Reader comment on item: "You can't fight Islamism with ideas coming out of Europe"

The record shows that Islamists succeed more with non-violent means than violent ones. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan in Turkey and Islamist organizations in the West have greater success than Khomeini or Al-Qaeda. They achieve more by working through the political system, the schools, the media, and the law courts than do their counterparts by blowing things up. How can killing people get you to the top when you are as weak as the Islamists are? In contrast, it is not hard to see how working the system gets you to the top. I watch with fascination and horror as that process takes place in the West, and most rapidly in the United Kingdom. Turkey and the United Kingdom are particularly significant countries to watch.

so,what you say is, turks try to stay away from terrorizm,condemn terrorizm, fight against terrorizm in afghanistan, but this is even more dangerous because at the end, islam is an evil cult ,muslims are islamists who plan to invade west .what ever method they follow doesn't matter.

if you think this way mr pipes, then whatever we do doesnt matter for you,either we blow ourselves up or open peaceful schools, we muslims totally are the bad ,guys in every case. and what do you propose sir?

I don't think this way.

I propose that Muslims modernize Islam.
