The Paris attacks and the significance of November 13th

Great War occupation of Constantinople: “The first French troops entered the city on November 12, 1918, followed by British troops the next day… The last Allied troops departed from the city on September 23, 1923. The first Turkish troops entered the city on October 6, 1923” – Wikipedia.

Some reactions to the terrorist attacks in Paris; five items in total…

Mark Steyn: The barbarians are inside, and there are no gates – “…there’s nowhere to get away from it; the barbarians who yell ‘Allahu Akbar!’ are there waiting for you …when you go to a soccer match, you go to a concert, you go for a drink on a Friday night. They’re there on the train… at the magazine office… in the Kosher supermarket… at the museum in Brussels… outside the barracks in Woolwich…” – here.

President Obama: “Obama leaves ‘Islam’ out of Paris terror statement – “I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened… I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this.” – here.

French revenge? Calais ‘Jungle’ refugee camp on fire as Paris rocked by deadly attacks – “There had been immediate speculation that the camp was set on fire in retaliation for the Paris attacks… That is two separate things, and the fire there has nothing to do with the attacks in Paris tonight” – here.

Poland: New government rejects migrant quotas after Paris attacks – “…in the face of the tragic acts in Paris, we do not see the political possibilities to implement (the plan)” – here.

Ted Cruz: No more Syrian refugees in wake of ISIS escalation – “…we need to take immediate, commonsense steps to preserve our own safety. We need to consult closely with our NATO allies who may be targeted for additional attacks. We need to immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been infiltrated by ISIS to the United States. We need to redouble our efforts to prevent ISIS agents from penetrating our nation by other means.” – here.
