Wahabi Islam is the modern euphemism

Dear Dr Pipes,

the onus of differentiating bad muslims from good ones must fall on Muslims themselves. Why should any one else trouble to differentiate? Your reader Sohel Bahjat seemed to imply that Wahabi Muslims are bad and all others are good. If that is true, how do we recognize Wahabi Muslims from non-Wahabi ones and we need to recognize them before they shoot not after they shoot.

I think when you do not want to speak the truth that there is over-reliance on violence among the Muslims, you speak the euphemism that Saudi brand of Wahabi Islam is violent.
