[A] battle [is] under way for civilisation, one that should unite the great societies and religions of the world—Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism and more—against the vicious death cult that is violent jihadism. It would be a nonsense to speak of such a struggle as a war against evil. A war like that could never be won. Evil is within us and it is, apparently, perennial. But we must not be afraid to name it for what it truly is.
