France has raised vipers in its bosom!

Given the fact that many of these youthful enemies of France were indeed born on French soil, it is long past time for France and other western European countries to redefine what citizenship actually means. Regardless of their birthplaces, these children, along with their parents and grandparents, should be deported en masse to their countries of origin. Arguably, one can make an exception for those willing to apostatize from Islam both vocally before witnesses and by sworn affadavit.

Now what?

If the French lack the political stomach to deport Muslims, one alternative puts to good use the actual stomachs of French gastronomes:

THE PERFECT WAY FOR THE FRENCH TO PROVE THEY ARE CHARLIE

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler
Wednesday, 14 January 2015

Millions of French men and women are proclaiming Je suis Charlie – I am Charlie – as we all know.  But saying it is not proving it.  That must be done by doing, by concrete action.

Yes, they can agitate and demand their government do what’s necessary – such as:

*Eliminate all Non-Moslem No-Go Zones in France;  apply normal police authority to them as anywhere else.

*Eliminate Islamic Sharia Law as having any binding legal authority in France.  Any Moslem demanding to live under Sharia Law will be provided with a one-way ticket to the Islamic country of his choice where Sharia prevails.

*Terminate all welfare programs and assistance of any kind to all non-French citizens.

*Allow rifle, shotgun, and handgun ownership and concealed and open carry by anyone over 30 years old who is a natural born Frenchman who can pass a criminal background and shooting test.

*Change any criminal and civil laws that impair self defense and defense of others. Adopt the Castle Doctrine which legalizes killing burglars, robbers, muggers, car thieves, arsonists, and other  traditional thugs.

Good luck on their Euroweenie government doing any of this.  So let’s focus on what Frenchfolk can do themselves. And how perfect it would be for them to prove they are Charlie through that ultimate expression of their culture – food.

The timing couldn’t be better.  There’s an ingredient in French cuisine that no self-respecting French chef would be without, yet strikes horror in the hearts of both Moslems and Moochelle Obama together with her fascist food police. You can’t get better than that.  We are talking about lard – rendered pig fat.  And guess what?

Lard Is The New Health Food.  Quite seriously.

That’s according to Food & Wine (the link above – it’s a must-read if only because it’s so entertainingly written).  Also according to the British lefties of the London GuardianConsider Lard – and the US lefties at HuffPo10 Reasons You Should Be Cooking with Lard (another must-read for explanatory clarity).

What used to be an insult synonymous with gluttony and cardiac arrest, lard now has gone healthy gourmet.  The most health-conscious now demand non-hydrogenated artisanal lard.  Google “non-hydrogenated lard” and you’ll get 45,000 hits – among them links to various suppliers.

There’s even a cookbook out now celebrating it:  Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother’s Secret Ingredient.

Thus it should be an easy sell to persuade restaurants everywhere in France to cook with lard, every bakery to prepare their goods with lard, for every Frenchman and lady to demand their morning croissant baked with lard.  Accept no substitutes!

“By any estimation, lard is a healthier fat than butter,” notes the Guardian and gives the facts why.  A croissant made with lard instead of butter is amazingly tastier.  You’ve never actually eaten real French Fries unless cooked in lard, for that was how they originated before lard’s demonization. This enables every McDonalds in France to brag their pommes frites are now fried in healthy lard rather than industrial oil.

The French proving they are Charlie with lard is a real hat trick: 1) They get to claim they are advocating cooking with lard for health reasons, not to be anti-Islamic (wink, wink, chortle).  2) Any restaurant that cooks with lard guarantees Moslem-free dining for its patrons.  3) What they are eating really does taste more delicious and really is healthier for them.

The Times of Israel has the story:

(h/t: coldwarrior of Blogmocracy)

The US Consulate in Jerusalem is training a force of 35 Palestinians from East Jerusalem to serve as armed guards, particularly for consular trips to the West Bank’s Area A, which is off-limits to Israelis, it was reported on Wednesday.

The arrangement violates a 2011 agreement between Israel and the consulate, the Hebrew daily Yedioth Ahronoth stated, whereby only IDF combat veterans would be authorized to carry arms as consulate guards.

“The consulate was authorized to keep roughly 100 handguns for security staff, on condition that they be either American diplomats or Israeli army veterans,” the paper’s Itamar Eichner wrote.

Additionally, Israeli guards at the consulate alleged that the Palestinians were being trained with firearms in Jericho at a Palestinian Preventative Security base and in the United States.

