Quote of the day

Michael Scheuer, author of a new biography of Mr. bin Laden and head of the C.I.A.’s bin Laden unit in the late 1990s [and Georgetown Professor], thinks such enthusiasm is more than wishful thinking.

Mr. Scheuer says he believes that Americans, including many experts, have wildly misjudged the uprisings by focusing on the secular, English-speaking, Westernized protesters who are a natural draw for television. Thousands of Islamists have been released from prisons in Egypt alone, and the ouster of Al Qaeda’s enemy, Mr. Mubarak, will help revitalize every stripe of Islamism, including that of Al Qaeda and its allies, he said.

Throwing a bone to all those who think FLG is too Kumbaya on the recent Arab revolutions.

Now that you mention it, you can substitute "Inshallah" for "Kumbaya" throughout the song.

Books need burning, Allah, inshallah,
Books need burning, Allah, inshallah ...

And so on.
