This truly angers me

BBC News - Charlie Hebdo: Gun attack on French magazine kills 12

All the people killed were senior citizens between 55 and 80.

Obviously a threat

It wasn't their age, physical acumen or attributes . . . it was their minds and ideas that made them a threat to their killers

Huh? Not that it's a bad thing because I am really not too keen on the idea of the rest of the world think we are all like you but I would not be surprised if the odds of getting killed in the US were higher (auto, homicide, bad health) in the US than many places abroad.

More on topic, I agree that their age had little or nothing to do with their murder.

All because they dared draw and satirize he who must not be drawn or satirized.

It's mind boggling.

I'm not following. What is the difference? What if it had been an infant? Teenager? Young adult? Middle aged adult? Does your age make it any worse?

Every year the State Dept publishes, BY LAW, a report on terrorism attacks for Congress.
Now they have subcontracted it to the University of Maryland.

Here's a reference for a recent year.

Thanks my friend.

That report was informative but only covered us private citizens.

Satarizing can be a good thing. In no way do I justify what the attackers did but I do question the methods of Charlie Hebdo. This one here strikes me as something less than satire - translation - 'the Koran is $h!t, cannot stop bullets':

If you kill a bunch of Babies and end up in Jail or Prison you are going to find out that even the worst of the worst have higher standards then you do.

How many 100s of years have they hated the West and any Infidels?

We were never considered their Friends and are likely never going to be. What class do Infideles fit into in Muslim Society?

With the end of the Ciolonial Systems that apparently kept them under some control and the Soviet Union supplying Weapons and Explosives the poor Muslims as time has passed they have gradually been upping their Game.
The creation of the Jewish State was a huge uniting factor.

Note that none of the above was caused by anthing recent.

The general idea I got from something in the past that I read is that the whole Muslims in the Middle East are dissastified by their existance (they are no better off as a colony run by their own Governments) and not unlike Mussolinie harked back to Acient Rome when Italy was great the Muslims are trying to hark back to I think it was called the 3 right Caliphates.

Along with the above the Nations like Saudi Arabia have a lot of Money that they are using to try to get the Western influance out of the Middle East.

Sorry I am not spell checking.
