No Cure for Terrorism

The Dilbert Blog has a post positing a cure for fundamentalism, which he seems to believe would also provide a cure for religious terrorism, because by removing religious experiences, you would create small shadows of doubt. I believe he misunderstands his target. It is not the Dervishes who are blowing themselves up. It is the Wahhabis who are doing so. The Wahhabis are studious, not emotional. Perhaps by curing fundamentalism, you would end up with more Wahhabis and fewer Dervishes, creating more terrorism all around.
