Thoughts And Prayers To The People Of France.


France was attacked today.  Scores have died in this senseless, mindless, and entirely preventable attack. 

Paris attacks: At least 153 killed in gunfire and blasts, French official says

Paris (CNN)On a night when thousands of Paris residents and tourists were reveling and fans were enjoying a soccer match between France and world champion Germany, horror struck in an unprecedented manner. Terrorists — some with AK-47s, some reportedly with bombs strapped to them — attacked sites throughout the French capital and at the stadium where the soccer match was underway.

Scores were killed in the coordinated attacks late Friday, leaving a nation in mourning and the world in shock. CNN will update this story as information comes in:

    • At least 153 people were killed in the Paris and Saint-Denis shootings and bombings, French officials said. Among the victims, 112 were killed at the Bataclan concert venue, according to the Interior Ministry. Saint-Denis is home to the national stadium where the match was being played.  …..

    You can read more at the link, or any other news outlet. 

    For this post, this is all I have to say about ……. I pray the loved ones of the murdered find comfort.  I pray the patriots find resolve.  I pray the people of France, Europe, and the world open their eyes and see what is happening.  And, I pray we prevent this from ever happening again.

      My money is on Marine Le Pen’s National Front…
      …and Merkel is probably out

      I don’t understand this at all…unless ISIS is trying to keep Syrians from emigrating

      What a horror

      • suyts says:

        Lunatics are irrational. That’s why you can’t understand it. They’re overplaying their hand.

      • DirkH says:

        “I don’t understand this at all…unless ISIS is trying to keep Syrians from emigrating”

        It’s very easy to understand: Quran: “Strike fear in the hearts of the unbelievers”. The root of the Arabic word used is the same as for terror. Terror is essential ingredient of Islam.

        The commandment to terrorize has always been part of the Quran BECAUSE someone wanted to use it. Islam is DESIGNED to be used as a terror instrument.

        The Quran is in a way comparable to Sun Tzus Art Of War, just diluted by all kinds of other crap, and a jumbled mess. A war manual. To be used.

      BTW, the band Eagles Of Death Methal has a more interesting story than I expected. Singer Hughes is Reagan fan and NRA member. And, they just came from an Israel tour.
      German article about the band

    4. DirkH says:

      Video of back entry of concert venue as shots are fired, crowds flee in panic over dead bodies, people hang from windows not daring to jump. Filmed by a neighbour from the 2nd story with his cell phone.

      One of my most heated debates here… was about failure of anticipating the enemy.

      Obama, Hillary, The state Department failed to anticipate the Benghazi 9 /11 attack.

      Would I have been at HIGH alert… being the President of France, yesterday?

      What was the date yesterday? Friday the Thirteenth.

      Where did that date originate from? The killing of The Knights Templers.

      Where were The Knights from? France.

      Who did The Knights Templers battle? Saladin

      I leave it to you to decide if Benghazi should have been anticipated – –

      Just as I leave it to you to decide if the ALERT LEVEL should have been higher in France on Friday the Thirteenth?

      My heart and soul are in prayer for France.

    6. DirkH says:

      Hey, the band is rather good it turns out.

      We are reliving the holocaust because people are forced to forget it. Not allowed to talk about Nazis, or anything “bad”. So another one arises and the idiots are unaware and totally clueless.

      And there was a danger of forgetting 9-11. But Muslims will not allow that. They are the stupid bully who has to revel in their thuggish behavior, and so they remind us constantly of it. 9-11, 3-11, 7-7, now 11-13. No country is safe. Russia was attacked as well.

      It is time that we ignore the idiots preaching appeasement and political correctness. It is time to junk the baggage of idiots like Obama. The world knows this. That is why Russia is ascending. Putin may be many things, but one thing is for sure. He is no one’s fool. Obama is everyone’s fool. This is another act of Islamic terrorism. It matters not what is on their passport. Their words and actions say it all.

      But you will not hear that from Obama. He is going to call it another example of work place violence.

      Not all Japanese were warmongers. But all were targets. Not all Germans were Nazis. But all were targets. Until the warmongers and Nazis were defeated. That is the historical lesson that needs to be learned.

      • I. Lou Minotti says:

        Maybe rethink that “Obama is everyone’s fool,” Phil. I prefer to think that he’s one of the main cogs in the destruction of western ideals, and America in particular. Remember this?

        • philjourdan says:

          I do. But it just re-inforces the fact he is everyone’s fool. What are his accomplishments? The Arab Spring, and the Russian reboot. And what has that gotten? Russia has annexed part of Georgia and the Ukraine. 4 dead diplomats in Libya, a military coup in Egypt, thousands of dead Christians in Syria and Iraq.

          Yea, those are the accomplishments that any fool would be proud of. And there are a lot of Americans just as big of fools as they are supporting his SoS.

      Cultural suicide.

