Q: 6 attack sites in Paris

^6 attack sites and over 160 dead from a terrorist attack in Paris today

at least 3 Chinese among the murdered

They have caught 2 of the Bastard PIGs so far and shot dead 4 others

This is still a fluid event and there are still Bad guys on the loose

    Complex situation? Agree

    You cant just open the borders, without having a plan to integrate refugees, specially where many countries in Europe have a high unemployment rate? Agree

    Terrorist were terrorizing way before the refugees situation(9-11, Madrid,london, syria)? Agree

     

    As i said, its a complex situation regarding the rfugees, you cant let them in without a plan A,B,C,D and you cant also close the doors to them, who are running from death and that are bringing it now and the last 10 years to our modern socicieties.

    'Schengen zone' isn't open zone anymore, either.

     

    Some reports are saying this is a response to France, because flying sorties in Syria.

     

    Where did you get 'they've caught 2...alive....' (link, pls)? 

     

     

     

     

     

    Russian report:

    https://www.rt.com/news/321875-paris-france-shooting-victims/

    icnif77:

    I guess, you were reading report about 'Paris C. Hebdo attack' in Jan, 2015, when police caught 2 attackers alive.

     

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/charlie-hebdo-attack-suspects-dead-hostage-safe-french/story?id=28105639

     

    No reports about 'attackers caught alive yesterday'....150 dead and all attackers killed too. French military moved in, border closed.

      If one good thing can come of this it is control of all the refugees flooding into Europe. Perhaps France and the rest of Europe will realise the threat of Islam and do something about it.

      cub:

      u are right lord but what can they do about it now? islam muslums are entrenched in france its way too late But they did welcome islam/muslims in with open arms didnt they? now they are reaping what they have sowed but its too late now!1 The usa will be like this and its a matter of time and its not a ''if'' but ''when'' The word 'terrorist'' has a reason they are called terrorists! Of course france is as liberal as it can be! maybe france needs to ban guns!

      The USA has built a network of "camps" throughout the country. They are called FEMA camps. They are designed to detain [aka imprison people without their consent]. They are more of less empty at the moment. Should ANY perceived threat to the US govt and/or the populace occur, these camps will be used to round up massive amounts of people.

      Open the doors to our country to anyone, they said.

      It'll work out fine, they said.

       

      I'm not against immigration, but I really think they should run in-depths background checks and psychological analysis for every single applicant.

       

      Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Marine Le Pen actually wins the next elections with what happened this year...

      these are the people that think they will go to paradise if they martyr them selves. Where they will have their way with 72 virgins and live in a land where there are rivers of milk and honey. Amazing what brainwashing can do. Their lives must be really shitty if they would rater blow themselves up than live. This land of Allah can't be so great, look at how many people are trying to leave it. They are ruled by Mullahs that are religious fanatics, drunk with power.

      Firstly - regarding  the whole 'see waht happens when you let in refugees" BS...

       

      "French national" and an Egyptian passport - just 2 of the suspects for this act...

       

      So, yes, I'd go with ignorance on this!

       

      NOT just refugees.

       

      The passport of the refugee who went through Greece - perhaps, let's wait and see after they've actually done with identifications... no? Need to go blow up some towel-heads first... just like the yanks did after 9/11??? Yeah, I thought so!

       

      Let's try looking at this another way....

       

      France takes in, say 20,000 refugees, of which a few (say, 10) are terrorists... who end up killing, say 200 people.

       

      The obvious response would be "close the borders - let's not take in any more refugees"....

       

      Meaning - the lives of 200 French people are VASTLY more important than the lives of the other 20,000 (-200) of those refugess...

       

      Wait til the French Foreign Legion gets in there... that'll wipe out ISIS.... and why the fk did it take THIS long for them to do anything in the first place?????

       

      As Assad said - yeah what happened in France is bad... we've been facing it for the last FIVE YEARS!!!!

       

      AIDS in Africa... who cares? 1 person dies in America - oh crap, this is serious!

       

      Same with Ebola... Bird Flu... etc etc...

       

      We're all concerned about how nasty the Taliban are towards women... guess what - they'd been doIng that for CENTURIES! (and, we'll turn a blind eye to what happens in other Middle East countries, like Saudi... cos we still want their oil).

       

      It's all Rhetoric and hyperbole (and ignorance)... until it's in your own backyard..

      '....We (West) kill innocent people.....' There are some pics on the link, but 'no load' on my BB.

      ‘We kill innocent people’: Bataclan survivor says Paris horror made him rethink West’s actions

      Published time: 22 Nov, 2015 08:59

       

      Edited time: 22 Nov, 2015 11:42

       

      “This was the Apocalypse.” These are the words of Pierre Janaszak, a TV and radio presenter, who spoke to RT after experiencing the massacre at France’s Bataclan theater. He says the ordeal has changed his view of the world forever.

