Video of the Day

A friend practically forced me to watch this video, and I’m extremely glad I did because the woman in it is me. Of course, I can’t record a video like this myself because I’d splutter, wave my hands, and screech in a heavy accent that comes out when I’m agitated. So I’m glad someone else spoke about how so many of us feel.

  1. Have you heard of this disturbing case? Food for thought regarding the wisdom of receiving all refugees of the world:

    // French leader decries terrorist beheading of teacher
    PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron denounced what he called an “Islamist terrorist attack” against a history teacher decapitated in a Paris suburb Friday, urging the nation to stand united against extremism.

    The teacher had discussed caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad with his class, authorities said. The suspected attacker was shot to death by police after Friday’s beheading.

    The French anti-terrorism prosecutor opened an investigation concerning murder with a suspected terrorist motive, the prosecutor’s office said.

    The teacher had received threats after opening a discussion “for a debate” about the caricatures about 10 days ago, the police official told The Associated Press. The parent of a student had filed a complaint against the teacher, another police official said, adding that the suspected killer did not have a child at the school.

    The suspect’s identity was not made public. French media reported that the suspect was an 18-year-old Chechen, born in Moscow. That information could not be immediately confirmed.

    France has offered asylum to many Chechens since the Russian military waged war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya in the 1990s and early 2000s, and there are Chechen communities scattered around France.
