The New Statesman has an article suggesting that Islam may be undergoing a reformation (credit NRO). If this does happen, I predict that the MSM will credit 9/11, Beslan, education, exposure to international norms, and some other influences but not the War on Terror. Meanwhile, although there may have been various gestures toward change in the past, there was never any impetus behind it until the civilized world decided that radical Islamism would not be allowed to survive. It was the humiliation and evisceration of radical Islamism that made reformation possible.
