Much Needed Self-Reflection

A refreshingly direct indictment by a Muslim on the rise of terrorism as a political tactic in parts of the Islamic world (via usemycomputer.com):

These images are grim, shameful and despicable for us when we gather them and lay them out together in one day [here in this article], however instead of ignoring and justifying them we must first recognize the validity [of this sad truth] and not compose articles and speeches declaring our innocence. It makes it easier for us to treat ourselves if we recognize the sickness.

Parts of it are still a bit wishy-washy, such as naming anonymous "political [radical] groups" as the culprit instead of directly pointing at Wahhabism. But it's still a start, and a lot better than this.
