Lassana Bathily, who worked at the market that came under attack, led a group of customers into a cold storage from to hide from the gunmen. He then risked his life, taking an elevator out into the street to connect with the police and explain the layout of the store, the AFP reported on Thursday.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Bathily will be awarded French citizenship on Tuesday.

“We’re brothers. It’s not a question of Jews, Christians or Muslims,” Bathily told a French news channel. “We’re all in the same boat, and we have to help one another to get out of this crisis.”

John Fugelsang “Friends, here’s the bible lesson for the day, and it might come in handy for Christians, or atheists, or sane people of any faiths.  Because, right wing gun enthusiast Christians have new ammo in their fight to prove you can be a follower of Jesus while also enjoying weapons designed to kill lots of people in a short amount of time.  It’s Luke 22:36 and it’s become a mantra for fun loving, gun loving, father and the the son loving Christians.  And whatever you think of religion, you may well encounter this taking point.  It’s part of Luke’s account of what happened to Jesus right before the Roman soldiers came to arrest him, throw him in a Roman prison, and execute him with a Roman crucifix, or as Glen Beck puts it, killed by the Jews.  Now, in Luke 22:36 Jesus tells his apostles that he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.  Now, this might surprise some of you who don’t remember the part in the Bible when Jesus turned water into a vest (?).  But, go ahead and search Luke 22:36 on Twitter.  Tons of Christians are throwing this around like the last part of the second amendment, conveniently forgetting the well regulated militia part.  It suits their tastes just fine, as long as you don’t read the rest, and put it all into context.  And, they’re saying this means Jesus is pro gun, the modern day sword.  But, what Jesus is really doing is talking about prophecy and being a criminal.  Because, as soon as Jesus throws down his line about buying a sword, he adds that they only need swords because the prophecy says they’re meant to be criminals.  Quote ‘For I say unto you that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, and he was reckoned among the transgressors.’  See, he’s not talking about defending yourself, he’s talking about having a sword as a prop so he can get arrested and fulfill the prophecy.  And the very next line the apostles say, hey Jesus, we’ve already got two swords here with us, and Jesus says that’s enough.  Jesus never sends them out to buy swords, no one ever buys a sword, and in fact when the jack-sandaled government thugs swoop in to arrest him, also known as Alex Jones’ wet dream, it’s Peter who pulls a sword and cuts off some guy’s ear.  Does Jesus join the fight?  No, he heals the wounded guy and tells his friends those who live by the sword, shall die by the sword.  In other words, my Judeo-Christian friends, Jesus never comes out against owning swords, but he’s pretty seriously against using them.  Of course, if Jesus had an AK-47 he could have mowed down the Romans, never been crucified, never had a religion named for him, and none of us would have to know who Pat Robertson was.  So remember, the best weapon for refuting these Bible thumpers, tends to be the Bible itself.  Because, the only way you can cling to both the Bible and a gun, is if you totally agree to not read the Jesus parts.  Here endeth the lesson.”

Sean Hannity 1-4-13 “Let’s not forget what Al Jazeera is known for.  Now, this is the network where Osama bin Laden went when he wanted to get his message out to the world…Something’s wrong with this picture.”

Bill O’Reilly “Al Gore sold his cable network to, wait for it, Al Jazeera, the anti-American network out of Qatar.”

Fox Reporter “He sells his news network to a clearly anti-American news channel called Al Jazeera.  What?  Are you kidding me?”

Stewart “Oh my God.  That means Muslims will be able to see into our homes.  You know that, right?  People on TV can see into your homes.  Put on your pants.  Now look.  Al Jazeera’s Arabic channel has broadcast some very hateful stuff.”

Sheikh Usef al-Qaradani “Oh Allah, take the oppressive Jewish, Zionist, band of people….”

Stewart “Worst Hanukkah special ever.  That is hateful, although the network that would air in Current’s place isn’t the Al Jazeera that runs in the Arab world , it’s Al Jazeera English, which is actually a pretty well respected news outlet.  Still, Al Jazeera Arabic is a subsidiary of the group Gore sold to, so let’s take a look at some of their other programs.”

Saudi Cleric Salman Al-Odeh 8-13-12 “The roll of the Jews is to wreak destruction, to wage war…The Jews believe that they have the right to kill anyone who does not adhere to their religion…They were making matzos with human blood.  The eat it believing that this brings them close to their false god, Yahweh.”

Stewart “You know, if that were true, you’d think matzo would be more flavorful, but it’s not.  Very dry, very plain.  You know, that’s just awful.  To air that on Al Jazeera, oh, I’m sorry.  That didn’t air on Al Jazeera.  I’m sorry, that aired on a network called Rotana.  That’s my fault.  That’s another television station in the Arab world.  That one’s owned, not by Qatar, but by a Saudi prince named Al-Waleed bin Talal, and also, twenty percent of that is owned by, oh, a guy named Rupert Murdoch.  Huh?  That last name, that’s familiar, but I can’t place what his other holdings are.  But, uhm, Rotana’s the same network that aired Valley of the Wolves, a movie in which American soldiers are the bad guys, massacring Iraqi civilians, and stealing Arab’s organs to sell them to Jews.  I don’t even know what to say.  I mean, Rupert Murdoch, profiting from the airing of that type of anti-American propaganda.”
