They Think They Know Better

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Motty Perel (Canada), Jun 18, 2002 at 23:08

I wish Robert S. Mueller III would listen to you, Daniel.
High officials tend to imagine that they know better.
Stalin was warned about Hitler's attack in 1941. He did not believe.
Golda Meir was warned about Egypt's attack in 1973. She did not believe.
I am sure you know more examples.
But warn them you must.
Thank you, Daniel.
