New murderous attack against free speech and Jews in Europe

Barely a month after the massacre in Paris, we have again Islamist terrorists attacking free speech and the few remaining Jews of Europe.

The shooting, as in France, had two rounds, the first one against people criticizing Islam and the second against a Jewish institution.

Yesterday (Feb. 14), a public seminar called Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression was organized in Copenhagen to honor victims of the attack in January against the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. A gunman shot, killing a 55-yr-old man whose identity I don't know yet. The intended target is believed to have been Swedish artist Lars Vilks who drew Prophet Muhammad as a dog back in 2007.

Then, shortly after midnight, a Jewish guard was shot death in front of a synagogue. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has already urged European Jews to move to Israel, saying: "Extremist Islamic terrorism has struck Europe again... Jews have been murdered again on European soil only because they were Jews".

Danish police say they have shot dead the suspect.
