How To Beat This Enemy (Islamism)

Jihad vs jihadism, Islam vs Islamism, and to win against the jihadists of Islamic State, isolate them, undercut their appeal to Muslims, and avoid a 'clash of civilizations.'

How To Beat This Enemy
Maajid Nawaz, WSJ, 12-13 Dec 2015

"We must overcome the Voldemort effect" the refusal to call Islamism by its proper name."


“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)… There are just some kind of men who – who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” - To Kill A Mockingbird (Atticus Finch)

“Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.” - Robert Heinlein

Why must the west continually seek to convince Muslims we are not at war with Islam? I suggest that Muslims should convince us that Islam is not at war with the west.
Ubi libertas habitat ibi nostra patria est

I hold it as a principle that the duration of peace is in direct proportion to the slaughter you inflict on the enemy. –Gen. Mikhail Skobelev
