How to mourn the victims of terror?

Heartiste discusses a video of a Frenchman whose wife was killed by the latest terrorist attacks in Paris. Here is my comment:

Love, fear, and hatred are almost the same subconscious emotional states, but the projection, the interpretation by our consciousness is what differs. Therefore people can easily switch from love to hate and vice versa. It is not the emotional state but its interpretation what changes.

It is dangerous to just hate terrorism as such a hate can easily be turned into love, remember Orwell’s 1984, the very last chapter.

No, what is needed instead is staying cool and rational and when fighting back find the most vulnerable points. Not to give in into furious and blind hatred is Christianities real superiority.
