En souvenir #JeSuisCharlieHebdo

The Charlie Hebdo shooting resulted in the unfortunate death of 12 people.

  1. One whom was cartoonist Elsa Cayat  of Jewish decent, the only female victim, 1960 – 7 January 2015.

Other cartoonists;

  • Jean Cabut known as Cabu,  1938 – 7 January 2015.
  •  Stéphane Charbonnier known as Charb, 13 January 1938 – 7 January 2015.
  • Philippe Honoré, known as Honoré  25 November 1941 – 7 January 2015.
  • Bernard Verlhac known as Tignous , 1957 – 7 January 2015.
  • Georges Wolinski 28 June 1934 – 7 January 2015.

Other staff:

  • Bernard Maris, French economist, writer and journalist.
  • Mustapha Ourad, copy editor
  • Charb’s bodyguard
  • Sodexo maintenance worker

also one civilian and guest of Charlie Hebdo as well as two police officers

Yesterday there were two hostages standoffs by the same suspects one in Kosher deli and another in a printing. Unfortunately there were four additional victims in the Jewish supermarket. The hostage standoff in the printing plant fortunately had no deadly end.

Not only is this a proof that terrorism keps getting closer, most importantly it was an attack and threat on what many countries considers basic human rights. In a democracy you have freedom and right of expression as well as freedom of the press. No matter if you supported Charlie Hebdo or not those democratic rights must be safeguarded and defended.

A solidarity march in Paris, France was organized for the world to show solidarity with France, French Jews and the democratic rights of a democracy. Many European world leaders marched alongside the French president Francious Hollande.

Je Suis Charlie, Je Suis Juif, Je Suis Ahmed (je ne  suis) nous ne sommes pas peur.
