So, a maniac wielding a machete decided for some unknown reason to attack the Louvre in Paris yesterday. Sadly (for him) he made the unwise choice of charging armed French soldiers. Sadly (for us), he was only wounded when the predictable thing happened and said assailant of unknowable motives wound up with several holes in him
The article includes this paragraph, which contains no clues as to why this man would want to attack one of the focal points of Western culture:
While French officials have not expounded on their determination that the attack was “terrorist in nature,” police have said the suspect shouted “God is great” in Arabic during the incident.
Remember, folks: They’re still trying to kill us.

PS: I haven’t time to write a longer post explicating why this jihadist fruitcake would do something so suicidal, but, if you’re interested, I suggest starting with Surah 9:111 of the Qur’an and working from there.
