PRAY FOR PARIS (LINKS)
ISIS has claimed responsibility and issued a statement that included keeping France on its target list:
“To teach France, and all nations following its path, that they will remain at the top of Islamic State’s list of targets, and that the smell of death won’t leave their noses as long as they partake in their crusader campaign,”
Earlier in the day, President Obama claimed “ISIS is contained“.
The attack that took the most lived was in a concert hall, where terrorists walked in and began shooting people before blowing themselves up when French police breached the building.
Man arrested in #ParisAttacks told police: “I am Syrian, I was here with 2 others, we were recruited by ISIS, this is an ISIS mission”

Allegedly, there were eight terrorists and all were killed during or right after the attacks. The city was put under curfew for the first time since 1944.
As of this post, the media is reporting around 127 or 128 dead. Last night, multiple outlets were reporting up to 153 dead. Details are still lose; keep that in mind when reading the news today.
State Department says if you have a loved one in Paris, to call 1-888-407-4747 (from the US) or 202-501-4444 (from overseas) for assistance.

These murderers aren’t refugees. Nor are they real Muslims. They’re terrorists who’ve hijacked a religion for nefarious gain. #paris

Now is not the time to self-righteously pretend like angry Muslims are alone in shooting up innocent people in crowded theaters.
