Martin Sherman: Islam and Terror, Attempts at Apologetics
"We, in the West, would do well to heed the clarion call from someone who has intimate firsthand knowledge of Islam -- the Somalian-born former Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who was forced to flee to the U.S. because of threats to her life over her criticism of Islam. She warned: "Islam is not a religion of peace. It's a political theory of conquest that seeks domination by any means it can. Every accommodation of Muslim demands leads to a sense of euphoria and a conviction that Allah is on their side. They see every act of appeasement as an invitation to make fresh demands."
