A murderous blame game

MercatorNet has published my recent thoughts on the blaming of Charlie Hebdo:

Are we so accustomed to ‘random acts of terror’ that we jump at the chance to identify the non-random nature of this massacre? Are we so deeply impressed by the long-standing notion that ‘they hate us for who we are’, that we get excited when, for once, they clearly hate us for what we do? Better still, that they hate someone for something that I don’t particularly like either?
