Matt Drudge usually takes Saturdays off from posting the news. Ergo I was surprised to find a Reuters report on his site this morning, relating the slaughter of some 57 Egyptian pro-Morsi Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators in Cairo – killed by military and police forces. Hundreds more were injured. According to Reuters reporters, many of the bodies had gunshot wounds dead center in their foreheads. That kind of accuracy requires snipers with telecopic sights on their weapons.
If you read Andrew Bostom’s blog, you already know that the new leaders of Egypt, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, and al-Sisi’s puppet “president-pro-tem”, Adly Mansour, are not proponents of Western freedom. Dr. Bostom writes, in part:
Pundits have lauded Egypt’s “Second Revolution ,” in reality a military coup which ousted  the economically and socially failing regime of the country’s first freely elected President, Muslim Brotherhood ideologue, Muhammad Morsi. One “expert ” has even declared that Morsi’s removal reflects a larger contemporaneous series of “internecine” events which indicate that his chimerical construct of “Islamism” (which is simply traditionalist, normative Islam, as this same learned analyst’s writing used to acknowledge ) is somehow “doomed.”
Monday, July 22, 2013, Egypt’s “interim President,” Adly Mansour—installed by a military putsch—gave a speech  of great significance, although little noticed by Western commentators. Mansour’s words  put the lie to glib formulations that willfully ignore how traditional Islamic authoritarianism, regardless of pseudo-secular veneers, remains, as it has for 13 centuries, the most potent force shaping authoritarian governance in Muslim Egypt, and the greater Muslim Middle East. Mansour, in a televised speech  commemorating the 61st anniversary of the 1952 revolution—also a military coup—praised the leaders of that putsch, Mohamed Naguib, Anwar El-Sadat and Gamal Abdel-Nasser, thusly:
I salute the great men who opened the door of freedom and hope to Egypt and all people in the region…
Really. Read the entire piece.
So, here’s the rub. The pundits to whom Dr. Bostom alludes in his essay include American newspaper reporters, television news anchors and radio broadcasters of all three major news-controlling corporations. Ever wonder how many of them have actually taken the time to do any studying about what’s in the Quran, the Hadithe, or about Islam’s violent, barbaric, supremacist, anti-Jew, anti-Christian, dhimmi-repressive history? My considered answer to that question is, “Very few of them.”
Over the past five months I’ve spoken to numerous conservative grass-roots organizations throughout the State of Colorado about our ever-growing “I” (“Islam”) problem in the United States. I’ve been the featured guest on radio broadcasts. During my talks, I always pose this:
Our best and bravest have been actively fighting and dying in this war of occupation in the Middle East for nearly twelve years. What would the answer be if you walked out to the street corner today and asked the first American man or woman who happens to come along what he or she knows about Islam? Then, what about the vast majority of elected political officials at any level of government?
Most would shrug their shoulders.
Politicians would very much like to change the subject. And, as Diana West has observed, even the great Rush Limbaugh will not go too close to our Islam problem on his radio show. He’ll talk about Huma Abedin’s politically motivated loyalty to her sexting husband, Anthony Weiner – but he’ll not talk about her proven links to the Muslim Brotherhood and jihad, or the doctrines which underpin the jihad movement.
All of which makes me appreciate Dr. Bostom and Ms. West for their unflagging courage as they continue to cut through the Big Lie and expose the truth about Islam, every day.
