Julia Gorin has the story at, of all places, HuffPo:
Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA) — Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee — said the following:
Just a reminder to the predominantly Muslim-led government[s] in this world that here is yet another example that the United States leads the way for the creation of a predominantly Muslim country in the very heart of Europe. This should be noted by both responsible leaders of Islamic governments, such as Indonesia, and also for jihadists of all color and hue. The United States’ principles are universal, and in this instance, the United States stands foursquare for the creation of an overwhelmingly Muslim country in the very heart of Europe.
Why should jihadists note this? Because it will make them think that the U.S. is not an enemy of Muslims, presumably. But neither Lantos nor other American officials busy patting themselves on the back about this have given even a moment’s consideration to the possibility that those same jihadists might take advantage of American goodwill in this to…wage jihad against the West.
Now why would they be so ungrateful? Because they are not fighting against us because we are bad guys. We could be the best of peoples, as Muslims are called in the Qur’an (3:110), and because we are not Muslim, many Muslims will believe that it remains their responsibility to fight against and subjugate us (cf. Qur’an 9:29), no matter how pliant and helpful we are to their cause.
