Solidarity and Fear in France

Hosted by

Last week in Paris, 17 people were killed in terrorist attacks on a satirical magazine and a kosher grocery story.  Yesterday, some three million angry people took to the streets all over the country.  Despite that show of national unity, can France contain a backlash against Muslims…or increased anti-Semitism?  What's the potential impact on the rest of Europe?  

Also, Secretary of State John Kerry is in Pakistan for anti-terrorism talks, and the White House concedes it should have had higher-profile representation in France yesterday.  Will Republicans in Congress speed up funding for the Department of Homeland Security?
