Calling Out Mid-East Islam

Victor Davis Hanson puts down his drink, unplugs the jukebox, and asks Middle-East Muslims, in front of the whole crowd, when they might ever consider helping themselves.
(Mid-East) Islamists are entirely parasitical on the West: They want our material products, but only to use them for destructive purposes. And if they employ televisions and videos to further the spread of Islam, they never pause for a second of self-critical analysis. It is not just that the world of the 7th century does produce what a Mullah Omar or Dr. Zawhri prefers to use, but that the Islamic Dark Ages ensure that such appurtenances could never be discovered or improved by fundamentalist cultures that adjudicate scientific research by Koranic purity, subjugate half the population, invest in scapegoating rather than in confident self-reliance, and predicate merit on blood ties and religious zeal.
Don't miss the ten-point list that really gets down to brass tax, for example:
#7 - We must at all times talk of anti-Americanism and why we want you out of the Middle East; you must never become anti-Arab or anti-Muslim, much less close your borders to our immigrants and students.
