Excellent, must-read interview over at Right Wing News with the inestimable David Horowitz. Horowitz is a national treasure. Here are a couple of pearls from the interview: Horowitz on how conservatives don't pay attention to education: Although, I have to say in the seven years I've done my campaign, the left wing press has covered me extensively. I mean there have been hundreds, even thousands of articles about the campaign, but the Weekly Standard, National Review, zip, zero, nothing. Unless the Conservatives wake up and start addressing these issues, nothing is going to happen. Horowitz on liberalism: The enemies of having two sides to an argument are all called Liberals. So, the biggest misunderstanding about Liberalism is that in our time, liberals are imposters. They're pretending to be Liberal. but they're bigoted and intolerant. Inside many Liberals is a totalitarian screaming to get out. They don't like to have another point of view in the room that they don't squash and the way they try to squash it is by character assassination and name calling. This is not a liberal mode of discourse. The kind of character assassination you see of every major conservative figure. ...That is such an intolerant attitude. I mean nobody worthy of the name liberal should have such an attitude, but they do. Horowitz on Islam: If you see Islam as parallel to Judaism, Christianity and Buddhism, you can't have an intelligent discussion about it. This is a religion whose founding figure was not a carpenter or a man of peace, but a warrior. He was a bloodthirsty warrior who murdered people -- and that's part of the religious cannon. | Continue »
Obama to Ummah: "America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam" Usama: Called for "Long War Against Infidels"

Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. And it only got worse. It was terrible. My heart is heavy for my country and the free world. The media can spin their subjugation and adulation a million different ways, but America did not vote for a "Muslim presidency," which is what this is. Obama deceitfully hid his Muslim background and schooling and his agenda. Little did America know that Obama's objective would be a conversion of this nation to "the largest Muslim country in the world". From the moment he spoke as President, in the inaugural address, Islam was falsely given a preeminent place in the creation of America. In this speech, he quoted from the Koran three times. Why doesn't anybody comment on this? Why doesn't anyone ever comment on what he projected vs. what he is? Why won't all those talking heads state the obvious? The Asia Times said Obama made a mistake by speaking in Cairo. “Why should the president of the United States address the ‘Muslim world?,” it asked. “What would happen if the leader of a big country addressed the ‘Christian world’? Half the world would giggle and the other half would sulk." “To speak to the ‘Muslim world’ is to speak not to a fact, but rather to an aspiration," the paper stated, "and that is the aspiration that Islam shall be a global state religion as its founders intended. To address this aspiration is to breathe life into it. For an American president to validate such an aspiration is madness.” He quoted extensively from the Koran. In his typically anti-semitic fashion, Obama came down very hard on the Jews in his speech today to the Muslim world.(Full text of speech here) MK Aryeh Eldad in Israel said, "Obama makes a shocking parallel between the destruction of European Jewry and the suffering that the Arabs of Israel brought upon themselves when they declared war on Israel." “If Obama does not understand the difference between them, perhaps he will understand it better when he visits the concentration camp in the comings days. And if he doesn’t understand it even there, then Islam will once again teach it to him, just as it taught his predecessor on 9/11.” The moral equivalence did not end there. Obama equated "the two peoples": America will not turn our backs on the legitimate... | Continue »
