A system of beliefs that cannot rely on persuasion to win over doubters is a weak and defective one. Religious Extremism and the Road to Civilization
Islam doesn’t automatically equal terrorism anymore than Italian automatically equals mafia. Al Qaeda is an organized crime syndicate that hides behind religion as their modus operandi. They are really a nationalist hate group that recruits the young to die in the name of “jihad”. Regular muslims need to work together with law enforcement in the countries where they are living peaceably and police the jihadists in their midst.
