Yes along with 4 Jew hostages. He said he was targeting Jews.
I just hope the senseless killing is finished.
I don't know who said it first but I like that quote of "if your religion requires you to kill people then start with yourself".
What a nightmare.
The other killed terrorist today was from the same "network" than the other two and committed his attacks/killings based on the Charlie Hebdo attack. It's unsure yet if they coordinated themselves or not. They knew each other though.
I keep waiting for a huge street March from an Islamic community somewhere around the world denouncing these attacks. And it's not happening, which is challenging everything I value and defend during these times :-(
This world is a scary place atm.
If I was a Muslim at the moment I wouldn't want to take part in any large public gatherings - too many red neck yobbo's out there. And look at that poor Muslim bride who put flowers down at Martin Place - the grief she copped on social media with people saying she was just trying to get attention was a disgrace.
You're right. I suppose I was thinking about what can be done to stop these sorts of people, and all I could think was a very clear 'don't do these things in my name' sort of thing from people that they might actually respect.
But then I thought about the Westboro Uniting Church, and no amount of Christian protests could change their beliefs... It just makes me so sad, and the wider impact on the Muslim community is just awful.
