A terrorist by any other name

I think it is a mistake for the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton to insist that terrorism is not a part of Islam. The “Islamic Reformation,” that is, the victory of moderate Islam over the Wahhabi/Salafi version that produces violent jihad, will only occur if the moderates (and all of us) can identify the faction to be defeated, and defeat it point by point. As long as the leading voices in the world keep insisting the jihadis are not a part of Islam, is is harder for moderate Muslims to engage and defeat them.
