Leo Hohmann, a news editor for WorldNetDaily and the author of the WND-published “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” joined Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt on his “Gun Owners News Hour” last month, where he argued that ordinary Muslim Americans are “Muslim in name only” and are not true followers of the Quran. By extension, Hohmann argued, “radical terrorists” are simply “dedicated” Muslims who devoutly abide by the prescriptions of the Quran.
“What is a radicalized Muslim?” Hohmann asked. “What does that concept even mean? In my estimation, what we are really talking about is a Muslim who actually believes the Quran and believes the Hadith. … Like we have pew-sitting Christians who don’t really know what’s in the Bible and they say they’re Christian but they don’t really live it, we have Muslims like that too and they’re fine people, and that’s why we get confused sometimes because we have a Muslim neighbor or we have a Muslim schoolteacher that we know, or a doctor, and they don’t seem radical to us. Well, you know, they’re Muslim in name only.”
“The enemy is not Muslims,” he continued, “the enemy is Islam. The enemy is Islam. And while in Christianity, for the most part, the more Christian you are, the more peaceful you’re going to be, it’s the opposite with Islam. The more dedicated you are and the more devout you are, the more likely you are going to either sympathize with these killers or become one yourself.”
