Appeasement will not work

Over at the Counterterrorism Blog, there is a post dealing with a member of Al Qaida's leadership who was recently killed. As an interesting side note, Evan posted a transcript of an interview with this individual from 2000. There is one section that specifically caught my eye:

"Q. Some Muslims are hoping for a peaceful solution to this conflict, and to give heed to Western proposals and conditions for a cease-fire. How do you see the solution to this conflict?"
"A. Islamic issues can only be solved by Islamic means, namely through abiding by Sharia (Divine Law) and not Western proposals or United Nations conditions. Any resolution through non-Islamic means places the future of Muslims in the hands of tyrants who will never accept the rise of an Islamic state."

This is why we must take the fight to them and defeat them in Iraq. They fully admit they will accept nothing other than a neo-caliphate. Let us never forget this.