Regional Security Officer Dan Cronin, Israeli guards claimed, “is in effect setting up an armed Palestinian militia in the consulate. They are being trained with weapons, in Krav Maga, and tactical driving. It’s irresponsible. Who can guarantee that such weapons in the hands of Palestinians won’t spread to terror?”

The US Consulate denied a Times of Israel request to speak with Cronin and declined to directly address the assertions in the article. “The US Consulate General in Jerusalem has full confidence in the professionalism of its staff,” a US official said. “We do not discuss the security of our diplomatic missions, but note there are many inaccuracies in the story.”

“In addition,” he said, “we coordinate fully and regularly with local authorities.”

He would not detail the alleged inaccuracies.

The Israeli security guards, three of whom reportedly quit in protest, asserted that the consulate also keeps machine guns and rifles on the premises, further violating the alleged agreement, and that one senior staff member had served time in Israeli prison for membership in the Fatah organization.

Thanks to blogger A. D. Kendall at Money Jihad, we know that AQAP (al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula) funded and trained the Charlie Hebdo attackers.

But from whom did AQAP get that money in the first place?

A. D. Kendall: 2011: France may have paid AQAP $12m ransom

In March 2011, three French citizens working for the Lyon-based charity Triangle Génération Humanitaire traveled to Hadramawt, Yemen. Agricultural engineer Pierre Perrault, age 29 at the time; fellow engineer and wife Leah Romary, age 25; and water treatment specialist Amelie Morgaut, age 32, intended to assist local authorities with infrastructure improvement projects, which they did until late May of that year until they were abducted by terrorist-affiliated tribesmen.

Perrault, Romary and Morgaut remained in captivity for six months in the typical fashion of kidnappers in that region of the world, which involves transferring hostages among different groups and locations.  But the strings were ultimately being pulled by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). In July, AQAP demanded $12 million from France for the aid workers’ release. French officials didn’t immediately comply, but began third party negotiations with AQAP through interlocutors of the sultan of Oman.

In November, the negotiations concluded. A “senior Yemeni tribal mediator”confirmed to the Associated Press that a ransom had been paid for the hostages’ release. The formal payment was made jointly by a Yemeni businessman living in Oman, Ahmed Ben Férid al-Souraimeh, and by the government of Oman, but Oman was most likely reimbursed by French intelligence behind the scenes.

In our opinion, the take-home lesson is that non-Muslim countries should not send aid workers to Muslim-held countries or territories, where they will be exposed to the risk of kidnapping. Christian missionaries who go to Muslim-held regions know that they go there at their own risk, and if they make that choice, they must accept a substantial likelihood of martyrdom. No government should pay ransom to jihadis.

Some background from September 9, 2006:

Ynet News: Saudi Arabia bans dogs

Islamic police prohibit sales of dogs and cats, say pets are evil Western influence

Saudi Arabia’s religious police, normally tasked with chiding women to cover themselves and ensuring men attend mosque prayers, are turning to a new target: cats and dogs.

The police have issued a decree banning the sale of the pets, seen as a sign of Western influence.

The prohibition on dogs may be less of a surprise, since conservative Muslims despise dogs as unclean. But the cat ban befuddled many,

since Islamic tradition holds that the Prophet Muhammad loved cats — and even let a cat drink from his ablutions water before washing himself for prayers.

The religious police, known as the Muttawa, have the role of enforcing Saudi Arabia’s strict Islamic code. Its members prowl streets and malls, ensuring unmarried men and women do not mix, confronting women they feel are not properly covered or urging men to go to prayers.

But the government also gives the Muttawa wide leeway to enforce any rules they deem necessary to uphold the social order.

The decree — which applies to the Red Sea port city of Jiddah and the holy city of Mecca — bans the sale of cats and dogs because “some youths have been buying them and parading them in public,” according to a memo from the Municipal Affairs Ministry to Jiddah’s city government.

The memo, obtained by The Associated Press, urges city authorities to help enforce the ban.

Pet owning is not common in the Arab world, though dogs are kept for hunting and guarding. In large cities around the Middle East, stray dogs often wander the streets and are considered pests. Street cats are also plentiful, and people will often feed them or play with them — but it isn’t a widespread custom to keep one in the home, and many cannot afford it.

However, in the past decades, owning dogs or cats has become a fashion statement among Saudis. Showing off a Doberman, pit bull or fancy breed of feline has became a status symbol.

