Quotable: Gary Kamiya on what to do about terrorism

“The only effective way to reduce the threat of terrorism is to work to end the conditions that give rise to it. In the case of Islamist terrorism, this means a comprehensive and enlightened political, economic and diplomatic strategy for dealing with the Arab/Muslim world. Only a tiny minority of the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims support radical jihadis, but catastrophic errors like invading Iraq make violent fundamentalism more attractive. Follow the physician’s credo: First, do no harm.”

–Gary Kamiya, “Iraq: The Ten Commandments”, at Salon.com
