    I wish I could say I'm surprised by the lack of class on display on a thread about a horrible murder.

    Two ISIS 'soldiers.' Surprisingly, the AP story did not pull any punches.

    Haras Rafiq, managing director of the Quilliam Foundation, described the attack as a turning point. “What these two people today have done is ... shifted the tactical attack to the attack on Rome ... an attack on Christianity,” he said.

    As Europe becomes painfully inured to a summer of repeated bloodshed, the extremists are looking for greater ways to shock, Rafiq said. “This is going into a house of God. This is attacking and killing a priest.”

    “We’ve been talking about the danger of the global jihadist insurgency. This is what it looks like,” he said.

    Seriously, how do these people do what they do?
