This week's attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris have galvanized the Gallic resolve against Islamic terrorists. The French firmly believe in the freedom of speech and millions have flooded the streets to show solidarity with the satirical magazine's right to portray Allah as a monster, Arabs as hook-nosed idiots, and Hassidim as filthy Jews mimicking the Nazi caricatures of the Third Reich. Nevertheless politicians across the globe rightfully condemned the killings, as French police sought the two 'terrorist' brothers from 'le Zone'. Even the military head of Hezbollah harshly denounced the murders at the Paris magazine by saying,""The behavior of the takfiri groups that claim to follow Islam have distorted Islam, the Koran and the Muslim nation more than Islam’s enemies ... who insulted the prophet in films... or drew cartoons of the Prophet."
I agree with Hasan Nasrallah, however the modern world's most dangerous extremism stems the spread of utter apathy to the conditions creating this atmosphere of hatred.
Today millions of American males changed the channel from the news to the NFL playoffs and dipped their hand into a bowl of potato chips.
Paris took a second seat to the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders and tomorrow the media will begin the week with late-breaking news.
As always apathy wins out over any urge for revenge.
