Freedom of speech has been deeply wounded

A terrorist attack to the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris  yesterday has made 12 victims, so far.
The act can be considered of extreme violence and was perpetrated in cold blood but no doubt premeditated  as there had been several threats and minor attacks to one of the best known satirical publications worldwide. The barbararic killings were perpetrated by a group of three islamists who acted in name of Ala. Numerous leaders of countries worldwide have already shown their disgust and disagreement to this attack and its tragic consequences as well as for the religious islamist leaders who have condemned this hidious act. Many values are involved despite the freedom of speech, liberty, freedom of thought and expression, demovracy, human rights and the highest: the right to live and be free!
