In the battle against Islam as a political idea, it is absolutely essential to bring over to our Western intellectual side those people of Muslim heritage who are open and accessible to Western logic and to those Western concepts that can appeal to something in them that has transmuted itself away from the logic of Islam and the culture of an Islamic lifestyle.
It is stunning that taxpayer monies were being heading over to Islamic groups to fight terror. First, what accountability is there? How do they prove results? Secondly, if these groups are now refusing the money, refusing to fight terror, how good an investment could it have been?. Mosques, Islamic Centers, Muslim leaders and groups should not have to be paid to fight jihad terror. They should be fighting the good fight because it is the right thing to do. I do. My colleagues do.
