Zuhdi Jasserís Counter-Jihad
National Review ^ | October 6, 2011 | R. James Woolsey & Seth Leibsohn

Posted on 10/20/2011 5:39:08 PM PDT by nuconvert

The administration refuses to utilize a strong opponent of radical Islam.

Shortly after 9/11, many thought it was imperative to teach about and promote the heroes of that deadly day. One such hero whose life and example we can never learn enough about was Rick Rescorla. Originally from England, he came to America and distinguished himself as an Army infantry officer in Vietnam. Later he became head of security at Morgan Stanley, and, after the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, he knew the terrorists would go after the Twin Towers again. He warned the authorities continually; moreover, he led regular evacuation drills between 1993 and 2001. On 9/11, he successfully led almost every Morgan Stanley employee out to safety. He himself did not make it. His last known words were, “As soon as I make sure everyone else is out.” He said those words to another Morgan Stanley employee who had yelled to him that he had to get out too. Rick Rescorla’s remains were never found.

Rick’s life was not wasted; he saved a lot of people. But if the government had listened to him before 9/11, he would have saved even more. Rick was somebody who should have been posted at the top of our intelligence community, but he wasn’t. Today, we are still not listening to the most creative and prophetic thinkers among us. One of them is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, founder of the American Islamic Forum on Democracy. He is the intellectual Rick Rescorla of our day.

I think James Woolsey & Seth Leibsohn omit an important reason for Dr. Jasser being “removed from consideration,”... the influence on the White House & Adminstration of the exact people he warns against. THEY don’t want Dr Jasser around.

There aren’t a lot of muslims I would turn my back on but Jasser has the stones to say its to be expected and he doesn’t blame anyone but muslims for it.

Although the article is not primarily about Rick Rescorla, he was an amazing man: Badass of the Week - Rick Rescorla
New Yorker Article about Rick Rescorla
Warning: heavy use of swearing at first link - it's that site's schtick. (Pretty cool site, though.)

“Although the article is not primarily about Rick Rescorla, he was an amazing man”

Jasser got on FoxNews and declared there is nothing in the Koran about Jews being apes and pigs, and that there is no teaching about how on Judgement Day the rocks and trees will start talking and say, “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him”.

That’s not in the Koran, it’s in the Bukhari Hadith, check it out.

Jasser is nothing more than one of those sweet talking suit wearing clean shaven “spokesmen” for Islam sent to soothe us “infidels” as to the real purpose of the Caliphate and worldwide Shariah.

“O Muslim! My bullets are dipped in pig grease.”

What explanation could there be?

When Glenn Beck was on CNN, Jasser appeared on his show many times ... that alone probably makes him radioactive with the WH.
