Maajid Nawaz wrapping himself around the Tree of Reform in the Garden of Eden.

Kudos to Bostom and West. Now where the hell is the rest of the Counter-Jihad? Why don't Robert Spencer, Pam Geller, Daniel Greenfield, Jamie Glazov, David Horowitz, Debbie Schlussel, Gates of Vienna, Brigitte Gabriel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Frank Gaffney, et al. -- why don't any of these people say something about a snake who is fooling countless people, lulling them into the complacency of Islamic reform?
Why can't any of those distinguished members of the Counter-Jihad leadership call a spade a spade as clearly and boldly as does Andrew Bostom, when with searing aptness he describes the performance of Maajid Nawaz on Fox News on December 3 (on The Kelly File ) as "disingenuous drivel"? Or as Diana West does when she refers to Nawaz's "double talk and deception"?
And why hasn't Sam Harris gotten the memo? Why won't Harris even merely ask Maajid Nawaz elementary questions that would vet him as a supposed reformist partner of the Counter-Jihad?
Bostom notes a recent discussion about Nawaz by Diana West on the Sam Sorbo radio show, then Bostom follows up with important information that Sam Harris could, and should, educate himself about before riding off into the Sunset of the Future of Tolerance with his new partner.
