Je Suis Charlie ! The Cry Of Defiance !

Je Suis Charlie! The cry of defiance!

Many years ago in a film, words were spoken, we applauded the sentiment, the words and the action, we agreed with the philosophy, but we all did nothing!
When will the world wake up and realise
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
Some words from a film, edited for the current crisis. Some people may recognise the film?
"The dead remember our indifference."
"The dead remember our silence".
Today when we see the camps, overwhelmed by the flood of refugees fleeing from the horror of terrorism, we realized we don't deserve to be congratulated. 
None of us do.
Let's speak the truth.
And the truth is, we act too late.
Only when our own national security is threatened do we act.
These terrorists have murdered many 100,000's men, women and children and we watched it on TV.
We let it happen.
People are being slaughtered over years and we issued economical sanctions and hid behind a rhetoric of diplomacy.
How dare we?
"The dead remember."
Real peace is not just the absence of conflict, it's the presence of justice. And tonight, we come to you with a pledge to change the World's policy. Never again will we allow our political self-interest to deter us from doing what we know to be morally right. Atrocity and terror are not political weapons and to those who would use them - Your day is over. We will never negotiate. We will no longer tolerate and we will no longer be afraid.
"It's your turn to be afraid."
Please share and maybe, just maybe, one world leader will see this and agree that there are SOME GOOD MEN LEFT
