Today, more than ever, Voltaire’s words (Je désapprouve ce que vous dites, mais je me battrai jusqu’à la mort pour que vous ayez le droit de le dire) are an example of difference, clearly reflecting the distinction between civility and barbarity.
This type of extremists, or any other, is not interested in dialogue.
They do not appreciate democracy or have respect for freedom and only show contempt for other cultures, especially to those who welcomed them.
Obviously, not all muslims are extremists. But, if we remember Edmund Burke’s words, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”, where are the voices of the good muslims?
However, actually, these are not enough. More is demanded.
We want Muslim communities also defend our freedom of expression.
