Yes, that's another way of saying what I also try to get across to people, that they work in tandem, and very well said, as well.

It's like when trying to hammer a nut, one might hold it in a soft glove so as not to hurt one's hand. The terrorists are the hammer, while your "lawful Islamists" are the soft glove embracing the victim. The violence presses the object to be broken deeper into the clutches of those who want to restrain it in order to make breaking it easier. They don't embrace us out of love, but to take the best advantage of the violence of, as SYED ZAFFAR KAZIMI calls them, their terrorist "brothers and sisters."

It is their PsyOps they have been developing for over 1300 years, and we are falling for it hook, line and sinker.
