West given rosy view of Islamism
by Salim Mansur
Ten years after 9/11, it could be said there is far less clarity of understanding about Islamism and Islamist terrorism than there was in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on America.
Indeed, it is ironical — though the man responsible for 9/11 has been disposed of deservingly, the U.S. and rest of the West readily continue their downward slide of appeasing Islamists and their political agenda.
In New York, the biggest cheerleader of the Ground Zero mosque project is none other than its mayor, Michael Bloomberg. We have seen President Obama bowing in the direction of the Saudi king and former president George W. Bush take the same king gently by the hand as an honoured guest.
