Some folks say that our chief objective now is to convince moderate Muslims to reclaim their religion from the extremists. I disagree: I think that the reaction to the Jordan bombings proves that they absolutely repudiate terror. Instead, the burden now is on us to destroy terror where it’s achieved a critical mass (and doesn’t need “mainstream” support to survive), and sell our own society so that the moderate Muslims have a viable alternative to Islamic extremism.
