    Europe is getting the worst sh!t seen in a long while. So sorry for France and its citizens...I fear it's far from being the end

    Someone has set the refugee camp in Calais on fire... as if those poor refugees have anything to do with organised terrorism

    I came home from work and saw that Facebook was swamped in thoughts and prayers for the people in Paris. I have family in Paris, as well as a few friends, and I haven't been able to get in touch with them. I hope they're okay.

    This is really going to make me worry about the refugees. From what I've read, this an ISIS attack, but everyone is still going to pin this on the refugees.

    ...., I already see people doing that.

    The two theories doing the rounds on Twitter is that a.) this is retaliation for the attacks on ISIS positions in Syria (this leaked from the French Govt) and b.) this is a way for ISIS to get Europe to close its borders to refugees who are escaping them

    It's probably a bit of both

    Last I saw was over 140 dead in Paris.

    Stay strong, our French comrades, you have our support and are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Think reddit is actually down now. Last I heard there were over 100 dead in the club following the raid including three Terrorists. This is on top of the 60 elsewhere. 1500 French soldiers released to help in the streets of Paris.

    My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the French people and innocent refugees just trying to find safety and live life. Absolutely heart breaking, try and stay strong France. To all of our French community members if there's anyway we can help in any form please let us know.

    [EDIT : sorry for posting this. Not gonna edit it cause someone else quoted the original message anyway]

    I'm not exactly in a good mental state right now but as someone who lives in France, I want to say something.

    CAN WE JUST BOMB THEM ALL DEAD ALREADY ? We're not safe in our own country anymore. It's about time we stop being victims and we just erase them and their ideology from the surface of the planet. How about we show them what it's like to get killed by the dozens just like that, what it's like when you're not even safe in your homeland anymore ? What it's like when someone doesn't consider you deserve the right to live ?

    Jeez I'm a patient and pacific guy but I honestly wish we just bomb their entire Islamic State to dust until nothing's left. I'm sick of them.

    I get that you're angry and all that stuff, but this is the wrong kind of thinking for right now and all you're going to do is get yourself banned

    You're right. I hope I won't get banned. I'm angry and I'm scared.

    But seriously. These people are religious extremists with no respect for life. One of them has been caught saying "this is the fault of your President, he has no business in Syria". Well, they didn't kill our President (nor should they), they killed over a hundred innocent people. I don't want to be scared of them. I don't want someone I love to be the next victim of their fanatic crusades against us.

    All I'm seeing is attacks like this happening over and over again, slowly reaching the death count of 9/11. Same horror, different name. That's why I posted such an awful message above. I'm just so tired of this.
