I’m not especially comfortable with an Islamic news organization’s web site featured here on FR. . . the people who own and publish are likely ISlamic as well

Dude! It was a great article, wasn't it? It obviously speaks a truth, and one I didn't know you could utter in Pakistan and survive. Would you have opposed linking to a Pravda article by a Soviet population statistician in the 1930s who was subtly drawing attention to the Ukrainian famine? (Their scientists did things like this, and our intelligence analysts often caught the hints.)

I was interested to see that the author of the bin Laden piece has a Christian name. (St. Cyril and his brother Mehodius were the apostles to the Slavs.) Now, you might point out that his surname, Almeida, is Arabic in origin, but more important is that it's not Pakistani, and has long been a common name among Catholics in Spain. Despite the burkha curtain, there is obviously some kind of "diversity" in parts of jihad country.

That one piece opened my eyes in many ways. He's living right in the middle of an Islamist culture, giving us insight into the world our enemies occupy—and also their vulnerabilities—in a way all the armchair Beltway commentators cannot do. Great post, I'd say.

Yes, I probably would be as concerned if it was a Pravada article in the 30. But then this isn’t the 30’s...nobody attacked NYcity....there wasn’t a huge infiltration of people bent on killing Americans via suicide and bombs....they weren’t opening Mosques to deliver their agenda to kill Americans...and our laws were not protecting them......The variables can go on and on...not to mention the dingbats we have at the helm of this ship.

So Yes, indeed I do have a problem with Islamic sites featured here on FR. We already know they are liars and see no wrong in doing just that. So caution at the very least.

This author wrote nothing which we have not already read or heard. And anything perceived as ‘Catholic” doesn’t impress me one bit....wolfs wear sheeps clothing and so do Moslems.

Further I am not one who adheres to the “Diversity” push. Especially concerning Moslems. I would not take a Moslems word for anything...no matter the author or how “nice” it may sound.