      Pierre Janaszak, a TV and radio presenter, went to the Bataclan with his sister on that fateful Friday evening. He says he just wanted to make her happy because she is a huge fan of “The Eagles of Death Metal,” the US band that was performing in the Paris theater on November 13. 
       
      Pierre was on the left side of the balcony in front of the stage – drinking beer and having fun. When he first heard the shooting, about 50 minutes into the gig, he thought it was “part of the show.”

      All of a sudden, a woman who was in charge of the lighting for the show turned the lights on. The gunman shot at her and she fell down. Pierre says the woman turned the lights on purpose to ensure that the concertgoers knew they were under attack from terrorists. 

      “She’s a hero for me,” Pierre told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze in an interview, adding that the woman was killed.

      Then there was panic.
       
      “I saw, one guy with this gun – don’t know if it was a Kalashnikov, it was so huge, and was doing like this — [imitates act of shooting] just on everybody,” Pierre recalled.  
       
      “They were at the main entrance and the security, because they were there to kill everybody, so you can’t go over there, and everybody was just shouting like, ‘Don’t go this way, don’t go this way,’ they were just shooting, you could hear the guns.”
       
      Pierre says that everybody was scared to the point that initially no voices could be heard, no sounds, nothing. People just tried to escape.
       
      “Because, if someone wanted to go [run] away, even if terrorist wasn’t in the room – they hear someone moving, ‘boom’, they kill them. I’ve got a lot of friends [lying] just on the floor, with the bodies on them, and with the blood everywhere, like they’re in an Apocalyptic film - something you can’t believe it’s possible.”Pierre says he eventually lost track of time. “You know, you don’t think about the time. One minute can be 10 minutes or one second – you don’t understand...."
       
      “I just ran. I ran, under the chairs, just there, you know, it’s impossible, nobody can do that, but we just do that. I took my sister, because I wanted to protect her, I said ‘Come on, come on, we have to run.’”

       
      Pierre says he is haunted by the memories of the nightmare unfolding right before his eyes, and suspects that those who were forced to play dead amidst the pile of corpses have been completely psychologically broken.

      “We were just like three hundred, running, and you walk on everybody, you don’t care about anybody,” the survivor of the Bataclan attack said.
       
      “There was a pregnant woman – I remember that – and everybody was just running [over] her... And everybody was just scared. This was the Apocalypse, everybody was just saying: “No, no, no, down!”, and you hear this sound of the guns, they were closer and closer, so you don’t know where to go.”

      The young man then lost his sister in the ensuing chaos, as the crowd ran for the narrow exit with stairs leading to the musicians’ changing room. He didn’t know if she was dead or alive until they were reunited after siege had ended. But before that he had to go through a horrifying ordeal, hiding just a wall away from terrorists with a few other people in the toilet. 

       
      At one point the terrorists spoke to three hostages – including one woman, who couldn’t stop crying.
       
      “Why are you crying? Why are you crying?” the jihadists asked. 
       
      “Because I’m scared.”
       
      “You don’t have to be scared, you will be dead in few minutes, so don’t worry.”
       
      “This is horrible. Because, what can you do?” Pierre recalls, adding that the girl instantly stopped sobbing. The terrorist said: “It’s because of Francois Hollande, because he attacks our countries.”

      Pierre says that despite his disgust for the terrorists’ actions, the Bataclan attack made him reassess certain things about his country’s foreign policies, and realize that the ‘collateral damage’ in far-away military campaigns is made up of real, ordinary people being killed. 
       
      “I want to say something really horrible, and, again, my thoughts go to the families of the victims, but our governments are just doing what they think it’s good, but they kill innocent people – that’s true, and we know that it is sad, but we don’t think about that, we just think about ourselves. So… Yes. He’s right. That’s not an excuse or something, I hate them, and I don’t want to say good things about them, but those words are true, we kill innocent people all the time, because we just care about things that we think that they are good, like Western way of life. Everybody can live like they want, if they respect each other – that’s all.”
       
      Does he think another attack could happen again?
       
      “Oh yeah, of course. Before, when I was outside, I’m not going to lie, if I was with someone wearing maybe the typical radical Muslim thing with beard like this – before, I was scared, because of the judgment. I said: ‘He may be like them.’ And this is the beginning of the end. The judgment is the beginning of the end.”

      But according to Pierre, there is a way out of this vicious circle of hatred.

      “I don’t have to do that, I’m not a monster, I’m not going to play the same game that Islamists do. I’m going to say to everybody that I love them … I’m sure if you’re so positive and all those things – you can give an energy, good vibration to everybody. I’m sure it can be something good, and I’m sure we can change a world like this.”

      A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
      A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
