It makes perfect sense that while some of the Muslim refugees are indeed Islamists, the fact that many are fleeing Islamist chaos means that some are also strongly anti-Islamist. These encouraging events should lead German and other Western officials to try to take advantage of events to vet for anti-Islamist feeling among prospective immigrants.

There is fertile material to work with in the psychological war against Islamism, as long as clever techniques are used.
