PARIS, France – France continues on high alert, as new videos surface warning of the potential for more terror attacks.

But Sunday, the people of France were united, sometimes arm-in-arm, as more than 3 million people took the streets across the country to show their support for freedom.

Among the world leaders taking part: Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas.

However, President Obama was not there.

Neither was Vice President Biden.

Ditto for Secretary of State Kerry.

Attorney General Eric Holder was in town, but he was a no-show at the march. All of which had White House press secretary Josh Ernest apologizing. “And I think it's fair to say that we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.”

Meantime, French authorities have more than political slights to worry about. Authorities want to know what happened to Hayat Boumeddiene, the girlfriend of the kosher market killer Amedy Coulibaly. They think she flew to Turkey on her way to Syria.

In this country, police in New York and other cities are on high alert because of standing terrorist threats to kill police, military personnel, and civilians.

And, the war against jihadist terrorists has some new allies. Members of the anonymous group Anonymous have declared cyber war against ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terror groups.

“We will dump all personal information on every terrorist that we come across. We will not sleep until you are brought to your knees.”

One group’s website is now the DuckDuckGo search engine site, which may be Anonymous’s way of telling the terrorists to go duck themselves.
