Tragic day

It is a tragic day in regards to the events that have unfolded in Paris, I was reading “Total Recoil” by Žižek and came across a good point he made. The Terrorists he says have embraced Western values in so far as they see themselves as inferior and that is why they can not only destroy others but also themselves though he doesn’t explicitly state how the inferiority pertains. At the moment it seems obvious. They have no respect for anything even themselves.
