"Though I was born into a Muslim family, I became interested in Islam only after 9/11/01, when 19 Muslims murdered 2,996 human beings in the name of Islam. Those who always gave a damn for the truth did their homework and found out for themselves what Islam really meant before they said one word about it. But then there were the politicians and the ideologues. Even before the smoke cleared, Western politicians and intellectuals who knew nothing about Islam couldn't wait to exonerate it by uttering the anti-reality check of our time, 'Islam means peace.' This ensured that a rational response to jihad by those in power would be sold out for ideas such as political correctness, multiculturalism and moral relativism. And though we have come to expect most of our politicians to be unprincipled whores, if enough of us were willing to know what must be known about those who would wipe us out, we could pressure these hacks to actually do their job. Instead, our culture's willful ignorance about Islam and its jihad has allowed our leaders to do just enough to give us the impression that they're defending us. It's as if they've decided that, while the protection of America is optional, the defense of Islam is absolute."
