Outflanked in Quantico

Over at FrontPage Magazine is an outrageous story about how a Wahhabi-trained cleric got a mosque built -- and not for target practice -- at Quantico, of all places.

We are at war with militant Islam, but you wouldn't know it from the Pentagon, which is busy erecting a shrine to Islam just five short years after Islamic terrorists destroyed a good chunk of its own building and killed more than 100 of its occupants.

Worse, it's consulting on the project with a Wahhabi-educated cleric posing as a moderate.

Last week, military brass -- along with representatives from the terror-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations -- dedicated the first Muslim prayer center for the Marines as a symbol of the military's "religious tolerance" and "respect" for the faith the enemy uses to attack us

. Already, plans are in the works to build by 2009 a bigger mosque at the Marine base in Quantico so Muslim service members can have a "proper place" to worship, and one that "honors their religious heritage," officials say, not realizing that the mosque can also be used by the enemy to build a Fifth Column inside the Marines.

So much for today's Quote of the Day over at RealClear Politics ("Maybe multiculturalism is just a nice idea for people who haven't been bombed yet."), which looked like the twenty-first century's answer to "A conservative is a liberal who got mugged," up until I stopped by David Horowitz's web site.

Foolish ideas -- like multiculturalism -- unfortunately can cause people who should know better to concede the moral high ground to savages. For those of us who appreciate something that our pragmatic, range-of-the-moment administration does not -- the power and importance of philosophic ideas -- this building should serve as a reminder that the battle of ideas here at home must be fought unstintingly.
