An Islamic View of the Global Struggle
The recent controversy over a proposed mosque near Ground Zero in
lower Manhattan demonstrates how Americans cannot clearly define
the enemy in the war on terror and the role Islam plays. Part of
this stems from viewing Islamic political and religious beliefs via
western politically-correct filters, which don’t accurately portray reality.
We’ll spend today’s show on Islamic history and its modern
impact with two authors. The first is Islamic expert Bernard
Lewis, author of numerous books, including “The Crisis in Islam”
and “What Went Wrong.”
Then we’ll follow up with the life story of one person, who
more than any other, established the current conflict between
Muslims and Jews, Haj Amin al-Husseini. Chuck Morse, is author of
“The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism.”
John’s boralogue frames today’s show by examining definitions of
the enemy in the war on terror. They’re very blurry definitions at best.