Conservatives decry the trend as a Western influence, just like the fast food, shorts, jeans and pop music that have become more common in the kingdom, which is ruled by the puritanical Wahhabi interpretation of Islam. They say it should be fought because it is threatening the fabric of Gulf nations.

“One bad habit spreading among our youths is the acquisition of dogs and showing them off in the streets and malls,” wrote Aleetha al-Jihani in a letter to Al-Madina newspaper. “There’s no doubt that such a matter makes one shudder.”

“Then what’s the point of dragging a dog behind you?” he added. “This is blind emulation of the infidels.”

The decree has not been enforced yet, according to several pet shop owners and veterinary clinics in Jiddah. It applies only to selling dogs and cats, and there was no sign the Muttawa would confiscate pets.

The decree did not say whether the religious police would try to stop people from appearing in public with a dog or cat — or whether owners would be allowed to sell puppies or kittens born to their pets.

The ban distressed cat and dog lovers. Some have wondered why the religious police are focusing on this issue when the country has far more important challenges, such as terrorism and unemployment.

“I was shocked when I heard about it,” said Fahd al-Mutairi, who owns 35 cats. “What was even more shocking was to hear that the ban came from an authority that has nothing to do with such an issue.”

“I would understand if it came from the Health Ministry or anybody charged with ensuring pets coming from outside do not carry diseases,” added the 23-year-old flower-shop owner.

No other Arab country restricts pet ownership. But in

Iran, ruled by Shiite clerics, religious police sometimes harass people seen outside with their dogs. Last year, Iranian police told people not to bring their dogs out in public, but the order was never backed up by law and dog-owners widely ignored it.

The inclusion of cats in the Saudi ban puzzled many, since there’s no scorn for them as there is for dogs in Islamic tradition.

One of the prophet’s closest companions was given the name Abu Huraira, Arabic for “the father of the kitten,” because he always carried a kitten and took care of it.

A number of hadiths — traditional stories of the prophet — show Muhammad encouraging people to treat cats well.

Once, he let a cat drink from the water he was going to use for his ablutions before prayers. Another time, Muhammad said a woman who kept a cat locked up without feeding it would go to hell.

Dogs — considered dirty and dangerous — are less lucky. According to one hadith, Muhammad said a Muslim loses credit for one good deed each day he keeps a dog and even said dogs should be killed unless used for hunting or protection.

Still, in another instance, he said that a prostitute who carried water in her slipper to a thirsty dog would go to heaven, her sins forgiven because of her kindness.

“All these things considered, it is obviously not against our religion or our tradition to have dogs and cats as pets,” columnist Abeer Mishkhas wrote in the Arab News.

“I sincerely hope (authorities) will leave the cats and dogs alone and concentrate on what should be their real business,” she added.

Al-Mutairi said his friends and relatives cannot understand his passion for his cats, which cost him $1,000 a month to feed and care for.

“I tell them this is not a Western innovation,” he said. “Our religion says we should take care of animals.”

Emirates 24/7: Saudi man hunting dogs kills himself

A Saudi man accidentally killed himself as he pulled his gun to shoot at stray dogs passing near his house in the Gulf Kingdom.

The man was in his car when a herd of barking dogs ran past his house in the southern Saudi town of Baha, according to Sabq daily.

“He crawled out of his car’s window and wanted to climb to the roof of the vehicle when his gun accidentally fired…the bullet hit him under the chin and penetrated his skull,” the paper said, quoting police spokesman Lt Colonel Saad Tirad.

Dead jihadi confronts 72 Virginians...America's Founding Fathers

Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop

Dear leaders,

I voted for your ‘Team Australia” at the last election. I could hardly wait to get rid of the previous Labor Governments after seeing the economic mess they had made here, as well as the mess made by their disastrous immigration policies, including the loss of lives caused by it.

It’s true you have stopped the boats but you have failed miserably in stopping our Fifth Column: the ABC – a tax-payer funded organisation that would love to see you fail and disappear into political oblivion!

As I read many blogs and websites I KNOW that many people can’t wait for you to do this.

I think, if you knew the ratings figures, you would find ‘our’ ABC is not very popular, and most Australians are not keen to see their tax dollars paying for their own destruction.

You had sufficient reasons – we are broke! The ABC/SBS can easily find sponsors for funding, and should there not be enough – well…tough! No one will miss them, will they?

This past week we have seen all too clearly just what Muslim immigration can do.

Whilst Australia has a lower percentage of Muslims it can be assumed that it only needs a small number of people to create havoc as we saw in the Lindt Coffee Shop in Sydney recently.

