The killing of two women and a man at a Catholic Church in France last week — as they prayed — was an event worthy of far more outrage, sympathy and reflection than the world gave it.

The president of France, Emmanuel Macron, called it not the act of a madman but an act of terror in an ideological war. The war being waged is by radical Islam, he said, and it is a war on the West and on liberty.

The irony about defending liberty is that said defense requires not only force, but a certain loss of liberty.
