Dinesh D’Souza has found someone who agrees with him: Pervez Musharraf. There is no recognition from Musharraf here of the manifest fact that what are commonly known as terrorism and extremism spring from the jihad imperative, not from conditions within the Ummah that can be repaired by those outside, or from conditions outside the Ummah that enrage the Ummah. Maybe Pervez has been reading D’Souza’s Enemy At Home.
Regular Jihad Watch readers will recognize this abdication of responsibility as pandemic among mujahedin and self-proclaimed moderate Islamic spokesmen. If a Muslim leader ever said anything to the effect of “Muslims themselves provoke ‘Islamophobia’: some by performing acts of violence in the name of Islam and others by blaming those acts of violence on non-Muslims instead of cleaning their own house,” I would faint dead away.
From the Khaleej Times, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
ISLAMABAD “” President Gen. Pervez Musharraf yesterday left for Riyadh as part of a 5-day trip to the Middle East which would also take him to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Talking to newsmen at Chaklala Airbase before his departure, Musharraf said the world should resolve the problems faced by the Ummah urgently, to get rid of terrorism and extremism.
President Musharraf said an urgent solution of problems is must due to gravity of situation in Iraq, Iran, Palestine and Lebanon.
