Submitting to the terrorists’ demands does not reduce terrorism, it only emboldens them. This is the wrong approach to fighting radical Islam. However, stripping terrorists of their citizenships is the right policy.
The Jerusalem Post (Jan 18) — Following the attacks on Charlie Hebdo’s offices, a poll published by IFOP (French Institute of Public Opinion) found that 42% of the French believe that publications should respect Muslim opinion and refrain from publishing cartoons of Muhammad, AFP reported.
The poll also found that 81% support stripping dual nationals who have committed an act of terrorism on French grounds from their French nationality.
