  • Sharpening Contradictions: Why al-Qaeda attacked Satirists in Paris
    • I agree, Mark. This seemed to me to be simply a revenge attack on a notorious (in their minds) target, the subject of various fatwahs. Juan may be overthinking this - or, to be more charitable, the Al Queda/ISIS backers may be thinking more strategically than these 2 guys (but then we don't know if they named the target of their own initiative.

      Having just returned from Paris, if Juan is right, this was a strategic error. I was amazed at the resolute anger about defending free expression from all Parisians I heard and spoke with. This is likely to cause far greater European resolve in fighting terror rather than in generating a right-wing backlash.
