Part of our problem with understanding Islam is the monopoly of egghead policy wonks
and University clowns. All of the above are fed a diet of Marx, Marcuse, Fannon and Chomsky and their maleducation often leads to a Mickey Mouse version of what Islam is and its history.
The current mantra of blaming all the regions violence of Israel is laughable given the
nature of the regions problems. The Marxist types have a myopia when it comes to the history of Islam and its treatment of minorities. This cartoon vision is politically convenient for the promotion of the grand alliance of nihilistic power mad Marxist and their bug eyed crazed Jihadi allies.
The terror attack in Mumbai should come as no surprise to any of us. The crazed cowardly killers view human life as worthless and kill civilians by design.
You will see no apologies for such barbarism from Stephen Schwartz of the Center for Islamic Pluralism. Schwartz is a Sufi and an American Patriot and as such his viewpoints on the gratuitous waste of life would be the same as our own. Sufism in short is largely a mystical spiritual expression of Islam. It has more or less an internal debate about the larger questions of life and as such tends to be tolerant
towards other faiths.
There is no excuse for the terror in Mumbai.
