Just heard about #ParisBeheading. I'll echo the words of @EmmanuelMacron.

“One of our compatriots was assassinated today because he taught...his students about freedom of expression, freedom to believe or not believe...He was the victim of a terrorist Islamist attack"
The tired old phrase "terrorism doesn't have a religion" is wrong. This act has been clearly done in the name of God, although it can be credibly argued that the terrorists have a warped version of religion in their heads.
Muslim communities around the world should figure out how to tackle it. Why? Because nation-states will use their power of violence to suppress it which has not given us the desired result - peace.
I'm not "balancing" this out by writing about other religions. Today, the discussion should be around making sure extremist views are eliminated, especially among at-risk Muslim youth.
