Striving for the right kind of divide
Keith Ellison, the Muslim congressman from Minnesota, advised a CAIR-hosted "Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium" in the Chicago area last week that "teachings in the Koran could help the racial divide in America."
Could they, now? And what, pray, might said teachings be? Perhaps those such as 3:28, 4:144, 5:51, 48:29, 60:1, 60:4, et al., which exhort the faithful to insularity and hostility toward the kuffar, thus replacing the racial divide with a religious one. Hardly an improvement, it would seem -- unless the latter is a desideratum, which of course it is, if jihad is the objective.
