tstephan, you say:"And yes, persisting in blaming a perverted version of islam gives the "real" islam a free pass to keep advancing. ... By confusing the debate and offering a scapegoat for islam you make it impossible to fight islam, and yet this is the one and only solution."

Agree with your analysis. i have come to rhe same conclusion that you cannot separate Islam from Islamism for Islamism is nothing but practice of islam. Without it Muslims won't be Muslims!!! All Muslims are islamists. Perid!!!

However, I do not agree with your last part of the para: " yet this is the one and only solution", because this gives all Muslims a free pass regarding the jihadi activities of their fellow Islamists. So this can't be the only solution. Unless you hold responsible all Muslims there won't be any real change in Islam and Islamists aka Muslims.

Submitting....
