Rumsfeld equates radical Islam with radical Christianity and Judaism
Rumsfeld was interviewed on al Jazeera and said,
Responding to a question on his previous reported comments about the ‘imperfectly’ named War on Terror, Mr. Rumsfeld described radical Islam as a danger equal to the way that “extremism in Christianity or extremism in Judaism is a danger.”
He went on to question the effectiveness of the war, admitting that “we are not competing in that competition of ideas very successfully.”
This is very disturbing. Rumsfeld knows better than this and that what he is saying is hogwash. But because he was speaking on al jazeera he felt the need to pander, lie and make a moral equivalency where none exists. No such global terror war is being waged by Christians and Jews. No Jewish or Christian groups exist who kill in the name of their religions. Western leaders refuse to speak honestly about islam in public even on western media outlets, let alone al jazeera. They make themselves look like fools by walking on eggshells regarding this issue and coming up with absurd stretches of logic so as to avoid stating the truth about the inherent hatred and violence in islam. Why are American officials even appearing on al jazeera, thereby giving the terror outlet legitimacy? Then again is al jazeera any different from CNN and MSNBC?
