The Washington Times runs a commentary piece today that reassures me that Jihad Watch and our fellow subversives will be in business for some time. Nothing new here, just a bland recapitulation of the usual establishment bromides about “Islamism”; the need for “modernization”; how the Quran sets out a “just war” theory; etc. Yawn. No mention, of course, of Muhammad’s various bloody deeds.
One interesting point of note is that the author, Mustafa Akyol, of the Turkish Daily News (also at www.thewhitepath.com), manages to mention the interpretive principle of Quranic abrogation – but says that this was the product of Islamic jurists rather than the Quran itself (as actually found in Sura 2:106). His point is, of course, wrong, but it is interesting that he felt the need to mention it. Maybe we’re getting to them?
