President Hollande is wrong. This has everything to do with Islam. Ignore that fact and the problem will never be solved. — Douglas Murray (@DouglasKMurray) January 9, 2015
NY Post The two Charlie Hebdo massacre suspects were killed by cops following a hostage situation north of Paris on Friday — while a second standoff with cops miles away ended with that gunman dead along with at least four of his captives. Multiple news reports said that brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi were killed after they ran from a printing plant near Charles de Gaulle Airport and opened fire on security forces with Kalashnikov rifles — the same type of weapons they used to kill 12 people in the newspaper attack Wednesday.
And police shouted “We’ve got him” at a kosher shop in Paris where the third terrorist was holding several hostages, including women and children. French media reported that four of the hostages in the grocery had been killed, though several others safely escaped. The suspect in the grocery siege, Amedy Coulibaly, was also killed. He is believed to be the gunman who fatally shot a female police officer in a Paris suburb Thursday, and was part of the same terror cell the Kouachi brothers belonged to.
At least one woman could be seen running from the shop after a series of five loud and blinding explosions that appeared to be stun grenades, and news reports said several hostages were safely rescued.
The terrorists had been facing off against thousands of French security forces as the city shut down a famed Jewish neighborhood and scrambled to protect residents and tourists from further attacks.
Minutes before the storming, the gunman in the Paris kosher grocery store had threatened to kill his five hostages if French authorities launched an assault on the two brothers, a police official said.
Trying to fend off further attacks, the Paris mayor’s office shut down all shops along Rosiers Street in the city’s famed Marais neighborhood in the heart of the tourist district. Hours before the Jewish Sabbath, the street is usually crowded with shoppers — French Jews and tourists alike. The street is also only a kilometer (a half-mile) away from Charlie Hebdo’s offices.
At the kosher grocery near the Porte de Vincennes neighborhood in Paris, the gunman burst in shooting just a few hours before the Jewish Sabbath began, declaring, “You know who I am,” the official recounted. The attack came before sundown when the store would have been crowded with shoppers. The official said the gunman was also believed responsible for the roadside killing of a Paris policewoman Thursday.
We must stand by French Jews as we stood by French cartoonists and police #JeSuisJuif
