"One rotten egg spoils twenty fresh ones". - Old English proverb.
Every time a terrorist attack is carried out by an Islamist in the "name of Islam" it makes Islam in general look bad, because both Islamist extremists and moderate Muslims use the same religious phrases, look to the same prophet's teachings for inspiration and invoke the same deity in prayer.
To the untrained western eye these links condemn both extremism and moderate Islam.
Therefore, can Islamist extremism ever be defeated, because of these intimate links?
Interesting discussion if anyone wants it.
