Sunday saw two sharply differing views of the jihadist enemy we are facing. One was offered by a man who is supposed to know about such things; the other by a woman who surely does.
On Fox News, CIA Director John Brennan declared that jihadism “is a corruption of the Islamic faith. … It does not represent the Muslim community or Islam.”
Over at ABC, former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali talked about her new book, “Heretic,” in which she writes: “It is foolish to insist, as our leaders habitually do, that the violent acts of radical Islamists can be divorced from the religious ideals that inspire them. Instead we must acknowledge that they are driven by a political ideology, an ideology embedded in Islam itself.”
John Brennan is dead wrong. Ayaan Hirsi Ali for CIA director!
