Over 100 people killed in Paris ‘terror’ attacks
The cycle of violence continues.
Saw the strings of breaking news of the tragedy at AFP twitter.
The most retweeted news was about the attackers shouting "AllahuAkbar!" as they massacred their victims.
Muslims will be blamed again, obviously.
Initial reports indicated that the carnage is linked to the murderous group Islamic State.
This could be what they had threatened the West all these while - that they will retaliate for the air campaign and other material supports given by the West to the Syrian and Iraqi governments in the fight against them.
I'm quite sure IS will come up with their own justification for the attack.
They will among others show graphic videos of Syrian and Iraqi civilians killed in Western air attacks in areas of their control in those two countries.
I also think they will carry out more such terror attacks in other Western cities.
They had proven that they can do it and they will do it again.
I hope the Malaysian authorities will learn something out of this tragedy and tighten security measures to stop some of our own terror-inclined citizens from committing such atrocities.
Scores of people have so far been detained for terror-linked activities over the past months in this country, but I believe more could be done.
We need to uproot the whole ideology of terror from our society.
All those so-called religious people and politicians who tried to be popular by preaching tolerance for terrorism must be stopped.
There is no justification for the murder of innocent people.
The terror attack in Paris today also reminds me of a good friend who died earlier this year.
He was killed in a terror-related incident in a neighboring country.
It was a very sad day for me when I received the news of his death.
It was all so senseless.
My heart goes to those who lost their loved ones in such a manner.
