On behalf of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS), I offer heartfelt condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of all those who lost their lives to the heinous acts of terror perpetrated in the heart of France over the last few days.

Our hearts go out to the French people and to all whose lives have been devastated by mindless terror everywhere. We commend the resilience and resolve demonstrated by people from all walks of life in the wake of the Paris murders. The last few days serve as a stark reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of standing steadfast in our pursuit of a better and more compassionate world that truly cherishes Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it”... John 1:5

On behalf of the Catholic Church in Southern Africa, I express our outrage at the vicious attacks on Journalists and Civilians in the City of Paris, in recent days. The loss of life is truly tragic and the attack on a core principle of democracy viz. freedom of expression is deplorable. Our hearts go out to the loved ones of those who have been killed and all who mourn their death. We express our deepest condolences to them. We believe that it is only God who will heal them.

To the people of France, we stand in admiration for your courage and solidarity shown in these difficult times. The Unity March of Sunday 11th January 2015 showed to us, and the whole world, the resolve of the French people to unite and rise above this evil.

Be assured of our solidarity and prayerful support.
Fraternally yours in Christ,

Twelve people including two police officers were killed in a shooting at the Paris offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

We as the Nizamiye Mosque would like to declare that any violent and terrorist activity, no matter who does it and for what purpose, is the greatest blow to peace, humanity, and all religious values. No one - and certainly no Muslims - can approve of any violent and terrorist activity.
Terror and violence is totally incompatible with Islam and it has no place in one’s quest to achieve independence or salvation.

So, we strongly condemn this violent and terrorist attack on the Charlie Hebdo and share the pains of the victims and the whole French society.

Dear Ambassador Barbier

Never would I have thought that I would begin my first day back at the office composing a condolence letter of this nature to you and to the French people following such a devastating tragedy.

It was extraordinary yesterday to witness the unity with which the French people protested these horrific acts of terror.

I would like to pay tribute to your government for their strong, meaningful and effective response yesterday to the violation against French values and culture. It resonated globally and uplifted us despite the tragic circumstances that gave rise to it.

We offer our support and solidarity as France embarks on a new dawn against terror.

I express to you and to the French people our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your journalists, members of law enforcement and our fellow Jewish brothers who were murdered last week in Paris.

Please see below our press statement that was issued on Saturday night 10 January.

Kind regards

Dear Embassy of France in South Africa

Condolences for the losses of the lives of the people who have been attacked due to free speech in your home nation. It is sad to see that extremism is growing rapidly and proportionally to the amount of people immigrating to Europe.

I wish the families of the victims to have comfort in the fact that the members of the newspaper stood for freedom and what is right and died for what is right as martyrs for the freedom of speech and the police officers died doing their duty. I pray that attacks like these may be prevented in the future.

Kindest Regards ;

The Embassy of the Czech Republic wishes to extend the most sincerely condolences on the horrendous terrorist attack against the headquarters of the magazine “Charlie Hebdo” on 7 January 2015, which claimed so many human lives. As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic stated, the “unacceptable actions of the attackers testify to their disrespect for human life as well as to their hostile attitude to the freedom of speech, one of the values advocated by the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic shares with France the conviction that it is vital to combat terrorism in all its forms.”

The Embassy of the Czech Republic conveys the deepest sympathy to the families of the victims and best wishes for a speedy recovery of those who were injured.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Republic of South Africa avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the Embassy of France the assurances of its highest consideration.

I am deeply shocked to learn of the attack at Charlie Hebdo magazine office in Paris, the Republic of France on January 7, 2015 which resulted in the death of the Editor, other media persons of the magazine, security personnel and several injuries. I, in line with the principled stance of the Government of Nepal against the act of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, condemn this terrorist and unpardonable attack on media house and associated personnel in unequivocal terms. This brutal murder and cowardly act of terrorism is completely unjustified and cannot be condoned on any ground.

At this difficult time, on behalf of the Government and people of Nepal as well as the
Embassy and on my own, I express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who lost their near and dear ones and stand in strong solidarity with the French Embassy, the Government and the friendly people of France in their fight against terrorism and in defence of freedom of expression.

Mesdames, Messieurs,

L’horrible attaque contre l’équipe de Charlie Hebdo nous bouleverse tous profondément. Nous avons adressé nos sincères condoléances aux proches des victimes et à leurs collègues. Nous pensons avec une immense sympathie aux blessés, dont plusieurs luttent contre la mort.

Vous trouverez ci-dessous la réaction que Human Rights Watch a diffusé aux médias (lien vers VF : http://www.hrw.org/fr/news/2015/01/07/attentat-dans-les-locaux-de-charlie-hebdo)

Attack on Charlie Hebdo Office

The horrific attack at the Charlie Hebdo office on January 7, 2015, led to the death of 12 people, including two policemen. Nothing can justify such an attack and those who organised and committed these crimes should be brought to justice, Human Rights Watch said. France should protect freedom of expression and guard against any backlash against particular groups.

L’horrible attentat dans les locaux de Charlie Hebdo le 7 janvier 2015 a conduit à la mort de 12 personnes, dont deux policiers. Rien ne peut justifier une telle attaque et ceux qui ont organisé et commis ces crimes doivent être traduits en justice, a déclaré Human Rights Watch. La France doit protéger la liberté d’expression et se garder de toute forme de représailles à l’encontre de groupes particuliers.

أدى الاعتداء المروع على مكاتب مجلة شارلي هيبدو في باريس في السابع من يناير/كانون الثاني2015 الى مقتل 12 شخصاً، من ضمنهما اثنين من رجال الشرطة.وأكدت هيومن رايتس ووتش على أن لا شيء من شأنه تبرير مثل هذا الاعتداء ويجب أن يمثل أولئك الذين خططوا ونفذوا هذه الجرائم أمام العدالة. كما ويجب على فرنسا بذل الجهود لضمانة حرية التعبير وحمايتها في مواجهة أي ردود فعل قد تتعرض لها مجموعات بعينها جراء ذلك.

Nous croyons, Madame l’ambassadeur, que ces tueries macabres constituent une attaque non seulement contre la France libre mais aussi contre l’ensemble de l’univers de la pensée et de l’expression libres et démocratiques, dans lequel votre nation ainsi que notre organisation feront toujours parties intégrantes.

Tout en réaffirmant notre soutien indéfectible aux familles des victimes ainsi qu’au peuple français en général, nous vous prions, Madame l’ambassadeur d’agréer nos sentiments respectueux.

Sincerest condolences and sympathies to the families and friends of those journalists and others murdered on 7th January15

But where does it all end ?

These terrorists have thrown down the gauntlet and factually declared war on the French Nation.

If this is seen as an act of criminal war (whether war be declared or not !) then one might suggest that if and when captured the criminals face trial by a Military Court /Tribunal

If found guilty they could face a firing squad !

Sure, they might consider themselves martyrs, but most ordinary people would understand the true nature of their hateful deeds.
