Hello, Ilya and Daniel

Things have certainly gotten "ugly" in Europe, when one considers the terrorist attacks and rapes against indigenous Europeans by Muslims. This "ugliness" has spread into other realms, though: I am shocked to see today, an attack against Christians celebrating Mass, by FRENCH RIOT POLICE:
