Are there two versions of Islam? Is there radical Islamism which is bad and regular old Islam which is good?
For today’s brief but critical lesson, this is what is absolutely important for readers to digest and understand: the space between (1) the truth about what Islam is and what it teaches and (2) whatever else the talking heads call it – Islamism, violent extremism – is the space in which the enemy defeats us.
Remembering this is an information war more than anything else, the enemy wants to keep Americans and our leaders focused on the “other version of Islam.” You know, the “radical” version. That way we never look at Islam and sharia – the very thing all of the jihadis say is the basis for why they do what they do.
If you don’t identify the enemy, you cannot target the enemy. If you cannot target the enemy you cannot destroy the enemy and you lose the war.
And that, friends, is where we find ourselves today.
This UTT VIDEO is a quick (1+ minute) look at this from a simple perspective.
