How will the West stop psychotic Islamists from beheading Christians and subjecting our daughters to Sharia law? For starters, we can all get into our local town squares and sing "fahoo fores" like the "Whos down in Whoville" until the massive outpouring of love enlarges their hearts three sizes.
That sounds utterly stupid, right? Not to author Jodi Picoult, who took a page from children's author Dr. Seuss in her advice on how to stop the Islamic caliphate. Her tweet received such intense mockery, she immediately took it down. What would we do without screenshots?
Sadly, Picoult's tweet represents only one of many examples of the insanity coming from leftists following the terror attack. Here is what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had to say:
This morning we activated Safety Check in Pakistan after a bomb targeted children and their families in a park in Lahore. Over the last two months, we have activated Safety Check several times for acts of terror -- including in Turkey and Belgium -- so people in the area can let their friends and loved ones know they're safe.
Each of these attacks was different, but all had a common thread: they were carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other.
I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That's the world we can and must build together.
All right now, everyone start singing.
