Where did radicalization come from? The word, that is. Who makes the decision to drop these terms suddenly, like bombs, so that they decimate the political landscape and dominate all discussion? It also happened with "homeland." Before 9/11, it had been widely deployed only in Nazi Germany.

Michel Houellebecq's foul novel about an Islamist takeover of France in the near future, Submission, was published the day of the Charlie Hebdo murders. I received the English translation the same day as the Paris attacks. The guy has timing.

Everybody seems to speak French this week, love France and sympathize with the French. "Empathy" is now a French word. Even the British, long-time enemies of the French people, forgot about their jealousy, their rivalry in colonizing the world, their British superiority complex, and they did the undoable: on Monday The Guardian ran a long editorial en français!
