What Muslims Actually Believe

Proof Ron Paul is right, John McCain is wrong


Michael Scheuer was the author of one of those Rudy’s Reading List books. He was the Chief of the CIA’s Bin Laden unit. He is one of the so-called experts that Giuliani and others tried to refute. It is more difficult to refute him now that he has a billion Muslims agreeing with him. Scheuer, in “A Book Americans Must Read Before Time Runs Out“, wrote the following:

On no other foreign policy issue since the Cold War’s end has the truth been so easy to establish on the basis of hard facts but so hard for Americans to see – primarily because their leaders eagerly distort or ignore the truth. The reality accurately presented by Esposito, Mogahed, Pape, and Sageman – as well as by Dr. Ron Paul – has never eluded Osama bin Laden, however. Five years before Gallup even started collecting its data, bin Laden knew that U.S. foreign policy effectively united the Muslim world’s moderates and radicals in anti-U.S. hatred, and that when he defied Washington and attacked U.S. interests because of those policies he both drew and grew support for his jihad against America.

John McCain will likely not have to resort to the measures of banning books. The American public and media seem blinded by the “maverick”, “war hero”, and “straight talk” McCain labels. It is almost if most Americans need to hate someone or some group in order to be motivated. For the liberals it is George W. Bush. For the neo-conservatives it is “Islamic extremists”. For me and many other liberty minded individuals we just hate the spin, lies and propaganda.

It is a good thing Ron Paul is still in the Presidential race even if he is largely ignored. Those like us who seek the truth still have a voice thanks to the good doctor. Meanwhile McCain travels the country raising money for his campaign touting the great success in Iraq on the very day the death toll for American troops breaks 4000. The phrase “completely out of touch with reality” seems too tame for McCain.
