A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

For the Record

Short, but important…from Jihad Watch.

I [Robert Spencer] was just on the Laura Ingraham Show with Dr. Esam Omeish, President of the Muslim American Society. Toward the end of the show, after I had quoted (with citations) a few Qur’an verses, Ingraham asked Omeish, “Is Spencer misquoting the Qur’an?” Omeish said no, I wasn’t.

Now, this is extraordinary, especially coming on the heels of CAIR’s false and defamatory charges against me. Will Ibrahim Hooper call Omeish in for a friendly heart-to-heart? Better yet, will American Muslim advocacy groups actually begin to formulate new ways for Muslims to understand the passages I quoted and others, so as to stymie jihadist use of these passages to gain recruits and justify their actions among peaceful Muslims?

Any reader should note that he is not advocating the abolition of Islam, or demonizing all Muslims.  He may believe (as I do) that they’re misguided, but they’re not evil.  Others may disagree with me, but the problem with Islam today isn’t the average ordinary pious Muslims, it’s the jihadists and Sharia supremacists.  They may be few (arguable), but they’re the most vocal and visible – if anyone is actually giving Islam a bad name, it’s them.
