    Photos Via Meadia are universal representation: our world recognizes the human factor (the relationship of the human being [Nation of France – its citizens] to the circumstances in which he [Frenchmen] finds himself. There are no easy solutions to this crisis.

    In countries where Muslims are in the minority, they are obsessed with minority rights, In countries where Muslims are in the majority, they are no minority rights.

      This is probably going to get me into trouble but in countries where (your choice of religion/ethnicity here) are in the minority, they are obsessed with minority rights, etc.

    Yeah. The world stands with France for a brief moment. We stood with the during Charlie Hebdo– until we decided that, really, there should be limits on insulting religion…well, one religion anyway.

    Soon enough (in fact it’s already happening) the discussion will shift to the “but” mode as it always does. But, really, this is blowback from French imperialist, racist involvement in Mali and Syria, but it has to do with Sykes-Picot, but it’s because France must better integrate its muslims, but it’s because France is racist, but it’s because muslims are unemployed in France, but it’s because we need more muslims in Western societies so they have a stake in Western success.

    For my part, as callous as this may sound, I am all “tragedied” out. We can’t even name the problem, much less deal with it effectively. Which means we will have more of this…um…”criminal activity” in the future. We need to shrug and move on with our lives.

      If what you are saying is that refusal to face the fact that radical Islamism is the problem, I couldn’t agree more. Unhappily, if we don’t acknowledge the issue, we are likely (like Parisians) to find it difficult to move on with our lives.
