Let me start with an apology to the majority of moderate Irish Muslims for an angry article I wrote in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo murders last January.

First, quoting the brave Somalian woman writer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, I said Muslim moderates are hampered by the fact that the Koran sanctions violent jihadi radicalism.
