The attack on Paris last night is an attack on the freedom that all of us in the western, civilised world currently enjoy, but what is a civilised answer to it and is there a single one?

I would imagine that most of France have a violent solitary solution this morning that amounts to the wholesale slaughter of others.
Although that is a natural reaction it’s not a rational one, however, this is not a rational situation!
In all probability these killers wanted a dramatic reaction, the problem is they might not get the reaction that’s needed.

I believe the answer must come from within these radical groups and the ‘people’ who support them with their silence. If these killers were Muslims, as seems highly likely, then genuine followers of that religion will be as shocked and affronted by this murderous act of barbarism as are the rest of us. But unlike the rest of us, some that hide behind the religious banner of Islam must know who the leaders and financial backers of these terrorists are!

I’m no prophet, but it’s not an unreasonable proposition to foresee a war raging soon on the streets of every major city in the whole world. A war where there will be no winners, only the casualties of freedom.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
