Robert Spencer confirms my contention that the present struggle with terrorism is not only dealing with its attacking far-flung elements of Western Civilization 'round the clock and seeking a "death by a thousand cuts", but also to determine who defines the terms of discourse.

But that is not the same thing as formulating some genuine way to counter jihadist claims to represent true Islam. Inventing our own benign little Islam and hoping that Muslims will buy it won't do that."
