James,

There is no such debate possible, if we start with respect individual freedoms as a given.

That attack on 🇫🇷 was an attack on principles of freedom of, to and from religion. So not differentiating between murderous sects and the vast majority of believers would fundamentally erode out own hard-won principles of freedom of thought that we hold sacred for our civilization.
