[...] Since there are in liberal and leftist circles those who justify terrorism or gloat over the plight of its victims, I have noticed that some pro-liberal writers and thinkers play the Right's game in denying any responsibility for it. I still remember that after the terrorist act of 7/7/2005 in London Nick Cohen, whom I had long considered a centrist writer, wrote in the distinguished Observer newspaper three days later, 'Face the truth.
