    Breaking News: Paris's Notre Dame: Police responding to 'gunshots'

    Police in Paris say they are responding to an alert at the Notre Dame cathedral amid reports of gunshots and panic.

    Officials have told people to stay away from the area, one of the French capital's most popular tourist sites.

    Reports suggest a man attacked a police officer with a hammer and was later shot.

    France is in a state of emergency since attacks by jihadists in Paris left 130 people dead in 2015.

But I thought you guys have answers and solutions that the Home Office may not be aware of. I am certainly very unskilled and inexperienced compared to them, I just let them get on with it.What is your purpose anyway, what do you want as outcome? Just write to your MP and go along to his/her surgery and tell them like you tell here.


    Perhaps if a few more people actually wanted to help the authorities, then more of those radicalised would be arrested before harming others?

    It's not "okay" to leave it to the authorities.

    That's my exact point, it's called turning a blind eye, and you gave a perfect example.

    Anyone who knows of any plan, discussion, or desire to hurt or harm others, yet chooses not to report that concern, are as guilty as the perpetrators of that act.

    If this attacker is from IS then he is merely following the mandate which states that irrespective of the wars they would still want to kill people in The West, wouldn't you agree?

    Not sure I can ever understand that.

    Additionally I am pretty sure that if Assad, Putin, The West all withdrew from Syria that IS or AQ radicals would still continue to target innocents.

    In the case of a lot, though not all (Westminster attacker) these people are poor.

    For people who don't know, you say your from East Ham or Barking that's bad stuff. Lots of these muslim immigrants who live there are in HMO's (houses in multiple occupation) or beds in sheds or just terrible accommodation. By all UK standards, those are in general filled with a lot of modern slums.

    Little no education, little no hope in life. They may have been brought here by parents who lived in poverty in other countries, to essentially live in poverty and hopelessness in the UK.

    UK government and citizens let them come regardless of housing crisis in the full knowledge that these people have very little hope or change of getting anywhere.

    These places are fertile breeding grounds for terrorists and extremists. There situation promotes those beliefs, in a similar way you will find poor areas like Bootle in Liverpool which no doubt harbour white people, in the same situations, feeling the same way which breeds extremism at the other end of the scale.

    Sadly a lot of these home grown terrs. are just a product of letting people come where, and then doing nothing to help them. Which turns hurts us, and hurts your children as they take up places to live or create places you would not want to live.

    You do realise that the antithesis of your argument is that we should only be concerned if IS commit acts of terrorism in the UK. That acts of terrorism committed elsewhere are, by that argument, no concern of ours.

    Now I am sure that you don't mean that. But do you see why IS supporters might view any attacks on them in any country as justification for carrying out terrorist attacks wherever they want, irrespective of the country of origin of the terrorist who does it. It's all very well identifying the problem, which Misc is very good at, but it's viable solutions that are needed not endless rhetoric.

    You are talking twaddle, the Manchester scumbag had been to University, the London Bridge attackers all had jobs, there is one thing and one thing only that all theses scumbags have in common and to try and twist it otherwise is shameful and part of the problem.

    Stop letting seriously needy people come here for a short period to give us a break. So we can divert funds to improving situations. Then think about better distributing new immigrants.

    For example, non work visa immigrants are subject to 8 -10 year location licences on where they can live. Thus making it the case that they enter "British life" rather then coming to the UK to live "pakistan" (just picking a place) community life except in the UK as opposed to pakistan.

    That's a fair take or leave it type policy, other countries they can go to do not offer that kind of rule and they are free to move there.

    Like wise Brits should be encourages to ensure that there new location licenced immigrant is made to feel like they fit in.

    Stop swamping areas, creating ghettos, fueling further povety etc.

    You are trying to equate things in rational ways. These are not rational people.

    The only way to try to stop this is from support within the Muslim population. Until leaders say no and help police, it cant be stopped. Where is this radicalisation taking place? In schools? In Mosques? If we find there are hot spots and leaders are turning a blind eye or involved, then close them down and take the teachers off the streets. We need to take back control and once the lawyers loose their EU human court of appeal nest eggs, I suspect many extremists will find themselves deported too as undesirables.

    Its a start. What I dont accept is excuses to justify.

    Unfortunately the answer is really rather simple.

    There are more and more attacks because too many people within their religion, within other countries, have sympathy to their cause.

    Too many muslims turn a blind eye.

    Too many ignore the discussions they hear within their own homes and do nothing.

    And too many want to see the spread of their religion, ignoring history and customs of where they live.

    Visit Burnley, Blackburn, Luton and many other traditional Towns of hard working backgrounds.

    They have become enclaves of religious isolation. Towns now alien to their Christian backgrounds.

    Difficult questions as to why this has been allowed to happen must take place. Then even tougher answers need to be put into practice to resolve those issues.
