On Celebrating Bin Laden's Death

“To victory one must not add provocation. To desecrate the cadaver or the memory of Bin Laden is to revive him. To cry one’s joy in the streets of our cities is to ape the turbaned barbarians who danced the night of Sept. 11. It is to tell them the ghastly competition continues between them and us.”

-- Christophe Barbier editor of L'Express

from the New York Times
