Je Suis Ahmed

I was incredibly moved today by the accounts of the Paris police officer, story  Ahmed Merabet, who bravely confronted the terrorists yesterday as they fled the Charlie Hebdo offices. He was killed in the process. He was a Muslim confronting Muslim terrorists who attacked the newspaper in an attempt to silence free speech. Perhaps this was expressed best by @Aboujahjah, who posted: “I am not Charlie, I am Ahmed the dead cop. Charlie ridiculed my faith and culture and I died defending his right to do so.”
