Violence begets violence

It is too early to assess the true nature of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, ie. whether it is blowback from the conflicts across the Middle East or deliberately orchestrated to heighten tensions in order to bring in more draconian legislation, to close down dissent and increase control. Already there are reasons to be suspicious. Why would the perpetrators leave an ID card in the abandoned getaway vehicle?

Charlie Hebdo Paris shooting: Three prime suspects 'identified after one leaves ID card in abandoned getaway car' By Anthony Bond

This convenient find has allowed the authorities and media to create and reinforce their narrative in the immediate aftermath of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, The lucky find of the passport of hijacker Satam Al Suqami, a few blocks from the WTC in the aftermath of 9/11, was similarly implausible but invaluable in creating an immediate narrative which prevailed all the way through to the fictitious official report.

Another cause for suspicion is the supposed execution of the (Muslim) policeman during the getaway. Watch this one minute video clip:

A Timeline: Where did the Paris Shooters Get Their Weapons? By Tony Cartalucci

Heavily armed, well-trained gunmen executed what appears to be a well-planned attack in Paris, France, killing 12, including 2 police officers. Where did these terrorists get their weapons, training, political backing, funds, and inspiration?

Meanwhile, media and talking heads from both left and right condemn the attacks, claiming free speech is sacrosanct, as is Charlie Hebdo's right to offend Muslims. Clearly, free speech doesn't apply to offending Jews. This cartoon was pulled by the Sydney Morning Herald as Israel was massacring Palestinians.


There is no doubt, Charlie Hebdo is provocative. Prudence would suggest it is unwise to poke a hornets nest.
