The Islamist terrorists who killed 12 people at a French magazine in Paris on Wednesday were aiming to terrify the world.
What they did instead was united millions in support of free speech.
In London, Paris and Berlin, supporters thronged to downtown plazas to express support for the Charlie Hebdo, which was raided Wednesday by two Islamists screaming “Allahu akbar!” to commit murder over the magazine’s cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Bearing signs proclaiming “Je suis Charlie” (French for “I am Charlie”) the crowds were a sign that maybe Europe, in the process of being overrun by Muslim immigrants, might be waking up. Usually, it’s the “right wing” that gets tagged for being behind pro-Europe protests.
The size and nature of these demonstrations makes it clear how widely reviled Wednesday’s murders are.

Meanwhile, under the #jesuischarlie hashtag, messages poured in to Twitter from around the world.
