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 isn't really about Islam, and never really has been.

    Really?

    Its over thirty years too late to still be touting that theory.

    That theory was wrong during the Iran Iraq war, back in 1980.
    That theory was wrong during Desert Shield in 1990.
    It was wrong in 2001,
    Its still wrong today.

    When a theory has been wrong for 34 consecutive years, its time to get a new theory.

    But the Islam those terrorists invoke is no true Islam! [wikipedia.org]
