Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

Regardless of what religion these murderers followed, it was their free will that caused them to commit these acts. The entire religion of Islam does not deserve to be blamed for the acts of a few of its misguided followers, just as the entire religion of Christianity (for example) should not be blamed if some freak decides to bomb an abortion clinic.

These murderers (probably) wanted to be martyrs. I think we should not grant them that wish by allowing what they did to cause even more tensions between the Muslim and the non-Muslim world.
