Who speaks for Islam?

Back from my summer break my first column of the season for the Ottawa Citizen asks whether Western politicians aren’t whistling past the graveyard when they so blithely assert that Islam is a “religion of peace”. It is partly that, and partly a religion that gives inspiration and comfort to radical Islamist Jihadists. In reality we are living through a global civil war for the soul of Islam. We have not yet seen the end of the consequences for us all.