It is clear to me that whenever there is such an incident more often than not the perpetrators are Islamic.

Oooops, I said the ‘I’ word !!!!

If I can say it why can’t you? Why are you and other world leaders afraid of this word?

You have now begun to call ISIS the “Daesh” or “The Khorasan Group” thinking perhaps, that the majority of Australians won’t catch on, or are you avoiding offending the local Muslim community?

Why? Many of them offend us on a regular basis. We get no apology or reassurances from them – quite the contrary.

Sometimes I get a fanciful notion about conspiracy theories. and when I do I can’t help but wonder whether some faceless cabal from the UN comes to visit each newly-elected leader just to tell them: Do as we say, or else?

Please tell me I am wrong and foolish but it certainly looks that way, or something like it.

Somehow the UN has omitted telling Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Benjamin Netanyahu how to play by their rules.

Of course we all know Mr Netanyahu is World Enemy #1 in the UN’s eyes, and Vladimir Putin is The #1 enemy of NATO and the EU which is why they have spent so much time making him look positively evil.

Putin and Netanyahu have problems with Islam and they call it out when they see it.

It was the incident at Beslan that helped get Putin as much popularity as he has now. Both these leaders actually care about their citizens…a new concept, I know!

When you were going to ‘shirt-front Putin’ I saw a red flag. I know you were concerned about a missing plane and our citizens but we didn’t have enough information to jump to any definite conclusions.It showed me you were at one with the UN.

Now we have just witnessed two atrocities in France: the murder of cartoonists and the murder of hostages at a Kosher (that means Jewish) grocery store.

There has been an outpouring of support for the cartoonists: the Jewish hostages not so much!

It isn’t that long ago since WW2 ended and yet we are seeing an amazing resurgence of anti-Semitism which is most alarming.

Here’s the full list of leaders who met in France today – many have been instrumental in ruining their own countries:

French President Francois Hollande
German Chancellor Angela Merkel
British Prime Minister David Cameron
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy
Romanian President Klaus Iohannis
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker
European Parliament president Martin Schulz
European Union president Donald Tusk
Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg
Polish Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz
Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras
Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny
Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho
Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka
Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico
Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma
Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban
Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic
Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel
Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat
Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven
Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko
Swiss President Simonetta Sommaruga
Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga
Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu
Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibachvili
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov
Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz
Canadian public safety minister Steven Blaney
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman
Jordanian King Abdullah II and Queen Rania
Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas
United Arab Emirates foreign minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahayan
Qatari Sheikh Mohamed Ben Hamad Ben Khalifa Al Thani
Bahrain Foreign Minister Sheikh Khaled ben Ahmed Al Khalifa and Prince Abdullah Ben Hamad al-Khalifa
Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita
Gabonese President Ali Bongo
Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou
Benin President Thomas Boni Yayi
Tunisian Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa
Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra

Russia sent a representative, and Benjamin Netanyahu went also, in spite of the fact that Monsieur Hollande told him not to! How quaint! How insulting! How very French!!!

But the French have always been appeasers.

Over the weekend, Andrew Bolt said, “Are we really all Charlie? No, no and shamefully no”:

Australia also has oppressive racial vilification laws which Prime Minister Tony Abbott had promised to relax but last year decided to keep, saying changing them would become a “complication” in making Muslim Australians side with the rest of us against jihadists.
[…]
This will go on. Be sure of it. Your ruling classes will not easily admit to having made an error that cannot now be fixed. It will prefer oppression to freedom, if that brings at least the illusion of peace — and many may even think they are right.
[…]

The French Ambassador now tells us – and as if we didn’t know…Paris attacks: French ambassador urges Australia to remember ‘the spirit of Charlie’ – video

The French ambassador to Australia, Christophe Lecourtier, tells people at a rally in Martin Place, Sydney, to keep in mind the protest ethos of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. He says those at Martin Place would be acutely aware of ‘what violence means’. Three days of bloodshed in France saw 17 people and three gunmen killed. Twelve people died at the offices of Charlie Hebdo and there were further attacks at a kosher supermarket and other sites around Paris.

Seems he can’t say the “J” word! And he can’t say the “I” word either!!

So what we have now is a situation where we must rely on our own cartoonists for the truth, and for showing principles and leadership.

Mr Larry Pickering:

Halal certified Muhammad-piggie ready for roasting on a pencil spit over a pile of Qurans - and wearing nipple clamps!

