In Onward Muslim Soldiers I included a chapter entitled “Everybody must get stoned: The strange alliance between radical Islam and the post-Sixties Left.” People on the Left and the Right have remonstrated with me since, saying I was too hard on American liberals.
But remember: the struggle against jihad is not a liberal or conservative issue. It’s a human rights issue that all Americans should support. The fact that large segments of the Left do not is an outrage and a scandal, but it is by no means something I am exaggerating. Just yesterday I got a hateful, slanderous, and ignorant email from a representative of a New England leftist group. And then there is this, which indicates that at least some segments of the global jihad network see allies on the American Left. From The Guardian, with thanks to Susan:

Meanwhile, in the United Arab Emirates, the film is being offered the kind of support it doesn’t need. According to Screen International, the UAE-based distributor Front Row Entertainment has been contacted by organisations related to the Hezbollah in Lebanon with offers of help.
