Does the country know enough about radical islam

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 10 months ago

Hugh Hewitt: Governor, you wrote in your memoir of the Olympics, the time that you were running the Olympics, that this...like all Americans, you were shocked by 9/11, and saddened, and then of course, the enormity of dealing with the Olympics arriving under the threat of terror arrived...has the country sufficiently advanced, even as you have, on the learning curve about radical Islam in the five years since?


Governor Mitt Romney: No. I think one of the sad things is that we have not developed an understanding of the nature of what's going on in the world of Islam, and how it threatens people there, and how it threatens people in their own country. And you know, I recently heard Tony Blair speak on the battle that's going on, the world of Islam. It was really quite effective. I wish it were better heard and understood in our country. We are facing not just a group of al Qaeda lunatics in the hills of Pakistan, but a worldwide effort to cause the collapse of civilization as we know it, and Western societies. And that is a very real threat, and is going to require vigilence on our part, not just military, but Hugh, using Eisenhower's term, we will have to wage full-out peace to help encourage people to, in the Muslim world, to turn to modernity.