Mr Bill Leak:

Bill Leak cartoon: Free speech as long as it doesn't offend - with Aussie Labor/Green senators in front

Perhaps these two gentleman would better serve the Australian public!

Oddly enough, US President Barack Hussein Obama didn’t attend with the group of world leaders. He sent his AG to France, not his VP, but Holder didn’t attend either!

Obama: ‘The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam…’

That’s a very telling little sentence! What does he know that you don’t know?

PS: That lovely picture of you both is courtesy of Mr Larry Pickering!

Jihadi recruitment, training, propaganda, infiltration, terrorism, and warfare cannot be perpetrated without money. The blog Money Jihad exposes terrorist financing. I highly recommend it.

Money Jihad author A. D. Kendall writes: “One wonders when France will begin air strikes against AQAP targets in Yemen.”

Indeed.

ALL jihadi cells are dangerous

Evidently, the French police underestimated the local jihadi cell in France that gave rise to the Charlie Hebdo attack. This small and seemingly insignificant group of committed jihadis had no difficulty in making contact with AQAP, and obtaining money, training, and weapons from them.

The French prison system, much like prison systems in the US and elsewhere, has become a venue for jihadi networking and recruitment. NYT has the story on that: Jihadism Born in a Paris Park and Fueled in the Prison Yard. When will western nations muster the political will to do whatever it takes to put an end to prison jihad?

Blog admin 1389 has lived full time in an RV for a decade. Along with providing companionship, El Gato and La Gata do a great job of keeping the mice away from all parts of the RV to which they can gain access. Unfortunately, there was a small cubbyhole that the felines couldn’t get to, which contained a Cat6 Ethernet cable. Guess what…mice managed to get in there and gnawed the connectors, destroying the cable. Oh well, stuff happens…

If you store your RV when it is not being lived in, you will need to make sure that rodents, including squirrels, don’t gnaw your wiring. Rodents can often get at wires on your RV’s undercarriage, which is exposed to the outdoors. Taking the RV on the road, and cleaning and inspecting the interior and exterior frequently, helps to keep it clear of pests and other problems that could cause deterioration. The best way to keep an RV in good condition is to use it regularly.

SOCIETY | JANUARY 6, 2015 | 12:36
BELGRADE — The Serbian Orthodox Church will on Thursday launch its television station, TV Hram (“TV Temple”), that will be available only online.

This will coincide with the Christmas holiday period, marked in Serbia according to the Julian calendar, on January 7.

The Church already operates 15 radio stations, the Belgrade-based daily Vecernje Novosti writes.

The first program the TV station will broadcast will be an interview with Serbian Patriarch Irinej, who has given his blessing for the project, the newspaper reported.

The Patriarchy’s managing office director and editor-in-chief of television production, Stojadin Pavolovic, says the new outlet will cooperate with electronic and print media from Serbia, Montenegro, and the Serb Republic.

TV Hram has already reached agreement on cooperation with Russian television stations Solyuz and Spas, and stations run by the Greek Orthodox Church.

“Beside the Church-related topics, we intend to present, in the best light, to the country and the diaspora, the goings-on in the Serbian capital city that concern almost every areas, including culture, health care, education, and in relation to that we will achieve cooperation with all state institutions in order to make our program as rich, diverse, and interesting as possible,” Pavlovic explained.

RTV: TV Hram počela da radi

NOVI SAD – Nakon osnivanja petnaestak radio stanica, Srpska pravoslavna crkva pokrenula je i prvu televizijsku stanicu TV “Hram”, koja će program emitovati putem interneta. …

Pored emisija duhovnog karaktera, TV “Hram” će donositi priče iz gotovo svih oblasti: kulture, zdravstva, prosvete, obrazovanja, ali humanitrani rad crkve neće trpeti, kaže glavni i odgovorni urednik Stojadin Pavlović, već će javnost o njemu više znati.

“Moram da priznam na moju dušu i na dušu nas nekih iz crkve da mi o tome nismo dovoljno pričali . Mi ćemo i ubuduće te akcije organizovati i intenzivirati, ali ćemo o njima i pričati. Upravo će crkveni mediji kao što je Televezija “Hram” imati obavezu, i to nije nikakva sramota, reći ono što smo radili”, kaže za RTV glavni i odgovorni urednik TV “Hram” Stojadin Pavlović.

Crkva ima obavezu da ide ukorak s vremenom i ostvari bolju komunikaciju sa vernicima iz svih slojeva društva.

