and especially: What has this faceless terrorist done to our world?
Not only he killed innocent people; he has robbed many people of the characteristics that made democracy work: a sensible degree of tolerance and trust in our fellow humans.
Already in my very easy going country, they are attacking mosques and family homes of muslims. When on the wednesday after I walked into my friendly neighbourhood supermarket - run by a Moroccon family - I suddenly noticed they were getting very nervous just because I forgot to greet one of them (just hadn't seen him, behind a mound of tins).
The terrorists do not just take human lives; they try to take our humanity.
