    Now they are saying hostages could be around 100. Deaths have climbed from 18 to 35 so far.

    This is terrible.

    Update: The news just announce a possible but as yet an unconfirmed 4th attack.

    Update again: now up to 6 different locations all over the city.

    I would imagine with significant holidays coming up - the bad guys will be out in full force. This has been a terrible drain on the Paris security force. I think terrorists like this do not fear bullets - next to what they do to humans - a bullet is probably the least painful thing that could happen to them.

    Dying the death of a martyr in Islam is considered an honor.

    This is unfortunately the reality we are living in today. My prayers are with the Paris victims, my family and all the victims in Israel and with us here in America. May we all stay safe.

    The sad thing is that France banned guns from all the citizens and even had some of their Police officers unarmed. If they did have anything to defend themselves, they could have at least given the Terrorists a fight.
