Again. Like a macabre ritual, the attacks came back into our daily lives. The images broadcast ad nauseam no longer mithridatize us. After Charlie's insolence, the recklessness of the Terraces, it is now the strollers, the children, the families that are crushed, on one of the most beautiful avenues of the planet. The song Nizza la bella won't sound like it used to.
Aweapons drowning fear and astonishment in the same emotion. And afterwards, always the same procession of gatherings, minutes of silence, flower arrangements and nightlights. And, like a ritual of new times, this mobilization of social networks, these testimonies of mutual aid and compassion, on a global scale.
We are no longer capable of such simply human reactions. In the face of what is nothing but inhumanity.
Daech's terrorism is an epidemic whose miasmas have chosen their target: intelligence. The last immune bulwark that humans possess to defend themselves.
The promises of paradise and sin counters reset for the Jihad "fighters" reach the lost. The weakest are affected first. Skillfully mined from within, any mind fragile enough to be contaminated then becomes either a weapon of mass destruction or the vehicle for a cluster bomb of democratic societies. Daech has no qualms about the quality of his "soldiers". And that is why they so easily escape the "radars" of surveillance, however ubiquitous it may be.
The questions why? how? what to do? are all being asked in a void of thought. A black hole that devours reason. And when reason fails, it's anger that rumbles. The royal road of imbecility. We could have stopped the mad truck with a rocket launcher, we could have foreseen this senseless act, we have to... Politicians knit their pitiful nullity on this disaster. A carnival of cardboard matamores.
Some of the speeches heard in the last few hours - shabby political chicanery, denunciations, accusations, blame denials, martial populist harangues - are the precursors symptoms of the evil that is unfolding and penetrating minds. By giving in to it, our social organism weakens, disintegrates. It splits, and forges the springs of intestinal collisions.
Daech has written and published everywhere since 2005: "We must ensure that society, which is totally disoriented, prepares itself for a civil war logic. ». That is the terrorist trap.
Let's unite our intelligences to refuse to fall into it.
We have an appointment with a tragic story that changes the course of time. Let us live up to that rendezvous.
