“France is at war. We are not in a war of civilizations. These assassins don’t represent a civilization. We are at war with jihadist terrorism which threatens the whole of the world and not only France.” So said French President François Hollande as he called for a global coalition to fight ISIS in the wake of Friday’s horrific attacks in Paris. “The faces of the dead, of the injured, of their families, haunt my mind. This memory feeds my unwavering resolution.” (Liberté, égalité, fraternité, sécurité.)

+ “ISIL is the face of evil.” President Obama gave a press conference on ISIS during the G20 meeting in Turkey, after apparently making some progress with Vladimir Putin regarding a political transition in Syria.

+ Hollande said the terrorist acts were “planned in Syria, organized in Belgium, perpetrated on our soil with French complicity.” A fierce manhunt is underway in France and Belgium as authorities search for Salah Abdeslam, who is believed to have taken part in the attacks; and Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the 27-year-old Belgian man currently believed to have plotted the mass murder.

+ WaPo on Molenbeek; the Belgian neighborhood indelibly linked to jihad.
