    Those who carry out this barbaric behaviour believe in what they are doing. They believe they are doing good. They believe they are doing the will of Allah as revealed in the Koran. And they believe their barbaric behaviour will be rewarded by Allah in heaven. And they are prepared to die for their beliefs.
    The are also prepared (as in "equipped with heavy weaponry") to *kill* for their beliefs.

    And in this, they have an advantage of sorts in asymmetrical warfare: hedonists may happen to "fight for their right to party". But the individual hedonist is going to be relatively unlikely, to be WILLING to die for any cause greater than himself, or even for his right to have a good time...the costs are too high.

    The only rational response to this is for the French to put Muhammad on their damn stamps.

    And free speech is the very basis of liberal democracy, so if we wish to replace liberal democracy with totalitarian Sharia, it makes perfect sense to attack free speech with violence.

    And we notice that the totalitarian Left in our universities have for some time used the tactic of disrupting free speech on campus by refusing to let the speakers be heard.
