                    Nick Alexander died doing the job he loved, his family said
               

           

Home Secretary Theresa May will chair a Cobra meeting later to discuss the UK government's response to the attacks in Paris.

Britain's terror threat level is "severe", but Prime Minister David Cameron said it would reviewed.

Police said there would be strengthened policing at UK ports, and more officers at public events in the coming days.

It comes as Briton Nick Alexander, from Colchester, was named as among the 129 people killed in Friday's attacks.

The 36-year-old died in the attack at the Bataclan concert hall, where he is thought to have been selling merchandise.

His family described him as "generous, funny and fiercely loyal".

Friends of Mr Alexander also paid tribute to him on social media. Joe Trohman, lead guitarist of the rock band Fall Out Boy described him as a "great guy".

The Bishop of Chelmsford, the Right Reverend Stephen Cottrell, said he was praying for Mr Alexander's family and had sent a message of support to their local church.

A government source said there were fears a "handful" of other British people had been killed. An unspecified number are being treated in hospitals.

'Monsters'

The Bataclan concert hall suffered the deadliest attack during the wave of violence in Paris, which involved gunmen and suicide bombers. More than 80 people are believed to have died at the concert hall.

The US band Eagles of Death Metal were playing a gig when attackers burst into the venue and opened fire, but the band themselves survived unscathed.

Michael O'Connor, from South Shields, was at the concert hall when the gunmen attacked.

The 30-year-old lay on top of his girlfriend to protect her as other audience members were shot and killed. Both escaped unharmed after playing dead.

"What they want to do is to terrify us," he told BBC Radio 5 live's Stephen Nolan show.

"We can't let them win and these people just, they're just monsters, they're just, they don't represent anything, they're not Muslims, they're not, they're just animals.

"How can you walk in there, I mean, I'm 30 years old, I was probably the oldest, one of the oldest people in the gig.  It was full of teenagers and, you know, people in their early 20s going to see a band."

In other developments:

  • Landmarks across the UK, including London's Tower Bridge and Edinburgh Castle, were lit up in the colours of the Tricolour.

  • Flags were flown at half mast at Downing Street and the French Embassy in London.


  • A vigil has taken place in Trafalgar Square. Groups taking part included the Muslim Council of Britain and the Christian-Muslim Forum.

  • The London School of Economics tweeted that one of its former students, Valentin Ribet, had been killed in Paris. He was a French national.

So-called Islamic State (IS) has said it carried out the attacks, and Mr Cameron said it showed the threat from the group was "evolving", with a "new degree of planning and co-ordination and a greater ambition for mass-casualty attacks".

He added that the group's "aim is clear: it is to divide us and to destroy our way of life.

"So, more than ever, we should come together and stand united and carry on with the way of life that we love."

French President Francois Hollande said the attacks were an "act of war" by IS.

Talks about the security threat are expected later after leaders, including David Cameron, from the G20 countries meet in Turkey.

Have a look at an american assessment at :-
http://winteryknight.com/2015/11/14/mark-steyn-on-paris-terrorist-attacks-the-barbarians-are-inside-the-gates/

Before I'm accused of hating muslims let me stress most muslims want to live in peace, raising their families and running their buisnesses, but while they want to live in peace they are unlikely to do anything that will hinder islam becoming the state religion of this country.

We need to be aware that this is a spiritual struggle. One that is waged on many levals.

A large part is our christlikeness as seen by those around us.

Finally, some sense on the skillfully created immigration crisis, instead of all the idiot bleeding heart nonsense we get in the msm and on christian sites.
The whole immigration scenario was deliberately manufactured as a strategic weapon to destroy the Judeo Christian culture of the west.
In fact 80% are economic migrants who are don't even originate from Syria.

According to the UN. most of the migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Europe are adult men.ie. Men of Jihadi fighting age whose Islamic faith teaches them to despise christianity.

The number of migrants attempting the dangerous crossing has soared in the past two years, from about 22,000 in 2013 to about 380,000 so far this year. Seventy-two percent of them are adult men, while just 13 percent are women and 15 percent are children, the U.N. has calculated, based on reports from governments and the media.

If they were genuine refugees, they would be of majority old people, women and children. Instead, it is these people that are left behind.

Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)
