    Not the religion did it, but rather some individuals who abuse religion for their sick agenda.

    I have mates who are Muslims and they don't go around shooting people with automatic weapons. This is terrorism, and it's awful. It makes me sick to the bone to hear about stuff like this. :(

    They were shouting: "We killed Chalie Hebdo !" ... but what they don't realise is that they made it even stronger. All free people are Charlie Hebdo.

    All my though to their families, friends and relatives.

    What makes it worse is they attacked the French. Everyone knows the French can't fight back!

    But in all seriousness, it's deeply unfortunate that there are people in the world who think a political cartoon is worth killing their fellow human beings over.

    The mind is an easily manipulated thing, its so sad to see. These monsters will believe that they did the right thing today, hopefully one day they will wake up and realize it that wasn't, and understand the value of life.

    RIP to those artists that risked it all and paid the ultimate price today.

    Ok I admit that was a bit of a knee jerk comment. I think this tribute cartoon sums up a few things..

    But it's not religion. These people are just using Islam to justify their twisted beliefs. Talk to any real Muslim and they will condemn the killings just as readily as anyone else - perhaps moreso because it's their religion that is being dragged through the dirt yet again.

    Actions like this do the opposite of what people like these hope to achieve, you only have to look at the way people have reacted to what happened to see in general it's not causing divide or silencing people.

    More and more people who follow the Islamic faith are speaking out against these types of action in the same way as non Islamists, and more people are drawing satirical cartoons than ever before, in fact this one made me laugh...

    Both funny, sad, and thought provoking i think.

    A policewoman has reportedly died of her wounds now too.

    How weak does your faith have to be, if it can't withstand someone poking fun at it?

    That policewomen got shot this morning, along with another man. No evidence that this is related to yesterday's event, but the same weapon what used (Kalachnikov) and the aggressor where 2, like yesterday.

    One of Tignous's drawing (who died yesterday)
