A moment to send my prayers to Brussels. I can only hope it doesn’t get any worse.
I’m sure we’ll endlessly hear about “outreach,” “not all Muslims,” and “tolerance” when what we really need to focus on is how the Paris attacker (who I’d place bets is involved) managed to elude authorities.
There is no outreach for a murderous ideology that will work. It didn’t work in 1938, it won’t work now. Pretending any different is lunacy and putting lives at risk. Fine, it’s not all Muslims, but it’s enough to kill thousands a year and occupy a chunk of territory brutally dispatching with opponents. It’s enough that it needs to be dealt with.
