Judges cut through the hysteria of rulers made tyrants by fear

"We cannot allow two dozen mass murderers to change our politics and way of life. The choice is ours, not theirs. Terrorism is not an ideology or a “threat”. It is simply a weapon, the random killing of civilians. It is a threat to life but not to democracy, let alone western civilisation, unless we choose to make it so." —Simon Jenkins
