If I were to say anything, it would be that I think LGF has not been following global jihad as it used to, and I think that is a flaw, because global jihad has NOT slowed or stopped.

Actually, it has slowed. When was the last suicide bombing inside Israel? When was the last major Al Qaeda attack in a Western country? Where are the jihadis launching suicide attacks inside America?

If I’ve distanced myself somewhat from covering the jihad, it’s for two reasons:

1) It really has become less of an issue. There are still Islamic extremists out there, and I’m sure they intend to do us harm, but they seem to be pretty well contained at the moment.

2) A huge number of the so-called “jihad outrages” being promoted these days are outright phony stories promoted by bigots. I simply don’t trust very much of the information coming from the so-called “anti-jihad” blogs, because they engage in lying and fear mongering.
