I am traveling and therefore unable to host the live show this week. I’ll return at the regularly scheduled time one week from today. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. If you haven’t already, I recommend either listening to last week’s podcast (here), or checking out my interviews with the Ayn Rand Center’s Yaron Brook (here) and Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer (here).
Later today I plan to write a blog post discussing the so-called “name game” regarding Islam. With respect to the current (unfortunately undeclared by us) war, do we refer to the enemy’s ideology as “Islam”? Or do we use a modified terms such as “Islamism,” “Militant Islam” or “Islamic Totalitarianism,” etc., etc. This weekend I had the pleasure of speaking with Robert Spencer and Bosch Fawstin about it for a few hours, as well as attending a panel discussion devoted to the issue, and I’m looking forward to writing up my perspective and reading your comments.
