First, from a friend of mine who fled Vienna with her family before WWII:
Some Tweets:What is the world coming to? The great synagogue of Paris has been closed for Shabbat services for the first time since WWll !
"@rinawolfson: So it wasn't just about cartoons after all. Or is buying kosher bread offensive and provocative too? #JeSuisJuif"

These killers use Palestine as a pretext. If a State of Palestine existed, they would be blowing it up for being too secular.

Do people not get this? Coulibaly killed four people in a Jewish deli BECAUSE they were in a Jewish deli.From the Times of Israel:

Amedy Coulibaly, the Islamist gunman who allegedly killed four people and held others hostage before he was killed by French security forces at a kosher store in Paris on Friday, reportedly told a French journalist at the height of the siege that he had deliberately chosen to target Jews.
“He explained his target, why this kosher store: because he was targeting Jews,” French BFM-TV journalist Sarah-Lou Cohen said. She said Coulibaly called the TV station soon after 3p.m. Paris time.
“We got a phone call” from Coulibaly, Cohen said. “He called us because in fact he was looking to contact the police.” Coulibaly spoke to BFM journalist Alexis Delahousse, she said, and told him that he and the Kouachi brothers had planned their attacks together. “He explained also why he did this: to defend oppressed Muslims, he said, notably in Palestine,” Cohen continued. “And finally he explained his target, why this kosher store: because he was targeting Jews.”More Tweets:
I remembered the four victims who were murdered at the Paris Kosher supermarket who would have celebrated Shabbat had they not been killed

RT @BillNeelyNBC: Paris prosecutor said Amedy #Coulibaly cased the supermarket the week before. Had identified it as a target. Long planned.

By forcing the closing of the Grand Paris Synagogue, radical Islam shares yet another trait as the Nazis. #CharlieHebdo #ParisAttacks
