The triple day massacre in France shook every sane human being to the very core. We are all Charlie Hepdo and Hyper Cacher.

The execution of two well coordinated Terrorist attacks on very specific targets over 72 hours shows advanced training and makes it imperative that security forces around the world ratchet up their vigilance and intelligence gathering. The world must gear up for many more such attacks. Israel has been facing this level of terrorism for years. As a result Israel should be used as the ultimate model for fighting Terror.

The West would do well to stop criticizing Israel in its fight against Terror and begin to learn valuable lessons from their experience. We are all in this together. If you have not noticed there is a worldwide Jihad going on. It started around the time of the first World Trade Center bombings in 1993. The terrorists are getting more sophisticated.The world has to realize that it is a real true blue war not just a few "lone rangers" on the prowl. It is a massive fallacy to think that it is just a few rabid extremists perpetrating these actions. Every time the terrorists are not thwarted before they act empowers and emboldens the next terror cell to try its hand. Copy- Cat cells are around the Globe.

They can strike at a moment's notice. Being prepared is only half the battle. Due Diligence is the more difficult half. The Kouachi brothers were on everybody's radar screen yet were able to do whatever they wanted to do. This is totally unacceptable. This should never have been the case. America could have done better with the Boston Marathon Tsarnaev brothers too. Interestingly, both sets of brothers were affiliated with Al Qaeda in Yemen. No one seemed to see a need to act pre-emptively in either case. This is not the first time that the West's Security Forces failed to see anything coming. Before 9/11 there were other terrorist incidents that should have awakened our Intelligence Community.

In 1998 there were the bombings of two Embassies in East Africa-80 people died. In 2000, the USS Cole was bombed -17 U.S. Sailors were killed. America had been warned but did not prepare itself adequately before 9/11. Instead of castigating Police forces in America, the Police should be praised for the fine work it is doing on a daily basis to stop Terrorism. We need them after the Charlie Hepdo and Hyper Cacher massacres more than ever.

 The Police now need to be on Hyper-Alert. One of the main targets in Paris were the Police. The White House needs to reboot its entire view of "Radical Islam" and Jihad. The President's reticence to use the word "Terrorists" when it comes to Muslims must do an about-face. The President's failure to speak of radical Islamists or Jihadists does not a whit of good and actually causes harm. It is absurd to keep up this practice. The presence of Mahmoud Abbas at the huge Rally in France on January 11th makes no sense.

This is the same man who praises terrorists who kill Israelis in pizza stores and shopping malls. This is utter and sheer Hypocrisy. It does not help the War on Terror that now has to be waged like never before. Je parle aussi le Francais. The events in France this past week will energize the fight against terror. The world cannot rest till it is won.
