The American Military, unremarkably clueless
The blog 1389--Counterjihad! has collected together in one place vital information about a major American military academy spending the time (and to an extent the money of taxpayers) to indulge in a presentation, with numerous speakers, of Islamic deception, in the form of a whitewash of the brutal and fanatical imperialism of Islamic history in the conquest and subsequent regime of Islamic Spain (which lasted approximately 800 years, from the 7th century to the 15th century). The military academy in question is the Virginia Military Institute.
Diana West has also brought to the table important information about this on her blog.
The only precise point at which I seem to differ from my various anti-Islam colleagues (including Diana West) on this particular issue is that what the Virginia Military Institute is doing -- swallowing and regurgitating the Myth of Andalus -- is not at all unusual. It simply reflects the mainstream dominance of PC MC throughout the West. If a Western institution -- whether a college, a military academy, a political platform, a mainstream newspaper story or editorial, Hollywood or television -- were to present the truth about Islamic Spain, now that would be remarkable. We must not, therefore, make more, or the wrong thing, out of this particular show of dhimmitude.
