The radical jihadist Muslim who rapes, enslaves, kills, dismembers, decapitates, crucifies, starves and buries alive women and children, cuts children in half, puts heads on poles, puts bombs in shoes and vests and hangs Christians on cranes is giving the majority of peace-loving Muslims a very bad name indeed.

I suggest the majority of Muslims — those who say they are peace-loving — take back their reputation by taking to the streets and protesting such horrors for the world to see. They should do this not in the safe streets of Washington, where speech is protected, but in the streets of Iraq and Syria and all the other places where the only other recourse will be the start of the next world war if such insanity is not reined in. This reign of terror must be stopped.
