Leave ‘Martyrdom’ to the Jihadists - NYTimes.com

Here we go again. Sleazy slimy obfuscation and apologia. 
Here's a quote:
The real problem is the pathology of a perverse minority of extremists with distorted notions of holy war and martyrdom.
It's just more of what we read about daily: islamist murderers are a "tiny minority who twist or pervert or hijack the religion of peace."
It's nonsense. 
The doctrinal support of what the Islamist killers are doing is clear and profuse. 
And to say that Fr Hamel should not be martyred because the jihadists also have a notion of martyrdom -- one rather different from the Christian one -- seems to me the grossest form of appeasement.
