Paris attacks 13/11

Quote

I read now that these crazy people this morning,shot dead a 7 year old sniffer dog before killing themselves
 I wish officialdom would see sense and postpone if not cancel the Davis Cup which is being held in Belgium until things quieten down a bit
Can't you get it into your head that this is the sort of thing the terrorists WANT people to do!  Also these attacks seem to be focussed entirely on Paris.  Security will be ramped up everywhere (and armed police were at Wembley last night), something the terrorists know will happen thereby removing the element of surprise which they so much depend on.

Not really. The only similarities between the two cartoons is that they feature rats and refugees. In the 1930's cartoon they are the refugees. The present day cartoon is commenting on the fact that the rats - Daesh terrorists - are crossing into Europe with legitimate refugees while border security looks on.

Hardly a stunning piece of political commentary, but not the racially-loaded piece of commentary the handwringing PC brigade want it to be.

How exactly does that excuse the Fail for being so crass as to publish them?

The Mail only published one cartoon. The one from the 30's was dredged up by someone looking for something to fake outrage over.

The worst thing about that Mail cartoon is that it's not actually funny.

Interesting piece from Ian Bell in yesterday's Herald which i didn't get round to reading last night. Where there's war there's brass right enough.  http://www.heraldscotland.com/opinion/14038005.Ian_Bell__tricky_home_truths_we_have_to_tackle_to_defeat_Islamic_State/

Yes this angle needs some spotlight. Always remembering too that they took down Al capone on tax evasion!

Meantime the brilliant Mark Steel has offered no condemnation of the killings either in his newspaper column or on twitter.

He has though offered sarcasm at those who repeatedly call the killings despicable.
