Un peuple se leve

This is a communist paper (yes, they have those in France), covering Sunday's mass rallies in France ("Je suis Charlie"). They are probably just referencing Francine de la Gorce's book, "A People Rises: 1963-1968," but I wonder if they caught the other reference (see below). Being atheists, I would think not. The Biblical reference is a hell of a lot more frightening, especially if you are an Islamist living in France.

Numbers 23:24

"C'est un peuple qui se lève comme une lionne, Et qui se dresse comme un lion; Il ne se couche point jusqu'à ce qu'il ait dévoré la proie, Et qu'il ait bu le sang des blessés."



"The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims."
