  1. Thank you for your insights. The more we are informed, the better we can act to maintain our values and freedom.

  2. I very much agree with Anne. The more we know, the better - more understanding, more power to respond well.

    Yet, re
    "What distinguishes a jihadi terrorist from a more peaceful Muslim, therefore, may not be any fundamental difference in belief, but merely in a given instance, how the religious legal principles of his faith should be applied."

    My experience is that different Muslims understand passages very differently - often from a desire that things should mean one thing or another. The more peaceful - or truly peaceful - who do not want to leave Islam often have a very different understanding of their religious texts. (Hard for me to grasp, but I've seen this time and again.)
