Diana West has a very good op-ed in the Washington Times today. She confronts head-on what even the hawkish leaders in the war on terrorism are afraid of: The "Religion of Peace" problem. In the war on terror is the root cause a tiny, tiny sect or a brand of religion which has yet to undergo a reformation and is in many ways incompatible with modernity?

Most people dare not even raise this question. West does.

Consider as well an older essay, "Islamic Counter-Reformation", in First Things (Aug/Sept 2004) by Paul Marshall.
