There’s no other word for the armed gunmen who killed 12 people in the attack last week on the Parisian offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
Once again, terrorists ignore the lessons of history: individuals may be silenced by violence from time to time, but ideas live on and ultimately will find their way to the world.
Once again, innocent lives are lost in the futile attempt to force one point of view onto others, or to prevent other points of view from being heard.
