Nigel Farage: “If dealing with Islamic fundamentalism becomes a battle between us and the entire religion, we’ll lose”


Nigel Farage's warning against making the resistance to jihad a "battle between us and the entire religion" is odd. No sane person is saying that the West should go to war with the entire Islamic world. The likeliest interpretation of his statement is that he is saying that we must not speak about how jihadis find justification for their actions in the Qur'an and Sunnah, as that will alienate the "moderates." But if we don't speak about such facts, how will we ever convince Muslims not to follow "hardline interpretations of the Qur'an"?
