@ Rex Caruthers:
As observed on another thread, Clifford May may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he usefully exposes, as you point out, some fundamental problems with the revivified rightwing war on terror ideology. Many of them really do appear to believe that we cannot afford to let a tiny minority of Islamists peacefully advocate their worldview - that's how strong it is! Merely by advocating for Sharia, they can "sabotage" the US of effin A and all of our friends, too! Apparently, that's how pathetically unattractive and indefensible our values are compared to Islam.
Don't do the crime...
