These past few days have been quite interesting considering the change in climate that has been brought across Europe in what seems to be a carefully orchestrated narrative.
We at Oceania Saker strongly condemn the acts of terrorism in Paris, it was indeed a cowardly act which resulted in the loss of life. Life is precious and it saddens us how so much discord,chaos and insanity prevails around the world today.
There have been attempts both overt and covert at somehow linking The Saker and the other independent Saker Blogs to some kind of extremist view point. We feel this is categorically false and without foundation. The Saker community is perhaps one of the most inclusive on the internet and everyone is welcome and will always be welcome.
We are merely reporting news, opinion and analysis which quite often is diametrically opposite to the mainstream media.
In this day and age, with all the revelations of not just global spying, torture and state sponsored acts of terror and genocide under the guise of “democracy”, we feel it is unnatural to simply swallow whole sale the “official” version of events.
We will continue to print opinion that we feel helps people question more. The text below is yet another opinion on the matter that we feel deserves to be heard. The hypocrisy is too great to be just ignored.

Thousands of people take part in silent march in Paris in remembrance of the victims of last weeks terror attacks in France. The attacks, by a bunch of criminals, were depicted as an assault on “free speech”.

Unfortunately a bunch of hypocrites, invited by the French president Hollande, insisted on walking at the front of the march and to devalue the intended purpose. Many of these “leaders” sawed and saw terror in their own and other countries. As one Charlie Hebdo cartoonist says:
‘We vomit on all these people who suddenly say they are our friends”
David Wickham documented the “free speech” credentials of these so called “leaders” who now compel the participants of the march to follow in the stench of their hypocrisy.
The right response to the attacks comes from the brother of the killed police officers Ahmed Merabet:
“My brother was Muslim and he was killed by two terrorists, by two false Muslims,” he said. “Islam is a religion of peace and love. As far as my brother’s death is concerned it was a waste. He was very proud of the name Ahmed Merabet, proud to represent the police and of defending the values of the Republic – liberty, equality, fraternity.”
Malek reminded France that the country faced a battle against extremism, not against its Muslim citizens. “I address myself now to all the racists, Islamophobes and antisemites. One must not confuse extremists with Muslims. Mad people have neither colour or religion,” he said.
“I want to make another point: don’t tar everybody with the same brush, don’t burn mosques – or synagogues. You are attacking people. It won’t bring our dead back and it won’t appease the families.”
