Atrocity won't weaken resolve to defeat terror
Isil has once more left its grim calling card. Ten more innocent people were cut down as the terrorists again brought darkness and death to the heart of Europe. It is the goal of the group to strike at the unprotected and the weak. It seeks to elicit a response which will serve to recruit more people to its twisted cause by provoking a backlash.
In the wake of the Bataclan massacre and other attacks in Paris, Antoine Leiris, who lost his wife Helene in the theatre, responded by saying: "I will not give you the gift of hating you."
President Francois Hollande also said that France would not be bowed. The City of Light would not be blinded by hate.
