Daniel,

Today I saw your UC-TV interview. Agreeing with most of your points of view, having begun my studies on this subject in
1958, as a US Army person in Lebanon, I wonder why Wahhabism was not spoken of in a clear manner?

Is it only a minor component of the problem? I know Wahhabism is older than the 1920's and 1930's period in which you assert the
totalitarian connection to Islam was made. Can you provide a reference or two?

Thanks alot for standing up to appeasement and apologetic, as was seen in Europe before WW II.
