5:00 – Why aren’t liberals more critical of Islam?
We are now—like it or not—immersed in a real debate about the nature of Islam. Is the propensity to terror and jihad radical in the deepest sense of word’s origin in Latin, radix, “root”? Is there something at the root of the Quran itself and the essential history of Islam that all too frequently creates the Tsarnaev brothers, Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, Mohamed Atta, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas, or is there some other source, quiet accidental to Islam? Dr. Ben Wiker helps to answer that question as well as another: Why do liberals have so much difficulty even allowing that very serious question to be raised? The answer to this second question is important for the obvious reason that, if liberals won’t allow the first question to be asked, then it surely can’t be answered.
