Sam Harris and the Reality of Islam

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Sam Harris is, quite naturally, at the forefront of criticizing Islamists for their barbarity. His piece at TruthDig on “The Reality of Islam.” Here’s the money quote, from his conclusion:

Our press should report on the terrifying state of discourse in the Arab press, exposing the degree to which it is a tissue of lies, conspiracy theories and exhortations to recapture the glories of the seventh century. All civilized nations must unite in condemnation of a theology that now threatens to destabilize much of the Earth. Muslim moderates, wherever they are, must be given every tool necessary to win a war of ideas with their coreligionists. Otherwise, we will have to win some very terrible wars in the future. It is time we realized that the endgame for civilization is not political correctness. It is not respect for the abject religious certainties of the mob. It is reason. [emphasis added]
