French attack raises fears of anti-Islamist sentiment in Europe

There are growing concerns that the attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo will fuel anti-Islamist sentiment, not only in France, but also in the rest of Europe. CCTV's Jack Parrock reported the story from Paris.

“There’s a planned anti-Islam protest for Jan. 18 in Paris, we’ll see how the turnout for that is, it may grow or it may be watered down, and the reaction may go the other way,” Ben McPartland, country editor of the Local France website said.

French President Francois Hollande has called for solidarity in the fight against terrorism. However the leader of France’s far right Front Nationale party is scheduled to meet Hollande, and there are fears the attack may generate more sympathy for her anti-immigration stance, but it’s still unclear whether that will translate into votes.

“It depends whether this call for unity from Hollande, from Sarkozy will win out over the extremist reaction that we might see,” McPartland added.

At the scene of the crime, many have gathered to pay their respects, but the response from the far right, in this largely socialist country, seems much more uncertain.

    NOW If you think Muslims are crazy then what makes the liberals who let them into Europe?

    The height of supremacy seeks to change other cultures and nations, the liberal believes all nations need to be westernised which is in itself racist.

    The liberal is the problem.

    Muslims have been doing this for 1,415 years in their own countries.

    It was the liberal who enticed them into Europe saying that if they live here they will become like us.

    Muslims can do this all day long in their own countries, its their culture, their religion i dont seek to change them. Its them. But i object to liberals opening up borders to the same people who then enforce and try to enforce the rest of civil society to become Muslims.

    This problem is squarely on the left liberal politicians and not on the Muslims. Its like taking a wild animal out the bush and then wanting to shoot it because it attacks you.

    These politicians interfered with their culture and our culture trying to force us to assimilate.

    SPREAD THE WORD – IT IS THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENTS WHO ARE TO BLAME FOR THIS SITUATION – THEY ARE CRAZIER THAN THE PEOPLE THEY LET IN.
