Reader comment on item: Why Politicians Pretend Islam Has No Role in ISIS

Submitted by Tim Hadley (United States), Mar 9, 2015 at 21:26

Because politicians always take the easy way, it's likely that politicians will not be convinced to take action against Islamic violence even if/when 3 million are killed. What is more likely is that such horrendous casualties will move the people to demand action from their politicians, and that is what will finally change things.
