„If we are to avoid giving false testimony against our neighbour (Exodus: 20:16), it is essential that Christians should allow Muslims to define themselves and therefore recognise that most Muslims would want to distinguish between ‚Muslims‘, ‚Islamists‘ and ‚Muslim/Islamist terrorists‘.

While the parallel is not exact, one could say that a Muslim studying terrorism in Northern Ireland in recent years would have similar needed to distinguish between Christianity, the Roman Catholic Church and the IRA.“
