You’ve got to be kidding me. If this is common thought in the Obama administration, we are worse off than I thought:
WEEKLY STANDARD – In the wake of the Arab Spring, the Obama administration is grappling with how to handle Islamists, radical adherents to Islam. Particularly, the issue has come to the fore in regards to Egypt, which, as Reuel Marc Gerecht notes, “is now certain” to elect “an Islamist” as its leaders the next time the Egyptian people go to the polls.
But some in the Obama administration are now seeing things differently.
“The war on terror is over,” a senior official in the State Department official tells the National Journal. “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”
This new outlook has, in the words of the National Journal, come from a belief among administration officials that “It is no longer the case, in other words, that every Islamist is seen as a potential accessory to terrorists.”
Legitimate Islamism? They all hate Israel and want to march to Jerusalem and kill all the Jews. There is nothing moderate about the Muslim Brotherhood or the Islamism that is taking hold of the Middle East.
Is it November yet???????
