The distinction frequently drawn between Islam, which is said to be moderate and peaceable, and Islamism, which is understood as a perversion of the cardinal tenets of the faith, seems both academic and unhelpful. Dutch politician Geert Wilders has claimed that no distinction exists â€œbetween good Islam and bad Islam. There is Islam and thatâ€™s it.â€ Might he be right?
Yes. Read the whole thing. (via YKH – thanks!)
