The religious and cultural tensions the West faces are "payback" for slavery and colonialism, a Chinese state-run newspaper said Tuesday in the wake of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper — which often takes a nationalistic tone — dismissed the weekend's huge marches in Paris and elsewhere as "painkillers" that cannot halt the intensifying "clash of civilizations".

    It is not like the Arab, or Chinese did not have, slaves, or colonialism.

    We in the "West" are more conscience of our past in relation to *current* ethic norms.

    Christianity has had a head start of half a millennium, we have had our iconoclasm and inquisitions. They are just starting. It is vere fortunate it is, for now at least, a very small minority.
