One day, people like Andrew McCarthy will be listened to by the know-it-alls but that day will come much later than it should.
Egypt’s Predictable Unraveling
Includes this Hillary / Huma excerpt:
Western democracy has Judeo-Christian underpinnings. At its core is the equal dignity of every person. This sacred commitment, ironically, enables our bedrock secular guarantee: freedom of conscience. It is anathema to the Brotherhood. As their guiding jurist, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, teaches: “Secularism can never enjoy general acceptance in an Islamic society.” This is because “the acceptance of secularism means abandonment of sharia.”
Now, maybe you doubt this. Maybe you think “Islamic democracy” enthusiasts like Hillary Clinton, edified by her trusty aide Huma Abedin, know more about sharia than Sheikh Qaradawi does. But let’s just say I doubt it — and I am quite certain that the ummah would laugh, and then probably riot, at such a suggestion.
The Brothers really do believe what they say. They especially believe what Qaradawi says.

Here’s a quote from Winston Churchill’s memoirs…
One day President Roosevelt told me that he was asking publicly for suggestions about what the war should be called. I said at once, “The Unnecessary War.” There never was a war more easy to stop than that which has just wrecked what was left of the world from the previous struggle. – Winston Churchill
When one looks at the absurd levels of appeasement relative to how western civilization is choosing to handle the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, it should be apparent that history is in the process of repeating itself.
