"As Americans solemnly commemorated the 11th anniversary of the cataclysmic acts of jihad terrorism on September 11, 2001, jihadists in Egypt and Libya were besieging our embassies in these Muslim countries, eventually murdering US Libyan ambassador Christopher Stevens, and three other US embassy officials. By Friday September 14, 2012, violent masses of Muslims were rioting in Israel, Gaza, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Sudan, Tunisia, Morocco, Iraq, Iran, Kashmir, and beyond, using a very questionable American film which purportedly insulted Islam's prophet Muhammad, as an alleged pretext.
McCarthy's remarkably compendious analyses make plain that these dangerous phenomena illustrate, graphically, the corrosive impact of the delusive misconceptions about Islam promoted by US policymakers.
This profound bipartisan US failure of imagination—and resultant failed policies—abetted the Orwellian-named "Arab Spring" uprisings for "democracy," in reality a mass, popular Muslim movement rooted in Islam's timeless jihad imperative to impose its totalitarian quintessence, the Sharia, or "Islamic law."
