"We live in a time when language has become an obstacle to understanding what's happening."
Horowitz nails it in this lecture. I urge you to listen to what he has to say. He gives an in-depth overview of the history of radical Islam and the Lunatic Left's part in bringing it to America.
It's an excellent speech by David Horowitz and I'm amazed that it took place at UCLA since that university has long ago proven itself to be a bastion of stupidity that embraces things like radical Islam.
Perhaps Horowitz's speech will help turn the tide on that kind of thinking...
