Jihad Watch reader Andrew2 attended a political debate in Munich yesterday and sent in this report:
Over a hundred and fifty people filled the auditorium of the Amerika Haus in Munich tonight to hear representatives of the Democratic and Republican parties abroad debate the issues. John McQueen of Democrats Abroad and Henry Nickel of the Republicans abroad were moderated by Patricia Guys, who read questions submitted by the audience.
The US Consul to Bavaria, General Matthew Rooney, opened the debate with a short speech. He said that the US was an ally who helped Germany become an independent player on the world stage. He mentioned terrorism and said “Islamism or Jihadism as terrorism should be analyzed and defined”.
General Rooney, you’re right. “Islamism” and “jihadism” should be defined. Pull up a chair and read awhile at Jihad Watch, and you may get a clearer idea of what they are.
