German newspaper firebombed for running Charlie Hebdo cartoons

The German newspaper Hamburger Morgenpost was firebombed overnight for running Charlie Hebdo cartoons (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
With security services on high alert after a killing spree in Paris by Islamic extremists, police in the northern German port city of Hamburg said no one was injured in the blaze at the headquarters of the regional daily Hamburger Morgenpost, which caused only slight damage.
"Rocks and then a burning object were thrown through the window," a police spokesman told AFP.
"Two rooms on lower floors were damaged but the fire was put out quickly."
The Hamburger Morgenpost, known locally as the MOPO, had splashed the Charlie Hebdo cartoons on its front page after the massacre at the Paris publication, running the headline "This much freedom must be possible!"
So is the world standing up to radical Islam in Paris today? Not really. Today's march is all about shows and symbolism. Really standing up would require acknowledging that for many Muslims, Islam is nothing but a cult that justifies murder. 

And for those who have forgotten, three of the 9/11 hijackers, including leader Mohamed Atta, came from Hamburg.

Angela Merkel has not addressed the issue of the Euros not enforcing basic behavior laws on the streets, public transportation, etc., and, apparently, gave the green light to the groups undermining civilized Euro life. Boom! at the newspaper. She seems to think that wanting a Euro way of life to be achievable in Europe constitutes "hate in their hearts." If the Euros enforce laws, their historically usual way of deleting swaths of the Other could possibly convert to a new Enlightenment (the responsibility of the Individual to behave in a civilized manner in the streets).

Angela Merkel pleads with Germans not to attend anti-Muslim rallies after biggest march to date attracts 18,000 people
