Islamist terrorists shot and killed 12 people at the Paris offices of the satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, in an apparent retaliation for cartoons depicting the Islamic prophet, Mohammed. One suspect surrendered to police, and two other gunmen were killed after a massive manhunt. A third terrorist was killed after taking hostages in a kosher supermarket in suburban Paris. Four hostages also were reported killed.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed outrage at the attacks and solidarity with the people of France.
• Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke for the first time about the attacks, saying that the "international jihadist movement has declared war."
• Palestinian leaders are attempting to join the International Criminal Court and charge Israel with war crimes.
• A blizzard hit Israel this week, leaving tens of thousands without power, closing schools, and shutting down major roads.
