WAR: BETTER THAN NOTHING

CAIR gives a brief writeup of a book, "The Place of Tolerance In Islam, that leads off with an essay describing bin Laden and his sympathizers as "theologically illiterate Muslims," and then provides a variety of reactions from other commentators. The roster listed (including former Holy Cross professor John Esposito, who continues to contend that Islamic terrorism is not a threat) suggests that this is hardly a polemic against Islamofascism, but at least if CAIR is getting its members thinking long and hard about the place of violence against non-Muslims in their faith, some progress is being made.
