Seventeen years ago, America suffered a horrific attack that plunged our nation into a war that today has no end in sight. In part, that’s due to the fact that we haven’t been clear about who we are fighting and why.
Candidate Donald Trump recognized this reality and promised to respond, starting by replacing euphemisms like “terrorism” and “violent extremism” with a policy that established the actual source of the threat: “radical Islam” and its jihad-commanding doctrine, Sharia.
Yet, America’s strategy remains unmoored from that direction and we are no closer to victory than on 9/12. To the contrary, Sharia-supremacists are on the march worldwide, including here at home – albeit more stealthily, for the time being.
President Trump famously called on Muslim nations to “drive them out.” For seventeen years, we’ve tried settling for less, and must do so no longer.
