Fears af­ter Paris

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

As if French Jews did not have enough rea­son to fear for their safety af­ter Jan­uary’s mur­ders, it is dif­fi­cult for the rest of us to imag­ine the pain and sad­ness they must now be feel­ing. Our thoughts are with them. For our­selves, it is un­der­stand­able that there is much ner­vous­ness and ap­pre­hen­sion that it may be a mat­ter of when, rather than if, there is a ter­ror­ist at­tack. But we can­not — we must not — live in fear, con­stantly look­ing over our shoul­ders. It may be a cliché to ar­gue that this would let the ter­ror­ists win, but — like most clichés — it is also true.
