On Wednesday, January 7, 2015, Paris became victim to a terrorist attack, where militants opened fire with shotguns in the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people and wounding several others. In another terror attack, on Friday, four Jewish hostages were killed at a kosher supermarket in the eastern part of Paris. The world showed solidarity with France a few days’ later where prominent leaders from all around the world, including Muslim leaders, walked arm in arm on the streets of Paris, to pay tribute to the victims that lost their lives. Despite this grand gesture of unity, one which condemned the acts as being a violation of freedom of speech, Iran seems to be the odd one out. Other than the current regime staying silent while others proactively condemned the acts, a senior Iranian cleric has actually expressed his pleasure at the terrorist attacks that left 17 dead, labeling the participants in the mass rally as 'murderers'.
