At Eurovision 2015 Lisa Angell sang of perseverance and French resolve against terror. That message resonated after the Charlie Hebdo attacks, and it does once again following the Paris Attacks that have left at least 140 people dead at the Bataclan concert hall and other venues. Eurovision stars inside and outside of France have taken to social media to respond. From Conchita Wurst to Anggun, here are their words.

Leggo solo ora del disastro a Parigi … E mi chiedo dove arriveremo ? Il terrore e la distruzione non conoscono frontiere .. Non si deve morire in nome di nessun dio .. Di nessuna ideologia .. Per nessuna bandiera .. Il pensiero libero e la libertà per me sono sinonimi di vita, ognuno dovrebbe avere la possibilità e il diritto di essere e di pensare e di vivere senza la paura di morire per la mano di qualcun altro . L’odio ha gettato le fondamenta nella vita di quasi tutti noi .. L’odio vince sulla vita .. L’odio ci ha messo tutti contro .. A partire dalle stronzate fino ad arrivare alle cose più importanti .. Facciamoci tutti delle domande.. Ragioniamo e cerchiamo di capire quanto ogni singola nostra azione scaturisce una reazione .. C’è troppa devastazione .. C’è poco equilibrio .. Il culto della morte non può vincere suo culto della vita .. Ognuno di noi ha il dovere di cambiare e migliorare la vita di tutti. #Parigi #nelcuore A photo posted by Emma Marrone (@real_brown) on

Love is always stronger than hate. Though traumas such as this should unite people to fight against hate.
Sadly some people will start a witch-hunt on Muslims because they only see examples such as this while ignoring the majority of Muslims who believe in peace and does nothing criminal.
And no, shutting borders isn’t a solution because that is giving in to fear and that’s exactly what IS wants. And we should never let the terrorists wins.

And no. blaming it on the migrant crisis is stupid. These people are escaping because of IS. We have the same enemy.

What worries me mostly is the aftermath of all this: for how long will we still be defining a Muslim and an extremist Islamic as the same thing out of fear, anger and prejudice? A free and open-minded Europe … vs … a fore than million-year-old-religious group and culture that looks at the whole world as enemies that need to be killed. How to surpass or even win this? I don’t think we have the power to find that answer … and soon enough another attack will take place god knows where 🙁
