Why Don't They Meet With Apostates?
There is plenty to be said about Barack Obama, as about Hillary Clinton and John McCain, and their various misunderstandings of Islam, and consequently of the way to minimize the threat from those who take the duty of Jihad seriously, and who pursue it, with or without the instrument of violence.
And one may take issue with what one suspects are Obama's still carefully-unstated views on the subject, and his possible misunderstandings (that, like those of Paul Wolfowitz, may come from assuming one's personal experience in Indonesia is a substitute for learning about the texts and tenets of Islam, or about Islam as believed in not by the relatively "moderate" Muslims one might, as ambassador or schoolboy, have met in Indonesia), or the misunderstandings of his advisers (the names of such advisers mentioned so far do not inspire confidence on this score, but the advisors of the other candidates similarly inspire little confidence), and other matters, including the fact that many Muslims may believe that despite his assurances that he is a Christian he remains a "secret Muslim" (what is important here is not what Barack Obama declares, but what many Muslims may think, and consequently may act on the basis of this misunderstanding), and that in Western Europe, leaders meeting with someone whose precise relation to Islam they simply cannot quite gauge, may make them more rather than less hesitant to openly discuss the need for a united Infidel front against the menace of Islam.
These are all matters that need to be discussed. We should discuss the problem of having as the American president someone who, because of his name and background, his attendance at a Muslim school (however briefly), may lead others -- to think of him as, despite his churchgoing, to be a Muslim.
He can, of course, do all kinds of things to reassure us, and make clear to Muslims, that he is not one of them. He might, for example, have met -- and he has had a year or two in which to have done it, as the other candidates might also have done it -- to meet with Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
She is most impressive. She was living in Washington, practically down the street. Why have Barack Obama, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, not met with her? What's keeping them?
