France Declares State of Emergency as Terror Attacks Leave Scores Dead (VIDEO)

Oh boy.

Here we go again. And nothing will change. You'll see an initial outpouring of faux resolve, and then it will be right back to where it was before: kowtowing to Islamic jihad, afraid of being attacked as "racist" by the terror-loving left.

At Atlas Shrugs, "Jihad in Paris: Scores DEAD, Mass Murder across French Capital with Dozens taken HOSTAGE," and Jihad Watch, "France seals borders, declares emergency as Muslims murder at least 60."

And at the New York Times, "In Paris, Multiple Attacks in Deadly Night of Terror":

PARIS — France reeled Friday night from a shooting rampage, explosions and mass hostage-taking that convulsed the Paris area in what the president called an unprecedented terrorist attack on his country. His government closed the borders and mobilized the military in a national emergency.

French television and news services quoted the police as saying at least 60 people had been killed and many dozens wounded in at least four apparently coordinated attacks, far eclipsing the deaths and mayhem that roiled Paris in the Charlie Hebdo massacre and related assaults around the French capital less than a year ago.

One of the explosions struck near the country’s main sports stadium where Germany and France were playing a soccer match, forcing a hasty evacuation of President Fran├žois Hollande. As the scope of the assaults quickly became clear, he convened an emergency cabinet meeting and announced France was closing its borders.

“As I speak, terrorist attacks of an unprecedented scale are taking place in the Paris region,” he said in a nationally televised address. “There are several dozen dead, lots more wounded, it’s horrific.”

Mr. Hollande said on his orders the government had “mobilized all the forces we can muster to neutralize the threats and secure all of the areas.”

President Obama in Washington came to the White House Briefing room to express solidarity and offer aid and condolences. “Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians,” he said. “This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.”

And see London's Daily Mail, "At least 60 dead in series of terror attacks as Kalashnikov-wielding gunman opens fire in restaurant, 100 hostages are taken at theater, two blasts are heard near stadium and gunfire is reported at mall."

Plus, at Sky News on Twitter, "Hostages appear to be leaving #Bataclan concert hall; attackers are reportedly killed in police siege #ParisAttacks..."

DEVELOPING. I'll have more.
