It was stated in the article the following:

"...Bennett unintentionally revealed the appallingly primitive state of understanding of Islam"....

Although Bennett "understanding" holds a primitive status, actually apparently disengaged from what Islam is, I refuse to believe in its UN-intentional revealing.

I do not believe either in dumbness or misinformation.

I do believe in irresponsibility, lack of personal character, and in a human being that lost his soul due to corruption, power, money and perhaps lack of self esteem and trust in himself, which basically leads him to the stage of apathy, as perhaps runs in the script of his thoughts "…Ones cannot do anything, so since we cannot fight the enemy, let's be their allies and as a plus profit and provide a good life to my family and descendants"…

On the other hand, I believe that a real unintentional and appalling stage is revealed in his belief: Basically in his mind, once he condones the enemy's action, in the future he will be absent from being beheaded, tortured or having his banking account confiscated (taken over by Islamists).

To me, it is clear that those who condone the Saudi totalitarian threats against the West for money, in the future, not only will lose what the US is, but also will have their banking account withdrawn. They will have neither freedom of speech, nor of move, going back to the low medieval era, if not worse, and even though they convert to the cult of Islam, nor even then there will be guarantee for their lives or lives they still have today..

This is Bennett's Un-intentional revealing of the appalling primitive state of understanding of Islam he holds- much worse than the first for what it dares to affect other human beings' destinies.
