Albeit you'll read to the point of exhaustion that what the terrorist want is confusion and chaos — which well appears to be ISIS modus operandi — some argue that rather than responding to the attacks with hostility, France should review the treatment of its minorities, which is making them prone to becoming extremists. Meanwhile as retaliation, Anonymous attacked a bunch of Twitter accounts.

Today, France has one of the largest Muslim minorities in Europe. French Muslims are also predominantly a social underclass, a legacy of France’s colonial past and indifference to its aftermath. For example, although just 7 to 8 percent of France’s population is Muslim, as much as 70 percent of the prison population is Muslim, a situation that has left a very large number of young French Muslims vulnerable to absorbing radical ideas in prison and out. Within this social landscape, ISIS finds success. France has contributed more foreign fighters to ISIS than any other Western country.
