Paris tragedies

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-30746910

This link from the BBC website is a passionate and sad comment from someone who knows Paris well and was acquainted with one of the victims of this weeks’s terrible events.

I was particularly struck by the comment from the imam of Drancy: “We can argue over liberty, but when we’re in disagreement we respond to art with art, to wit with wit. We never respond to a drawing with blood. No! Never! These victims are martyrs, and I pray for them with all my heart.”
