One of the points I made yesterday was that the terrorist groups get “creative” with there interpretation of Islamic teaching in order to justify what they do. If they don’t come up with an acceptable answer to questions like the one you pose, they can’t recruit. So, before you know it, they’ve rationalized how every citizen of an entire nation can be an enemy combatant.

It’s a huge problem, complicated by the fact that Islam has no hierarchical structure of accountability per se.
