The heinous crimes committed in Paris two weeks ago has caused unprecedented civic debate, at a time when the ghouls of extremist identity politics – the xenophobic extreme right, radical Islamism, or anti-Semitism – have reappeared throughout the European continent.It argues that Muslims are prone to violence and seek to dominate Europe, despite their minority status.The international community could and should do much more to end the humanitarian tragedy in Syria, which has been a powerful factor in the radicalization of young people in Europe and above all, the Middle East.Its human, religious and cultural diversity make the City of Light a modern urban Tower of Babel – which is why the extremists murdered Christians, Jews, Muslims and non-believers alike.Of course, this cultural diversity is seen by some as a threat to the concept that many in France have of the country's identity.The public protests that followed the massacre in Paris, mobilizing millions throughout France, give us hope that Europeans will be able to build a community of citizens who totally reject identity nationalism.
