I appreciate that some people, for whatever reasons, are saying that they are not Charlie, but that they are not murderous fanatics, either. That's fine.... A third youth said: “We’re not Charlie,” referring to the slogan, ‘Je Suis Charlie’ adopted by the French in solidarity with those killed in the attacks. “We’re Kouachi,” he said. The counter-slogan “Je suis Kouachi” has appeared on Twitter more than 2,000 times.
Marie-Thérèse, a teacher living on a neighbouring street, who declined to give her surname, said she had been troubled by the reluctance of teenagers in her class to observe a minute of silence the day after the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
“Several started shouting and one said he wished he had a Kalashnikov to kill me,” said the teacher, Marie-Thérèse, who declined to give her surname. “I work in a tough school in a tough area, but the same thing happened in other schools.”
Le Figaro and other newspapers reported similar behaviour in schools in several French cities, and cases of non-Muslim pupils trying to attack Muslim classmates were also reported.
“Many of the kids I teach could easily be radicalised,” Marie-Thérèse said. “This doesn’t bode well for the future of France. We’ve got to make more effort to reconcile communities.”
But the above is concerning. How can you rationally say: "I am a murderous killer"? Or that you basically support the concept of murder in response to the drawing of cartoons?
