Paris Unity March
January 11 2015
The Interior Ministry estimated 1.2 million to 1.6 million people took part in the March Against Terror.
More than 40 world leaders marched arm in arm. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, EU parliament president Martin Schulz, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou, French President Francois Hollande, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt,
US Attorney General Eric Holder, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, European Council president Donald Tusk, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Swiss President Simonetta Sommaruga, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, Bosnian Foreign Minister Zlatko Lagumdzija, Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic, Kosovar President Atifete Jahjaga, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Moroccan Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar, Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Tunisian Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Gabonese President Ali Bongo.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was uninvited. President Francois Hollande asked him not to come, but he decided to come anyway. That prompted France to invite Palestinian Authority President Mahmood Abbas.
Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit, but did not join the anti-terrorism march. Kerry was in India. Only US Ambassador to France Jane Hartley attended the march.
The Obama administrations is definitely giving us this message:
We are NOT Charlie Hebdo and we distance ourselves from Bibi’s psychopathic actions.
