Although this seems to be good for the rest of the world, this is in context of Iraq, where the suicide attacks are aimed at Shiites, just as much as they are aimed at the "occupiers".
In fact, the rest of us may have to be worried just a bit, as this statement suggests...
- To be sure, the alternatives these critics recommend are no less violent. Rather, many of the movement's dissidents suggest that jihadis diminish their efforts in Iraq and revert to spectacular attacks in the West, like those that took place on Sept. 11.
- Western governments should encourage the debate among jihadis because, if the promise of absolute salvation through suicide attacks is thrown into question by some within the jihadi movement, potential recruits may come to doubt the wisdom of engaging in such tactics.
