OUTSTANDING MATERIAL, STARTING WITH: Jihad Watch: Akyol Still Standing for Islam - and Against Terrorism

Jihad Watch: Akyol Still Standing for Islam - and Against Terrorism, by Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, 8 October 2004.

Condensing this battle of ideas into a blog requires more time than I have right now. In fact, I think I will put it on our website, 6th Column Against Jihad, in the near future. Meanwhile, start with this article link; then follow the links from this Jihad Watch article all the way back through Robert Spencer's related articles, the initial article by Andrew Bostom in Front Page Magazine, and Bostom's followup on Jihad Watch. The responses to this point:counter-point discussion on Jihad Watch have been just about the most voluminous I have seen to any issue. These responses are rich with good information as well. The bottom line is Islam-As-It-Is versus Islam-As-I-Want-It-To-Be. This latter position wants to lie Islam into what it is not--a religion of peace. You cannot go wrong reading every word of the articles and the responses, but, in truth, it will take a while. Curl up and read.
