This is soft Jihad

Reader comment on item: UCLA's Embarrassment: Prof. Abou El Fadl

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Jan 11, 2015 at 00:05

El Fadl is a soldier of Islam. Just like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Just like the Kouachi brothers. The difference is that El Fadl is, in his own way, even more dangerous. As lawfare is one form of soft Jihad, so to academic taqiyya is another. Like a deadly cancer placed quietly inside one's vital organs, El Fadl's stealth agenda is to weaken our system and turn our impressionable youth against their own country. The greivous insult is not that this guy exists. Nor that he's pressing his agenda. The worst part is that we are sitting back, stupidly, watching it happen without raising a finger to defend our most precious resource -- the next generation of decision makers who will lead us away from or toward greater peril.

The time for politically correct blindness is gone. The time for polite discourse is also far past its sell-by date. We'll not survive if we insist upon following the Marques of Queensbury rules. This is a street fight. If we want to prevail the gloves are going to need to come off.
