Baku, Azerbaijan, November 14
By Anakhanum Khidayatova - Trend:
Unfortunately, terrorist attacks in Paris are going to trigger more anti-Muslim sentiments in Europe and Eurasia, at least in the short term. That will make the situation even more dangerous, Paul Goble, the publicist, the former analyst at CIA and the US Department of State, told Trend on Nov. 14.
He added it is too early to say exactly who is to blame in the world of international Islamist terrorism.
"When small groups of people are prepared to die for a cause, there is almost no way to guarantee that none of them will ever succeed. A regime that could do so would be one in which no one would have freedom", he said.
Numerous terrorist attacks were conducted in Paris on Nov. 13-14. Four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 87 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall.
Some 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium where French president Hollande and German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were watching a friendly soccer international.
Some 200 people were injured.
French President Francois Hollande today said 127 people died during the terrorist attacks in Paris. He also declared three days of mourning throughout the country.
