Muslim Challenge to ISIS in Indonesia

A campaign against the Islamic State comes at a time when Islam is at war with itself over central theological questions.
While I am glad to see one faction of Islam trying to reclaim its religion from the genocidal bigots of ISIL, it does make clear how ridiculous Hillary Clinton's position and that of Obama is that this group's attacks "have nothing to do with Islam."  In fact it is based on a reading of the Islamic text and early history of Islam where the same things were done to those who rejected Islam.  Perhaps this is why they have both been so ineffective at fighting it.
