By now, maybe 50,000 Arabs have killed each other in the "Spring," from Tunisia to Yemen. In Syria the civil war is still raging.
All because of one little guy in a Manhattan loft, using Twitter and Google. And a whole PR machine hidden behind the scenes, including (maybe) David Axelrod.
The giveaway with my Muslim pied piper was the total absence of jihad in his talk about Islam. Jihad is one of the five chief obligations for believing Muslims. Even the obligation of charity, which sounds fine and liberal, includes a tax for jihad. Jihad is not a little thing that can be swept under the rug.
But Islamists keep trying to sweep jihad under that Persian rug. With political liars (like Obama), you can learn everything by listening for what they don't say.
