International crisis centre puts brakes on thought

I'm a bit late with posting this, but it's just so stupid that I couldn't leave it alone:
Puritanical form of Islam puts brakes on terrorism.

Far from promoting violence, the teaching of fundamentalist Islam in Indonesia may be a barrier to the growth of terrorism.

Just days after the bombing of the Australian Embassy, the International Crisis Centre issued a report arguing that a puritanical form of Islam, known as Salafism, is more likely to act as a brake on terrorist groups and finds organisations like Jemaah Islamiah anathema.

"Salafi" is another word for "Wahhabi". One prominent Salafi/Wahhabist is Osama Bin Laden.

What next, arguing that national socialism puts brakes on invading Poland?
