We need to be more open about Islamic terror

In the days since the Charlie Hebdo office was attacked, and twelve of its staff murdered by Islamic terrorists, I have been reading apologia over the attack – the most disgusting line is of the “I am not Charlie Hebdo because I don’t seek to offend” persuasion, where columnists pontificate about how the paper should have refrained from publishing its “blasphemous” and “offensive” cartoons and articles; as insidious, are the posts about how one ought to stay safe, and protect one’s employees, by not publishing content that could incite an attack, a stance which many senior editors have taken, either for the love of being different, or – less forgivably – for the love of peace.

First of all, has there been anything as uninteresting as a politically correct satirical paper?
