Recent weeks have witnessed once again radical Islamist attacks in Europe, ostensibly, aimed to intimidate and stifle free speech in multicultural Europe. This time, the targets were France and Austria. For Vienna, it was a traumatic experience; the city is not used to such violence. Austria has not been a targeted by Islamic terrorist in recent times. The motive of the Islamist killers, like that in France, was apparently outrage over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad. The killers in both countries pledged their loyalty to the Islamic State.
