The Muslim who slaughtered terrified Jewish children and a rabbi at a Jewish Day School in France is still holding the gutless cops at bay in France. I kid you not. Instead of shooting the jiahdi in the head, the siege is entering its second day.
What is France so afraid of? Tens of thousands of burning cars because a righteous slaughtering Muslim was not "respected"?
