Well, this explains a great deal. State Department diplomat extraordinaire Karen Hughes has been studying Islam via the notorious Saudi-funded dhimmi “scholar” and Islamic apologist John Esposito and Reza Aslan, the wunderkind who assures us that Muhammad was the ideal Rotarian and the jihad against the West is just a myth.
From “10 Questions For Karen Hughes” in Time magazine:
ARE THERE BOOKS BY SCHOLARS OF ISLAM THAT YOU FIND PARTICULARLY INSIGHTFUL? John Esposito at Georgetown has done a number of books. I’ve read excerpts of a lot of them. [Reza Aslan’s] No God but God, I’ve read it. Here at the State Department, we’ve hosted several events, trying to educate our own employees. We’ve had three scholars and one cleric come and speak about Islamic culture and traditions, and we had a huge turnout.
I shudder to think who the cleric may have been.
