Communications Intern Jenn Schanz reflects on the tragedy in Norway and the tendency of terrorists to hide behind religious ideology to further political agendas.
Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Council for American-Islamic Relations, said he doesn’t agree with the principles of Hizb ut-Tahrir, but believes the group is entitled to freedom of speech and assembly like any other group in the U.S.
“They are a minority group among Muslims and their ideology is considered sensational by mainstream communities,” Rehab said. “Despite their best efforts, they are neither persuasive nor effective.”
Manzullo shouldn’t blame the reader for misinterpreting his comment. Instead, he should blame himself for using such a bombastic generalization about an extremely sensitive issue.
