    A heroic young Muslim hid Jewish hostages in a freezer as they sought refuge from a killer during a siege at a Kosher supermarket.

    Lassana Bathily, originally from Mali in west Africa, is said to have shepherded terrified customers to safety in a chiller as the Islamist gunman took hold of the Hyper Cacher supermarket in Porte de Vincennes, Paris, yesterday.

    Coulibaly executed four of the 19 hostages before police stormed the building and ended the terror, killing the gunman as he attempted to flee.

    "There are several people who came to me. I turned off the light, I turned off the freezer.

    "When I turned off the cold, I put them (hostages) in, I closed the door, I told them to stay calm."

    Reports in France state Mr Bathily, 24, helped lead six people to safety.

    Another nice heartwarming story that undoubtedly will be ruined by noon by either right wing or left wing bullshit when it was a simple act of extraordinary human courage. Just a good person who has to be unfairly labeled for something you hope any human would do for another in danger.

    They missed the part were he escaped out of the loading dock and was thrown to the ground and arrested because they thought he was one of the terrorists.

    No, I'm not kidding.:happyno:

    Okay... my question is: Just what was a nice young Muslim man from Mali doing in a Parisian kosher grocery store in the first place? Stocking up on gefilte fish and matzoh?

    We might be a bunch of cynics, but in reality, they should give the guy French citizenship for what he did. That's the kind of person you want to represent your country. He saved many people by his actions, it was very impressive.

    The place had plenty of Muslim customers due to the fact that both Religions avoid the swine. :pig:

    If I get into a pinch like that, I'm hiding them in the dishwasher. They'll thank me later.

    He was obviously just trapping the dirty jews in the freezer so it'd be easier for the gunman to shoot them later.

    He's probably got it already as a refuge from Mali, which was once part of French Colonial Africa. :grad:

    Good for him, though. I'm glad he and the folks he helped made it out alive. :jumpclap:

    Umm, quick point of order. Before we allow ourselves to get too outraged by this allegation, let's be real for just a second. The truth is that, under the circumstances, Ronald McDonald would have been thrown to the ground and arrested had he been caught trying to sneak out of the back of that market in the midst of the ongoing hostage crisis.

    Oh, I agree. I like having all the facts, not just the feel good kumbaya crap.
