TORONTO -- If Muslims feel involved in the French destiny and France has nothing to fear from Islam, the result of this shared human horizon of empathy could be the acknowledgement of the "otherness" of each other, and the acceptance of the fact that the price of a plural and democratic France is neither a strategy of fear nor a politics of hatred. It is the affirmation of the empathic nature of French civilization and the criticism of the monist stance of a group like the Islamic State.

The terrorists have set this trap hoping Western countries will take the bait. They want to destroy 'our' societies by luring us to turn free societies into police states, to sow hatred among peoples, and invite people hitherto living inside the same nation-state to distrust each other.

"Who one is and what one will do will be determined by the story one sees oneself as a part of." In other words, free will is dictated and limited by how one perceives one's self, and fate is only a consequence of a narrative that may be completely imaginary.

It was a typical Monday morning at the Guantanamo military commissions. Within the first 15 minutes, the judge had to adjourn the pre-trial hearing in the case of the five defendants accused of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, this time because one of the defendants had asked a question. And no one knew the answer.
