    1. Whats the big deal – the attack on the synagogue was just random. As Twitchy reported, “Copenhagen was shaken early Sunday morning when shots were fired near a synagogue, injuring three, just hours after an attack at a free speech event attended by Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks left one dead and three injured. Police are unsure if the two shootings are connected in any way: the only safe assumption at this point is that the second shooting near the synagogue was a random attack, much like the recent hostage situation in the kosher deli in Paris.”
