John Kerry: Token of Radical Islamists ?
This Washington Times editorial shows that either JFK is totally clueless when it comes to figuring out which groups that he speaks to have a penchant for supporting terrorism and mass murder or that he himself sees nothing wrong with lending legitimacy to an explicitly anti-American terror-front group-- The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Interestingly enough, there seems to be a trend in the ranks of the modern left to attempt to apologize for such groups as MPAC and CAIR; quite possibly it's a rite of passage these days for radical leftists to find the most outlandish and self-delusory excuse for why we should not shun groups that promote Wahhabism and lend moral-and in MPAC's case financial- support to terrorism.

What I saw from these killers, I will never forget all my life, oh uncle; and I will never forgive them, never, ever forgive them. Never, oh uncle, Never”.
We did not ask for this war, but it came. In our time and according to our station, it is now our duty to end it. And that resolution will not come from recrimination in time of war, nor promises to let fundamentalists and their autocratic sponsors alone, but only through the military defeat and subsequent humiliation of their cause. So let us cease the hysterics, make the needed sacrifices, and allow our military the resources, money, and support with which it most surely will destroy the guilty and give hope at last to the innocent.
