Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 2-5-11-Sat.

leave a comment »

While the war drags on in Afghanistan into another month, hotspots around the world are flaring up. Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, and even VMI-Virginia Military Institute. VMI is hosting a “celebration” of the Muslim conquest of Christian Spain! I could barely believe my eyes to read this, but please read it at link #1:

1.) Virginia Military Institute (VMI) sponsors a conference which celebrates the conquest of Spain by Muslims. The list of events, speeches, speakers, etc. appears, at this time, to be very one-sided. Perhaps before they have the conference, they will present a more diverse panel and show how the Muslims treated Christians, and how the Muslims invaded Spain and did not respect cultural diversity of the Christians whose land they invaded.

2.) Diana West’s take on the VMI “East meets West” conference:

3.) More updates on the VMI controversy, they are now scrubbing the term “celebration” from their we site information on the conference. I also wonder why the word “crossing” instead of “conquest” is listed still? Link:
