Well, that was a shitty week. It’s hard to grasp that there are actually people out there, so misguided, so cruel, and so barbaric that a cartoon drives them to kill a dozen people. Let’s hope that this murder is a wake-up call to some people to look at what they are doing, and change their ways.
And while it certainly seems that Islam is more susceptible to this sort of nonsense than other religions, it’s important to recognize that this is no more representative of all Muslims than Pegida is of Germans or the KKK of Americans.
We still need to find a workable strategy to deal with these radicals, but heaping hate on Muslims isn’t it.
