A Pal-Arab woman walks towards a coffee shop hanging a picture of al-Qaeda’s slain chief Osaman bin Laden on its window with the Arabic slogan below it: ‘Osama bin Laden, the worrior [sic], the martyr’ in the West Bank city of Jenin on July 1, 2011.
We’re constantly told by Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in government, in media, in law enforcement, everywhere, that Osama bin Laden represented no one but himself and his Tiny Minority of Extremistsâ„¢, and that he represented a newly-minted and eccentric form of Islam that the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims abhorred and rejected. And yet the evidence of our eyes for years now has told us that he was widely popular in the Islamic world, respected, and even revered. (More below the fold or click here)
Gaddafi huffs and puffs
TRIPOLI, Libya â€” A defiant Moammar Gadhafi has threatened to carry out attacks in Europe against “homes, offices, families,” unless NATO halts its campaign of airstrikes against his regime in Libya.
“We can decide to treat you in a similar way,” he said of the Europeans. “If we decide to, we are able to move to Europe like locusts, like bees. We advise you to retreat before you are dealt a disaster.”
(ANSAmed) Today Tunisia’s commission of political reform announced that it Â categorically rejects ”any form of normalisation with the Zionist State”, and supports the Palestinian cause. (Brother Tariq would say: “reform is done…”)

There is no explanation for this cognitive dissonance other than the one I have offered here for seven and a half years now, and in ten books, and in thousands of articles: that the conventional wisdom is wrong, and that Islam is not a Religion of Peace, and that therefore the claims of Islamic authenticity from Osama and other jihadists found a receptive audience among Muslims, and therefore our policies regarding Islamic states, terrorism, Muslim immigration, stealth jihad Islamization initiatives in this country and in Europe, and myriad other matters are drastically wrongheaded.

Following is the full text of President Bush’s address to a joint session of Congress and the nation.
September 20, 2001
“The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics; a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam…..
“I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the world. We respect your faith. It’s practiced freely by many millions of Americans and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah….
“The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself.”
What can you say when a leader of the free world disagress with Spencer’s analysis? After all, doesn’t a U.S. president have the best minds in the world advising him? “Who – some or many will ask – “is Robert Spencer to challenge the collective wisdom of experts advising an American president?”
