You may have heard that Grover Norquist made some thoughtful comments about the political folly of the Republican jihad against the Burlington Coat community center. You may have wondered why a great patriot like Norquist would be so objectively pro-terrorist. Well, wonder no more:
Grover Norquist’s ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known for years. He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes — who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005 — are very active in “Muslim outreach.” Just six weeks after 9/11, The New Republic ran an exposé explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 — to show how Muslims rejected terrorism.
Pam Geller has some even more chilling news about American elites:
If not for useful tools like Norquist, Islamic supremacists could never gain such a foothold, an absolute intellectual dominance at the senior levels of our most critical government agencies; nor would elections be won by stealth jihadists as they infiltrate our government.
Although I think Norquist is right and Geller is wrong on this issue, I’d like to engage in a little Broderism, if you’ll kindly indulge me: on most issues, Geller and Norquist are both wrong.
