The Left suffers from what Ayaan Hirsi Ali terms religious relativism. They don't understand Islam, and their points of reference are their own mostly Judeo/Christian backgrounds. Ali: Moderate Islam is pure fiction. Moderate equals you're not observing the Qur'an's repeated specific commands: Kill infidels (Jews 1st, build on Hitlers' agenda; Muslim world blanketed with mandatory reading of Mein Kampf and Protocols of Z.), take their property (Dome of Rock?), convert them by force (Ask: Why are there 1.6 BILLION Muslims vs 13 million Jews today?) treat a woman as 1/2 a man (100M vaginally mutilated), kill gays and adulterers (think millions of honor killings, including of raped women forced to fornicate, then murdered for honor). Read Nomad and Infidel. We'll never have peace w this mindset. Rather than acknowledge this understanding, we keep deluding ourselves into thinking that peace is possible with a fantastic world at peace with moderate Islamists. Well - where are they? the so called moderate muslims? Egypt? Turkey? Ha! This is the time to wake up to this nightmare. They get it. We don't. They win.
