In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Western countries and political leaders are standing together. We are girding our loins, stiffening our resolve and sharpening our pencils in order to express our defiance through the medium of crayon daubs on electronic paper. The last time we saw such resolute bravery was when Michelle Obama tweeted “Bring Back Our Girls” in the glare of the world’s media, and then promptly forgot about them. The girls were not brought back of course. They were sold as sex-objects in Muslim slave markets.
