The heroic Patrick Poole sums up what happened in the United States regarding the battle of Islamism against American institutions and the support of many American institutions for radical Islamism.
When the attorney-general of an American state argues that people don’t have freedom of speech to criticize Islam (Maine); the sheriff of one of America’s largest cities angrily defends his having spoken at CAIR fundraisers (Los Angeles); and a pro-al-Qaida cleric opens a session of the U.S. Congress with a prayer; a Hamas supporter gets an insider tour of the FBI; the head of NASA is told by the president that his main priority is to make Muslims feel they are great in science and math; a domestic terrorist group receives $500,000 in U.S. taxpayer funds; and the U.S. ambassador to the UK visits and praises a mosque which has cheered the number-one organizer of anti-American terrorist attacks today, you might be in a bit of trouble, right?
This article is well worth reading and pondering.
