It was a sad day in Paris yesterday: predictable, inevitable, barbaric but ultimately just another senseless loss of life that has fuelled the anti-Islamic sentiments that are growing all over Europe.  I cannot predict how it will end but I can foresee a major shift in European acceptance of and tolerance to the Islamic religion and those who practice it, extremists and moderates alike.  Unfortunately, more blood will flow – lots of it – before those whose behaviour, morals and ethics are entrapped in religious dogma rise above the stupidity of their beliefs and see religion for what it is; a controlling mechanism of the unenlightened masses by a manipulative few based on a fear of the unknown.
