LETTER: World should unite as one against Islamic State

I rarely am forced into a corner where my capacity for tolerance is exhausted, but the Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq have put me in that position.

And, it appears that the militants are deadly serious about a universal caliphate. I’m hoping that they will not be stopped by a perceived “crusade” — a word that comes from crux, the Latin word for cross — but by the worldwide opposition of people whose symbols include crosses, crescents, shields and anything else noble.
