Much of the world was horrified by the savagery exhibited in Paris. That horror, at least in the West, was not so much that people had been killed — that happens regularly enough — but a response to the reason for which they were slaughtered: namely for the “crime” of publishing cartoons that displayed a rather unflattering portrayal of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
