Somehow I prefer the Mafia version of peace. Under the protection of the Mafia you coughed up a percentage of your earnings and you could live in peace. But at least you didn't have to believe a whole bunch of stuff about the Godfather, alter your life style and raise your backsides to the Godfather five times a day. But that is not the way the Obama administration sees it. Obama's envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference and advisor on Islamic "affairs" (I didn't know bombings and beheadings were affairs) Rashad Hussain is maintaining that Islam itself is the "antidote" to Islamic extremism.
"I am of the opinion that one of the strongest tools that you can use to counter radicalization and violent extremism is Islam itself, because Islam rejects violent extremism," Hussain said during a speech in Kabul.
Islam is the religion of peace as long as we all accept Allah and Sharia. If we all become Muslims there will be peace. How hard is that? As Hussain further explains, "When it comes to the problem of violent extremism, Islam is not the problem." Which means that it is all of us who fail to accept Islam and are too dense to see that living under Sharia law is vastly preferable to living under the Constitution.
I can't wait to see how Obama will pitch this. No doubt all the Obama hope-a-dopes will be tingling in awe as we learn we are the problem. We all just need to be more respectful and deferential to Islam.
