My Name is Bosch and I am a Recovered Muslim
Our problem is not "Islamophobia", but Islamophilia. It is this uncritical, uninformed, absolute defense of Islam by Western elites after 9/11 that I refer to as Islamgate. It's a scandal for the ages that few involved would ever admit to being part of. Our altruistic concern for the future and well being of the Muslim world has come at the expense of American lives and treasure. We've placed the well being of "The Muslim World" above our own self-defence. We've placed today's Big Lie, "Islam means peace", above the truth we need to act on. We've placed the lives of Muslim civilians above the lives of our soldiers, placing them in absolutely unnecessary danger in order to protect innocent (or even guilty) civilians.
