I wonder after all that: Has Graeme Wood ever read the Bible?

I read the Wood article, and I didn’t get that he was saying Islam is inherently violent or ISIS is inevitable. In fact, he devoted a considerable portion of his article to the Salafis who also interpret the Quran in a literal way but focus on self-improvement instead of violence and who oppose ISIS. And I assume he is also familiar with Christian Reconstructionists, who want to create a Christian version of ISIS complete with stonings and slavery, but he didn’t have any reason to mention them because his article was explaining what drives ISIS.
