paris2In what French President is calling an act of war, 129 people were killed, over 300 injured – including 99 critically in multiple terror attacks last night in Paris.

The targets included bars, restaurants, a concert and football game.

According to authorities, these were the deadliest attacks on French soil since WWII and the worst attack in Europe since the bombings in Madrid in 2004.

Attack sites

• La Belle Equipe, 92 rue de Charonne, 11th district – at least 19 dead in gun attacks
• Le Carillon bar and Le Petit Cambodge restaurant at rue Alibert, 10th district – at least 12 dead in gun attacks
• La Casa Nostra restaurant, 92 rue de la Fontaine au Roi, 11th district – at least 5 dead in gun attacks
• Stade de France, St Denis, just north of Paris – explosions heard outside venue, three attackers dead
• Bataclan concert venue, 50 Boulevard Voltaire, 11th district – stormed by four gunmen, at least 80 dead

The attack on the 1,500-seat Bataclan concert hall was the deadliest of Friday night’s attacks. Gunmen opened fire on a sell-out gig by US rock group Eagles of Death Metal, killing at least 80 people.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks.

In response to the attacks, President Hollande has declared three days of national mourning.

Back in New Jersey, Governor Christie said, “We are working with our Homeland Security Department and NJ State Police to make sure that all steps are taken to protect NJ after Paris attacks.”

  1. This is a horrific act of terrorism perpetrated against innocent people by a group of despicable vermin who have no appreciation for the value of human life.
    That said, if something like this chas v’shalom happened in Israel would anyone care?

  2. Let’s remember that this is the France that supports the Palestinians, BDS, & numerous resolutions against Israel. The same France that a Jew can’t walk on the streets without Anti Semitic slurs hurled at them.

  3. Thoughts and prayers for the wounded and those who lost loved ones in the barbaric attacks. All good people in the world stand with you and are praying for you.

  4. This is a horrible tragedy and many innocent lives have been snuffed out. The streets in France have become too dangerous for Jews due to the massive Muslim population there. Maybe now France will be less supportive of the Palestinians, and perhaps even a tad more sympathetic to the Jews and Israel, having become the recipient of a terrorist attack by Muslims..

  5. Cohen you’re leaving in Country “Zara “?
    Why you are so negative about support from around the world to country who had horrible terrorism attack what is your problem ?

  6. In an unrelated story, the fact that Christie is working with Homeland and NJSP to make us safer is actually scarier than if he would’ve said nothing.
    Honk if u disagree.

  7. And the USA open their doors to 200 of this refuges(two of the attackers had asylum) USA is willing to help this people that only causes trouble however all this hostility against the latino community, that only are trying to work. Something is seriously wrong here people please wake up
