Peaceful Muslims are Irrelevant to Peace

Peaceful Muslims are irrelevant? Well, in one way, of course they are. Terrorism is exactly the type of thing that only takes a handful of guys to carry out. How many guys did it take to bomb the Boston Marathon? Two brothers and maybe a few guys looking the other way. Rest of the Muslims; irrelevant. How many guys did it take to bomb Oklahoma City? three (and one's wife). Rest of America; irrelevant.

But the Muslim woman's question is exactly the type of question we should be asking. Who is most often the victim of terror attacks carried out by Muslims? Other Muslims. If we want to end Islamic terror it can't just be a race to see if we can kill them faster then they can be radicalized. We--with a heavy reliance on peaceful locals--need to work to retard the inflow of new radicals. How? I don't have the answers and I don't think the Heritage Foundation, particularly a panel on Benghazi, is the place to look for them.
