VPR Vermont’s NPR News Source: “Samia Hathroubi of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding said this is not a clash of civilizations, but rather a clash of ‘humanity and brotherhood against inhumanity and blind violence.’”
Middle East Eye: “Sadly the victims represent well what France is: young and multicultural. This is what the terrorists were targeting. That way, as French people, we are all victims of them. For instance, a friend of mine, Fatoumate, who wears the hijab, she hasn’t been out for two days now. Me and her are not living the same reality. Obviously I’m less ‘visible’ than her. But we won’t cave in.”
