Response to Killings in France

12 Killed in Attack at French Magazine; Is ISIS Responsible?

At least twelve people have been killed in a shooting spree allegedly taking place at the hands of two hooded gunmen in Paris, France. As of the morning of the shooting, the gunmen remain on the loose, with French President Francois Hollande declaring they “will be chased as long as necessary, so that they can be stopped and be brought before judges.”

What motivated this deadly attack? No one has yet to claim responsibility. However, the last tweet by the Charlie Hebdo magazine before the attack depicted Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi with the words, “Et surtout la santé!” which means, “And, above all, health!”


The French satirical publication is not new to its parodies of controversial figures. Charlie Hebdo was also responsible for publishing a caricature of Prophet Muhammad on its cover in 2011 that sparked much concern, including a firebombing at its office. It also reprinted the 2006 cartoons of the prophet Muhammad that caused great controversy in Danish publications.

We encourage all Christians to pray for those involved in this tragic event. Also, this incident seems to yet again indicate the growing threat of the militant movement of the Islamic State and the need for increased efforts to stand against its acts of violence.
