Paris lifestyle a symbolic target

The attackers wanted to destroy the spirit of the city of Paris with their attack, the liberal daily Jutarnji list believes: "Paris is the symbol of a world and a lifestyle feared by all fanatics who want to subject society to their constraints, to dictate the sole truth and to impose a single religion which they alone may interpret and enforce as law. They know that in this world no one will accept their dogmas, and that makes them angry. As angry as when they see women dressing as they please, girls going to school and couples holding hands and kissing. Salman Rushdie already wrote about that ten years ago. That's why these fanatics will continue to attack in an attempt to destroy this world. We must be aware of that and prevent it from happening."
