On Saturday October 17, 2020, the day after Samuel Paty’s assassination, the teacher noticed the students’ indifference to what had happened the day before. For most, the assassination of this teacher based on the lies of a teenager, was just an “event” and they treated it like a banal news item.
“Until then, I had not been fully aware of the new reality, namely the tolerance of the new generations to barbarism,” the teacher admitted.
“However, in homage to Samuel Paty, and for educational purposes, I then planned a selection, my choice, among the less raw caricatures of Muhammad. To my knowledge, there were no Muslims in my class. A student asked me if I was not afraid. And when I told him no, he said: ‘My father is going to behead you!'”.
Westerners need to read a little history. Muslims have been slaughtering people for blasphemy for centuries. For most, a geographical change from Asia or Africa to Europe doesn't change those deeply held beliefs.
