Bernard-Henri Lévy, “We should relegate terrorists to the obscurity of their own infamy” – Open to debate


We should relegate terrorists to the obscurity of their own infamy . Guardian, Wednesday 3 August, 2016

I cannot put this piece by Bernard-Henri  up on my website without comment.
I do not agree wholly with the writer and I need to say so. To place it here
is not to endorse it but to ask that the points he raises be subject to
discussion. Media, public figures and the public at large have withheld
debate on its nature, its effect on us and of our response to it.

The comments that Bernard-Henri should not be swallowed whole but
subject to debate. The first observation to make is that self censorship may
lead to self denial. Every newspaper and every form of media, including this
website, is responsible to its readers. Offering partial information when more
is known is a form of deceit.

Much more needs to be said.
