We often talk about counter-narratives but that is not enough: counter-narratives do have an important role to play, when seeking to re-engage those already susceptible. But 'Don't be an extremist' is too passive. We need a positive call to action - a clear articulation of a shared identity and sense of belonging. The response to Wednesday's cowardly attack gave a taste of what that could be - proud, inclusive and resilient.

When hope is located in the heavens, the earth is left to perish.
