Time Editor Puts Hate on Tea Party
Is the Tea Party the equivalent of radical Islam? That's how the left seems to view things, including Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel, teasing stories on yesterday's Morning Joe.
We have a great piece by Bobby Ghosh, who's been on here before about the rise of the Salafis, in the Middle East, they're the Tea Party of Muslim democracy, and that's a fantastic, insightful story as well...
Here's the definition of Salafism from Wikipedia.
Salafism has become associated with literalist, strict and puritanical approaches to Islam and, in the West, with the Salafi Jihadis who espouse violent jihad against civilians as a legitimate expression of Islam.
Salafism is considered synonymous with Wahhabism, the conservative strain of Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia.
