The very sensible George Weigel on dialogue with Islam

Again, this is why it’s so important to distinguish between Islam and Radical Islam (aka Islamicism or Islamofascism). It’s also why the people who get their undies in a bunch over the Pope’s honoring the Koran don’t seem to get what the Pope or the council are up to. War with Radical Islam is necessary (and Weigel supports it). But dialogue with those in the Islamic world who will listen to reason is just as necessary.
