Silence golden for the terrorists?

The whole of the European Union will hold two minutes' silence at noon tomorrow in response to last week’s terrorist atrocities in London, EU ministers announced tonight.

In a joint declaration after an emergency meeting of interior ministers in Brussels, ministers said they stood “in solidarity” as they did after the Madrid bombings in March last year.

The two minutes’ silence will be staged at exactly noon London time.


I know they mean well but doesn't this kind of thing encourage the terrorists? It appears the people of London have decided to be brave and get on with things so shouldn't the rest of Europe? The two minutes' silence, coming a week after the attacks, shows the terrorists that the attacks are still on people's minds.

Is this really a good idea?
