Fundamentalism cannot laugh at itself. Terrorism can’t roll its eyes and say, “Yep.

They all live in a part of the world where they can be “gotten at” by organizations like ISIS, but they’re willing to take that chance. And they realize what so many others don’t, that the pen is mightier than the sword.
