    The Jihad Way
    By Cal Thomas
    October 3, 2007

    Former Pakistani President Benazir Bhutto, a moderate Muslim, was in Washington last week. I asked her how concerned the United States should be, especially when we see and hear radical talk from people such as Dr. Omeish.

    Speaking of the radicals, she told me "They are infiltrating [the United States and England]. What I am hearing is that they now want to buy people off [and] plant people in intelligence and the military."

    Mrs. Bhutto described the radicalization of Islam, which she said is virtually unchallenged in the Islamic world: "When I was a young girl, my Islamic teachers said everybody can have their own religion. Now they say you cannot [even] talk to others about their religion. You used to be able to marry anyone who is from the Abrahamic tradition — people of the Book — but [Muslims] are now taught you can't marry anyone [who doesn't have your] interpretation [of Islam]."

    Mrs. Bhutto says the West is losing the war against the radicals. On Oct. 18, she plans to return to Pakistan from exile to fight them and she wants to see a debate within Islam and more support for building mosques and publishing books based on moderate interpretations of Islam to counter the radicals.

    If I were an enemy of America and the West, my strategy would be what Mrs. Bhutto says is now happening: infiltrate important structures within which I could work to damage and destroy the West. Dr. Omeish uses the language and expresses the intensity of others who wish to overthrow America and Israel. One could give this movement and their intent a label. Call it "the jihad way."
