Talking sense on the threat within

There is a remarkably sensible (considering) article in today's Guardian by Maleiha Malik on the Islamic terrorism problem. What I really like about it is not the analogy it draws (between Islam today and anti-semiticism a hundred years ago) but rather the way it focuses on outcomes rather than ideology. She points out that the issue is how best to deal with this threat to civil society, and that the process of doing this is hindered, not helped, by the dialogues of 'multiculturism' and 'the war on terror', and so on. Being clear about how you will measure outcomes really does help here.
