It’s settled: The Paris terror attacks had almost nothing to do with Islam.
Consider that on the one hand, you have the chilling new tape of the Charlie Hebdo attackers declaring, “We have avenged the Prophet Mohammed,” and on the other, you have the tortured assurances of White House spokesman Josh Earnest. Which are you going to believe?
