Indonesia and India Offer the Solution to ISIS
Madhav Nalapat

...It is the Muslims of Indonesia and India, two countries which hopefully will work much closer together in the coming decades than they have in the past, who offer a societal pathway out of terror and turmoil, especially to the Middle East, and within which is still vibrant a theology that rejects the hate and the cruelty typified by ISIS and its ideological clones, groups that have done much damage to the image of a great faith.

The Sunni Alliance… Jihadist, Islamist Terrorism Might Constitute a New and Hard-To-Be-Surpassed World Record in Absurdity
Yusuf Kanli

Will the anti-terrorism struggle of this 34-nation alliance be limited to aerial operations? What if a need for boots on the ground arises? Will Turkey send troops for out-of-Turkey operations as a “requirement” of its new alliance? What if a confrontation with the “government elements” of Iran, Iraq or Syria eventually takes place while fighting terrorists somewhere in Syrian or Iraqi territories? Will the Turkish military engage in combat? In short, what will be Turkey’s contributions to the new alliance?

To be sure, IS in its present reiteration, was not created by Saudi Arabia; it was forged in the wake of the US toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003 by among others the disbandment of Saddam Hussein's army, whose senior officers were mostly Sunnis who already had Islamist networks; the insurgency and civil war between Iraqi Shias and Sunnis that continues to this day; and the morphing of Al-Qaeda in Iraq into ISIS, which was in turn energised by civil strife in Syria and evolved into IS.

Call Islamic Terrorism by Its Name
Rudolph W. Giuliani

...We must encourage Muslim leaders to show the world that Islamic terrorists represent an antiquated and inhumane interpretation of Islam. These leaders need to loudly and dramatically speak for the hundreds of millions of Muslims who worship a peaceful, merciful and loving God. All Americans, in particular those in the media, can do their part by encouraging those Muslim leaders who come forward with a positive message about modern Islam.

The Politics of Terrorism
Abu Afsarul Haider

Terrorists represent only a minuscule faction of any group. The so-called IS terrorists and their affiliated groups take satisfaction in sacrificing their own lives in their belief that they are doing a glorious job (as if the heaven has been kept reserved for killers). The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of these young fighters, who happen to have Muslim names or ascribe themselves to the Muslim faith, have never read the Qur'an in its proper context. ...

 

Bombing Hasn't Worked. Bombing Won't Work. And yet, We Bomb
Gary Younge

...The West can’t bomb everywhere. And wherever it does bomb, it kills and injures large numbers of civilians. These civilian casualties, in their turn, stoke resentment and outrage, not least in the Muslim communities from which jihadis draw their recruits. Since 9/11, the West’s military interventions have created far more terrorists than they have killed, and have generally made things worse, not better.

 
So, Just How Islamic Is ISIS?
Gabriel Said Reynolds

So, Just How Islamic Is ISIS?
Gabriel Said Reynolds

To many outside observers, however — not least of whom are Muslim observers — ISIS does not represent Islam. To make this point, more and more commentators have begun to refer to the movement by its Arabic acronym — Daesh — or as the “so-called” Islamic state. On social media it is not uncommon to find activists speak of the “UnIslamic State” and its “pseudo-caliph.”

 

Why Can’t We Talk About Islam Honestly?
David Harsanyi

...Islam is not the same as Catholicism or Judaism—or Lutheranism or Calvinism or Buddhism or atheism, for that matter. Blowing past this troublesome little fact might be helpful when smearing Republicans, but this moral equivalence doesn’t change reality. Whether Americans were anti-Semites or wary of immigration or just suspicious of Nazi infiltrators in the late 1930s, the two groups you’re talking about embrace wholly different sets of values.

'Muslim Extremists' Is a Legitimizing Term for Terrorists
Franklyn Odhiambo

Islam is not a monolith and the fact that ISIS exploits superficial religious teachings of Islam does not make their motivation Islamic in any way. There is little policy substance to be found in propagating this narrative on their behalf; it does more harm to the innocent civilians caught in the middle. The intention to excuse imperialist policy that created, aided, and abetted terrorism in the Middle East and Africa cannot morph into a selective labeling without affecting innocent adherents of Islam.

You Won’t Win a War Against Isis If You Don’t Know What The Peace Looks Like
Giles Fraser

We wouldn’t bomb the suburbs of Brussels to eliminate the Isis cells stationed there. So why bomb Syrian towns when there are so many innocent people living there too? A few years ago, Cameron tried to persuade us to go to war against Bashar al-Assad because he was dropping barrel bombs on his own people. Now it is us who are proposing to do something similar, perhaps to the very same cities. ...

'Sting in the Tail': Islam and the Politicisation of Religion
Milad Milani

The issue is not about the religion of Islam, but the politics of "Islam." The recent Paris attacks and the subsequent French air strikes reaffirm what must be an obvious truth: both religion and democracy "can inspire and justify not only the best but also the worst of human behaviour."
