Yes indeed - why?

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: One word -- WHY?

J. S., you wrote:"And the RAND people want to see "more Muslim networks" as I scoff derisively. Sheer idiocy. And if the American administration can fund and support "legal" jihadists, and the RAND people, themselves fooled by Islamists... What, precisely, is the point? Creating more dupes for Islam?

What is needed is obvious -- a beefed up educational effort to oppose the likes of the BBC, the Western liberal media outlets, the EU, the United Nations, etc., etc. And that's just for starters."

I agree with you wholeheartedly. We do not need to waste our time and money to create more Muslim networks which will be used by the so called "moderate" Muslims to advance their Islamist agenda "peacefully" in the West. That is one thing that they can never ever give up. They have already succeeded in doing so and our "experts" and media just don't get it. I wonder how many of those experts in Rand Corp. responsible for this kind of nonsense have been inflenced by Saudi Arabian money as they might have worked there in some capacity, either in US embassy or other NGOs. as I said in another blog below, common folks get it but the "experts" screw it up.
