Where did D'Souza go wrong?

Reader comment on item: Dinesh D'Souza Walks on the Dark Side

Submitted by Dr. M. D'Souza (United States), Mar 17, 2007 at 12:24

Oh, no ! What did our kinsman D'Souza do now? I've read his articles in Townhall.com, but not his latest book yet.

What he says is correct with regard to the enemy at home – the cultural left. Just see whom the ‘cultural left' sends to the Congress to represent them, and see how they vote in Washington -- it's always in an attempt to weaken the country while they can takeover perpetual power – all the time not realizing that the Islamists are taking advantage of our own weaknesses and liberalism. See how the Democrats are opposed to the Bush administration's attempts to prosecute the war on Islamic terror. They are against much of the Patriot Act, the NSA domestic surveillance program, the trial of enemy combatants in military tribunals, tough interrogation techniques, Gitmo, Bush's harsh language against terrorists, on and on. The liberal leftist media too cheer these decisions by the Democrats. Aren't these the tactics of the enemies at home?

The Islamists are taking advantage of our free press; and we are allowing Islamists' propaganda into our air-waves with our freedom of speech, while they demand us to speak ‘politically correct' language when it concerns them. All this time D'Souza was climbing the pinnacle expressing his concervative views.

But somehow, now he has fallen off the cliff and has dropped out of favor because he's sympathizing with the Palestinians, Chechens, etal. We all love the Israelis. What they are facing now was the same we faced for centuries by hordes of Islamists invading, massacring and occupying our lands. How can we forget our own history and overlook the same actions by radical Islam in modern times, especially in Israel? Perhaps, D'Souza needs to know more about Israel. If whatever he writes in his latest book about Israel is his opinion, then even the US State Dept.officials couldn't have expressed it worse than he has.
