I have been working on a long essay concerning the terrorist attacks in France. I have been prompted to do this because I am dissatisfied with the stereotypical, nerveless public commentaries of these events.
The gist of my essay: Our respect for civil liberties must not result in the destruction of the foundation of the same civil liberties.
I ask my readers to give me their tolerance. I will be back here when I can. In the meantime, there are several past writings on this blog concerning Islam you might want to read.
