We cannot allow the recent brutal slaughter of a French priest to trigger religious animosity between communities.

I have just returned from Nice. I lived very close to Promenade des Anglais, the place which witnessed the mass murder of innocents. One can feel palpable tension in the city.

However, we must all remember that 30 of the victims were Muslims themselves and that, so far, terror organisations have murdered more Muslims than Christians, Westerners or any other minorities.
