I was struck by the many similarities between these two, disparate, ethnic groups, and making this comparison helped me comprehend what's been going on in France and other parts of continental Europe and Great Britain that have experienced a large influx of immigrants from former colonial states. However, the muggings, car thefts, and occasional murders committed by the juvenile delinquents of the 1950s cannot compare to the sheer butchery that exploded in the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo and that kosher grocery store in Paris. Though in their 30s, Said and Chérif Kouachi, the brothers responsible for the Charlie Hebdo massacre, and Amedi Coulibaly, the grocery store terrorist, marinated in the same churning stew as the immigrant cohort. So what pushed them beyond the pale of decency to commit such heinous acts? The answer lies in the deadly virus of radical Islam.
