The story is still unfolding as I type, but at least 12 people are dead with others injured by two heavily-armed hooded gunmen in central Paris. Crying “Allahu Akbar” and shouting “We have avenged the Prophet,” they attacked the Paris office of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo.
The two jihadists managed to get away in a car, and are now on the loose in Paris. The magazine had criticized Islam in the past, and was working on a piece on Islam as the attack took place. As one report states,
Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad in 2012, forcing France to temporarily close its embassies and schools in more than 20 countries amid fears of reprisals. Its offices were also firebombed in November 2011 after publishing a caricature of Muhammad on its cover. The magazine’s last tweet before the shooting showed a cartoon of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of terrorist organization ISIS.
Of major concern is how the dhimmis in the mainstream media are covering this. Already we are hearing over and over the same old baloney which follows every Islamic terror attack in the West: this is just another lone wolf attack, it is not clear why it happened, and “Islamophobia” must somehow be to blame

More than one clueless wonder (what the MSM refers to as an ‘expert’) has said words to this effect: ‘It is too early to tell who did this and what was their motivation’. Hogwash. We know exactly what their motivation was – they have clearly told us what it was.
In the meantime, a new book which has just appeared is much more relevant and prophetic that what many people might think. As one report states:
The BBC’s Hugh Schofield in Paris reports on the publication of a provocative new book which depicts France as an Islamicised country where universities are compelled to teach the Koran, women are made to wear the veil and polygamy is lawful.
In the year 2022, France has continued its slow collapse and a Muslim party leader takes over as the country’s new president. Women are encouraged to leave their jobs and unemployment falls. Crime evaporates in the banlieues. Veils become the norm and polygamy is authorised. Universities are made to teach the Koran.
Torpid and decadent, the population reverts to its collaborationist instincts. It accepts the new Islamist France.
Houellebecq says. Such is the characteristically provocative plot of the new novel by France’s most famous living author Michel Houellebecq.
Soumission (Submission) goes on sale on Wednesday, but for a week now the arguments have been raging.
Is the book anti-Islamic scare-mongering in the guise of literature? Does the excuse that it is fiction have any validity if the book gives succour to the far-right?
Or on the contrary, is Houellebecq simply doing the job of an artist: holding a mirror to the world, exaggerating perhaps but honestly telling the deeper truths? The row is all the more intense because Islam and identity are already at the heart of a fierce national debate in France.
No, this is not fear-mongering or the fantasy of the so-called far right. This is becoming reality all around much of Europe and England. This is exactly where the West is heading. And given all the Islamophilic foolishness being uttered by our dhimmi commentariat over this jihad in Paris, it will happen perhaps even sooner than this novelist imagines.
