Syndicated columnist George Will said Thursday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that in the wake of the Paris attack and other recent incidents of violence, the tide may be turning as far as the international community’s response to – and intolerance for – acts of terror.

“We could be reaching now a kind of tipping point,” he said. “Starting with the attack on the Jewish museum in Brussels in May, killing 124 children in Pakistan. Against that, we're now seeing a reaction.”

Will cited Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s appearance at a Coptic Christian Christmas mass as an act of real bravery.

“When SiSi of Egypt, head of the most important nation in the world for the Islamic world… gives an extraordinary speech saying this is a disgrace what's being done and there must be a reformation in Islam, it is just possible we've reached a critical mass of horror and things are going to change,” Will said.
