Norquist's Islamist Connections

Front Page Magazine carries this Frank Gaffney article about conservative Grover Norquist's ties to Islamist groups. It is introduced by David Horowitz, who calls it "the most disturbing that we at frontpagemag.com have ever published". Well it is disturbing, and it's worth reading in full.

You can chase that article with this post at Winds of Change, that documents and links to a number of articles that made up the build-up to this confrontation. It's absolutely nuts for the Bush administration to cater to these Islamist groups, which they apparently feel they must do for political reasons, when those same groups walk out of their White House photo-ops and proceed to denounce the administration left and right, and then continue their vocal and financial support for radical Islamist and terrorist causes. As Gaffney suggests, it's time for principled conservatives to isolate Norquist and hold up his activities for public scrutiny and debate, even if he is supposed to be on "our side".
