France will take "all measures" to ensure the safety of Sunday's march to be attended by European leaders after this week's attacks and is maintaining its highest possible security level in the Paris area, the interior minister said.

Speaking on Saturday after an emergency meeting with French President Francois Hollande, Bernard Cazeneuve said "we want to keep the high level of mobilisation and vigilance."

"All measures have been taken to assure the security of the rally," he said, after Hollande warned that the threats facing France were not over.

A number of European leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron plan to make an extraordinary show of support for France by joining the mass rally in Paris on Sunday.

The rally comes as the country mourns 17 dead in three blood-soaked days that shook the nation to its core.

Hollande held an emergency meeting of key ministers early Saturday, hours after the dramatic end to twin sieges that resulted in the death of two brothers who had killed 12 at the offices of the Charlie Hebdo weekly on Wednesday.

French forces were hunting for the girlfriend of an Islamist gunman who also died on Friday when security forces stormed a Jewish supermarket in eastern Paris where he had taken terrified shoppers hostage. Hayat Boumeddiene was said to be "armed and dangerous".

Publicity Stunt
They should also invite Tony Blair, Barrack Obama and George Bush II, to this Anti-Terrorist Rally, along with David Cameron. This is a big publicity stunt, denouncing Terrorism while having a War Criminal like David Cameron attend. Zionists have a big Network, to Organize Protests in a Flash now, then their Media shows up, if only 20 people are there, they will take a 'Close Shot' with their Camera's to make it look like a huge protest. The message is clear, if you shoot 12 people, we Zionists that control France can get a huge protest but if you support the Murder of Millions of Muslims in The Middle East, done by The U.S.A., there is nothing wrong with that, there will be no protests to that.

False Flags Continue
Public opinion about jews in France have forced Israel, and jews who live in France, to commit this false flag to scare the people. Benjamin Nitwityahoo said openly that there will be more attacks. All of this was too planned. Funny how their getaway car was parked in front of a kosher restaurant. The only way this evil will be exposed is to catch the Zionists red-handed. Until that day....the attacks against humanity will continue. There are so many loopholes in this fake hollywood terror plot. Let's not forget about the roof video! a couple of people on the roof were wearing bullet proof vests. There's a video on "before it's news" that shows the video footage was edited, removing police and inserting the shooters!!! What a joke. These Zios and their hatred for Islam just never cease to amaze me. They make me puke!
