Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

There are few things that make my blood boil as much as religious extremism, and in modern times I find those claiming to act on behalf of Islam as the most insidious and by far the most dangerous.

Macron now either has to stick to his principles of supporting freedom of exprssion in a liberal country and deal with the fallout, or backtrack and appease the zealouts into stopping their madness.

In the end, France may just have to accept that as its Muslim population is now so large (8% in 2017 so likely now 10-15% in 2020) that the country has now irrevocably changed and the same level of freedom of expression that once existed in a predominantly Christian culture no longer applies as before.

This clash of cultures and ideals is likely only going to get worse as time goes on throughout Europe as Muslim populations and resulting levels of radicalism present within them increase.
