Would you have killed them?

Nobody can fail to have seen and heard about the awful tragedy in Paris this week where two extremists attacked the satirical newspaper and then continued their killing spree across France. I don't want to go into detail here as I am sure you all know this story inside out.

The Kouachi brothers allegedly (have to say that to cover the law) killed the 12 people in the newspaper office while their 18 year old accomplice Mourad Hamyd was outside and killed a police officer (who did hand himself in)

Four more people died in a Kosher supermarket as a protest to the Kourachi brothers being pursued, the male gunman was killed and his female accomplice is now believed to be in Syria.

Just after five on Friday afternoon/evening the Kouachi brothers were shot as they left a printing press in Dammartin-en-Goele

What annoys me and I would like your feedback on is that to some other extremists, these animals have become martyrs as they died in a 'holy war' as they now turned against the Jewish community in addition to the other communities they had issued a Jihad on.

To me the Muslim policeman that was shot is far more likely and deserving of martyrdom because he died defending the people of Paris - defending human life and honouring their religious teachings.

What you would you have done if you were in charge? Would you kill them at the first chance or would you capture the men and lock them away for life thus stopping other extremists from hero worshiping them?

I know which one I would choose - they would rot in a tiny cell , they would have no contact with the outside word - no way to pass messages to the people outside. They would be made to face up to the true Muslim leaders and explain to them how they are fighting in the name of Islam and face whatever punishment their religion requires

Why do people call them holy wars when they involve killing people? Is that not what should define them as 'unholy wars'?

I put a lot of blame on the media. You will hear over and over those names and what they done and how they died. But the poor policeman and other victims are probably already not being mentioned very much if any. At least thats the way our news does things here. That just makes people think they can get a share of the fame also. Especially impressionable young adults and teens.

For criminals like this, death is an easy way out. I agree with you, they should have been made to live out their days in a tiny prison cell with next to nothing

Muslim Jihadists such as these believe that if they die defending Islam they will go to a heaven where they will be feted as heroes. Personally. I would have no problem in helping them ascend to their heaven.

we can't be here 24/7 glitches, gremlins, need for sleep and life in general will always confound us once in a while

talking of glitches the comment I left above was for the post next door but somehow got tipped into here instead

I liked your post and you ask some very valid questions. I would rather have them as dead martyrs to their twisted cause than as live prisoners whom their comrades might seek to free.

well it is all very much sad , but now can we think that France going to attack Syria to capture her ??

I think whether they are shot dead or allowed to languish in jail, they would still have their followers and still have the warped hero status from other extremists

I know it makes me mad. If they had a blanket ban on reporting these things they would not have the same effect and would stop them hunting for the fame

mrsmerlin wrote on January 12, 2015, 9:30 PM

I have a problem with anything else because I would feel as bad as them and would hate it if I couldn't be completely sure it was the right person

mrsmerlin wrote on January 12, 2015, 9:32 PM

I am having a really hard time associating the term Muslim to them. The Muslim world condemns them and what they do is completely contra to the religious teachings.

These are just murderous animals

mrsmerlin wrote on January 12, 2015, 9:33 PM

I guess so yes.
Have to say I am surprised that the police officer who was killed hasn't been named as the true Muslim martyr

mrsmerlin wrote on January 12, 2015, 9:35 PM

I don't think France will attack it goes against how they work and they aren't tucked up in the control of other foreign governments as the UK is

mrsmerlin wrote on January 12, 2015, 9:36 PM

This is where it comes back to the media, their followers would never have heard of them to support them if it wasn't in the media

I would deny them the martyrdom the want, put them on trial as A & B make them nameless entities, name the victims and the real heroes scream those names from the roof tops and condemn the gunmen to a long and miserable life of in prison.
