I bet you thought this kind of thing only occurred in bat guano insane sites like Salon and Islamist defenders on social media. Negative, though at least the NY Times Editorial Board waited till Monday to post their screed, which is long on complaints against those who stand against the radical Muslims, and short on actually blaming the radical Muslims
What Will Come After Paris
The terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, along with twin bombings in Beirut on the day before and the downing of a Russian jetliner over the Sinai Peninsula on Oct. 31, show a new phase in the Islamic State’s war against the West, a readiness to strike far beyond areas it controls in Iraq, Syria, and increasingly, Libya.
The challenge for threatened countries is huge. The sort of attacks the Islamic State, or ISIS, has launched are hard to anticipate or prevent, yet in Europe each one intensifies the raucous xenophobia of far-right nationalists ever ready to demonize Muslim citizens, immigrants and refugees, and shut down Europe’s open internal borders. The Islamic State must be crushed, but that requires patience, determination and the coordination of strategies and goals that has been sorely lacking among countries involved in the war on ISIS, especially the United States and Russia.
Got that? Europe has long been a hot-bed of importing radical Muslims, and allowing them to practice their extremist beliefs which include destroying Western society and killing Westerners. And now they are streaming in to European nations in huge numbers, the majority being young men, the exact type of recruit radical Islam likes. At least one of the Paris attackers had a Syrian passport. I think there’s a pretty darned good rationale for wanting to be damned cautious about the potential for Islamists.
President François Hollande of France defiantly declared the attacks in Paris “an act of war” and vowed a “pitiless” response. On Sunday, French warplanes bombarded Raqqa, the Syrian city that is an ISIS stronghold. Mr. Hollande is expected to offer other proposals when he addresses the French Parliament at a special session in Versailles on Monday. France already has some of Europe’s most intensive antiterrorist policing; adopting draconian measures of the sort demanded by far-right nationalists like Marine Le Pen of the National Front can only further alienate France’s Muslim population of five million, without offering any assurance against more attacks.
Only in Liberal World are they concerned with alienating people who have been showing that they do not want to integrate, but want Western nations to conform to their regressive beliefs. For the life of me, I don’t understand the Lefty position, since virtually everything the Islamists stand for is 100% against what Leftists stand for.
The NYTEB ends their missive thusly
The attacks in Paris sent a major shockwave around the world, and the Beirut bombings and the downing of the Russian civilian jetliner were every bit as horrific. ISIS has demonstrated that there is no limit to its reach, and no nation is really safe until they all come together to defeat this scourge.
Well, first off, one must recognize that to the Islamists (you can call them radical Muslims, extreme Muslims, etc) this is a religious war/movement. Here’s the mastermind

He’s holding a Koran and the ISIS flag. The flag itself says “There is no god but Allah. Mohammad is the messenger of Allah” at the top, and the round circle states “Mohammed is the messenger of God”.
Second, one must acknowledge that no one really knows who these people are. Would the NY Times allow someone totally unknown to wander around the newsrooms, or, better yet, the executive suits?
