The Pen is mightier than the sword.
Islamic terrorism will only, utlimately, be defeated by responding to the propaganda that terrorists use to promote their cause and gain recruits.
Islamic terrorists and devout Muslims will not listen to anything in this debate unless it comes from their most respected texts, the Quran, Hadith
and early biographies about Mohammed.
The Muslim community needs to be challenged to write books that argue the case FOR terrorism from those sources and then argue how the terrorists have
misused those texts which seem to support terrorism and violence against infidels.
That's the challenge. If they can't meet the challenge that would indicate that while there are moderate Muslims Islam itself is not moderate. That
would of course depend on how the respond to the challenge.
The challenged must be issued.
