The jihad way

Via the Washington Times:

Dr. Esam Omeish resigned as a member of the Virginia Commission on Immigration after his anti-Israel remarks in support of "the jihad way" were posted on You Tube. He told a news conference that jihad has nothing to do with violence, but instead is about inner struggles leading to spiritual triumph. We've heard this before. Such explanations are presented after a terrorist act or a radical is exposed. Radicals also have been known to lie, especially to "infidels."

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) went into predictable rant mode and denounced critics of Dr. Omeish as "Islamophobes" (can't they come up with something better than this hackneyed, overused word?). After every terrorist act, or comment about killing and destroying infidels and their nations, CAIR and their fellow travelers tell us what we have seen and heard is not really what was intended. Sure. Some of their best friends are infidels.