      • Me says:

        Yeah, and I said the pretty much the same to DirkH and how we can learn from it. Because we all can fall to the same mentality. And Pastor Lou, 😆 ya almost told the truth, Bravo Zulu! That must have been really really really tough to do! Bwaaaahahaha!

    9. I. Lou Minotti says:

      “When the Allahu Akbar boys opened fire, Paris was talking about the climate-change conference due to start later this month, when the world’s leaders will fly in to ‘solve’ a ‘problem’ that doesn’t exist rather than to address the one that does. But don’t worry; we already have a hashtag (#PrayForParis) and doubtless there’ll be another candlelight vigil of weepy tilty-head wankers. Because as long as we all advertise how sad and sorrowful we are, who needs to do anything? . . . . What it is is an attack on the west–on the civilization that built the modern world . . . . So screw the candlelight vigil.” ~Mark Steyn

    10. Latitude says:

      So now they are running around all over Europe….arresting people in “connection” with Paris

      Less than 24 hours later…….

      This is 100% bull crap….and impossible
      …they had to have known about these people before hand

      • DirkH says:

        It probably works like this: Yes they’ve known about Achmed and all his friends and all the friends of his friends and monitored all of them and knew they are all radical, and knew their radical preacher and the Mosque where they met. But all that the guys did was punch people in the face and rape a girl here and there or smash a car. Now, Achmed is one of the Paris boys blowing himself up. Ok, so let’s go through the file and arrest a dozen of his radical friends to appease the public.

        And import a million more Muslims.

    11. Latitude says:

      And import a million more Muslims…..

      Who doesn’t remember the great Irish Jihad?….the great Italian fatwa

    12. Lars P. says:

      more fun with iphones. I suppose the updated version already saves everything online…

    13. leftinflagstaff says:

      Who would have thought that wanting to be invaded might have repercussions.

    14. Latitude says:

      What a total crock of S***……why didn’t they bomb this crap sooner

      French fighter jets have dropped 20 bombs on the Islamic State (IS) stronghold of Raqqa in northern Syria.

      The planes hit a jihadi recruitment centre, training camp and arms depot run by the group, according to the French defence ministry.

    15. DirkH says:

      Notice how they always tell you after the masacres, I might be a progressive, but I’m not afraid? And, that when we start to change our behaviour in r eaction to islamic terror that then the terrorists have won so we shouldn’t?

      Well – it turns out the progressives ARE afraid – so afraid that they trample the memorial they themselves have erected when they think they hear gunshots. Oh, and given that they think they heard a gunshot, their reaction shows that they had no military training. They should have dropped to the ground.

      • kim2ooo says:

        BUT – BUT – It’s all about ME!!!!!!! Donja see?

        • philjourdan says:

          I see a bunch of whiny limp spined marxist that seek to play the victim at the expense of all else, including real threats. They do not even have a legitimate claim to victimhood, so they have to manufacture one. That is the new generation. The last one apparently.

          • kim2ooo says:

            Don’t give up on us …yet!

          • DirkH says:

            Phil, I don’t think this is a mass movement. It is fake, a media facade.

          • philjourdan says:

            As far as bodies, perhaps not. As far as mass as in distribution, it most certainly is. The whiners have spread to dozens of other campuses. So far, the only one that seems to have stood up to them is Perdue. Where the president told them the door they entered works both ways.

          • leftinflagstaff says:

            Ahh, the wondrous Age of the Hashtag. Use to be, the absurd was kept from mass movement status simply by limits in communication. Shared absurdity is now global, and instantaneous.

          • philjourdan says:

            hashtags are for morons with limited vocabulary. But then so it twitter, so it is redundant. Note how the first lady uses them (and thinks they make a difference). But they would go nowhere if they were not propagated by the Media. And the media uses them because they are morons as well.

            I have been working in networking for over 30 years. I was on the internet when it was all text based. But I am an old dog and do not learn the new tricks of twitter or facebook.

            Or more accurately, I am not a illiterate moron that cannot write coherent sentences without stupid abbreviations and moronic pound signs to convey what I mean.

          • leftinflagstaff says:

            And the young, still developing emotionally, have always been most susceptible. The troubling thing is, will this new access to mass immaturity, further weaken their emotional development.

    16. kim2ooo says:

      Obama’s G20 News Conference….. NOT even in THIS time…. can this man………………..GGGERRRRRRRRR

      Embarrassing the USA – even more.

    17. I. Lou Minotti says:

      Joshua learned the hard way. When the Gibeonites (Arabs and direct blood descendants of jealous Ishmael) were practicing taqqiya (deception) before it was called taqqiya, he and Israel’s elders failed to pray to Jehovah for wisdom and insight (cf. Josh. 9). The Judeo-Christian Western world is still paying the price. Obedience to His answer to prayer beforehand would have gone a long way toward alleviating the need for weeping prayers afterwards.

      God’s Word tells His believers that “life is in the blood.” A direct corollary that explains the actions of His enemies is that “death is in the blood.” They will never be changed unless defeated.

      Pray before any potential crisis, and prepare–kind of like this:
