They were demonstrating to the world and their fellow jihadists that they were good faithful Muslims. The agreed definition of a good faithful Muslim is one who puts the Koran into practice and imitates the life of Mohammed. The Western media referred to them as ‘radicalised’ terrorists, avoiding the word Muslim altogether.

They were trying to avoid any discussion in the public place as whether Butt, Redouane and Zaghbahired were in any way representative of Islam. Because there has been a blanket ban on the media identifying terrorists as Muslims, these conversations seldom take place. Few people have the criteria at hand by which to make a judgement.

One of the most significant flaws in the way that public opinion assesses Muslim ‘terror’ is that it adopts Judaeo-Christian ethics as an overview. The public are used to the idea that activists who turn to violence are bad or mad people who bring shame on their sponsoring movement.
