My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those murdered in Friday nights terrorist attacks in Paris. France has shown humanity and compassion for the many Syrian refugees moving to France or crossing through its border, so one has to wonder why shouts of “for Syria” and “ala-Akbar” were heard as the terrorists shot and killed so many.
I am presently working on my last posting before leaving for Texas and wanted to maintain my neutrality towards any national or world news, but this attack has me perplexed enough to comment. One must wonder ‘why Paris’, what has the nation of France done to warrant such a long planned well thought out attack? What possibly could be the benefit from attacking civilians in France? I am sure those who masterminded this attack knew it would inflame the world community to even greater resolve to bring down terrorists organizations, so why seek out more vengeance?
I am sorry to say this old curmudgeon has no answers only consternation at what may lurk even deeper in the minds of those who rule these terrorists organizations. The fact that it was reported today, Saturday, that one of the terrorists killed had a Syrian refugee ID on him solidifies my opinion that unbridled acceptance of thousands of Syrian refugees is an invitation to disaster.
We can not just open the border
and not expect to see
like what happened in Paris.
