Terror Suspects?

According to USA Today: “French police hunt door to door for terror suspects”

Why are they considered terror suspects?  Why not just criminals?

The nation raised its terror alert system to the maximum…

I believe it to be true that there have been other murders and even shootings in France – maybe mass shootings.  In fact, here is a list of French mass murderers; here is another of French spree killers.  I didn’t check them all, but in the ones I checked there was no mention of “terror suspects.”
Three men reportedly killed twelve people in an office.  A horrendous event.  I know the details, but feel them unimportant to my question: why are they considered anything other than criminals?

France's Interior Ministry said 88,000 people have been deployed…

Eighty-eight thousand people deployed to find two people?  I didn’t see mention of 88,000 people deployed in any of the previous French mass killings.

…in the massive manhunt for Said Kouachi, 34, and Cherif Kouachi, 32, who are suspected of killing 12 people in the assault on the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

I guess we know why they are considered terrorists.  Yes, that's right: it is because they are both in their early 30s.

There is more:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will travel to Paris this weekend to attend a Sunday International Ministerial meeting. The meeting, called in response to the attacks, is being convened by the French Minister of Interior. The meetings will include discussions on addressing terrorist threats, foreign fighters and countering violent extremism.

Eric Holder?  To capture two criminals?  He doesn’t have enough to do with police killing unarmed civilians in the US?

A horrendous crime took place – twelve people were killed.  Isn’t it enough to find those who did it?  Isn't it enough to mourn the victims?  Does such drama need to be attached?

Then again, France has a good teacher.


  1. I think the definition is

    Criminal - Someone who has attacked another person or their property.

    Terrorists - Anyone who may threaten Government.

    Its like Murderer or Assassin, murderers just kill average people, assassins kill officials and people with close connections to government.

    So terrorists and assassins get high priority from government while murderers and criminals get low priority. The government of France and US are showing what they think is important.

  2. beforeitsnews among the crazy stories has good ones also, like......that Netya of Israel said France made a grave mistake for voting pro Palestine to be a state. Look for Hollande/french President saying in a speech that the terror was done by the Illuminati, fanatics and has nothing to do with Islam.
    BBC and RT filmed it. just saying
