1. French mosque attacked with what has to be the cheapest discount grenades available from French military surplus.
2. Hundreds gather in Turkey to show solidarity with the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
3. For the second night in a row, people gather in France to show solidarity with the victims of Charlie Hebdo and solidarity with freedom of speech.
(Is it possible that muslims got tired of waiting for the backlash that never happens so they started one themselves? Certainly the case in at least one of the Swedish mosque attacks and many of the English ones)
5. One CNN host actually had the guts to do what needs doing and show one of the toons
(Just to put this in perspective. When a terrorist launches an attack from a single house and Israel knocks it down for security purposes or even punitive ones, but its actually the house that a terrorist operated from, the whole world flips out. Egypt is going to move an entire Gazanian city farther from its border for security purposes and no one is likely to even know about it.)
CAIRO (Ma’an) — The Egyptian authorities have decided to remove the city of Rafah on the borders with the Gaza Strip completely, says the governor of North Sinai district Abd al-Fattah Harhour.
In a news conference Wednesday, Harhour said it would be necessary to remove Rafah city completely in order to create a buffer zone on the borders with the Gaza Strip.
“A new Rafah city is being established with residential zones appropriate to the nature and traditions of the residents of Rafah.”
He confirmed that engineering units have already been asked to start work on the new city.