“Budući da je internet jedan sveremeni medij, to jeste pravo čudo da je SPC prihvatila taj izazov, ali je i to znak našeg društva da se promenilo, a i sama crkva da se prilagođava izazovima vremena”, ocenjuje sociološkinja religije Zorica Kuburić.

Novinar Nedim Sejdinović sa druge strane smatra da je osnivanje crkvene televizije vrlo problematično, jer crkva pred zakonom ima privilegovanom položaj, pa je pitanje ko će onda imati moć da kontroliše njihov program.

“Odakle crkvi da otvara televiziji i zašto koji je cilj. Da li je cilj to što je vezano za delovanje crkve u našem društvu, da se ona veoma često ponaša više kao politička stranka koja nije zainteresovana za duše građana nego više za njihove novčanike i njihovu ideološku pripadnost. Da li je televizija način da se crkva i dalje bavi tom ideološkom progandom širi rasizam homfobiju, mržnju i sve ono čega se pametni stide”, rekao je Sejdinović.

Televizija “Hram” emitovanje je počela na Božić i to intervjuom sa patrijarhom Irinejem.

Eksperimentalni program biće dostupan na adresi tvhram.rs.

Yahoo News UK has the story:

A major police operation is under way in France as prosecutors confirmed the second terror attack in the capital in as many days.

Several armed officers were at the scene of a fatal shooting this morning in the south of Paris.

A female police officer, reportedly 25, was killed after she was called to reports of a traffic accident involving a grey Clio at around 7.15am.

A street sweeper was critically injured in the shooting, which is now being treated as a “terrorist act” by the French authorities.

Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said police with heavy armour were seen in Porte de Chatillon shortly afterwards and TV news crews were being pushed back from the area, which was sealed off with tape.

Meanwhile, officers are still hunting for suspects in the deadly gun attack on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Two men matching their description are said to have robbed a petrol station about an hour’s drive northeast of Paris.

Footage of police activity in the village of Crepy-en-Valois, 10 miles (16km) from that scene, is now emerging.

With the country now on its highest terror alert, hundreds of extra officers have been deployed to guard media offices, places of worship and other areas deemed at risk in the capital.

Some 200 soldiers from parachute regiments across the country have been drafted in to Paris, bringing the number of military patrolling the streets to 850.

In today’s attack, which is not being linked by officials to yesterday’s shootings, a man wearing a bullet-proof vest fired at the council worker and police woman, who became the third officer to be killed in the capital in 24 hours.

Witness Ahmed Sassi said: “There was an officer in front of a white car and a man running away who shot.”

TV channel iTele said both victims of the shooting were seen lying on the ground.

Le Parisien newspaper reported that one of the shooters ran towards the Metro station Chatillon-Montrouge. The other is reported to have fled by car and is still on the run.

AFP news agency reported that a 53-year-old suspect has been detained.

Brunt said: “It’s difficult to believe there’s no link (to the Charlie Hebdo shootings).

A 2-minute Christian reflection. This one is on deepening our need to “connect” – from being just online, – to connecting, as one humanity, in God. Hosted by Sr. Dr. Vassa Larin of the University of Vienna in Austria.

Hello everyone! I‘m Sr. Vassa, and this is just a short Coffee Break, where we chat, well, I chat, about all sorts of things. Today let‘s reflect a bit on Being Connected. In the modern-day world we almost constantly feel the need to be connected to one another online, through our phones or other mobile devices. And this need is a natural thing. – No it‘s not, Sr. Vassa – you- ‘re saying? It‘s just technology? What I‘m saying, zillions, is that we have created and so wholeheartedly embraced this technology be-cause we are, indeed, all connected and part of one humanity, and we need to “belong“ and sense our belonging; that we are not little islands drifting about on our own. In this very important book I‘ve be-en reading, “What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains“ by Nicholas Carr, it says that in fact, the primary reason we follow various social media is not for information or even entertainment, but because it fosters our sense of belonging. Now, let‘s remind ourselves that we are, indeed, called by Christ to be one, just as He and the Father and the Holy Spirit are One. The Lord repeatedly insists that He Himself is not acting or speaking on His own, but in connection with The Father: “I did not come of my own accord, but He sent me.“ (Jn 8:42) And He prays that all of us, that “all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us“ (Jn 17:20- 21). So let‘s remember to get connected, in prayer, in God, in Whom our true unity lies, rather than misdirecting our calling to be one, or limiting it to our not-always beneficial interaction online! That‘s it for today, zillions. Get connected, and I‘ll see you next time!
