries France colonized, they quickly send the military to arrest the situation. France seen as paradise, nationals from countries they colonized in Africa, had the opportunity to travel to France to study, request for political asylum and  to work as immigrants.

Apart from migration, a lot of Muslims were born in France, amounting to 15 percent of the total population, creating Muslim communities through out France. The country therefore has a long and complicated relationship with the Muslim world and its own immigrant population, many of whom have been in the country for generations.

Due to the heavy concentration of Muslims in France, the country is therefore an easy target for terrorists.  In the beginning of this year, gunmen shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, in an apparent militant Islamist attack. That’s where France should have been careful to avoid the present  attacks that have killed at least 129 people.

Under President Francois Hollande, France launched its first airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria in September, but external attacks against terrorists, can’t weaken the foundation of terrorism threatening France, because the enemies-terrorists are within the people in the country. The France government should first fight against terrorism at home, to weaken its foundation, before concentrating on external issues.
